  1. hipparchia says:

    the aca should just die. it basically leaves everything up to the states, gives a bunch of money to insurance companies, AND it incorporates a bunch of the dartmouth atlas baloney into medicare.

    the federal government should be providing us with either a nationalized health insurance system (medicare for ALL, not just old people, was actually the plan originally) or a national health system (vha for all!). it should NOT be forcing us to buy an unaffordable ($8000 deductibles!), unreliable, unregulated product from an industry that is allowed to practice unlicensed medicine.

    the democrats could guarantee themselves another 2 or 3 decades of majority rule (and more chances to nominate supreme court justices) if they would just strike down the aca and replace it with offering everyone 3 choices — keep your employer’s insurance, or join medicare, or join the vha.
