Stop this train wreck – I wanna get off!
The news about #Obamacare insurance just keeps getting worse – insurers leaving, huge rate increases and narrower networks coming. But here’s the real #Obamacare death spiral – tax credits go up with premiums. This is crazy. The national debt is already $19.2 trillion. Every cent put to Obamacare subsidies is borrowed. How can we keep doing this? We can keep throwing more and more money at the bottomless pit of Big Government, Big Insurance, and Big Healthcare, or change course and move in the direction of simplicity, catastrophic insurance, and patient-centered reform. #WrongDirection

Virginia a microcosm: sicker pool, rate hikes, insurer profits squeezed, insurers leaving

“Who is going to pay these ever higher full costs for the consumers who get subsidies? The health insurance fairy?”
“only one solution to the nasty mess of government-run health care and entitlements: get the government out of it.”
Healthcare costs were rising 2.6% faster than inflation, but now it’s 3.3%. Masterminds? Master con artists is more like it.
The money for Medicaid expansion is all borrowed. What do we think we’re doing?
