Not sure what your talking about. Yes Obama care needs tweaking and changing but it is working. AFA us meeting goals and people are signing up. ACA is
not failing it is doing very well. I do not like AFA as it is but it is actually working.
What did he lie about? You can keep your current plan? Yeah well maybe he made a mistake or maybe he lied but that does not indicate AFA is bad or
doing badly. It is accomplishing the goals it was designed to accomplish.
It was designed to put the greedy insurance companies out of business. This is not a failure. it is working as intended. Actually the goal is to drive
it to single pay system where Government is soul insurance but that will take awhile.
We can certainly argue that government being only insurance could be a bad thing but it will be cheaper.
Drive the insurance companies out of business? Are you high? Did you not just read the OP. Obamacare is designed to bail insurance companies out so
they DON'T go out of business and according to the OP Obama is trying to appropriate funds from other sources to do this. A backdoor bailout so to
Liberals who say that Obamacare is designed to go towards a single payer system are deluding themselves. First off this bill was WRITTEN by the
insurance companies. What makes you think they would write a bill to willingly put themselves out of business? Second, if you haven't been paying
attention during Obama's entire presidency, he does EVERYTHING in his power NOT to let corporations go out of business, taxpayers and their money be
damned. Obamacare was conceived with the idea to make the insurance companies happy while providing insurance to more people in America, win-win for
both parties. However, in implementation, that didn't work out well and it looks like this bill is just a disaster.
One more thing, in order for us to go towards a single payer system, Obamacare would have to fail completely. It would have to be a last desperation
move to save the country, because if this bill goes down, it will take our economy with it. Putting the insurance companies out of business would put
TONS of people out of work. These corporations provide many jobs for many Americans, and destroying that industry (no matter how corrupt...) would
probably push us right back into a recession if it doesn't outright destroy the economy. Single payer is probably the last thing on their minds right
now. That is why Obama keeps going around Congress *cough cough*breaking the law*cough cough* to "fix" Obamacare, not make it fail
