Legislation and Personal Responsibility

Here's a pleasant forecast:

Health insurers, who would gain tens of millions of new customers under the health plan, nonetheless would be ensnared by some potentially costly new measures, including eliminating their long-standing antitrust exemption.

They voiced particular concern about Democrats' inclusion of the government-run insurance plan. Karen Ignani, the chief of the insurers' main trade group, America's Health Insurance Plans, said
the so-called public option would "bankrupt hospitals, dismantle employer coverage, exacerbate cost-shifting from Medicare and Medicaid, and ultimately increase the federal deficit." She said the result would be that many people, including seniors, would lose coverage or face higher costs.


One wonders if the legislators who vote for ObamaCare will take personal responsibility for its outcome....or whether that responsibility will be, ah, impressed upon them?

There won't be any accountability until 2013, if there is any at all, when the current Obamacare bill is supposed to be enacted. Conveniently after the 2012 elections.
