    Newest bumper sticker “If You Think Health Care is Expensive Now, Wait Till It’s Free”

  • Mike Kromer

    When we renewed our health plan last year, the brokers had specifically listed additional “administrative costs” due to the new law. So they are definitely taking advantage of the idea that costs will be driven upward even if that’s not the case. Obama has already censured someone, I can’t remember the company, about blaming the new law for rising costs.

    Mike Kromer says “brokers had specifically listed additional “administrative costs” due to the new law. So they are definitely taking advantage of the idea that costs will be driven upward even if that’s not the case.”

    But it is the case. The new law does nothing to lower cost. It only drives up the costs. Supply will go down and demand will go up. It requires more admininstrative burdens and requires insurers to insure people who would otherwise be uninsurable.

    I know in the liberal utopia, everyone gets everything they need and want for free, but the real world does not work that way. Why are you surprised that the cost would go up. I am grateful that the insurance companies are breaking down the costs.
