    Universal care is Socialism! Just ask those Communists in Japan, Germany and England.
    I'd agree that the number of new IRS agents is likely exaggerated, but aside from that it still sums things up pretty nicely.

      Gee, what happens if you mandate coverage requirements AND mandate loss ratios AND mandate what is an 'acceptable' premium to a regulator?

        Reminds me of the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew in Florida in the early 1990s. Property insurance companies raised rates to cover their losses, and the Florida state legislature responded by passing a law that capped rate increases. Just about every major property insurance company said, "see you later."

        In that case, at least, the Florida legislature had enough sense to revise the law.

        Mandating rates never works; nature has a way of impacting claims in a way that no one can predict.

          I like conservatives newfound faith in insurance companies! I'm curious who else you plan on getting into bed with next.....used car salesmen....the tobacco lobby.....Republicans!!!

          I think you people need to find some new champions. So an insurance company can't make obscene profits so they don't want to participate in coverage. I'm shocked...

            • This is why I actually like it when conservitives post where they get their info from! Opening up joe's townhall link, two pop up ads hit you. One has Obama living a secret double life, the other asks you to call on Congress to immediately impeach him. Clearly we're dealing with an unbiased website here.

              But the stupidity of the article he posted is breathtaking. Everybody gets the same money to purchase insurance from the gubmint in the form of a tax credit, so that solves all problems. I'm wondering where the pot of gold is at the end of the rainbow, but I stopped reading before the end.

              This "plan" is a laughingstock for several reasons. 1) It does nothing about people being too poor to afford coverage, and therefore getting no benefit from a tax write-off. You know, the people who may choose to waste money on stupid stuff like food. 2) As best I can tell it makes no provision for insurance charging you up the wazzoo for a pre-existing condition. It just helpfully assumes that everybody would be crazy not to have insurance under this plan, so if you're always insured, no pre-existing conditions!!! Woohoo!!!

              So I'm forced to wonder, are conservatives really this simple, or do they post dumb stuff just to be heard? I already exposed Fishy in a blatant lie a few days ago regarding the auto industry bailout. Not sure if this poster is trying the same tactic.

                      Another delay. This time out of pocket caps. http://www.forbes.com/sites/theapoth...ed-until-2015/

                      Sen. Paul says not without Congressional action (law). I wonder, though, since Congre$$ pretty much abdicates how something is to work to Executive Decree via the Federal Register.

                                do you even read the links you post? NOTHING is "already happening" since not a single insurance exchange is yet operational.

                                "estimates" are not data.
