The old loophole that the healthcare industry has enjoyed for so long will be eliminated when the new healthcare law goes into effect. The good old days they have enjoyed will disappear when they will no longer be able to use the excuse that they treated the un insured or under insured and were unable to collect the money owed to them. They have been charging those people at 2, 3, or 4 times the amount that they have been charging people with insurance with the knowledge that they most likely will be unable to collect the money and can use it to write off as a loss against their income. This will no longer be the case if everyone is insured. This is why they are fighting the new healthcare law so hard. They all know they will be required to pay their full tax bill, unless they can find another cash cow to hide their true profits. The government will see a huge increase in tax receipts from the healthcare industry. Premiums will go down, because their profits can no longer be hidden as a result of writing off the losses they currently enjoy as a result of the poor being unable to pay the double and triple costs associated with their medical procedures. There is no telling how much money they have been ripping off as a result of this loophole that is closing fast on them. This is why they are fighting the new healthcare law so hard.
