Why would this make insurance (health, I presume) stocks rise?

Insurance stocks will rise because they are the short-term beneficiaries of Obamacare. Temporarily acting as the insurance “agents” of the gubmint, they will see a rise in the number of “customers”, thereby increasing their revenue in the short run. But the gains will be short-lived, as the gubmint will eventually eliminate them from the landscape... think of it as the “perversity of the street”, with money managers only thinking of the next reporting quarter rather than the long term growth and strength of the market.

Oh, sorry. I plan long term (and long gun) for the future. Which is why I don’t have a 401K but do have gold, guns and ground.
