    It's time to eliminate the middle man and bring the medical care "professionals" back down to earth relative to their income ....

    AIG, the insurance conglomerate, whose staffers produce NOTHING other than paupers and millionaires, were given over a trillion $$$ because they ... well, I've yet to hear a logical, sensible, comprehensive explanation.

    All things considered, an uneducated guess would be sanctioned money laundering ....

    I am more interested in what their replacement is going to look like.

    Remember Trump's promise was to "repeal and replace".

    TonyWit, Congress is working on transition plans NOW to present to President Trump to handle at least some of the early-term fallout from drop-kicking Obamacare to the curb. And it will be pre-coordinated for Day One action. Get over it and stop your scaremongering, Wormtongue.

    The only problem is that the insurers have learned that they can price higher and demand much higher deductibles. Even if Obamacare goes away, they are unlikely to drop prices back to where they were pre-Obamacare. My pre-Obamacare plan had a $2500 deductible. My post-Obamacare plan has a $10K deductible. I'll bet that doesn't change much.

    People aren't paying, and just opting to get hit with the penalty. As long as that behavior stays the same or gets worse (and those are the options available) then the insurance companies will have to follow the law of supply and demand. It will change, but I wouldn't expect it immediately. The people making money on this are pretty fat at the moment and can wait to see if it goes the way you propose.

    The insurance scam artists will either cut their prices to what people can pay or go out of business. Either way, the common guy will win because all these "health care entities" will go back to accepting what can be paid. Think pre-insurance company scam days.

    Medicine used to be about helping people, not getting rich. Doctors were respected for their knowledge and caring, not their bank accounts and fancy houses.
