All part of the plan..Make ObamaCare so bad that outright Socialist healthcare would start to look better...:mad

States scrambling to avert Obamacare sticker shock after Dems balk at stabilization effort

Quote:

Congress failed to tamp down Obamacare premiums in last week’s spending bill, shifting the burden onto states, where governors and legislatures are facing growing pressure — but few good options — to bring down rates before companies finalize their 2019 prices.

Politicians at all levels of government are fearing another round of sticker shock for consumers this fall as insurers jack up prices, blaming both the original 2010 health law and the moves Congress and the Trump administration have made to undercut it in the years since.

Capitol Hill had a chance to lower rates with a stabilization bill Republicans had hoped to attach to last week’s spending package. But Democrats balked, and Congress likely missed its last chance to act before the new rates are set.

Yes, UHC--which is, basically, socialized healthcare--would be an improvement over ObamaCare, I believe.

But that is surely damning the former with faint praise...
