I'd be interested in reading any article that addresses the points I have previously broght up, time and again.... like:
why exchanges arent going to help lower prices
why getting more people into the insurance pool is a bad idea
(I have a list of like 10 , that I haven't seen anyone post solid answers to)
You may be right, in that Obama care will suck or fail but:
1) we won't know for sure until we at least try
2) theres no better plan on the immediate table
3) the current system is broken
4) people are demanding some action
I'd rather try Obama care for 5 years and see it fail, and then start from scratch than continue down a decades long path of doing absolutely nothing but watching rates skyrocket from the sidelines.
Trying Obamacare is the equivelant of running from a bully over a cliff...well let's jump over we can't face that guy.
