The insurance world is a gamble on both sides with companies playing the odds against the user's claims for profit. Our system of business is capitalism and is the reason why this country has flourished. The government has no business being in business. Look at how badly FEMA has mismanaged the Flood Insurance Program, Social Security, and Medicare. Let us also not forget the government's biggest scam on the American people: the insidous creation of the Federal Reserve and its control over our money. The Affordable Care Act is not getting rid of insurance companies like everyone would like to think. It has to use companies that are still in the business of profit but now under government control. We know what happens when government does "business". Nothing but special deals, wasted moneys on oversite, and moneys spent to fix mistakes, all at the taxpayer's expense. The government is supposed to protect us from bad business, not control us through bad business.

"Obamacare's rotten foundation rests on persuading millions of younger Americans to sign up for government-approved health insurance, paying more to subsidize benefits for their older neighbors.

But many of the younger generation see through the smoke and mirrors of the Obamacare propaganda machine, and are deciding not to sign up."

It's nice to see the S-G has a mentoring-program, for rookie-editorialists...and, that being History-challenged is no roadblock, for those rookies.
