Well, lo and behold, what happened? After the first two years, the average premiums were $24. In other words, the market worked better by $11 per month – right around a 30 percent savings for the average participant. What the Democrats thought would be a great price, $35, and wanted to write into law, turned out to be an absolutely awful deal — or at least it would have been awful if it actually had been written into the law.
Obamacare would follow the same model. The bulk purchasing of government would destroy competition, not add to it. And costs would go up, not down.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
