You are right on. People pushing the health care plan expeccting cost savings from reduction in smokers and people watching their diets are totally off base. People have been more health conscious than ever yet as you say obeisty is still running high. Many people have stopped smoking. Where is th cost savings??? HELLO.
"Where is th cost savings??? HELLO."
Ignoring the huge effect of all other aspects already discussed and deliberated to death,
(the rightful death of all these Insurance Industry lists of lies that is,)
A Single Payer Public Option (like ALL other civilized countries but us! case actually closed, right there...)
would immediately cut per capita Health Care Costs IN HALF - proven, conclusively, by the W.H.O.'s surveys and history in all 27 other civilized countries.
Every survey shows this, yet no arguments have yet taken it into account. I bet the bill's cost comes out negative.
It's extremely trivial math, with irrefutable, experiential proof of prediction.
But you have to do it right. Single Payer option. HALF the national cost.
And that goes right into your pocket.
The "Uniquely American" part is that we don't outlaw private Insurance.
You can keep your plan, at whatever price you can negotiate with them, if you prefer to pay twice as much, and/or be subject to cancellation without reason.
Hey, we'll even throw in that they NOW (with the bill) CAN'T cancel you.
But there has to be an option nonetheless, for those who want control over their Health Care's unreasonable costs and availability/reliability. And no, there literally is NO way to keep Insurance, or any other business, from operating, if they can and will offer a good, reliable and affordable product - nor should there be.

AND, THEY HAVE TO GIVE UP THEIR CURRENT MONOPOLIES AND PRICE/BENEFITS FIXING. (That's not "Unfair Competition?")
HOW IS THIS BAD?
Only because it's seen as "Obama's" plan (racism)
or "Democrat" (you lost, get over it.)
Someone always will lose, should the country be shut down as your actions suggest, because it was you this time?
Especially you who have no halfway reasonable alternative except MORE of the "Free Market" cost increases and benefit limits?
- which have caused the WHOLE problem (and a lot more) anyway?
Maybe adding more inflation of CDS's ratings, or another level of obfuscating derivatives ( a predictable market reaction to falling profits as it collapsed) would have stabilized the economy, too.
THERE's your "Free Market."
But the only thing that will keep them from just raising your premiums, (10x, 100x, 1000x if they want...) is they know you can now choose a public plan if that's how they want to be.
