Still waiting for you to explain why Obamacare is such a great thing btw, given all the evidence to the contrary.

I am not going to claim it "great"; rather I'll give you a few things that I like about it myself. I speak for no one but myself here btw.

1) Health plans can’t turn you down or charge you more because you’re sick or have a health condition - that's huge.
2) Puts a cap on yearly out pocket expenses for things like medication.
3) It mandates pediatric dental coverage, which sounds like a small thing but doctors have linked many health problems later in life to poor dental health from an early age.
4) It eliminates annual or lifetime dollar limits for health plans. At my company the limit used to be a million dollars and then you were dropped. In today's world that isn't much, especially if one or more of your family members gets cancer.

All well and good, however none of that addresses the increases to EVERYONE that it will cost. They should just rename it to the Ridiculously Expensive Care Act. It would in the very least be a tiny bit more honest in that regard.

And when it helps to crash the economy again because at some point you can't continue to prop it up by printing money, people will look back on it as a total failure.

There has to be better solutions out there than this garbage.
