    His posts are akin to liberal blogspam blaming the Republicans for all of California's problems, even though they are one of the most liberal states ever. Nothing is the Democrats' fault if it isn't done literally 100% their way.

    Yes. The bill had to be written in a way to make resistant to their attempts to misrepresent it to the public. Remember the "death panels?" Even though they weren't, the benefit had to be removed because the Republicans were distorting the truth.

    They took away market competition back in the 70's, with HMO mandates, and requiring comprehensive coverage on all regular major medical plans. They took away competition from pharmaceuticals, by mandating that insurance companies cover drugs, and the same with physicians by requiring that physician office visits be covered. THis has made rates rise because the consumer is left out of the loop, doesn't need to shop around for a good value, and the consumer has no idea what he/she is spending, thus overutilization occurs.

    Insurance companies wanted HMOs. You can't blame that on the government.

    Secondly, has your analysis netted-out the medical benefits of mandated care? Maybe it reduces cost because problems are treated when they are less expensive.

    I CAN blame the government for complying and mandating them. I don't care what the insurance companies wanted. The government makes it an issue of law.

    I was a kid in the 60's. Back then, medical insurance covered unexpected catastrophic problems and emergencies. When you needed to go to the doctor, you made an appointment, and went and paid your $20 to be seen. If you needed a prescription, you went and got it filled. Doctors and pharmaceuticals had to be competitive in order to get you to pay for their services. Nowadays, that has been taken away, and in a free market, competition keeps prices at a minimum.
