Actually Obama didn't steal anything -- think about Congress -- and mostly this is driven by the insurance companies' decisions -- not so much about the optimal countrywide objective. The reason is that there's still a highly controlled market between a few corporate players and the insurance companies -- negotiating large deals to supply insurance inside of those companies. That destroys any positive free market effects of a real exchange. It's not the idea that's the problem -- it's the stranglehold the insurance companies have on the status quo and their current business model: they're willing to buy off whoever it takes to make sure we don't have a level playing field. ACA is just a first step in moving into a direction where we have equal choice… we don't have that as individual or small business owners right now - thanks to the insurance industry, not Obama.
An excellent starting point for a discussion on the entitlements the wealthy have -- 3x the amount of the 'welfare' the poor get - then enable them to be wealthy - WalMart being the biggest welfare queen of them all - making their owners the Welfare Family. The difference is in name -- something that's not discussed in our media or our politics. #Wealthy
