Rand Paul: "Obscene" Obamacare Premiums Will Continue To Skyrocket

Senator blames “compliant big government Republicans” for health care fail

Weighing in on the GOP’s failure to repeal Obamacare, Rand Paul, who has been outspoken in his support for replacing the health care legislation, has warned that insurance premiums will continue to skyrocket.

Writing for Rare, Paul warned “What will happen now that the Obamacare repeal has failed? The same thing that was already happening: Premiums will skyrocket. Insurers will exit, leaving monopolies or vacuums, and Americans will have less choice.”

Paul blamed the GOP ‘losing its nerve’ and abandoning real repeal on “billion dollar insurance companies.”

“The insurance industry, titans of crony capitalism, whined and whined that repeal alone would cause premiums to rise. Insurers to drop out. Americans to lose coverage.” Paul urged.

“What did the insurance companies want? Well, your money of course.” Paul stated, adding that the insurance companies “lobbied hard, for a giant insurance bailout superfund. And, with compliant big government Republicans, they finally porked it up to nearly $300 billion. Obscene.”

Rand Paul is correct of course and we all recognize his points as being valid.
The corporations who "insure our health" are making obscene profits and the US Government is enabling them to rape the American public. The criminal Congress will do nothing to stop it.

When will people realize that voting is useless.
We are victims of a tyrannical facist government who has sided with the corporations against American citizens.

We vote in one or the other party as a majority, yet they do not give us what we want.
They give us more war not less.
They give us more debt nor less.
They give us no relief from this criminal ACA legislation, even after promising us they would fix it.
They have no intentions of fixing it.

We are doomed.

Health care (prescriptions too) have become a situation of "give me all your money if you want healthcare".
Everyone wants more money for healthcare. I'm not trying to say doctors and upper hospital administrators are not entitled to make a well paying living. However, when people have to go without the basics in life while those in the medical field earn 15 to 30 times or more the national wage average then perhaps there is room for cost cutting instead of always higher and higher medical premiums.
There needs to be a conversation concerning cost cutting of those giving healthcare as opposed to always raising premiums of those who struggle on a daily basis to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads.
Should a mother of two who works 50+ hours a week and struggles to feed and clothe her children have to pay another 30% increase in her medical insurance because the Dr. or hospital administrator needs another Mercedes to replace the 3 year old Mercedes?
