The way the system is designed is going to cause health insurance prices to accelerate, meaning that the cost of the subsidies will skyrocket, and the inability of the actual money to actually be spent twice means that we will have to come up with an additional $500Bn for Medicare as well.The doom and gloom naysayers claim that it will bankrupt the nation or some such, but neglect to say how.
no, coupling insurance and employment is stupid - an idiotic idea foisted upon us by the FDR administration. But decoupling insurance from employment no more requires that it be government run than the fact that I do not get auto insurance from my employer does.We'll all be unemployed because business owners are apparently only barely scraping by and will all have to close their doors if they have to pay a little more for health insurance, but it's vitally important that we keep making them shoulder this cost and not decouple insurance from employment.
Interesting. Remind me again what the debate over the Ryan Budget was about?The whole argument stops making sense pretty quickly. But it is extremely conservative. Change bad!! Even obviously good changes.
