"The law literally forces tens of millions of cash-paying Americans to purchase private insurance from these corrupt, for-profit insurance companies that have killed and neglected people and bankrupted people for decades.

And to me that's fascism at it's finest, right; The government forcing you to purchase something from a corporation. I mean that is government and business working together hand-in-hand to maximize profits. I mean, that's the definition of fascism, when government and business are in bed together. And so to call the Affordable Healthcare Act anything, it would be best to call it fascist."

When our government sacrifice the well being of its citizens for the sake of profits for itself and its 'friends' that is treason and tyranny on my book!!!

It'll take time to shake the corporate leaches from our pockets; but through our frustration, we must remain steadfast and demand Single-Payer. Cheers

80% of the total amount of revenue must be spent on payout. Med insurers are allowed 20% of the total amount of revenue for profit and overhead. Any amount of revenue not spent on care and over the 20% will be refunded to the clients.

I would prefer to pay 20% less in a Medicare for all plan.

Designed to prevent single-payer? Geez, dude, it was written by insurance companies to promote monopoly.
