    OK, that's really wildly off topic. What do you expect for a reply?

    Maybe the recognition that because a country is slightly less f*d up in one area doesn't mean the country is any less f*d up.

    Can you quote the part where they say it's the biggest middle class tax hike ever, please?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    What do you mean "locked in as a customer"? Most individual health insurance plans are month-to-month...some might require a contract for up to a year. I've never heard of one that "locked you in" for a long period of time...I'm not even sure that would be legal.

    what is it that prevents them from raising their rates?
    Supply and demand. And under the ACA, they won't be able to discriminate against you personally (unless you smoke) so you'll pay the same rate that they're charging everyone else of your age.

    The last refuge consumers have against monopolistic pricing is that, difficult though it may be, one can technically go without the good or service. But if you have both a monopolistic pricing scenario AND the IRS standing over you telling you to pay, what keeps the insurance companies from jacking their rates further?
    I'm confused why you think this is a monopolistic pricing scenario. Additionally, the ACA mandates that all insurance companies spend at least 80-85% of their premiums on health care. If they spend less than that, they have to reimburse all of their policy-holders for the difference.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
