    Who knew providing free birth control to the promiscuous would be so expensive? Obama promised everything could be free and costs would go down, so what's the issue?

    Or, in two or four years, there will be sufficient Republicans in the House and Senate to repeal Obamacare, if the courts haven't already stripped it of meaningful effect beforehand.

    I don't doubt you're absolutely correct. At which point some of us will start counting the days until the end of our lives because I will NOT take Government money for my healthcare.

    Helix its rationale like yours thats got us in the current mess we're in.

    You blame the insurers for hospitals priceshifting because illegal aliens use emeegency rooms for a free dr appointment.

    Yoy blame insurers for Obama's destructive healthcare law that imposed new mandates on who they should cover. ( the last time the govt enforced mandates on large private entities it caused the sub-prime collapse )

    You blame insurers for Americans increasingly growing fat asses and the numerous health problems that are associated with that burden the rest of us with higher cost.

    The prerequisite short sightedness that comes with being a liberal is getting really old.


    Obama Care is and was always meant to be a tax, a way to redistribute from the middle class to the verry poor, because THATS who's going to be paying new "tax"/penalty.

    In 2018 a 40% tax on "Cadillac" health plans goes through that will force people off of their employers ins.
    But.... corporations are all evil! Making money is evil! Rich people are evil!

    BUT OBAMA PROMISED! THAT INSURANCE RATES WOULD GO DOWN! So this CAN'T be true.

    Oh, BTW, coverage for pre-existing conditions also has been cancelled.

    Everyone except those of us who won't take Government healthcare. They can send me the card and tell me I'm covered. That doesn't mean I ever have to use it.

    Why would you not take something that you pay for? Thats like buying a gallon of milk then throwing it in the trash because you don't like cows. That logic is kind of twisted.

    Just because I pay for something doesn't mean I should take it. Ever hear of the crime called "Accepting Stolen Property". THAT is what I believe Government healthcare is.... Stolen Property. Stolen from the other people who pay for it as well; since my taxes are not going to cover my entire costs. More importantly it's a matter of Principles over Practicality. The US Government has no legal or Constitutional mandate to involve themselves in the heathcare industry.

    Yeah, then the guys with the helipads and million dollar buildings will be Government employees... SUCCESS!
