Here is what the New York Times says that Old Hillary says about health care:
And Mrs. Clinton, like Bill Clinton when he was president, appears to be more willing to confront insurers and drug makers over high prices. She said she would seek “authority to block or modify unreasonable health insurance rate increases” and stop “excessive profiteering” by drug companies.
Sounds good, right? However, the logic is quite flawed. For example, how would an insurer remain competitive if it set unreasonable premiums? Remember when Obamacare was all about competition? And by the way, what is unreasonable?
You can block premium increases all you want, sooner or later they must reflect the costs of health care … and recall the law already requires that insurers must spend at least 80% of premium on claims; many pay more. In addition, the profit margins for health insurers are not atypical for any industry and are in line with your regulated electric utility.
