Hawaii ponders: It might be time to start taxing insurers for not participating in our ObamaCare exchange « Hot Air

As the LA Times piece above notes, there are only two insurers currently participating in Hawaii’s exchange — meaning that, if the proposal passes, everybody else is going to have to pay to subsidize ObamaCare’s poor technical, logistical, and financial functionality in the state. And here I was, thinking that ObamaCare was supposed to improve the market and lower everybody’s costs, or something?

Phooey.  The purpose of Obamacare is to pave the way for single-payer Euro-style socialized medicine.  It seems to be doing a pretty good job of it, too.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
