"If you or one of your family members ends up with a life-threatening chronic illness, and you have to go arguing with your HMO about HMO-approved treatments, you may change your mind about how wonderful America's health care system is."
HMOs were forced on us by Ted Kennedy and a cadre of progressives. They barely existed before Congress jammed them down our throats in the 1970s. Private health insurance was affordable then. Progressives like you brought that to an end.
We think America's health care system is wonderful because recovery rates from serious diseases are far better here than elsewhere. Thanks to ObamaCare, that will not be true a decade from now.
