theres a reason why many states dont have many choices for health insurance policies, and it has to do with govt interference in the marketplace.
and lets recap, you asked for facts, i provided facts, and then you turned to spin and deflection. i wonder where ive seen that before, oh yeah it was with your bedfellow wallstreetspinner when he got his behind handed to him in the maine thread.
You provided facts that the current market for health costs are increasing. Guess what I have been saying for years, young SteveShane Walker.
You however, said this to CD;
cd, your stance on insurance companies surely lends itself to be an argument AGAINST govt run/mandated insurance. in the "free market" you can stop buying a product from a supplier if it becomes too expensive. if all suppliers charge too much, a new supplier will emerge because they know they can obtain customers (similar to the downfall of woolworths). guess what obamacare does to this marketplace. glad to know you can be counted as someone against obamacare.
Its pretty funny that you, in one breath, blame ObamaCare for distorting the free market, yet admit in the other that the current 'free market' system is allowing prices to increase.
Some call that talking out of both sides of your mouth.
Me? I just call it being a right wing lackey.
