Aetna is not the single health insurer that is going away from Obamacare.

Making people by force pay for health insurance, regardless if it's subsidized or free, seems such a manipulative and brain washing way to suppress the masses so that the elite owners of the insurers can stay rich.

Don't follow the system. There are ways to not get penalized if you don't have insurance if you research and play the system to your advantage.

It sure looks like Aetna quit Obamacare because Obama opposed their merger - Vox

Maybe this was the intent of the ACA the whole time.

You missed some of the discussions here before the "Affordable Care Act" and its promises were forced through Congress.

When was it not? It was always the right answer.

The worst part is that Obama took the damn public option out of the bill to try to get Republican votes that he ended up not receiving (and he would do this same watering down crap for years until he finally figured out that they'll never budge). I think even the Blue Dog Democrats and the handful in bed with the health insurance industry would have had their arms pulled and been forced to go along with the ACA and we'd now have a public option leading to downward spiraling costs.

Obviously, the end game is just that the industry would mostly go out of business and we'd have a Socialized health care system like everywhere else which is what works, but the ACA has been surprisingly effective at keeping costs low, both due to government regulation and the increased competition in the state exchanges.

The ACA will go down as the only real legislative accomplishment of Obama's eight years (and Hillary probably won't have a single important left-leaning bill in her terms given what we know about Republican obstructionism), but it's a damn fine one to have.

Yes, my post was so crazy. Arguing that socialized medicine which every first world country employs is the answer or the fact that Clinton will face Republican obstructionism since Republicans will almost certainly control the House for the next eight years are so wacky.

Nonsense. You just used the smallest font and everyone caught on.
