ACROSS STATE LINES This is the Right Wing-Nuts plan for healthcare for all. Allowing people to purchase private health insurance across state lines will not bring down cost. It will not because private healthcare providers cannot give affordable healthcare because they have to make a profit and they do this by cutting services, rationing services to the carrier. They cannot survive if they do not make a profit. That is how they operate. Government can provide affordable healthcare because they do not have to make a profit. Medicare and Medicaid providers do not make a profit. They just provide medical care. Allowing people who cannot afford to buy, even across state lines, will not work because private providers cannot afford to cover them for what they can afford to pay. Can private healthcare provide a family of four healthcare for $400 a month and not charge them high co-payments and deductibles? Absurd. A fantasy. Unreal. A fairy tale. Ridiculous, illogical, senseless and silly.
