Default Do you have health insurance?

Proposal would require all to have health coverage

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090514/...ealth_overhaul

Quote:
House Democrats are crafting a plan that would require all Americans to carry health insurance and would help families making less than $88,000 pay the premiums. Employers, too, would have to help foot the bill.

If this isn't socialism, I don't know what is.

Quote:
Insurers are strongly opposed to a government-sponsored plan, saying it would drive them out of business.

Yep... and that prolly what's gonna happen.



Look, I pay a $hit load for health insurance because I have two kids... And I'd love to have cheaper coverage...

But this just smells like some Bull $hit.

Yea... and if you own your own business... you are gonna help pay for their health coverage.

Sucks doesn't it?

Oh... and no offense taken... I am "kind-of" crazy.

Default Re: Do you have health insurance?

lol why would you think thats so bad if you aren't getting covered from working for some big company like the other Republican dickheads against national healthcare? If you are paying for a family plan with 2 kids, its very likely whatever the Democrats push will benefit you more than now.

Tons of people don't have health insurance in our country. Its a huge profit for all types of health insurers, meaning they are making much more from inflated pricing and plans for selfish greedy motivations more than whats best for the American people as a whole. Its kind of like Wallstreet where they are looking out for their wallets, more than whats best for the country, but being able to see a doctor and be covered when you're ill is far more important.

We aren't and never will be a socialist society. Look up the definition of socialism. We are at least 95% capitalist, leaning a little further to national healthcare doesn't make us anywhere near a socialist country, and we never will be. Its like saying Oh no you are going to die, every time you cut your finger

Btw if you think $200/month individual plans are acceptable and practical to everyone in this country, then you're dumb. Thats why people fore go health insurance...

you are an absolute raving lunatic and you make no sense whatsoever. NOBODY takes you serious. it amazes me you even continue to attempt being politically involved. nothing you say has any meaning and everyone just looks at you like the town kook. INCLUDING democrat/liberal posters.

why waste your time on politics when you CLEARLY dont have the acumen? you seriously need to focus your werewithal on a new hobby. I suggest Magic: The Gathering.

But it puts Governmnet in control of the entire Health Care System. If you trust the government... Then it's a great idea. I don't like the fact that you will now be dealing with the Government instead of a insurance company... But maybe that's the way that it's suppose to be.

And no... I pay like $600 a month for the entire family for coverage and it sucks,

The real problem is Immigration... because here in Texas immigrants are flooding the hospitals and pay absolutley nothing.

They might have to stay in the waiting room for 24 hours... but they don't care as long as it's free.

I can see this happening one drunken night. Dooms would be sober though I think.

In fact, I can't say I'm entirely certain someone hasn't already tricked a drunk Prime into having this happen to him.

Many of them still manage to budget for cigarrettes and lottery tickets. But who are we to deny them the handouts of some evil white guy who happened to work and succeed. These people DESERVE cigarrettes and lottery tickets, and if they cant afford healthcare with whats left over, then DAMNIT GIVE THEM SOME RICH GUY'S MONEY!
