Health Care Costs to Increase

The headline is Insurers Alter Cost Formula, and Patients Pay More.

Is anyone else *not* surprised?

So much for all of the rhetoric about making health care more affordable. The law did nothing, except give control of health care over to a bunch of money-grubbing corporations that never see patients, and yet, have all the say-so in how they are treated ... unless the patient is able to pay for the costs of extended treatment out of his or her pocket, and since the whole controversy is around those people who couldn't afford health care, the reality is that working people and taxpayers are paying MORE all around.

I won't go so far as to insist that it's all some sort of conspiracy/master plan to impoverish us all (or part of some grand scheme toward depopulation), but I will say that this outcome was totally predictable, and anyone who didn't see it coming was consciously looking the other way.
