Default Aetna is pulling out of Obamacre all States.

The structure of Obama's health care program is collapsing. As each strut fails the bridge weakens and eventually falls.

Aetna to pull out of all Affordable Care Act insurance marketplaces in 2018 | syracuse.com


The left blames the GOP for not fixing the program. But isn't that a little like taking you Yugo to a Mercedes dealership and expect warrantee service?

The right does all they can to kill the program and then are in glee that people end up uninsured. Even though they have no plan. This is why the right sucks.

False...

The Left lost their supermajority in the Senate, but still had 59 so 5 Democrats could vote "no" on ObamaCare and still have enough to pas it with the nuclear option...

The Republicans don't have that luxury...Had they had 59 Republican senators as the Left did in 2010, ObamaCare would've already been dead months ago...But instead, as little as 3 phony Republicans can muck it up...and they have...

The "Left" isn't blaming anyone. The Aetna CEO is blaming the instability of the market created by Republicans in Congress for their withdrawal from insurance exchanges.

Quote:
Congress needs to move on from repealing the Affordable Care Act, says Aetna (AET) CEO Mark Bertolini.

"The ACA cannot be repealed, period, end of sentence," Bertolini told CNBC's "Closing Bell" on Thursday.

"What we should do is fix it. So either everyone gets their heads together over in the Senate and the House and does the job that the American people needs them to do, and fix what we already have, or they should move on to something else," he said.

"It's really easy to fix this if they would just get over the politics of who is going to win the '18 election."

For Aetna to rejoin the Obamacare markets, Bertolini says, the system needs to become more stabilized.

"Any business that has the kind of changes this program has seen quarter over quarter, sometimes monthly, would not be able to sustain their business practices for any period of time," Bertolini said. "So when they get it right which, it can be fixed, it very much can be fixed and it's stable, we'll reconsider participation."
Aetna CEO: Obamacare 'cannot be repealed, period'

It can easily be fixed so just fix it.

I think the Republicans have backed themselves so far in the corner they cant fix it, remember they have voted to repeal it 60 times or something, just for their rabid base. They can't fix it without losing the base, they can't move toward UHC without losing the base, and they certainly cant further sabotage the US healthcare system without losing all but their rabid base. I truly don't believe there is anything they can do, it will be interesting to see. What ever happens though, it will be them mean old demmicrats fault.

Obviously you're correct. Obamacare can't be fixed, and the Republicans never intended to repeal.

But that doesn't let the Democrats off the hook either. They too have no plan.

In what may be the second dumbest political move of the decade, for some reason the Republicans politicians let the Democrats off the hook and assumed the responsibility on their own.

What I think what will happen is the issue on its own will cease to be an issue, and hen little by little administrative actions and EO's will push us into something worse. That's what happened with SS and the Obamaphone.

Well no, I meant the debacle commonly referred to as the Obamaphone.

One thing I'm not is a total partisan. I dislike the Republican party as much as the Democrat party. And that includes Bush, the self described compassionate conservative.
