My goodness, Syn, why do you keep trying to help CB pull his head out of .......the ground. He ignores the many instances that have been posted of Obama, Reid, Pelosi and other Dems stating that the end goal is single payer - they have stated it for the record. Obamacare is merely the obvious first step - if you are not so blinded by partisanship that you ignore the facts.
The administration itself estimated that approximately 93 million of those WITH insurance (both individual and employer offered) would lose that insurance - it was in the federal register in 2010. And now a Duke University study (liberal bastion that it is) predicts that up to 129 million of the 189 million with private insurance will lose their coverage - that is 68%.
"The rest, he said, will retain their old plans but have to pay higher rates for Obamacare-mandated "bells and whistles."
"It's true that some Americans will end up with cheaper coverage, but not the vast majority. Study after study shows premiums on average will be higher in the non-group, small group and even large group markets," he added."
For those with eyes to see, that is the first step to forcing the American people onto the exchanges.
I think Syn has a "save the dumbos of the word" syndrome...
