Did the Oklahoma Senator just say "We have a guy in my state named John Doe?"  now I need to look up if that's really the insurance commissioner's name.

I don't think that is the definition of monopoly.

In, a  government-granted monopoly (also called a "de jure monopoly") is a form of by which a government grants exclusive privilege to a private individual or firm to be the sole provider of a good or service; potential competitors are excluded from the market by,, or other mechanisms of government enforcement. As a form of, government-granted monopoly is contrasted with a  non-coercive monopoly or anefficiency monopoly, where there is no competition but it is not forcibly excluded.


What one firm? There are all sorts of firms that are available to buy insurance from.

Seriously, do you have any idea how this is going to work?

Oh, okay then.   But still, how is Obamacare a monopoly?  There is more than one provider of healthcare, yes?  Isn't that what the role of the insurance company?  They're not monopolized.

noheadphones: Certainly didn't make electricity cheaper for Californians did it?  And the fact Californians had no other energy option contributed to California Edison's meltdown.


Actually it did. The retail prices were capped. There were blackouts and all manner of inconvenience for sure, but the electricity actually was cheaper to the population.

This is literally a perfect counter example to your point. While the industry was properly regulated it worked well. When it got deregulated it went to shiat because speculators played games with the market. If it had stayed a public monopoly, there wouldn't have been any way for Enron to fark with it. And prices would have been maintained as lower than speculators would have wanted it.

Well this is along the lines I'm coming from--Obamacare maintains the status quo for the Healthcare Industry, so pharmies will not get cheaper by any means.  Especially if there is any semblance of competition that you claim there will be.

2013-09-24 09:00:16 PM

noheadphones: That's not true in the slightest.


Yeah. Again, from the link you provided.

"Because the state government had a cap on retail electricity charges, this market manipulation squeezed the industry's revenue margins, causing the bankruptcy of (PG&E) and near bankruptcy of in early 2001"

"Drought, delays in approval of new power plants, and  decreased supply. This caused 800% increase in wholesale prices from April 2000 to December 2000. "

Simply put, a person paying their electricity bill didn't see a significant increase because of the cap. The reason the companies went out of business was because they were legally proscribed from passing the cost or the wholesale market onto their customers.

So. It's not 'slightly' true. It's 100% true. Completely and unimpeachably true as a matter of fact.

If you want to have a chicken/egg argument about whether the regulation of the industry caused the market manipulation versus the deregulation breaking down the system, then we can have that. If you want to claim that the public monopoly didn't lower prices from what they would have been otherwise, you're sadly mistaken.

Obamacare is bad because it maintains the status quo. Except it doesn't because it may increase competition. Which will increase prices because that's what competition does. Because Obamacare created a monopoly.

Ha!  I'm claiming that prices for pharmies will skyrocket because of requirements to pay into the ACA, not as a result of competition (which drives prices down actually).  Similar to the California Energy Crisis--partly to do with overwhelming demand for limited energy, driving up prices.   Obamacare is not a monopoly either--it's a statute, which has, to a degree, consolidated healthcare coverage under the umbrella of the federal government.
