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

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

    Repealing Obamacare Could Be Trump's First Lesson in the Glacial Pace of Congress

    Donald Trump promised voters an immediate repeal of Obamacare, but
    Republicans in Congress likely wonít have a bill ready for him on Day
    One. Or Day Two. Or perhaps even his first two weeks.

    Republican leaders will start deploying fast-track procedures Wednesday to get the
    bill through the Senate, but that will require weeks of wrangling, if
    not longer.

    Itíll be an early lesson for Trump in the sometimes-glacial pace of Congress. And itís likely to get more
    difficult from here, as the incoming president moves on to other areas
    where Republicans arenít in such lockstep, such as infrastructure
    spending, where he might need bipartisan support.

    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 ....

    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.
