The only real difference, is intentions. The results are the same.
You're viewing this much too short term. You are looking at the effects to date. YES the insurance companies love ObamaCare, but it is short sighted love. Healthcare under ObamaCare is making things much much worse, and much more expensive. WE are still at the front end of this thing, we haven't even begun to seen the long term problems that will come from it.
"Let's parse it for what you really mean--only those that had health insurance, not the millions that had jobs but no health insurance."
Lets give everyone a house, car, free food water
You missed the SCOTUS ruling. The only way the whole of ObamaCare is legal, is if it is a tax. Therefore it is a tax. I don't care what the IRS says, I care what the SCOTUS says. And so should you.
"Plans that charge more than they pay out are not legitimate."
Obama plans does the exact opposite, pays out more than it charges! YAY Socialism!
Any significant level of incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.
You realize that there is water in the streams because we dammed them, right?
"legitimate insurance plan"
It was legitimate before ObamaCare. Simply writing a law didn't change that.
AND if you're asking me, ObamaCare isn't a "legitimate insurance plan" it is a tax. If it isn't a tax, then it is unconstitutional.
I am not unarmed. I'm using the safe arms of Nerf Guns, since that seems to work with the people outraged by Cecil but don't care about things that really matter, like Hillary's Email Server.
Yeah, that's going to work out well for the Government. The government makes a shit ton off Oil and Gas, more than Oil and Gas does. And they are replacing that revenue stream with subsidies for the very thing that will eliminate revenue. Brilliant!
I remember when they raised taxes on Cigarettes to pay for people who had lung cancer. To the point where cigarette use dropped very sharply over a few years. They funded programs from the taxes, tax revenue dropped, and now they have to back fill those programs (because we never cut them
But what difference does it make, at this point? Cecil the lion is dead.
The ACA was well intentioned
No it wasn't. IT was designed from the beginning to snooker the American people into a broken "insurance" scam designed to break the medical/insurance industry. It was designed to fail, so that Americans would jump into single payer, crap healthcare.
You can keep your plan (Lie)
It isn't a tax (Lie)
You can keep your doctor(Lie)
It will cost less(Lie)
You'll have better coverage (Lie)
And I am sure supporters will provide anecdotal evidence that some of these claims were true for them. Plenty of people lost their doctors, plans and spend more for less insurance. OH, and Obama lied about not increasing taxes on those making $250k or less. BUT who cares, Cecil the lion is dead!
Hydro is not anywhere near peak. Unless you mean "we can't build any more dams because environmental concerns".
California is waking up to the realization that All those regulations mean squat when there is a real drought, and the only thing saving the mini fish are the dams we built that they said was killing them off. Maybe now, we can build some more dams
To me, Facebook is about people I care about, GooglePlus is about things I care about. Facebook sucks for discussing my eclectic amusements. My family really doesn't care about my Ingress activities, and my Ingress friends don't want to see kitty pictures.
Or to put it another way, GooglePlus filters out all the things I don't care about, nicely.
I am not a theologian, but because you can't fathom it, doesn't mean it doesn't have an alternative answer.
But lets take a quick look at possibilities. Man creates fancy cancer causing agent, lets call it
Or put it in another way, "God allows evil, because without a choice, there is no chance to choose"
ON the other hand, you being human and being your own god have to answer for the evil you allow to exist. Oh wait, being an atheist, you cannot even say evil exists. Everything is situational and you have plenty of excuses as to why you allow "evil" in your life. And don't lie to me saying you don't allow evil, even by your own standards, you allow it. Which makes you pretty hypocritical.
IF it was cheaper (or even close) to manufacture than NAND, then they ought to forgo profits and gain Marketshare and put the NAND business out. They would make more money in the long run. This is unique process, nobody else has, Marketshare means long term (this is electronics, which means 7 years max) profitability.
I can see charging a premium for early (beta) testers, and as they iron out the bugs (there will be a bunch) but as they ramp up production, the cost WILL come down, quickly.
If I were in the market for faster more durable short range data storage, I would be a heavy better and get in on early adoption, just so I can see what it can do and how useful it could be.
