As usual, you come in here a complete blowhard, with no substantive points or even wiki CnP's that support your argument.
There is a reason why we pay the highest cost (by a long shot) for the 28th? best care in the world. There is a reason why healthcare is 20% of the entire economy, and much of it is middleman bullshit industries that dont really do much. There is a reason why the shitty little country of cuba can negotiate better drug prices than bluecross/blueshield. There is a reason why we are the only country with such an antiquated and parasitic healthcare industry still in place.
You have no real points. My point I'm making is that health care is going to cost more now. Why? If you can't figure that out....You're crazy.
As the government implements more regulations and mandates (26 years old on parent's plan, must accept preexisting conditions), health care goes up. It's not like having the company accept almost everyone is going to lower costs.
