Why does the GOP hate health care reform? Simple: look where the savings actually come from: reducing the amount of money people pay insurance companies. Health care reform would reduce the insurers' profits.
Rich people stand to lose money.
That is abhorrent to a Republican. They don't give a shit about your health or your finances or which doctor you see; the GOP is protecting the wealth of its owners.
That they are able to sell "I will take money from relatively poor people and give it to enormously rich people" as being for the benefit of those relatively poor people speaks volumes about the quality of information in the American media and the integrity of its journalists.
