THE solution to #Obamacare, and Healthcare costs in general

Even as we speed towards the complete destruction that is Obamacare (aka ‘the Affordable Health Care for America Act‘), we are lied to repeatedly by various folks saying that this is the best (and really, only) solution to the rapidly rising costs of healthcare.

The REAL solution to the spiraling costs of healthcare is, by contrast, pretty darn simple:

–Pay cash for the health-related services which you can afford, and only use insurance to cover the items which you cannot readily afford–
