    LOL, and what would have happened to the rates had the healthcare bill not been passed? Of course, they are going to say they have to raise rates because of Obamacare, Insurance companies were the biggest opponents to the bill! So, now they have perfect scapegoat when they jack up their rates, even though they were going up regardless, just like they have been for years.

    The healthcare bill fell far short of containing costs, but to actually believe that the rates are only going up because of "Obamacare" is ridiculous.

    Actually insurers SUPPORTED the bill.
    Rates rose explicitly because of mandates in the bill. Had the bill not been passed they would not have risen nearly as much.

    Some facts in your next post would be a welcome change.

    LOL, says the guy who makes outlandish claims without posting any evidence to back up this post. And just the fact that you actually believe that Insurance companies support the bill shows me enough about your intelligence. I'm done with this thread.

    I know I said I was done with this thread, but I HAD to comment that apparently reading fascistsoup.com would make me informed and less of a simp. Thanks for the laugh....honestly.

    There were actually two links there.
    But if you have something--anything--to show health insurers resisted Obamacare tooth and nail then please post it.
    But you can't. Because they didn't. They were onboard, smelling a new pool of healthy insureds that would make for revenue flow.

    You are an uninformed turd of continental proportions.

    Once he's been unmasked as an ignoramus his only choices are admit he's wrong, insist he's right despite all the evidence, or disappear. And #1 ain't happening.
