Finding out what’s in it: Due to the collapse of the Obamacare exchanges, by 2017 one-third of U.S will have no health insurance choices.

Seven entire states are projected to have just one carrier in 2017: Alaska, Alabama, Kansas, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Wyoming, according to research by the Avalere consultancy. And more than half of the country, 55 percent, may end up having two or fewer insurers to choose from on those government-run exchanges, Avalere said. “And there may be some sub-region counties where no plans are available,” a report by Avalere on its analysis found.

I must remind people once again that Obamacare was a law written and pushed through entirely by the Democratic Party and President Obama. The Republican Party, even its generally pro-government leadership, refused to have anything to do with it, noting repeatedly that the law, as written, made no sense and was guaranteed to cause the collapse of the health insurance industry. We are now seeing that happen.

Of course, this means we must all vote Democratic, because their desire to fix the problem by turning the health industry into a nationalized government-run operation, not dissimilar to the Motor Vehicle Department of your state, is obviously the only solution. And you are obviously a racist for disagreeing!

    My recollection is that, except for one meeting Obama arranged “for show,” the Republicans were completely shut out of writing or even amending this asinine law.

    Until we stop voting for the greater of two evils i.e….Hilary Clinton we will continue getting the same old corruption in D.C. I am voting for Trump since he is an unknown/known player. Hilary Clinton is a KNOWN player and a seriously corrupt one at that. The media is and has become as corrupt at the Clinton’s and will not report the news truthfully. Hell Obama won’t be the President if the media was not so freaking corrupt. Roman is burning people…WAKE UP!

    The only thing that will wake up the sheeple is pain , and a lot of it …It gives me no pleasure stating an obvious fact.

    You may be thinking of the meeting about Obama’s stimulus package. He met with Republicans, heard their input, then ignored them completely.

    I recall that Republicans were taken even less seriously, where Obamacare was concerned. Your statement was correct except for the “except for” part: “[T]he Republicans were completely shut out of writing or even amending this asinine law.”

  • Edward,

    I think DK Williams memory is correct. The meeting he remembers was the one in which Paul Ryan made his name for himself by challenging Obama face to face with some real facts about Obamacare and the budget, and how it could not work as written.

    I will have to believe the both of you on this one, as I can’t find anything that far back. Obamacare is so bad and so often in the news on on the web that recent news about it overwhelms my historical searches. I will also take such a meeting as the Republicans being fooled a second time about Obama’s interest in hearing their views on any matter. After all, as Obama famously said on the topic of cooperation, input, and compromise: “I won.”
