ACA/Obamacare: A Scheme Consolidating Other Schemes

“Unwise public policies have allowed this market [ACA] to become a dumping ground for people who are older and sicker than average. The states were allowed to end their high-risk pools and send their enrollees to the exchanges. The federal government did the same thing with the (Obamacare) risk pool (the Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan). Cities and counties are ending their post-retirement health care programs (which are almost always unfunded) and sending people to the exchanges, where they pay premiums that are well below the cost of their care thanks to limited age rating. That includes, for example, 8,000 former employees of the city of Detroit.” - How We Can Repeal the ACA and Still Insure the Uninsured, Independent Institute, 01/20/2017
