    What? Yeah shutting down the government has been proven to be harmful to the country.

    Are you suggesting Obamacare has been proven to overall be harmful to the country?

    Re: House Bill Defunds Health Care

    Is a law a policy?
    Since the Repubs have already stated their wish to kill Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security,
    this would set a precedent NO President would allow.
    I now must call it a tie for first between Voting Wrongs Acts and Defunding Laws.

    IMHO it has little to do with logistics and everything to do with maximizing profits and conservative ideology of making sure nobody gets anything for "free". Healthcare profits are absolutely fantastic for those on top so they will fight to the death to keep it that way. Conservatives are already in a tizzy over people getting food for free, the prospect of them getting more or better healthcare has them even more outraged.

    I'm suggesting that a 35 year low in labor participation along with more part-time work has been a detriment to the overall economy. It is also noteworthy that companies are now beginning to offload their employees to the newly created, although not ready for prime time, exchanges...

    Insurance companies DO NOT GAMBLE. They have actuaries that calculate the the risk and they use that to decide how much the premium would cost. And they do expect that there will be some cost in coverage.
