    Obamacare Insurers Are Looking for a Taxpayer Bailout

    Obamacare Insurers Are Looking for a Taxpayer Bailout | The Fiscal Times

    Insurers helped cheerlead the creation of Obamacare, with plenty of encouragement – and pressure – from Democrats and the Obama administration. As long as the Affordable Care Act included an individual mandate that forced Americans to buy its product, insurers offered political cover for the government takeover of the individual-plan marketplaces. With the prospect of tens of millions of new customers forced into the market for comprehensive health-insurance plans, whether they needed that coverage or not, underwriters saw potential for a massive windfall of profits.
    Six years later, those dreams have failed to materialize. Now some insurers want taxpayers to provide them the profits to which they feel entitled -- not through superior products and services, but through lawsuits.

    Maybe we should call it a tax.

    Might want to ask those that never had insurance before.
    I don't want to say one way or another. I went from Teamster union coverage in 2012 to the worst, employer/employee paid insurance.
    It hasn't changed either. We pay though the nose for crap coverage, just like before Obamacare.

    The policy my wife's has a high deductible unless you use their doctors and even then when you use a doctor in the network it's still a nightmare.. Maybe for someone that has a preexisting problem it's ok but for the average Joe it sucks.. Sad when you can't afford to use it.. Oh and my wife has one of the better plans offered ..
