All by design.
By the time midterms roll around half the population will be screaming bloody murder for a Public Option (which will evolve into Single Payer in short order).
Which is why I can’t understand the insurance industries support for the law.
That was the plan all along.
Another brilliant success by Obama.
Make private insurance so high you have to go to Government insurance.
1. Is that what happened in Extortion-Care Massachusetts?
2. What quotes do we have from “health” insurance CEOs that this is where it’s going?
Big set-up bailout of insurance lobby, invested in MBS scam and bank equities?
Yep, and if you look at the comments at the NY Slimes source article, the vast majority of them blame the insurance companies. They fail to see the fully INtentional consequences of 2,500+ pages of ObamaDoesn’tCare legislation with its tens of thousands of pages of regulations with all kinds of unfunded mandates.
This is the biggest lie told about the whole thing. Anyone who actually listened to Nancy Pelosi during the process would understand that the actual objective was to get their hands on all that money being handled by the insurance companies; i.e., take Federal control of a major part of the U.S. economy.
Being able to force us to pay for morning after pills and funding abortion was just a cherry on the pie for them.
It was NEVER about health care. It was NEVER about making health care affordable. It was ALWAYS about control and money!
Obamacare will never be repealed. Every election from now on will be about Republicans wanting to take away your "free" healthcare. You know, kids starving, grandma over the cliff, blah, blah, blah.
