Justin Furman, Chairman of the White House Council of Economic Affairs was asked if there was a Plan B if not enough young, healthy people sign up for the Obamacare (ACA) exchanges. Furman said the plan is to get as many young, healthy people to sign up as possible.

In other words, there is no Plan B. If they don’t get the young and healthy, insurance companies will have nowhere to go but to the government for a bailout. The bailout turns them into an arm of government. Eventually, taxpayers will be paying for everyone on the exchanges and Medicaid. Plan B is single payer and this is how we get there.
Listen to Charles Krauthammer explain:
Charles Krauthammer suggests that this is an opportunity for the GOP to present a bill preventing a bailout of the insurance companies in exchange for raising the debt ceiling. He sees it as a winner but will the GOP do it? Marco Rubio is pushing for just such a bill in the Senate. We need the House to step up.
Contact your representatives and tell them you don’t want insurance company bailouts.
