The Affordable Care Act(Obamacare) was designed to raise premiums. The left knows this.
The plan is to destroy private healthcare by any means necessary in order to implement nationalized healthcare.
The left are cunning as well as ruthless.
Obama pretty much stated that years ago. He mentioned in some group (may have been SEIU) that the complete govt takeover of healthcare would not be instant, but a gradual process. The stuff they put in place will just make it sooner rather than later.
