Ignore the fact that government lack of regulation CAUSED both the 1929 and 2008 Crash. Someone less right wing partisan would argue the GOP in both instances fought hard to block and gut any attempt to help in the recovery. (the GOP was for TARP under BushII then firmly against it under Obama )
The Government didn't force banks to make marginal loans... The banks were running out of prime loans so they begged for changes to 'help' those they traditionally discriminated against. The CONs make great hay out of Fannie and Freddie losing so much money but overlook much of the loss was misrepresented loans from the semi sacred private sector, the laundry list of banking scandals to include BOA's latest and now record penalties show this.
But ignore facts to try and twist history as part of the CON game!
You ignore every good example of how government regulation has stabilized our economy with no real proof it is the government increases prices (hasn't in the food sector) slower service (hasn't in the auto industry) Crappier service... hell the private sector has that one sown up- if you get out of the house much and deal with it much.
My wife and I are self insured and been that way for at least a decade now. We have seen the crappy ugly side of healthcare. We gave up pretending being under insured was a responsible thing to do. We both served in the Army so 'every man for himself' isn't our credo. We both know if we really needed a crappy insurance plan it would not pay enough to keep us out of bankruptcy.
As far as I know our insurance meets the ACA requirements so we can keep our insurance. If it doesn't we won't scream "our insurance was dropped!" No Sir we wil buy the plan that best fits us and is ACA compliant.
Don't know if you are married or single but for couples of one each of the sexes, having preventative and treatment coverages for both penises and vaginas is a very good thang....
