You can never eliminate old government plans without the wrath of the current users ascending on you. So they just add more and more plans. It is just how they work. I think the opposition to Obama care is missing a great marketing opportunity with the video of Barry saying he is going to take away $200 billion to care for our senior citizens to funnel into his plan. No better way to enrage some older folks than to tell them you are gutting the funding for their current health care.
