I am absolutely not saying there were no problems with the health insurance industry, preexisting condition exclusions was probably the biggest. My contention is that changes could have been made without putting the whole system in jeopardy, which Obamacare does. One option that made sense to me was basically having a pool of those who are uninsured due to preexisting conditions or who truly can't afford it (would have to be means tested). That pool of people would be "farmed out" to the health insurance companies in an even way so as not to overburden any one company. The cost would have been a tiny fraction of what Obamacare will cost and it is no secret that one of the goals of Obamacare is to eventually drive private insurance companies out of business so that in the end no one has any option but government health care.
that makes sense to me but I bet the insurance companies would have to be forced(by gov't)to do this.

You are correct. There are states that have a pool for people with preexisting conditions. The people are divided up with the various insurance companies so that no one company gets stuck with too much over expense. Far as I know that has worked well for years.
It would seem only fair that people that have preexisting conditions pay more as it is unfair to burden the more healthy insured in the group with higher payments to cover the cost of people with preexisting conditions. The insurance companies are gambling on the fact that more people will stay healthy than those that get sick. That is how they make up the premium rates and make money. Knowing that you are taking in a bunch of costly sick people will either raise the premium rates or the companies will go out of business.
Redistribution of wealth in the insurance business only goes so far.

You are correct as I was living and thinking in the past. It is just one country now, that was two countries, and was taken over by force by armed Communist Forces. Isn't Communism wonderful?

Absolutely true. And something else that could make a huge difference is allowing insurance companies to compete across state lines. Competition is a wonderful thing that brings the prices down. I never have understood the restriction, more bureaucracy in action???? Again, there were many options that could have improved the system without the expense and bureaucracy that Obamacare has and will create.

Go Obama! Go! I know you must be doing some good with all these republican die hards on here. It is so comforting to see these rich man azz kissers whine and complain about you, and so good to know that they have to endure another 3 years and 10 months of you. This makes my vote for you all the more exicting. Here we were 6 years ago in the middle of a monster king reign of george little man bush,s reign of terror and now it is all those who supported this monster's turn to moan and groan. Kinda hurts out there does'nt it repubs? Now the shoe is on the other foot and America is no longer kissing Israel's azz like YOU think she should. He is no longer involving America in wars we can't win to make a few very wealthy. Thank You for all you do for the poor and middle class and brush these stinking, stinging insects away from you. I hope they all develop some serious ailments worst than what they created with their Frankenstein bush monster! Keep up the pressure and DON'T let up on these republicans,they owe America alot of Back-pay.

There is no doubt that healthcare needs reform, but Obamascare is never going to work here. If it is not reppealed and something else instituted in its place, this country is in serious financial trouble. Just the clandestine way it was passed is enough to give pause to anyone except those who are uninformed. It's amazing how many extreme leftists think that just because Obama said it, it is the best thing EVER. Those people are CLEARLY low information, uninformed Obama drunks.

<quoted text>well,i think that I do know one good point.i know a guy that could not get med. insurance on his wife because of pre-existing or previous medical condictions.because of obamacare,he is now able to do this.although he and his wife are both conservatives and republicans,they both like that part of it.
Too many people WAIT UNTIL they have an existing condition before they buy insurance. Some will complain it's because of the cost, and to an extent that MIGHT be true. But my guess is that MOST have their priorities screwed up and had rathter pay a huge car note on a car they really can't afford rather than take care of their insurance needs.

Of course ObamaCare won't work. Doctors are going into early retirement and there will be another44 million people put on the ObamaCae rolls. Plus there has been some talk of trying to put illegal aliens on it also,(which is now being denied). It will cost much more than Obama said it will. It will probably be broke after two years if it can go that long. It is already broke on paper.
No it won't work and was never intended to work. It is a setup to implement a one payer system on the American healthcare system. The government will jump in and save the day by putting everyone on this system. Then the government will say who, where, and when with our healthcare.

The world is overflowing with highly educated, highly qualified, experienced, English speaking doctors just waiting for a chance to come to America and lower the cost of great healthcare.

The AMA exists to keep doctors' incomes as high as possible, and their liability for their negligence as low as possible. That's why the AMA spends millions in bribes .... er ..... contributions to keep those doctors from immigrating to America.

When we "wise up" and open the immigration doors to let those hundreds of thousands of doctors in to serve used, the costs of medical care will plummet.

Till then, the artificially created "shortage" of doctors will continue and they will remain the richest folks in town.
