They didn’t want to listen to the Actuaries, who are very smart and do this for a living. Of course, lawmakers are so much more intelligent since they make decisions out of feelings rather than facts.
Has anyone ever thought about the fact that if we get the “one payer system” how many people working in the insurance system will lose their jobs?
Dems probably figure that they'll just move over to all the new bureaucratic jobs created at HHS. That way, they grow the size of the federal government and they get a bunch of new public union members. Win/win from their perspective.
This despite the fact it doesn't take an actuary to figure out that if you increace beneficiaries, benefits, claims and overhead that premiums are going to have to rise too.
They do NOT care of all the people in the insurance business loses their jobs....they want to CONTROL EVERYONE BY having a one-payer and they can tell all they can’t eat MEAT, SALT, SWEETS....they must do EXERCISE and won’t be able to do dangerous things, like skydiving! It’s COMING!!
Nah, there will probably be at least 3 governmnet bureaucratic positions within Obamacare for every 1 private sector health insurance job.
It’s a jobs program!
