Well, if you look at insurance companies, and you take a good, strong look at the numbers, you'll see since the formation of Obamacare, they're up 400%, 450%, 250%, 300%. They've made a fortune, the insurance companies. So when I knocked out the hundreds of millions of dollars a month being paid back to the insurance companies by politicians, I must tell you that wanted me to continue to pay this, I said, I'm not going to do it.
This is money that goes to the insurance companies, to line their pockets, to raise up their stock prices. They've had a record run. They've had an incredible run, and it's not appropriate. Obama care is a disaster. It's virtually dead. As far as I'm concerned, it really is dead, and I predicted that a long time ago.
It's a concept that doesn't work. And we're very close, we feel we have the votes. And as soon as we're finished with taxes, Shawn, we really feel we have the votes to get block grants into the states, where the states can much better manage this money, and much better take care of the people rather than the federal government.
The state block grants we'll do massive blocd grants into the various states so that the states could run the program. We think ultimately block grants going to the states is going to be the answer. That's a very good solution. We think it's going to not only save money but give people much better healthcare with a very very much smaller premium spike, and we look at what's gone on with that.
Also, much lower deductible so they can use it.
