This won't increase prices at all!! Trust us, we're from the government and we're here to help.
I always love these lines "Supporters project that 1.3 million people will get insurance coverage by 2016, including about 300,000 who are now uninsured.".. About as reality based as the projections from electronic pull tabs and tobacco taxes. The healthy and or low information uninsured are going to forgo this option until they need it. Why bother when you can sign up the day of your accident/major illness.
The most important thing is not that people have health care, but instead that we follow Reagans tired old ideological tenets, because the most important thing is, as you might guess, ideological and partisan purity. Right wingers are little more than cossacks who want to force their ideals on others.
OMG - DO we really need another government run program paif for by the people and run like crap by the government.
I think the important thing to remember here is that actual reconstruction of our medical delivery system has been negated for decades thanks to this insurance and same old same old medical profiteer grab on our government. National healthcare for a basic level of service issues is the only answer to this unethical problem. It will come; we just haven't stripped enough lives of their profit yet according to the party in power.
The Democrats keep spending. Wait until you see the next projected deficit. And how is this "exchange" any different than the finding insurance on the internet?
National healthcare may or may not be the answer, but the system itself, especially hospitals and the way they charge exorbitant fees to uninsured vs. those charged to the insured need some oversight. Whether that's from an industry watchdog or government entity doesn't matter...but charging $10/Tylenol tablet is stealing. There needs to be a fox in charge of the hen-
Oh, yes... I can hardly wait... more free health care for those who think they deserve it.. I happy to help those who can't... but those who think it's my job as a tax payer to give them everything on a platter.. think again. I'm so sick of everything.. the free stuff never ends... do these people have NO shame? And working 3 jobs like the rest of us to keep our heads above water is what... something that the rest can do but not me? The free phones, the free medical, the free food , the free school lunches, the free daycare, the free energy assistance, yada, yada, yada, ... well I tell you as a tax payer I've about had it up to my eyeballs... NO MORE! You know, I wonder sonedays why I do it.. when it's could be dam* easy to sit back and let the county take care of me.. Please NO MORE!
I still want to know what the difference is between this exchange, run at a cost of $64 million a year, and the free websites that already compare insurance policies.
