    All you idiot Obamacare supporters whose knowledge of health insurance and much less Medicare is equal to my knowledge and Experiences as the size of a thimble!

    READ this and get it through your heads OBAMACARE is destroying health CARE!
    A) Insurances companies are 22 on list of top 50 profitable average 4%
    B) Insurance companies medical loss ratio (MLR) averages 80%!
    C) This means NOW with Obamacare.. idiot Obama's stupid bald face lie:

    If you like your health-care plan, you keep your health-care plan. Nobody is going to force you to leave your health-care plan. If you like your doctor, you keep seeing your doctor.
    I don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care."
    Obama Touts Health Care Plan In Press Conference - ABC News

    LIAR!!

    "I first wrote about this problem in May of 2010, describing it as a “hidden time bomb,” warning that private insurers
    “may decide to exit the [individual-insurance market] altogether” because there isn’t much room to improve MLRs in the individual market. And, sadly, I was right. Aetna has announced it is withdrawing from the individual markets in Indiana, Colorado, and other states. Other insurers have similarly withdrawn from Minnesota, Texas, Virginia, and Illinois. I won’t bore you with a laundry list of further examples.

    And it’s not just insurers who are dropping out. In September of 2010, McDonald’s announced that, without a waiver from the MLR regulations, the company would be forced to drop health coverage for 29,500 hourly-wage employees. (After the ensuing media firestorm, HHS granted the waiver.)

    This is why at least 16 states have applied for waivers to the MLR regulations: Maine (approved); New Hampshire, Nevada, Kentucky, and Iowa (partially approved); North Dakota and Delaware (rejected); and Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Kansas, Indiana, Michigan, Texas, North Carolina, and Oklahoma (under review). State governments understand that Obamacare’s MLR regulations will force most insurers to stop offering coverage to people who aren’t in the employer-sponsored system: the very people in whose name the law was passed.

    n fact, the CBO says a full repeal of Obamacare would reduce the budget deficit by $540 billion over the next 10 years.

    Obamacare | Obamacare's broken promises | The Daily Caller

    But remember OBAMA said we'd cut the $4 trillion deficit by saving 1/10th of one percent on health care costs or $2.5 billion a year...
    ONLY PROBLEM it will take 1,600 YEARS!!!

    Obama should have "by-passed" the insurance companies when he had the chance, and introduced a universal healthcare system that is accessible to every American, irrespective of their ability to pay.

    This "band-aid" approach allows too many private self-interests to feed at the "trough," which not only increases the medical and administrative costs but fragments the efficient operation of the system.

    Virtually every modern democracy in the world, with the exception of the US, has adopted some form of a public healthcare system that provides services for all its citizens, and at a fraction of the cost.

    Unlike the US, the sick and elderly are not subject to high rates of personal bankruptcy based because they are not subject to soaring medical costs.

    It's almost like they just stop listening when you start talking. Wonder why...

    Well, time to replace Obamacare with a single-payer system, then, isn't it?
