    strong, just get a load of the lobby from industries that make REAL MONEY.

    Yes, the US spends TWICE per capita for healthcare, and you will have to peel that extra $4,500/yr out of their cold dead hands.... assuming we can afford the healthcare costs they incur by the time they reach the morgue.

    Beyond expanding coverage to more people (ordinarily a good thing, but somehow they will make it into a bad thing, just watch) all Obamacare did was make sure this all ends up costing us more money and makes the healthcare industry more profitable.

    I have about 1% faith in any progress being made before 2024.
