Most Americans want the impossible. Politicians in both parties have lied about the issues so much, that this creates confusion. They simply cannot give the American people what they want, because they want the impossible. Politicians created the situation by telling us that we can have it all when the numbers say it is impossible. If we had an honest population the people would vote out these politicians and vote in politicians that would tell us the truth. We the people as a group have become as dishonest as the politicians.
Fundamentally Leftists fund the Democrats. Leftist committed to socialism, the end game North Korea the epitome of socialist state. Too big to fail corporations fund Republicans. Crony Capitalist committed to a guaranteed market outcomes/bailouts. When the bubble fails both leftist and corporations expect government to print money to get them out of problems. The German people are still reacting to the hyperinflation a century ago. It has only ease a little after all the children that live through it, and most of their children have passed away.
You think 2008 collapse of the Democrats and Republican created housing bubble was bad. That was the roller coaster that accepted 30 inch 75 cm riders. The bubble being created now will be the mega tall and fast roller coaster. Neither side funded by people with a vested interest will stop it, not the bureaucrats, nor the business cartel. They want to inhabited the swamp as long as possible. The Civil War was the last mega roller coaster this nation experienced, cause by a similar cabal. That should give us pause to think.
One hill of the mega coaster we will experience is Obamacare or swamp care if the GOP ever passes a bill into law. We get government regulated service and coverage policies. Premiums that only the rich can afford for the government regulated health care coverage and no choices. The rest of us get government regulated health care coverage for the poor with effective lesser coverage and poorer services. Since bailouts are now not guaranteed which may change back again, the law of economics apply, as price increases more people drop out by choice or forced out by price.
So long as federal (Obamacare) or state (GOPcare) create a government regulated monopoly that can not fail, the price of health care will not decrease. We will have a two tier system of those that are wealth and can pay get concierge health care or those that can not pay get state funded health care with rationing or some sort be it waiting lines or exclusion from services since the state determined your value to society as worth the cost or not. No recourse except paying upper tier prices, impossible.
