Your leaders have trained you well. You know the dogma inside out.<quoted text>
Obviously they have non qualifying plans that do not meet with minimum requirements such as providing maternity and newborn care (people of your pro life persuasion should be all in favor for that) emergency services, substance abuse treatments etc, etc, etc ...
People on the low income side will have their premiums and copays subsidized by those of us who are fortunate enough to be healthy and able to pay more.
A single payer plan should be the ultimate goal because good health care is a right that should not be limited just to the well positioned and the well to do.
People obviously had plans that they wanted or could afford until the government decided that they knew better than the consumers and arbitrarily changed insurance plan requirements irregardless of what people want. I chose my insurance plan because it is what I wanted, I could have afforded a more expensive one but was happy with what I had. That plan is now gone. Why should I be forced to purchase something I do not want?
You don't seem to understand. The IRS has deemed the subsidies that the low income people receive a taxable benefit. They will owe taxes for the benefits that they receive.
How does having a single payer health care system mean that one will receive good health care?
There are very few countries that have a strictly single payer health care system. Most European countries have a private and government subsidized system. Even in the countries with socialized medicine you have a choice. In Canada, which has no private health care component, you have choice. The Canadian government does not force anyone to buy health insurance, unlike here. If you chose not to buy health insurance in Canada you still get the same service everyone else does, you simply have to pay for it yourself.
I will not participate in Obama's health care plan. The fines are cheaper than what my premium will be. Even for the cheapest Obama plan I will pay the same or less for a doctor's office visit if I pay out of my own pocket.
