Obamacare will be a boon for the insurance industry. They will get so many young people paying for insurance than ever before. Young people who generally don't get sick. When it kicks in in January, every waiter, busboy, dishwasher, most fast food restaurant workers, anyone with over 30 employees will have to pay for insurance. They all think it's free, but it's not. The government requires an employer to pay most, but not all the premium.
The government monitors profits and you can raise or lower rates with a built in profit. Imagine if the government mandated that every household had to have an AC system. That if you couldn't pay for it the government would pay for it and all AC companies would be guaranteed to make a profit? That they would have a death panel that would force old units to be replaced. I don't think that would hurt the industry.
As GA said, be careful what you ask for, it might just ruin your day.
So stressed..... think Im going to lie down for a while.... It rained and I cannot mow or weedeat so I am going to take this opportunity to take a short nap.
I wonder how many people stay in jobs they hate because of the health insurance benefits. Just think, if you weren't dependent on your job for your health care, you could tell the boss to shove it and go work for someone else. Employer provided health care insurance gives employers a lot of control over there workers. It's the fear of being uninsured that makes a lot of people put up with bad work environments. If health insurance were not an issue, employers would have to treat their employees better and small companies could compete for the good employees.
Looks like the GOP really is in bed as badly as the DEMS...
IMO the sooner us conservatives realize our own party has sold out... the sooner we will rebuild our party (or start a new one).
IMO then and only then can we get what we want... LESS GOVT.
you are 100% correct.
the immigration act was America's final nail.
it was pushed by Ted Kennedy who was trying to save his own skin after all three of his brothers died as patriots, and after he was in a plane that suspiciously went down.
he asked to be re-educated when he was in the hospital bed
it's amazing how many people think ObamaCare is not Socialist.
it's officially considered Socialist/Capitalist.
anything in America you are forced to pay for, including most taxes, has a Socialist history.
you'r health care charge will eventually be right next to your SS ,medicare, and unemployment taxes.
the difference is, the other Socialist programs were designed to funnel money to the government, where ObamaCare was designed to funnel money to businesses AND the government which is highly illegal.
they're not going to over turn it , they went through too much trouble to bribe people to pass it, and they won't lose the massive revenue it will create
It's not socialist. It's fascist. A merging of corporate and government power. Socialist would be if it was single payer universal health care. It's still an abomination. Actual liberals and progressives hate the thing just as much as conservatives and libertarians do. The only people that support it are yellow dog democrats, who think its going to be free healthcare.
I do agree we are stuck with it. The health insurance industry spent to much money to get it passed.
