    Obamacare might work if there were not-for-profit insurance companies like here, but it can't with insurance companies jacking high profits out of the cash flow.
    Which is what is wrong with healthcare mandates. The insurance companies gleefully went along with it because they were thrilled about the concept of a captive customer base.

    According to reports here, it is what Obama had to give them to make them go along. If there was to be change, they wanted more $ and got it.

    A politician here proposed that our provincial health agency go into the for-profit insurance in post Obamacare America. An insurance man he preached there was enough profit in it we would be able to expand health and dental care 200%

    I thought is was a great idea, since we run a not-for-profit insurance company now. It was rejected for many reasons. I figured Americans wouldn't care that a Canadian provincial government was paying its way with their money since they have been lining the pockets of Wall street anyway for the past hundred years

    my experience has been take it or leave it at whatever job i was working at the time. then premiums and copays got ridiculous. i have pretty good insurance, too. i would trade it for medicare in a heartbeat.

    it was always going in this direction. Truman wanted to fix it before it became a massive problem, and we probably should have listened to him. anyway, that's my opinion, based on what other countries have done. you have yours, and i just disagree.

    Funny... The guy it's named for seemed to have no trouble getting reelected, but you seem to skip over that.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Nothing funny about it.

    Obama...the most politically motivated, most lying politician in the most lying Party...not surprising he suckered voters into electing him.

    Obamacare...the worst, most damaging and free choice denying legislation to ever be shoved down the American people's throat by a party that doesn't care if the people didn't want it.

    Ah. So because of Obamacare, everybody else lost but the guy who it was named after. And that is your definitive 'proof' that the ACA is a failure.

    Do YOU even believe the stuff you write?

    That's not surprising for two reasons. One, the obamacare **** did not hit the fan until late 2013 when millions, myself included started receiving the cancellation letters on individual health insurance policies.....followed by the disasterous rollout of "healthcare.gov". Two, African Americans understandably went to the polls on election day to vote for the first African American president just as they did in 2008. If the presidential election had occurred in 2014, I have my doubts that he would have been re-elected, or if he had, it would have been by a razor thin margin.

    .
    Yep...in his first post midterm election in 2010, in his own way, he admitted that obamacare was vastly unpopular. He did not care. His His slogan was: Let's not refight previous battles.

    They don't know where to put all that money! Hahaaaaa! What a bleak situation.

    Fewer employees, more automation, less company overhead...

    More unemployed, bigger national debts, higher taxes and inflation, higher living costs, more dependency, bigger national debts...
