12. Once the insurance companies get the mandate in place
anyone using a government program or receiving subsidized insurance will be scapegoated as the major drains on the system. The incremental changes will be of the same cost cutting variety that traditionally hits the least among us the hardest. The republicans live on that type of cruelty and the democrats will oblige just like welfare reform.

The insurance companies control the reform today and will for the short miserable life of the puny public option which requires 130,000,000 to succeed competitively and bring down costs but will only be allowed a measly 10,000,000 members by 2019.

I find the willingness of people to legally shackle themselves permanently to a completely untrustworthy for profit private business to be astounding in it's ignorance and naivet.
