No surprise here. If the government has to compete with a private industry in any way the standard response is to make the private solution unprofitable and drive it out of business. Then present more government as the solution to the problem that the government created in the first place.
According to the article, Hussein "signaled to House Democratic leaders Wednesday that they'll have to drop their opposition to taxing high-end health insurance plans to pay for health coverage for millions of uninsured Americans." Included in that are lots of people that don't want to pay for health insurance and of course illegals.
Here is a good one from the article:
House Democrats want to raise income taxes on high-income individuals instead and are reluctant to abandon that approach . . .No kidding that marxists want to raise taxes. The article got it slightly wrong though because marxists want to raise taxes on everyone except themselves. The article makes it sound like only "the rich" (whoever they are) will be taken to the cleaners on this. LOL you poor dumb schmucks will figure it out one day soon.
The truth is that eventually the only private health insurance will be limited to people who truly have a lot of money like Bill Gates. The rest of us will be stuck with low quality socialized medicine being administered by people that today would fail out of medical school. Of course elected government officials and their families will have the high quality health care that Bill Gates will have and you and I will pay for it.
I will say it again:
Health Care is NOT a Right!!!
