Page 8, Lines 4-7.
Of course, nothing wrong with putting thousands of people out of business because a few leftists find it politically advantageous to whine about how evil they are.In the U.S. this would mean a downsizing of the private sector, but insurance companies have already proven they cannot be trusted so I say this is their loss.
Be more specific. What's this "foul play" you speak of?People wouldn't be advocating for UHC if there weren't foul play happening.
Well, the stated purpose of H.R. 676 is:The law makes private insurance more useful and less redundant. People will still rely on private insurance for some of the things UHC doesn't cover. It will make insurance plans cheaper and less bureaucratic.
To provide for comprehensive health insurance coverage for all United States residents, and for other purposes .
Which makes me wonder, if they're providing comprehensive health insurance coverage, what's left for the private sector?
