Classic consulting quandrum: what problem are you trying to solve? The only goal was to revoke Obamacare, not fix a problem for the American people. Indefensible of you ask me and they will suffer the consequences in 2018.

They exist, I don't know how compelling you'd find them... The GOP doesn't really seem to understand the concept of insurance.

The issue upsetting most people with the current legislation is removing some of those protections around pre-existing conditions. It shouldn't come as a surprise those same conditions are also what's bleeding us dry.

Like? I'd argue the single greatest reason for rising healthcare costs is pure demographics, aging of US population. The best ways to combat that morally ( as in not cutting them off ) would be changing how patient care is administered on an operational level. That's very difficult to do

Subscribing

I mean most arguments revolve around some of the patient protections included in ACA are simply not sustainable. But that was by design! The Obama team got the best deal they could at the time to get it enacted. They were prevented from making adjustments to it by the republicans once they grabbed power in the house.

Doesn't bleed the rest of the world dry, @BCG1. There are systemic issues in US healthcare that ACA tries to address, that have more to do with care provision/cost than insurance per se.

@BCG1: Yes, that's something that's hitting everywhere... but the cost of care is still far higher here per capita, for shittier outcomes. The entire ecosystem is overly complex, medications cost too much because US patients and insurers subsidize pharma R&D and profits, etc... it's not something that any one act can fix. But taking a step in the wrong direction doesn't help, obviously.

@BCG sexual assault and pregnancy are bleeding us dry?! Wtf...
