Obama wants to fix our health care... this is awesome. BUT what is it going to do to the paychecks of those who have gone to college? Many of us college students are worried that we will get a huge pay cut.
Does anyone have any information on how this is going to effect the future of health care employees?

I don't know what ObamaCare will do to NON-Physician salaries and whether they will be capped or not. What I can surmise is that with ObamaCare private insurance companies will either go out of business, or limit what benefits they'll cover, or reduce reimbursement rates, leading to physicians NOT accepting some health plans, if any at all. Only those who can afford to pay out of pocket or for their OWN private individual or family plan will be seen.
I worked in several health related industries for a number of years from entry level to facility director. WHERE you work will give you a good idea of your salary and career potential. Upscale PRIVATE facilities are likely to pay more than PUBLIC facilities--but you have to be the best of the best! However a small private facility may not have the resources of say a large regional hospital/facility.

IF I were you I would get your foot in the door while you are in school making personal connections and getting some experience. The job market is VERY competitive right now, you need to be able to sell yourself as the "best of the best!"
I would apply to upscale private facilities and large regional centers.
