It is amazing to me how conservatives warned about Obamacare being a lie, that it would lead to higher prices and ultimately put in place to usher in a single payer system, warned that the Dim Primary was rigged, warned that releasing the prisoners at club Gitmo would just lead to more terrorism, etc., all of these things have proven to be true. However, they never get any credit.
That's because Republicans are the ones who caused premiums to go up:
Elimination of 'public option' threw consumers to the insurance wolves
The Public Option would've competed with insurers, causing prices to go down. Republicans, being in the pocket of Big Business insurance companies, saw to it that didn't happen. Why would conservatives get any credit for predicting something they caused? Joe Lieberman had FREQUENT appearances on Fox News, and helped garner Republican support for killing the public option. He was also (surprise) paid by corporate insurers:
Since every single solitary Republican was against the Public Option, the handful of bribed Dems needed to pass the Public option being bought by insurers killed it. What caused premiums to go up? The combination of the ENTIRE Republican party and just a few bribed Dems (who had the votes needed to pass it) killed the Public Option.
I've already explained this to you MANY times. You have a convenient case of amnesia when it suits you.
