The ACA does not address the root cause issues of WHY healthcare is SO expensive, and outrageously cumbersome.
There is a reason the Insurance companies are ambivalent. They will get paid either way. This is a 'win win' situation for them. They will get more money. They will just bill the 'new' mandated health insurance system.
It is NOT about 'everyone' having health care. It is about the corporations getting paid. Who does this benefit???? Not you or I, that's for sure!
Is it possible they don't want to pee in the neighbors pool? Kathleen Sibelius has not shown any grace, she is vindictive to anybody who crosses her. Secondly, there is a business rule: when the Government makes the rules, you don't fight town hall.
