    all aboard!
    Uh...she did.

    I see you still hide quotes, I think it is sad that a poster has to go to such lengths to avoid debate...on a forum.

    What exactly are you afraid of?

    Yeah, like they were doing before reform. Shocking, just shocking.

    They spent huge sums of money to make sure the public option got killed, and it did. They tried to block the overhead cap (I forget what they call it) that requires a certain percentage of their total spending must be on health care rather than administrative stuff, but that attempt failed.

    edit: Medical Loss Ratio, apparently.

    No, because that ER bill isn't going to be covered by the insurance policy you signed up for after the fact.

    If they are using similar methods to pool the individual market, then Obamacare could have a drastic effect on small business premiums, co-pays, and deductibles. In mass, they saw drastic rises in all three as companies dealt with the extra burden pf being pooled with the individual market that was full of high risk plans

    Not sure what that has to do with what I said, but there is really little reason it should. At the end of the day, the only issue are the finds and s Hirt term fees. Preventing passing those on, numbers I've seen, would still be less of an increase than we saw I've or six years ago.

    Now the public option would have been more affordable. And UHC better still. But what we see is more likely insurance companies taking advantage of the situation, politicians and talking heads doing more spreading if disinformation instead of trying to work through these issues.
