    We both know that's not going to happen.

    In fact, I doubt they do much of anything material to change the ACA period.

    They'll slap some lipstick on it, spin it like it's a major overhaul, and then take the "credit".

    They'll have to hurry before it collapses on its own.

    It appears that a new ACA is in the works as we speak.

    Toldja so. Their main objection is that, in the popular imagination (not something Obama himself or anyone in his administration said) it became known as "Obamacare."

    As long as sick people can't be bankrupted or sent home to die, the lipstick is only important to petulant children.

    They're simply not going to turn away from the opportunity to control 1/3 of our economy.

    The ACA guarantees a tax like cash flow into the shareholder balance sheets of insurers. They've never had it this good. Would they want to go back to ask for premiums by voluntary purchase? This is better than pricing every citizen out of the market. Now the insurers write and invent the market. Yeeppeeee!

    Interesting how voting never affects money. Many politicians pride themselves in saying that finance and economy should never be their concern.

    Not sure what you mean here. But I agree with the idea that the economy should never be a significant concern of government.
