They are already making obscene profits afforded them by the new ObamaCare. If you believe those prices will be reduced because the government is involved, you have never studied governance and its inherent lack of skills required for anything beyond the superficial. You are biased and naive—and those are your most endearing traits.<quoted text>
Look, "Norton"! So you think that I do not have common sense. Fair enough!
I don't think that you have ANY sense!
And, yes -- I am sure that the fatcat healthcare industry will continue making profits, but hopefully not as much as the obscene profits they are making now. The "Affordable Care Act" forces the healthcare industry to provide a certain percentage of its receipts for healthcare benefits to its subscribers -- or REFUND a percentage!
From the IRS -- Medical Loss Ratio (MLR):
Beginning in 2011, insurance companies are required to spend a specified percentage of premium dollars on medical care and quality improvement activities, meeting a medical loss ratio (MLR) standard. Insurance companies that are not meeting the MLR standard will be required to provide rebates to their consumers beginning in 2012.
It reminds me of the plot by the Obamites to raise gasoline prices to equal those of Europe, so they could tax us into oblivion. The prices went up and never came down. The government is like a heroin addict—you give them more, and they will require more.
Anything that the government becomes involved in, they screw up. Take the Post Office as the best example. They are obsolete and will be out of business soon. Private enterprise will take over and do it better—unless the socialists like you take over and destroy private enterprise altogether.
