Okay stop the music. Of course people are going to be paying more. Government interference ALWAYS carries along with it an exorbitant price tag. The whole Obamacare fiasco was INTENDED to drive most existent insurance companies out of business and force people to rely more upon the government.
Liberals do not like individual choice. They are a hive-minded, echo chamber group of individuals who are so dissatisfied with their own lives, that they must have someone protecting them because they know beyond any reasonable doubt that they cannot do it all by themselves. Then there are the "leaders" who do it just for the power.
Look, there are despots in lands where sand is the single biggest resource. Yes, being in charge brings along a certain amount of unearned wealth but there'd be no African or South American dictators INTENTIONALLY keeping their citizens dirt poor if money was the only object. It's the total control they aim for. This is why American liberal politicians don't give a damn what they're doing to the economy. They'd be absolutely happy if America was just another African wasteland because its the domination they crave more than money even.
