Maybe I did fart, but its not gonna cost the taxpayers 93 TRILLION DOLLARS....
It wasn't designed to ever really work in the first place. I'm fairly certain the Democrats went with this "exchange" garbage to appease the GOP
just enough to get it passed.
When it fails miserably everyone will be looking for a better solution, the solution we should have gone with in the first place: single-payer.
You can spin it anyway you like but its still a bailout for the healthcare industry and especially for the insurance companies. One third of
americans were uninsured because of the outrageous rates they have been charging now for decades, so in comes the government dresses up the pig with
some lipstick and viola we have a winner.
A better situation would have been anlaysing WHY healthcare is so expensive in the states and working out solutions from there. Of course it would be
the equivilant of opening up a can or worms, because you would have to tackle dozens of inter-related problems simultaneously while admitting we have
had croney capitalism all along.
We dont need nationalised healthcare, we dont need insurance exchanges, we need normal supply and demand AND anti-trust laws enforced. Go after the
too big to fail, put some executives in prison AND ALLOW bad decisions to become fatal.
