    Yes, the people elected a president that during a horrible downturn, focused not on jobs and the economy, but rather putting together a system that will provide is with less healthcare, of a lower quality, and bankrupt the nation (even further) in the process. Oh the things some are proud of.

    Almost every marginal Democrat lost his/her seat in 2010. Wonder why?

    Not really surprising honestly. Not every President carries the House and Senate.

    The 2010 election was a referendum on Obamacare.

    So let's say this 80/20 plan kills that year-to-year reserve...what happens in a "bad" year? What if they need to spend more than 80% on medical pay outs? What if they have to spend more than is paid in for some reason? What happens at that point?
    What I have read is that insurance companies make their money by investing the premiums.
    I may be wrong.

    In some people's mind that metaphor is an accurate description of reality.

    I have no idea what your talking about. I'm sure it made sense to you, but then lots of things make sense to you that nobody else understands.

    In your dreams. You're so consumed by hatred for the President that you are unable to think rationally.
