i think what a lot of people fail to realize about the aca is that it is unlikely to lower the cost of healthcare. it was designed to lower the rate of increase... which it appears to be doing

So you assertion is that the ACA is controlling costs from 2010-2013....even though it was not implemented during that period.

Laughable

Many provisions of the ACA were implemented when the legislation was signed or in the years immediately afterwards.

As for healthcare, it's been Obama's plan all along to have a single payer system and this Obamacare crapstorm was just a vehicle to get everyone so pissed off they'd welcome single payer. 

 

The Washington Times? Seriously?

 

Might as well link to the National Enquirer.

Again Obama is an incompetent unqualified fool who is also implementing a complex hoax on all the people of the nation

Got to tear it down to make yourself look like a savior.  Rather Palpatine-ish.

for the sake of argument, how would adopting a single-payer system reduce healthcare costs? expound at length if you will

 

I think the biggest cost saving you see with single payer is a significant drop in ER visits.  When people dont have insurance, they dont go to the doctor with minor issues.  Some of those minor issues go away, some get worse.  Those that get worse eventually go to the emergency room for treatment once the problem because serious, and treating serious medical issues is significantly more expensive than preventing them.

Do nothing and less than half of all Americans would have been able to afford healthcare insurance by the end of the decade.

 

The ACA is a bastardized program passed by a political party vested in keeping millions of disenfranchised people in this country from being denied basic health care.

 

The other party has repeatedly demonstrated they don't give a damn about anyone incapable of paying for private health insurance and would rather those people die and reduce the surplus population.

 

Hopefully one day, the majority of Americans wake up and realize they can pay less money and get better healthcare outcomes by simply adopting the system successfully used by the rest of the civilized world.

 

Sadly, until that day, the ACA is as good as it gets in the USA when it comes to healthcare.

 

 

How about young, middle to high income earners, whom rarely if ever need any type of care?

 

What about middle aged, middle to high income earners whom are the larges voting body in the US?

 

I have a major issue with the federal government taking on more responsibility, when they can't even handle the ones that they have.

 

Defense, education, infrastructure....let's try to fix what we are already over our heads on before adding more responsibilities to the village idiot.
