Obama's Health Insurance Scheme is Full of Holes

Literally, as 13% of the people who signed onto it this year already dropped out because they couldn't pay the premiums. Meanwhile, the Congressional Budget Office reported that the fools who signed up for it can expect increases in their premiums of about 8% a year until 2018. The Obama regime is expecting double-digit premium increases for next year. Nearly half of the state health insurance exchanges are struggling financially. Finally in Britain, land of the death panels, "[a]n ambulance crew left the body of a dead man on the floor rather than take it to a mortuary, so they could finish their shift on time...." Obviously Britain is back to the "good old days" of the Callaghan government when bodies were left unburied because the grave diggers were on strike. As the saying goes, history repeats itself. First time as tragedy, second times as farce. We're at the farce stage of Britain now.
