Under our current system of "Bushcare", private insurers skim 25%-30% off the top in excessive overhead & profit. That's the Republican "tax" on healthcare.

And not one single insurer has noticed that they can grab a huge market share by skimming off only 15% - and end up with vastly more profit because of the larger market share.

That's the really useful thing about ripoff schemes like this: to persist, they rely on the fact that people who would either enter into such a scheme or compete against it is are even bigger idiots than politicians.
