The plan all along was to pass Obamacare, let it fail and move to a single-payer government plan. That was the Communists’ goal. Europe had bitten the bullet on socialized medicine and Europeans were told it was a good deal. So, US elites had to have it. We have learned that it isn’t that good a deal. It works like the Veterans’ Hospital system.
Obamacare shifted costs to the healthy by force. Many of these chose not to buy health insurance, because they never use it.
Government caused the healthcare cost explosion with excessive subsidies over decades. The Healthcare Cartel has no incentive to reduce costs like a normal industry, because government keeps bailing them out.
The current replacement Bills shift cost to 50 and 60 year- olds, because that’s where the money is. This is just more wealth redistribution. Higher costs should be based on risk, defined as healthcare spending history.
The victims in this scam are the healthy. 50% of the population is healthy and spends an average of $274 per year on healthcare. Many of these get their insurance through their employer.
The Healthcare Cartel has provided ever more costly treatments, but no cures. It also orders unnecessary tests to cover its ass and gouge patients. Drugs for life-threatening illness are way overpriced. Hospitals have become dangerous to your health and your bank account.
Congress won’t own up to the scam, because the Healthcare Cartel is too big to fail and they won’t admit that excessive government subsidies have caused this dilemma.
The Elites, the Communists and the Crazies like expensive healthcare. The elites want to live forever, the Communists want to destroy the US economy and the Crazies just like free stuff. Rich foreigners who want to live forever also like expensive US healthcare.
The rest of us would prefer normal healthcare at a fair price. We may not be getting this, ever.
