Here is an article title that should make your skin crawl: Insurers warn Obamacare is unsustainable, expect premiums to rise again. Now, watch the spin by the government and by the people who want socialized medicine. They never let facts get in the way of a good story. First, they wanted Obamacare but say they knew it wouldn’t work because it wasn’t enough. Now they will need complete control of the healthcare system to well, you know, create a complete disaster.
In this article “the CEO of insurance provider Aetna says it’s still too early to declare the federal health care program a failure but the company ‘continues to have serious concerns about the sustainability of the public exchanges.'” So, what part of federal health care program a failure do people not get?
Trust me, I am not feeling bad or sympathetic for these greedy insurance company bastards. They are still raking it in outside of the health exchange. They did this by jacking up the rates to match those inside the exchange and the problem is that the rates will NEVER come down again. When is the last time you saw tuition for schools go down? That will be Obamacare’s legacy: really, really high premiums. So now they have us all by the balls. They will leave the exchange or we will be taxed to bail them out. Yes, that is right. You are paying a second mortgage for your insurance premium and then you will be taxed some more to make these fat cats fatter. It may seem like I am playing both sides here. Do I hate the government or do I hate the insurance companies? The answer is yes.*
