They get a benefit just by having health insurance. Co-pays are low compared to what someone would pay without insurance and the deductible only applies to prescriptions and office visits...not hospitalization.
medical insurance is a losing proposition for everybody who does not have large medical bills....ObamaKKKare or not

You really have no idea how insurance works do you? The insured only pays the co-pay...not the full amount. That is why they have insurance.
wrong...they pay the full amount until they satisfy the deductible...and the copay does not count against the deductible...

folks like you who have socialized medicine don't understand insurance....

if a genius like you doesn't understand that, imagine the shock to the Obamabot slugs...

how so?
Before Obamacare, people who were sick often found themselves without health-care because they didn't have the ability to secure coverage at an affordable price. That is...if insurers didn't reject them altogether.

Employer-based plans are "community rated" - everyone who is covered by the same plan is charged more or less the same price. The high costs of caring for obese workers, for instance, is balanced by the low costs associated with healthy co-workers.

Why do you feel that isn't fair in the exchanges?

Over $17 TRILLION in debt.

More than $320 BILLION in new debt in a single day.

Personally, I consider health insurance an investment in one's future. You may never need it but in the event you do, your investment will pay off 100 fold.

I don't think anyone in Congress or the Whitehouse has ever taken a math course. In fact I don't believe they can read and though they are good at talking I don't think they have the slightest desire to listen. I don't care about race or party when the people who wrote the Obamacare bill said it's a "train wreck" they should have gotten the message. And when our President does in multiples all of the things he chastised Bush for people should realize that if he's talking then he's lying. To think that people still sing his praises even after he just did more to hurt the American people, especially the poor people, than any other President in history.

And if you never need it?

HAHAHAHAHA....SUCKER.

I think that investing in a Roth IRA is a good investment, too, but if the Magic Negro tried forcing me to do it, I'd tell him to f*ck off and go back into Larry Sinclair.

ANYONE who supports Obamacare has obviously not read the bill. Before you talk about the bill as you understand it make sure you understand it. I don't care how many politicians you work with because they haven't read it either.
