    The insurance companies are "regulated" by the States and the States like to muck up the market. Some States only allow a chosen few to insure their citizens. Others do the choosing by which companies will pay bribes to do so. There were no free market of any considerable extent in the US. One of the ideas that the Republicans wanted to propose when Obama Care was being forced on us would be to require that States have an open market so competition and variety would lower the cost and provide better coverage for the majority of those who could be insured. And of course for the remainder who have preexisting conditions that cannot be covered under any reasonable insurance provider a government or government/nonprofit-org could cover them on some sort of plan.

    You were the one who said that this Congress should fund what they voted for. Guess what this Congress did not vote for Obama Care a previous one did so your complaint was not valid. And since this is a different Congress they can decide that not to fund it would be temporary solution until they can get it revoked.

    The only State you lose "everything" when you do bankruptcy would be Vermont or at least it used to be. Vermont may have changed it by now. Obvious that person would either have to be on Charity or on a government program of some sort. Just because there are some people who are that bad off doesn't mean that the remainder of the people have to be put on some sort of government program which would in the whole be more expensive for less benefit.

    Obamacare should be defunded, it is a worthless POS that is hurting every working American that already had coverage.

    Take partisanship out of it for just a second and take a moment to think how utterly ridiculous this situation is.
    This is a very simplistic view. You speak as if this is the same exact Congress as the one that passed this bill. It isn't. It's an effort to defund a bill they don't agree with. Apparently Congress has had time to read it now (hopefully Pelosi has) and they figured out it sucks.

    This is the first time I've been here that I had to do a double emoticon laugh.


    Insurance companies don't pay for the premium they collect it. Insurance companises do not have money that does not come from the insurees. I suppose you believe in perpetual motion machines also.

    They do have to pay reinsurers incase they go bankrupt or have huge losses. I'm certain when the reinsurers falter from this fiasco then the economy will be all but dead. Since so much development requires insurance to back it up. And the existing structures will eventually wear out sooner than you think.

    It's an effort to usurp legislative power that the GOP does not possess, and the general public is going to realize that. Anyone who blames this potential shutdown on Democrats is already a partisan hack and their opinion was never going to change on the subject.

    The same argument could be made against the Dems...
