    30 million Americans will be forced to buy junk insurance or pay a penalty.  There were no end to the anti-trust exemptions, no end of tort immunity, no drug reimportation, no end to double digit rate increases.

    For every step forward that was taken with that health care insurance reform bill, there was one step taken back.

    The insurance industry was being crushed by it's own weight.  Now it's going to be sustained through 30 million new customers and subsidies paid for by taxpayers.  People will still be running out of money, still be losing their homes because they pay for medical costs instead of mortgages, and still end up on Medicaid where the taxpayer gets hooked in the end anyway.
