I pay a ton for insurance and they cover almost nothing. I have it, but it really isn't good for anything. I read the fine print on my health insurance contract. They claim they can deny coverage for anything, at any time, even retro-actively. That makes this insurance a complete scam.<quoted text>
All insurance, whether it's auto, health, home, malpractice, liability and so on "transfer" wealth to someone elses' pockets. When we talk about insurance increases, yes they have been going up over the past 40 years, in every venue I listed. The issue was that Odumbo claimed that the more people forced to buy insurance would reduce the cost. Is that a reduction after the 400% increases that have taken place since the Affordable care act was signed in? I am self employed, I worked free lance for a firm in Florida for 3 years, they forced me onto their insurance program. It covered meds and doctor visits for the 1st year, after that, it covered less and less. Had obamacare been a viable law accepted by the majority, it would have reined in the abuse by insurance companies. We have yet to see that because the politicians are invested in those very companies on the NYSE. That is referred to as cutting your nose off to spite your face, which none of them including Odumbo and Pelosi are going to do.
I was in favor when I heard there would be discussions about how to repair the health care industry. When Obama had those pushing for universal single payer arrested, I knew it would turn out badly. We ended up with a program straight from the GOP owned and controlled Heritage foundation. Obama caved on every aspect of health care to the GOP. It will not get better, and I agree it is getting worse. It is not a step in the right direction, it is a leap in the wrong direction.
It is both parties that are screwing the public, to make a buck for the rich. The rich can write the laws to steal everything, and they are doing it big time. more than 100% of the growth of the economy since 1980 has gone to the wealthy, while the middle class and poor work harder, work longer, and get less. That is robbery. And it continues.
