Why the MLR Rules Matter

The MLR (medical loss ratio) rules of ObamaCare are showing up more frequently in the news.

In the 9/29/2010 Forbes, Avik Roy explains "How ObamaCare May Disrupt Your Health Plan".

The 9/30/2010 Wall Street Journal shows how McDonalds insurance for employees may be the first casualty at, "McDonald's May Drop Health Plan".

Although many commenters call these "unintended consequences", there are undoubtedly many single-payer advocates who are cheering the demise of private health insurance -- so as to eventually force Americans into a monopoly government plan.
