There is winners and losers in anything...drug companies win big for obamacare in general
insurance companies get a double edged sword..they get alot more people, but they cant charge as much, and cant deny people...so, a walmart philosophy
of profit through numbers verses cherry picking.
Still, the biggest losers are the major insurance companies because they cant kick people off and jack up prices to insane amounts...they of course
are the most vocal about how obamacare will kill grandma..grandma in this case being their quarterly profit statement...however, they certainly aren't
going out of business.they just have to restructure their profit model.
Sorry, I can't feel sorry for the monster insurance companies, or the "grassroots" movements they started (snickers). That was simply transparent.
The cap and trade thing is different though...I am truely confused about this whole thing...part of me believes we should do whatever we can to try
and reduce carbon emmissions, partially to do with reduction of greenhouse gases (which I don't believe will be enough to effect things significantly
enough), but also to stimulate innovation and invention..even if there was no climate destablization...its high time we leave fossel fuels for better
and greener tech...if anything, just to stop kneeling to the middle east.
But ya...anyhow, in any decision, there are winners and losers...if tomorrow the government came out with a magic pill that made everyone young and
immortal...no doubt the coffinmakers union would cry foul and real estate agents would jump for joy.
