Instead, the ACA is intended to support rising costs. It is a market-racketeering scheme.
When you hear that “buying insurance reduces the cost,” it does no such thing! While it appears the program acts to make healthcare more affordable, it is actually supporting the price. It is a fraud!
Fraud is not a legitimate business model. It is criminal behavior.
The Democratic Party devised and passed the ACA; and the Republican Party supports it by attempting to enact something worse, by default. It is a binomial racketeering scheme, actually supporting it by opposing it — and no, that’s not clever, it’s corrupt… bankrupt!
Here is a link to an article that describes a dimension of the market-racketeering scheme.
(Keep in mind, when you are mandated to buy something, you increasingly can’t afford it. You are forced into debt. Since you can’t afford it, the “natural result” is a credit-default crisis. The system is inherently bankrupt by default!)
