  •  We need single-payer... (9+ / 0-)

    In the long term, trusting these insurers via the federal government is more effort than it's worth.

    Of course, whereas ACA is more of a regulatory reform of the private markets, and it's the law, until an improved health system rises to existence, we'll have to babysit these greedy insurers and we'll need an active crackdown on these kinds of industry abuses and specious marketing ploys.

      To put criminals in charge of the jail. I's just absurd. They won't behave. they won't be good citizens. They won't do anything that costs them a single dime that they aren't forced to relinquish.

      Insurance companies still want people's money while paying out as little as possible.  At the very least, we need a public option until the time comes when people get so tired of insurance company crap that they'll support single payer.
