  •  Why did we waste time on the mandate? (6+ / 0-)

    Single-Payer should have been the policy in the first place.  The mandate may have strengthened the case for the Private Health Care system and left a sour taste about health care "reform" in the average American's mouth.

    What a waste of time!!!

    •  The insurance companies and Wall Street (4+ / 0-)

      ...insisted on the mandate.

      Many Americans don't realize that the vast premium pool goes directly to Wall Street and is used to scalp or manipulate the markets. Insurers, like Wellpoint make most of their money on Wall Street -- not on the health care business.

      They only do health care insurance to gather the premium pool for a market gambling fund.


      Experience keeps a dear school, but a fool will learn in no other.
