    All the tax credits and fines to boost insurance purchases. I thought we needed to stop subsidizing private industry?

    And before you ask YES, I believe oil subsidies should stop. All of them should.

    and the idea was a republican idea to fend off universal care.

    they thougth it up and promoted it right up until Obama said well OK lets try it.

    Then you fucking dishonest hacks called it "shusulium"

    IF it were true that the obamatax is a subsidy for insurance companies we would have a system more like the Swiss. The obamatax is designed to slowly squeeze the insurance industry out of business as more and more people are shifted over to the cheaper government exchanges. The goal is, to eventually end insurance and go to single payer like the failed policies of the UK.

    I've never supported this in any fashion. As usual you prove to be a useless idiot.

    While your end result is accurate imo, the tax credits are designed to help people purchase policies. The net result will be more policies sold. Thus a subsidy.

    Other sections of the bill could bankrupt the industry but those are designed to take effect much further down the road.

    And to have physician assistants, as our medical practitioners. Many small, i.e., hospitals and clinics in small towns, will not be able to stay in business. Or so I was told recently by a practicing physician who will be taking early retirement in less than two years....:mad:

    Well the choice was either go with single payer..or the ACA.

    I would have preferred Single Payer..or Medicare for all.

    Gramps.. the government took over the health care insurance company. It's all theirs now to tax as they see fit. I'ts not private any more. The government writes the rules levies the taxes, collects the taxes and mandates what care you will receive.
