A major reason for bankruptcies in the US is because of medical issues. You have a health problem, which can result in a lost job, which leads to lost health insurance, which can result in bankruptcies and unpaid medical costs that, in turn, drive up hospital costs. You also have the bankrupt people more likely to collect safety net services like TANF, SNAP, disability and so forth.
And FYI, emergency room rates did fall in MA, though it is not clear that it's a direct result of Romneycare: Emergency Department Visits Down For First Time Since Health Reform, Survey Finds | CommonHealth
At a minimum, Romneycare has certainly not devastated health care in MA, or the state's economy.
Obamacare is certainly a much better for the insurance companies than a single-payer system.....a great deal for the insurance company (they get to keep 15% to 20% as overhead) but not so much of a good deal for "total costs" of medical care.
However, unless they are seriously cooking the books (which is possible), their net profit margin is a reasonable 3.7%Industry Browser - Healthcare - Health Care Plans Industry - Company List and has been in that range for at least a few years now. (In comparison, soft drink companies have an 11% net profit margin; Coca-Cola's margins are over 20%.)
Obamacare does throw insurers a large number of customers. However, insurers will also be expected to pay out a great deal more, since they can no longer deny pre-existing conditions, and yes, have to rebate revenues that used to go straight to the bottom line.
I.e. If their margins do go through the roof for the next few years, we'll see it. And can adjust aspects like the rebates, as required.
The benefits of Obamacare will almost certainly be less than its proponents insist, and its problems will almost certainly be nowhere near as bad as its detractors insist.

Keep the good parts of Obamacare, but repeal the other 99%.
IOW, repeal the individual mandate and the part that costs $150 million/year. Keep the part that repeals the insurance companies' exemption to anti-trust laws.
If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
You quote one post, insult me, and blame another post?
In a perfect scenario, sure, I'd agree, we ask them only to win.
In reality, this is not what happens. We do not always win every skirmish and every battle, and sometimes we lose someone.
I have a few family members that could tell you all about it.
Anyhow, this is as silly as my wife nagging me about my use of "your" instead of "you're".
