    You can’t run a two-tiered healthy/sick insurance system. If the risk pools aren’t merged, replete with higher rates for the former, you can’t pay for the latter.

    So if the young and healthy are able stay on their older, cheaper plans, where does all the necessary new money come from? Two readily apparent options: A tax increase, or a federal bailout of insurance companies. Either one of these would be positively radioactive politically. Absent either of those, insurance companies would jack up rates again to compensate, pulling the country around a major death spiral bend. There really are no good options left. Don't forget, every single Senate Democrat voted against Republicans' "keep your plan" fix in 2010, when it might have made a difference.....snip~
    True. Sad, but true.

    Which is utterly idiotic. It's like saying you should have to pay auto insurance your entire life, even if you don't own a car, just in case you decide to get one someday.

    Romney is as much a moron as Obama.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Republican rules in most states have a "split-apportionment" of delegates--the green papers..
    Republican rules in most states do not have a "closed" caucus or primary system..

    Now you see why.....those Democratic Senators are on the Bubble and panicking.

    You're not. Insurance is a gamble. You're betting you will get sick and need the insurance to cover the costs. The insurance companies are betting that you won't get sick and they'll make more money overall than they lose. If someone has no insurance and gets sick, they are responsible for 100% of their health care costs. It's that simple. It shouldn't cost you a penny.

    Re: It's offical Obamacare enrollment is low.

    What don't you like about the 106,185 number??
    Which is far above the Massachusetts number by percents with a much more complicated systemm..
    Which party insisted on state exchanges??

    Yes.....indeed it is a great talking point. When exemplifying failure on a massive level and all hand-crafted by Democrats, Liberals and the Progressives.

    Re: It's offical Obamacare enrollment is low.



    Keep in mind that the definition of "enrolled" according to the Obama adminstration is the following:

    "It [enrollment] will count people who have purchased a plan as well as those who have a plan sitting in their online shopping cart but have not yet paid.".....snip~

    Maybe because yours just don't add up? What were you afraid to produce a link.

    UPDATE: Only 26,794 of Obamacare enrollments came through the federal exchange. The rest, 79,000+ have received their coverage through state exchanges. Here is a state-by-state breakdown of the number of people who have enrolled through the federal exchange.....snip~
