I’ll Take “Things No-One Could Have Anticipated” For $800, Alex.

Oh yeah, this is a real surprise:

Many of the parties, from big insurance companies to lobbyists for consumers, doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies, are embracing the idea that comprehensive health care legislation should include a requirement that every American carry insurance.

Well, okay, I am a little skeptical that consumer lobbyists are embracing the mandate idea.  I just don’t see how the answer to “I can’t afford to buy health insurance” is “Okay, then we’ll force you to.”  It’s a great deal for the health insurance industry, though.  I’m sure that’s just a coincidence.

    Well, here’s how it would work – they make you sign up, but then they just somehow “forget” to pass on any savings.

    That’s why Obama never supported the mandatory requirement. He said it would be a bonanza for insurance companies and he’s right. Reform first, then get everyone signed up.

    IMHO

    I don’t disbelieve that there will be savings; just that they’ll be adequate, especially for people who are just scraping by as it is.
