It's the assumptions, stupid

The woes of Obamacare continue, with no end in sight.
The president and allies assumed people would welcome the new law with open arms.
They assumed people wouldn't mind signing up for new things.
They assumed new benefits would entice paying more.
They assumed wrong.
The people politicians regularly encounter want these things.
The rest of the population wants protection, but likes life the way it is.
"I'm doing fine, so why bother me?"
They've been bothered.
If the assumptions the government provided insurance companies are wrong, who's going to make up the cash difference?
Either individuals through higher premiums, or taxpayers through a bailout.
Because unlike government, health insurance companies can't print money.
This government probably assumed that they could.
