5. yup we might get a 90% ratio, or universal health care, but I doubt it
I think the next step is to allow the private insurance industry to fail to provide affordable access to healthcare.
The uninsured will now be insured, but not able to pay co-payments to receive treatment.
They will be mad.
They will be mad at their health care providers, God Willing. Hopefully, they will give Obama a pass.
