Comment on Health Insurance Question by Craig Smith

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 03:51:45 +0000

Obamacare does not tell Insurance companies what kind of health insurance they can sell. I say that because Obamacare has turned health insurance into a governmental social program, not insurance. Insurance--ANY insurance, be it life, health, home, car, liability--is nothing more than a financial shock absorber. It is intended to even out large expenditures. You should always expect to play the insurance company more in premiums than you receive in benefits. Always. If you don't, the insurance company loses money, and eventually must go out of business. This is why they should not be required to cover pre-existing conditions. Simply because they KNOW they will lose money on them. This is why your policy should not cover things you do not need, because it drives up the cost. Obamacare is attempting to be what NO government program should be: a charity.

Yes Heliotrope, Our President will be there in 2020, unless the Democratic Party gets hold of one or two Houses. Because if they get one--please be waiting for a flood of subpoenas and everything grinds to a halt as the President Trump Horror Show unfolds... or, until Republicans think he will cost them more by continuing to be President than it will cost them in impeaching him. "refuses to tell the truth": would you be ever so kind as to put some meat on those soup bones, my sweetheart?

Hi V the K, "why would it be so BAD, even in that scheme… for the Government to set a Minimum Coverage Baseline that was just Catastrophic Coverage + one check up per year? People would be covered if they got cancer or had a heart attack or were attacked by a bear … big expensive stuff. And they could get an exam from a doctor once a year if they want. That wouldn’t cost much, and the minimum that anyone needs. And if you have a minor medical issue, you assume the risk of paying for it out of pocket." Because at the moment, that out of pocket stuff can be hideously expensive and prescription drugs--whoooo--eeeee! It is a problem when basic procedures end up costing a fortune. Heliotrope kindly pointed me in the direction of this fellow, Karl Denninger who has interesting ideas on how to tackle the costs of medical care--basically teat it like any other service we pay for and make costs transparent and competitive. I have issues with some of what he suggests, but it is a really interesting approach to tackling the problem of costs. Warning--he is no fan of what the Republicans and Trump have currently done for healthcare with their Senate bill ...

I owed more than 3 grands to the IRS last year, thanks to Obamacare's generous universal coverage. At something like 37% of my gross income going to federal and state taxes, I wonder how Bernie Sanders managed to pay less than 15% although he presumably makes at least 50% more than I do -- base salary-wise (which I heard is in the $175k ballpark for do-gooders like him ... oh yeah, those that my taxes pay for, precisely).

Some video/audio - Apparently, they start investigating when the same person makes a second threat: There will be a rally on June 25 against political violence I think in DC, in front of the White House?

P.S. I'm also aware that Peter Schiff and Paul Joseph Watson appear on Alex Jones. They're awesome. Again, I dislike Jones...but isn't it funny, how at least some of Jones' guests can be worthwhile?

This is both disgusting and sad. Truth be told, people have died because of Obamacare. What about the people who have lost (or had to drop) health insurance, now that Obamacare has doubled or tripled everyone's costs since 2012? It's been a disaster, and fixing it (if that's possible - if) can only help to save lives. But the Left doesn't want to admit all this. They're power-hungry and cynically manipulative and dishonest. They would rather tell people destructive lies, as a path to (re-)gaining power for themselves. And so we all suffer.

I am 56. I was completely and totally outraged when a 21 year old tennis opponent told me I have nice legs. Totally outraged, I mean, oh wait!

Humans process the world visually, first and foremost. And we are programmed to look at things we like for prolonged periods of time. If somebody is discomfited by the gaze of another person, they should politely ask that they stop staring, and then if the person persists, take appropriate action. And that's it. No accusations of rape, no riots. Tell people you find their behavior towards you and not towards other people, they can handle it on their own, creepy, and then move on with your life.

it seems like feminists can't stop attacking heterosexuality. if the "male gaze" is equivalent to rape what is the "female gaze" equivalent too? women check out men just as much as men check out women. don't lesbians check out other women? from the comments you guys make you sure check out men.

So the Persians don't like how we're doing things here in the West and want us to bow to them. Hm. Seem to remember that being the basis for a rather famous war. Molon labe!

I wonder if any of the people complaining about this healthcare plan realized how many people's healthcare was screwed up by Obamacare? I guess none of that ever happen because the democrat party- media complex never told them.

I'm a physician, V. I don't disagree with a single point in your post, but I can't shed any light on the questions you raise. Honestly, this is the one Current Events topic I haven't been following very closely. Sadly, from a triage standpoint I've felt that the US healthcare system has been mortally wounded for some time now, and I don't believe it stands much of a chance of recovery regardless of who gets elected or what resources are thrown at it at this point. Meanwhile, though I'm sure some law will pass and some regulations will change, this is one sausage I don't particularly feel like watching get made. While maybe the health care industry can't be saved, there is still a lot about our nation that can. Why I like Trump, and why I think that a lot of others supported him, is about that everything else. Watching him tear around like Godzilla through the West Wing is satisfying at a visceral level, but in the end (or at least eight years from now) I believe we'll find that our President will have left many, many things in far better shape than he found them. I can't promise that your doctor will be one of those things.

I enjoyed the fact that even after spending ALL THAT MONEY the Ossoff supporters were stuck with a cash bar at his election night party [...]
But the victory parties at the homes & offices of ATL-area media execs and paid campaign organizations (polling, mailhouses, etc) had open bars at theirs. And it will probably be a very nice Christmas season for those same companies.
