totally disagree. it would be coming out as planned if they could roll out the baby steps designed to get everyone hooked on this. But when the unions and the gubment workers rebel, no, it absolutely ain’t comin off as planned.

Well, no there is a third option---perhaps a better option---which is hospitals begin offering their own insurance thereby eliminating the middle man.

BTW, everyone cites England as "single payer," but they aren't. England has private health insurance. A friend of mine was treated over there under her husband's company's private plans. They are quite expensive.

I wonder if fears of personal security are limiting the willingness of socialists to serve on the Death Panel (IPAB)?

We have a boat and our next door neighbor is a live aboard who works for Blue Cross. Talked to him the other night about Obamacare. Apparently the insurance companies are mad as heck about the navigators. He says not only will they make a salary but they will be paid piecemeal for each individual they help navigate. The navigators will be making more money than insurance employees paid to do the same thing. That takes away from the insurance companies employees jobs, which is his job.
This crap just goes round and round.

There’s about a dozen levels of consequences for any major change in health policy. We’re just discovering level two.

Who picked ages “18-34” to study people not buying insurance? What about older healthy people?

That's the group that will get the least subsidy. For all age groups, the cost of Obamacare to the person or family is a function of their income (not their ages). So a younger person with the same income as an older person will be paying the same for Obamacare - although the older person gets a higher subsidy because the total cost of Obamacare is higher the older you get. Younger healthier people will be paying in at a higher rate than they do right now, use less services, and therefore subsidize the older folks.

ObamaCares’s only goal was to bankrupt private health insurance companies. Pre-existing conditions? Imagine running home-owners insurance that way:

Geko: You say your house burned down yesterday? What’s that got to do with me, mate?

ObamaVoter: I’d like to purchase an homeowners policy to pay for the damages....
