    the end game was always single payer
    so collapse this system (that was created by the govt) and ride in to the rescue with single payer (govt "fixing" the problem that govt created in the first place)
    In fact the more govt has been involved in our health care the more expensive it has gotten. From govt mandates and restricted markets in the first place to thing, cant wait to see next

    Replace it with Bernies plan. Barry was only saving us $2400 a year.
    Bernie says he'll save us $5800 a year.:hysterical:

    Fire up the printing presses... We have plenty green ink... We have a selling tool called The Cardone Group. Cardone says "There is no shortage of money in this country and if it was, they would print more"...

    It says that the financial end of Obamacare "should stabilize" once the younger people sign up and pay their higher premiums.
    It's already been determined that the younger people aren't signing up, and aren't going to sign up.
    This administration is incompetent.

    They are okay with this Obamacare failing though, then they can force the socialized medicine (sole provider) down our throats.......as our savior.

    The only way the younger crowd will sign up, is that if they go to work for a company that doesn't offer health insurance. My daughter works for a jewelry firm that only owns 2 stores. They don't offer insurance. Yes, she went out and had to purchase a policy or get fined. Then, at the turn of this year, her premiums skyrocketed an extra $2500 a year. She could have not applied for insurance and come out ahead.

    Barry did say that someone was going to be $2,500 to the good, but I must have misunderstood, since I thought it was the American people.

    Fact: We have had companies that offered insurance use loopholes and demoted full time employees to part-time and not had to offer health insurance and put the burden on the employee to get it themselves or get fined.. Never, in this country's history has this happen in this manner or magnitude.... Manditory "anything" does not work... Even auto insurance, you still have people rolling down these highways without auto insurance. Don't say it doesn't happen.. Even the insurance companies are saying it doesn't work, and they,of all companies stand to make billions off the ACA..

    Yeah, that's true, but the ones who save that money are the ones who don't pay for premium health insurance... It's provided for them..

    They (Insurance Companies) are making billions more with all the new customers they've been "gifted"....thanks to the ACA......and they don't really care if it "works" or not for the American people......They just care about the money.... That's why many, if not all, of the State exchanges offer basically worthless policies at the "affordable" level when subsidies are factored in.... If you want to pay through the nose, in a manner of speaking, then you can find relatively okay insurance.......

    Well, at least when it comes to mandating that a person must purchase a product from a for profit Company....and then that Company, in this case Insurance companies, take taxpayer subsidies to make even more profit........ I was never for that aspect of the ACA..... The "mandate" should be rescinded.....Make The Insurance industry compete for business based on the quality and price of their product as opposed to offering "junk" policies with exorbitant deductibles that people must purchase......especially the lower income group that falls between qualifying for medicaid
    and those who can't afford the higher priced plans that actually provide a fair benefit..... They get stuck with wasting needed funds for nearly worthless insurance...



    I agree to a point about auto Insurance...... at least with auto insurance, it is not anywhere near the cost of health insurance.......and auto accidents can be very very costly especially if fatalities are involved or very serious injuries....so the risk can be high.....and yet the premiums are at least "affordable for most with a decent driving record, when compared to health insurance. I haven't heard of an auto insurance policy with a 13,500 annual deductible and then a 25 % co-pay after.......... Let me qualify that as representing the average car owner....not the guy with some rare collectable of a Lamborghini.... I'm sure those premiums are pretty steep...

    (And yes you are correct, we still have uninsured drivers on the roads)

    The ACA only requires that a person has health Insurance....not they must sign up through an exchange.......It better to get insurance through an employer if you can...... The only time you are required to "sign up" is if you don't have any other healthcare insurance....or be fined....

    Happens to a lot of people.....and that is something that needs to be addressed........ It happens because there is nothing that stops the Companies from doing that.......
