This really isn't debatable. Obamacare will/has already caused a large increase in insurance costs. Ask any HR person and they will tell you this, regardless of how they lean. If you want to argue if the "moral" reasons for Obamacare outweigh the costs, that is a valid discussion, but acting like this will result in little to no increase in premiums is laughable.
Yup. I actually don't mind national healthcare, but I don't trust our government with it either... What's a boy to do?
BLF and CMXI could spin Obama taking a shit on the Pope's face into being a good thing...
you alright bro? You wanna hug?
Someone taking a shit on organized religion? Sounds good to me.
Then can we all agree that Obamacare is expensive and it hurts the middle class?
It has nothing to do with liberals, just you two.
Or, we should have opened up insurance over state lines.
So the government could ruin Healthcare completely? Please tell me if single payer works so well, why do Canadians come to the states for treatment?
It's not communism. it's utter stupidity. This government can't even collect taxes without it becoming a political nightmare, and you -tards want to give them total control of the health care system.
I meant, make that the only change... no Obamacare, just open up insurance between states. Competition baby.
Worst POTUS in the history of our country...just keeping the seat warm for a real leader
Three states already did that with no effect.
Each state has different rules on what insurance covers. If a person in IL bought "cheaper" insurance from North Carolina, the premiums would just be increased to meet IL requirements.
I know what it is, my point still stands and is valid.
You clearly don't, and your point isn't valid. Healthcare =/= health insurance. A single payer system doesn't give the government control of healthcare.
It absolutely does. They set the rates, they dictate the care, they decide what is necessary and what isn't.
The difference is that private insurers create competition. They also allow for us to have world-class doctors. Do you think those doctors are going to want to stay in practice when they get their rates slashed to tri-care levels? We are going to get half-ass care.
If you really believe that we are done talking about this issue, you and bama are just too -ing retarded to hold adult conversations about how a single payer system would wreck what's left of a crappy system.
I work in the individual market for about 4.5 years, no one knows for sure what premiums will be as HHS has yet to fully layout the plan guidelines. There are a few locations that projected quotes can be done depending on income and the various levels of coverage available yea they are high unless your in the really low income bracket as they get subsidized. My company is the only one out there offering full comprehensive coverage that is Obama Care exempt and have been the last few years when this all started which is how we offer up to 3 year rate locks, etc. There are options out there outside your typical cookie cutter programs. I work in a variety of states if anyone is getting crazy rate increases on there individual plan or employer plans are getting more expensive for spouse and kids or just looking for options I could help you.
