And now we see the true beast within Obamacare…

Namely, that insurance companies have to actually spend money on health care instead of themselves.

If you thought that the Obama Administration chickened out on pushing the nation in the direction of universal health care for everyone, today is the day you begin to understand that the reality is quite the contrary.

If you believe that the end of private, for-profit health insurance is some type of nefarious step towards a socialist society, then you might want to attend church this Sunday to mourn the loss of health insurers being able to worm out of covering the bills of a cancer patient because she forgot to write down on her application that she had skin acne for three months when she was a teenager.

Indeed.

  1. I don’t know what your thesis is, but the author’s thesis seems to be that insurance will now become harder to find and afford because the arbitrary expense ratios determined by politicians are not actually sustainable.

    Thus begins, not some orderly transition to single-payer, but rather a chaotic collapse of the market intended to leave the public demanding a government solution. The ignorance here, of course, lies in the faith that this will be socialist Utopian single-payer care, which IMO relies a little heavily on an assumption that Democrats will be designing it.

    However, it is nice to see some liberal substantiation of what free-market advocates have been claiming all along: Healthcare “reforms” are consistently about sabotaging the system in order to create demand for more reforms.

    Both sides should celebrate this public acknowledgement of what the right has been saying all along.

  2. BTW, the cancer patient with the acne history also had a cardiac history that hadn’t been reported on her application. Funny how these articles all have a way of omitting that part, huh?
