“Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons. Doesn't seem right.”
You know what's ****ty...this plan and those that defend it. You just used the exact same words that Obama said yesterday in defending this quagmire. "That's it's junk insurance" and "that he's saving us". BS. Obama sold this plan time and time again with the notion that "If you like your plan, you can keep it." Knowing full well that wasn't the truth.
Report: Obama administration knew millions would be forced to change insurance
In other words he lied and sold Americans a scam and was totally dishonest about it. Just like the great used car salesman that he is.
Where are the cancellation victims who now stand to pay less for more insurance or even just the same amount for a better plan?
And if these millions of cancelled plans are “junk,” then why are so many of the Obamacare substitutes so vastly inferior and more expensive?
Not to mention that the so-called "Affordable" part relies on government subsidies (meaning taxpayers money) to help pay the difference for expensive and outrageous health insurance costs.
Face it Locke it's a **** plan that was written by the insurance and drug companies that the corporatists love because the state enforces their profits. The sooner we get rid of it the better. Even the Unions agree.
You need to broaden your resources if you truly think this. I agree that it helps corporations and insurance companies. But the way our healthcare system is set up, that was always going to be the case. Instead of harping on that, which is always going to be the case in the U.S., you could look at the positives. No one will ever be able to be denied the care they need anymore because the government has told insurance companies they can't. Projections show that over time, healthcare costs will decrease. They may not right away as people are reactive, but almost all objective economists agree that premiums will come down. People will get the care they need. That's the single most important thing. No one is going to have to die over treatable illnesses anymore. To me, that's more important than any monetary argument...
