 now I'm reading that collins-nelson establishes "high risk pools OR traditional reinsurance programs".  so maybe they're the same thing, or closely related?

anyway, collins apparently senses she has leverage ;)

they already analyzed those two bills with the mandate repeal and found they don't do shit, millions are still fucked and the individual markets probably collapse.

yes and no and sort of and not really.  repealing the mandate without eliminating guaranteed issue (politically impossible) sets up the infamous death spiral, which would destroy the private insurance industry.  I guess that would take out parts of obamacare, but it would also make inevitable single-payer, which was what the left really wanted all along.

Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.
