Obamacare has many problems, and so does health insurance.<quoted text>
We can't all be eloquent word smiths like your quote here...
"Really? Better to be p*ssed on than p*ssed off. But, how about that load of Obamacare shit sitting on your waaaaaaa-boy pointed head?"
So much wisdom. So much to be learned from your poetic posts. OMG WTF LMAO
Neither one being FREE another problem for some.
Would it not have made much better sense to have a Government agency like Medicare fund those unable to pay, and leave the other 85% of the population be?
pre-existing conditions is a toughie. I go liberal, and say government pay difference in policy premium over what same age person would on national average.
For many years of my life I had to purchase insurance as an individual. The family had 10K deductible, and 5 max on any individual. That was what I could afford, and it was $500 a month. I had kids, and I had to do without so the kids had insurance.
Obamacare forces by law the above situation. It also forces businesses to accept immediate losses by forcing bad investments.
My question to you........if you can't afford $500 a month for catastrophic health insurance, then how the heck is a $5000 deductible going to help you at the doctor? You owe 100% up to the 5K, or 10k in total family, whichever occurs 1st.
my opinion we only muddied turbulent water, and made problem worse.
PS: while insured with above policy...kids cost 10K to birth...5K mom...5k kid. I had loans just like a car, on 2 births. Again when they needed braces. I felt like insurance was a waste, because it never paid out unless it was major.
The government needed to allow across state marketing of insurance, and let the competitive marketing solicit customers. Government needed to allow groups be formed, and their group policies insurance bid upon. Self employment groups could leverage insurance carriers. This helps a great deal of people.
As I see it, the new healthcare program was in purpose to grab power by elected officials over the people, and not with intent of making healthcare more affordable or better to anyone.
