Paternalistic bastard.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Obama has not the slightest idea how insurance works, nor does he care.

If a company cannot underwrite - if it cannot rate risks comparatively and price them accordingly - but is instead forced by a government to issue guaranteed contracts with inflexible, one-size-fits-all provisions to a pool dominated by high-risk applicants, they will soon go out of business.

And that is the plan.

We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH

Keep in mind that most of the folks who are going to who got these cancellation letters, they'll be able to get better care at the same cost or cheaper in these new marketplaces because they'll have more choice, they'll have more competition. They're part of a bigger pool. Insurance companies are going to be hungry for their business.
The healthcare exchange in my state consists of one - count 'em - one insurer. That's not competition, that's take it or lose it.

Agreed Andy.  Obama and the other architects of this mess designed a system to kill off the insurance companies.  Create a vacuum.  Fill it with something else.  They made miscalculations along the way... but to that end, they are well on their way.

If obama means "better off" by being bankrupt followed by a painful and early death...then he is spot on with that comment.    :chairbang:
