The Senate bill won’t do much to rein in the insurance costs for the individual market based on data from the Congressional Budget Office and America’s Health Insurance Plans.

There are over 1300 private health insurance companies with untold billions held in required reserve against anticipated claims from the private healthcare sphere as “trapped capital”. The Fed Reserve, Treasury want that capital freed up for use for their purposes, not for the purpose of privately insuring healthcare. This is the elephant in the room, not mentioned. All private healthcare is to be sacrificed so the “trapped capital” may be freed up for purposes more agreeable to the Fed Reserve Systema and current administration. All private sources of capital are apparently being scoured up by the current administration...whole industries at a time, and private real estate as well, as we know. What happens to the middle class when all its assets have been repossessed and it has been taxed and rendered unemployed into oblivion? Well, govt. will then certainly have no need for a middle class...or is that its’ actual recognizable position now?
