    Black, that is so wrong, on so many different levels that it disqualifies you from further discussion on the subject.

    Look how the lemmings flock to defend the indefensible.

    The fact that you, and so many others, have blinded yourselves to such an obvious reality is what's most wrong about it.

    Sunk cost. They simply don't want to admit they were sold a bill of goods.

    that is also not true. I worked for a company whose home office was in California. Their employees in all states were covered by Blue Cross of Illinois.

    But my point remains valid. No individual can buy a policy except in the state where he resides. If that was done away with, there would be much more competition and lower premiums

    then I suggest that you go to Costa Rica for your heart bypass surgery.

    those rankings are pure unadulterated bullshit.

    Your point about individual is valid except Jan 1, 2016 under the ACA companies could have sold across state lines, no one to my knowledge did. Too many regulations from state to state.

    Can you provide a cite from ACA to verify that? I never heard that, but if you say it was so, then you should be able to verify it for us
