First, the new rules governing the insurance market are expected to make the market more efficient, lowering prices by 7 to 10 percent.
Government will make the insurance market more efficient? You're kidding, right? Even Obama knows that's a joke.
Second, the individual mandate, alongside the subsidies and the increased ease of purchasing insurance, is expected to bring in healthier folks, which should save another 7 to 10 percent. Add it all together and we're looking at a 10 to 12 percent increase in premiums for insurance that's about 30 percent better than what people are getting now. It's a steal.
So liberals are finally admitting that ObamaCare is theft? Finally, some progress. But stealing isn't saving. And letting Uncle Sam take money from taxpayers (and from future generations) in order to redistribute trillions of dollars in the name of "health care reform" isn't progress. The Democrats' schemes do nothing to make health care less expensive, more efficient or more effective.
