Surprise! Obama care is free-market capitalism.Submitted by lancealotlink on Thu, 09/26/2013 - 17:13
How Obama set up Ted Cruz and the T-ball party to fail.
Okay now that Obama care has been rolled out I've read the program and all it is, is no more than a simple insurance exchange program. Now I know all you Mark Levine groupies on this site will scream that its evil socialism, but in all actuality it is more capitalistic than the system we have right now.
With ACA you will be able to go to a database on a website choose your own health care plan at a national level , before you could only choose your health plan at a state-level whereas insurance companies held monopolies on territories. I have to admit this is a brilliant idea that allows insurance companies to compete at a national level which in turn will do exactly what it says it will do lower insurance premiums with a free-market capitalism approach. The average family would pay an average cost of $320 a month with a tax subsidy according to their income bracket. A single person could pay as little as $74 a month for affordable health insurance. Along with that it would allow insurance companies to compete with each other at a national level in return lowering everyone's insurance premiums. Oh yeah, and for all you anarchist who do not wish to participate you will receive a small fine that will be lower than your monthly premium for the first two years.
Now I have wondered for months why Obama has allowed all the Faux news zombies to let their imaginations run wild all these months, and now I know why , he has set a trap for an idiot like Ted Cruz to stand up on his little soapbox and rail away against socialism all the while setting up the tea party to fail. After the American people realize what Obama care actually is they are going to love it. Once again showing the Republicans play checkers while the Democrats play chess.
