It seems now even the New York Times has figured it out in this article where they show how they expect Obamacare to be like Romneycare. More cost, less care! "Healthy people, in effect, began to subsidize people who needed more healthcare. The healthier customers soon discovered that the higher premiums were not worth it and dropped out of the plans. The pool of insured people dropped to the point where many of them had high healthcare needs. Without healthier people to spread the risk, the premiums skyrocketed, a phenomenon known in the trade as the "adverse selection death spiral". (New York Times 4/18/2010)

I wonder if this will hurt Romney if he runs? I don't know much about him yet.

But would THINK ..the administration would have factored the failure of that plan in BEFORE they went full steam ahead with the HC debacle of a bill.

They wear blinders while traveling through their tunnel visioned agenda!
Off track venting comments:

And now with cutting the space program ... great minds there develop new technologies. one of them being intercontinental ballistic missiles used by our military. I didn't realize those things crossed over and find that to be disturbing as well.

I thought this was interesting "Gov. Chris Christie is taking $65 million, the entire allocation, from the state's global warming fund, and $5.9 million, from the toxic waste site cleanup program, to help close the over $10 billion deficit in his $29.3 billion 2010-11 state budget, the state environmental protection commissioner"

Right now ..I would think global warming would take a back seat ..especially in light of the known skewed info perpetuated by the pseudo scientists. I say pseudo ..because imo credible scientist would skew results in their research and allow it to go out as gospel and snowball into massive budgets and reformation to "fix" the nonexistent problem.

Pollution control ..things like that ..*very important* ..but the other stuff NO!

I don't want to see people lose jobs or the environment be polluted or lose the ability for clean up ..but I also don't want to throw money away on pseudo science.
