    If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away, no matter what." Barack Obama 6-15

    As long as it's qualified under the terms of the bill which Obama tends to neglect everytime he makes that claim.

    You seem to be on a roll. That is not outlawing private insurance. Those are the regulations regarding grandfathering in current plans. Private insurance will still be available.

    As I've already 'splained to you, the mere use of the term "grandfathering" presumes that private insurance will eventually....shall we say....wither on the vine.

    No. It means that private plans will be available through the exchange. A great idea, IMO.

    The language of the bill suggests otherwise.

    I don't think so.

    Besides that, the health insurance industry has their tentacles spread throughout our government. Do you really believe Congress is going to pass a bill that outlaws their existence?
