I know this will be an absolute shock to you but insurance companies actually base their pricing on statistical analysis of various age groups. They do this now, really. No sh*t.
And they are profitable.
The insurance companies will now have more customers & more profits.
Those without insurance now use the medical facilities & often can not pay.
These 30 million newly insured will now use these facilities and pay with their insurance.
So explain why this will destroy private insurance companies. Explain why adding thee 30 million new customers will harm doctors & hospitals?
If those 30 million people suddenly found jobs w/ medical benefits, how would that be different?
Who is paying the premiums for those 30 million, most of whom have no insurance because they can't afford it?

Misstated the above cube ball example.
Should state you can have only two characteristics
I could add that 25 cubes are solid, 25 are hollow, 25 balls are solid and 25 are hollow,

Then the follow is true
half the contents are round
half are cubical
half are black
half are white,
half are solid
half are hollow.

No, Homer is a straight male, but if he excites you maybe send him an email or contribute to his campaign. If Hillary doesn't run I'm voting for Christie, time to put a New Jerseyan in the White House.

But they can track where the phone has been, and more than likely connect it to you in that manner.

And perhaps those phones receive added scrutiny from the start.

The Food Network star campaigned for Obama back in 2008, and invited his wife Michelle to cook with her during an episode of Paula's Party. Later, she said she "just loved" being around the First Lady, and praised her platform: encouraging kids and young adults to eat healthy and get plenty of exercise.

it has to be more than 30 million-the state and local governments are laying people off and or firing them because they can't afford to pay the health care. I heard this was happening all over the place, but especially in Illinois.

Well, by the way you diss conservatives and praise liberals, it's really hard to tell what you are sometimes, Homer.
But I'll believe you.
Who did you vote for in 2012, by the way?
I do not diss conservatives, I diss rightwingers, I do not see the two as being the same and if I praise anyone it's the individual or something I agree with, I believe I have even had a kind word for John Galt from time to time.

I voted for Obama. In all honesty the biggest thing for me with Romney was his plan to increase defense spending by a couple trillion dollars, Homer was/is completely against that. We're already broke. Other that a few other things not much difference between the two candidates once you dial down all the rhetoric and wade through all the BS from both sides.

Let's just forget about the game changer...pre-existing conditions..right, dumbass dave? Oh, and the other game changer...no one like the medical device tax.

Insurance companies are not allowed to make much profit. The amount allowed to make is even less under obamacare. Most of the 30 million uninsured now don't want or need medical care. Most are young and healthy. The young and healthy will be paying low premiums but will be using health care facilities they would not have in the past because it's "free". A 20 year old who would have toughed out that skateboard injury will now happily walk into a hospital.

Doctors and hospitals will now have to bill according to codes (not actual costs), you know, those same codes one of you dumbasses (no names mentioned...nuculur option) denied they would be used for billing purposes.

They don't need to. They know where and when it was purchased. And they know where you were at that exact time. I have taped off my bathroom in red duct tape. You bastards aren't getting me!
