    is nothing but a pyramid scheme and the sooner we expose it, the better.  It needs to be eliminated entirely, since as of today it is the ONLY thing that stands between doctors and patients, in spite of what the wingnuts say about government...

    •  So what does that have to do with my comment? nt (0+ / 0-)
      •  My point, (0+ / 0-)

        is that I don't think that we will go back to a system that is more expensive and less productive/efficient if this experiment with subsidizing the insurance industry doesn't work.  And it won't, trust me.  Enough Americans will have gotten a taste of what it feels like to have good health care to permit a backwards step...

          While I admire your optimism it appears to be based on pretzel logic.
          On one hand you are sure Obamacare won't work.

          it won't, trust me
          But on the other hand you think that Americans won't want to to backwards because they:
          will have gotten a taste of what it feels like to have good health care
          How will they get a taste of whet it feels like to have good health care if Obamacare won't work?
          Sadly, it's all we've got. If it fails we're in deep shit.
          It will cast a pall on government administered health care for a long time. Even though it's largely private health care it has been cast in the public's eye as a government program.
