Obamacare depends on copious amounts of young people signing up for it to work. You have to have enough young healthy people in not using it to pay for the preexisting condition and older people that use the Health Care System. Younger people that can even get online are finding the premiums are higher than promised. Young people are more likely to sign up on the internet and if they can't compare prices on the net and get a good price they won't sign up.
The roll out of the messed up website was intentional, gives them another month or two to see if they will have enough young people sign on to support Obama Care. When they don't have enough to support the system come in they will do what they wanted to do in the first place. Impose a single payer system.
European Style Universal Health Care!

Really it is, or would have been a good idea 20 years ago. Thing is now all Health Care is for profit. In 1960's and 70's you just had to cover actual cost because the Hospitals were all run by non profits. Now Corporations are buying hospitals, nursing homes, rehab centers, diagnostic centers and lumping them under one corporation. Each hospital CEO wants his several million dollar payday and most time now you have shareholders to add to the overhead. You don't even want to get me started on the pharmaceutical companies.
The Universal Single Payer system would have been a good thing to do and it would have worked but the Health Insurance Company lobbyist fought it tooth and nail. Now that they are being forced not to cherry pick the healthiest patients and can no longer turn away preexisting conditions they will be into throwing everybody they can on Medicaid.
The corporations have ben trying to dump Health Care for years, "Legacy Cost" they don't want to pay for it and they don't want the government to pay for it..GM just showed them how to dump it and around here so did James River Coal.
It will end up being single payer now because the Health Insurance companies can't make vulgar profits if they can't cherry Pick and neither can Obama Care. So after it is all a complete mess and Obama Care has already passed with Supreme Court approval is go single payer to bail it out. The big fat insurance companies won't fight it so hard because their vulgar profits have been taken away and the corporations just want to get Health Care off their bottom line.
Single Payer here we come and all the Canadian like regulation and inefficiency that comes with it. Might be able to get your script cheaper though if we get to bid on them like Canada does. Just get preapproved for that gall bladder and hope it don't turn septic on ya while you wait a few weeks for surgery....lol

They did it in 1968 when Johnson wanted to de it here, again all the hospitals were non profit as was all medical care. I mean stupid you still pay your staff but you don't have to cover a CEO's 5 million a year and all the stock holder dividends. Pikeville had the Methodist Hospital on the Hill then the Miners Hospital in it's present location NON PROFIT..as opposed to the CEO now raking is millions and owning all the diagnostic centers and every damn thing else.
Health Care was NON Profit in Canada in 1968 and still are, once you turned Health Care over to Corporations you introduced the I got to make a 1000% rule. We Went Corporate before we tried to go to Universal Care dipshit, we could have done it easy in 68 as Canada did. The Canadian Health Care System would not work with what we did to our Health Care System before we tried to go to government health care. This is just another Wall Street Money grab now because they will have the American Tax payer to prop up the system and guarantee them their profits.
I know the Dark Muslim is your hero but don't think him, Harry Reed or Nancy Polosi are that charitable! Nancy was just buste out for insider stock trading and they had to come up with a new house rule for her. Best look at who was their largest campaign contributors before you start your crap.
Canada had a chance to build a Universal Health Care System since 1968 when their Health Care was as ours then NON Profit Driven!
