obamacare a monopoly?

Post  fshnski on Fri Oct 04, 2013 1:14 pm

WASHINGTON, October 3, 2013 — Health insurance companies fortunate enough to be integrated into the Obamacare exchanges and rollout are benefitting at the expense of taxpayers. In practice, the Affordable Care Act has created a taxpayer-sponsored monopoly.

The Affordable Care Act forces all Americans to either buy health insurance or pay a fine. When the government legally compels citizens to buy any specific product or service, the provider of the product or service will see a drastic increase in profit.

The U.S. government is spending millions in taxpayer dollars to advertise Obamacare on television, in magazines, and more. The beneficiaries of these dollars are not the taxpayers, but the health insurance companies which participate in Obamacare exchanges.

These health insurance companies are promoted to consumers, and will be more easily accessible than those which choose to function privately and do not engage in the Obamacare exchanges.

Companies opting for the latter will not benefit from the millions in tax dollars spent to promote Obamacare, and will not receive the publicity had by companies working closely with the Obama administration. In the same way a powerful monopoly prioritizes and promotes its subsidiaries, the government is helping companies which are in its exchanges.

Importantly, you will only be eligible for the tax credit accompanying Obamacare if you enroll in health insurance through an Obamacare exchange. This means that companies which choose not to participate in the government exchanges are at a disadvantage.

This also means whenever a leader touts the availability of the Obamacare tax credit, he is advocating Americans switching to a plan found inside an Obamacare exchange, not one at a company which does not operate in the exchange.

It is no accident that an entire Washington, DC, street adjacent to the White House is rented to Lobbyists.

Wikipedia:

"K Street" is the common and often negative metonym for Washington's lobbying industry.[6][7] Many of the major Washington lobbying firms were located on the section in Northwest Washington which passes from Georgetown through a portion of downtown D.C.,
