They are engaging in systematic economic sabbotage to bankrupt private healthcare. Its simple. Its going to be effective. And its occurring right under our noses.
just some more of his Fun da mental change

Don’t tell us about your plan in writing....deceive us and rip us off as Obama wants.

For now, he'll have to settle for setting up the Death Panels.
