Q: Hey! whats this 5% payroll tax on my paycheck?
A: To cover everyone in America, everyone has to make sacrifices, you should be proud that you are helping to make sure EVERYONE in America is covered.
Q: I feel i'm paying too much money.
You said that there would be "compitition" but i find that te private insurance is more expensive and it benefits only the rich.
A: If you are on the public plan you are paying the lowest amount.
Q: So now as a working person , i'm paying for illegals and everyone else in this country, you said illegals wouldn't be covered.
A: What we said was, this plan would not change the current system, illegals have always been able to walk into a clinic and be treated.
the only way they are not paying into the system is if they are being paid under the table, which is against the law.
Q: My friend earns over $200,000 per year, he says that after he caps at about $5000 in health insurance yearly, he doesn't have to pay anymore, is that true?
Q: After a 2 month wait, i went to see a doctor about some chest pains i've been having.
He told me about how he lived in a cardboard box in Africa, then prescribed me heartburn medicine made by Dupont.
I didn't agree with that diagnosis so i requested to see another doctor.
The second doctor didn't examine me at all but pulled up the medical records off the internet, and told me the agrees with Dr. Kumupachuchu.
A: The healthcare bill spends 50 million dollars per year to computerize medical records.
Seeing a third doctor is considered fruad, ...you're done.
Q: I am now paying 8% payroll for health insurance!
A: Prices had to be raised because healthcare is more expensive than we originally projected.
Q: You said that i would be able to keep my doctor and my plan, but my employer says that private company rates have doubled so he changed us over to the public plan which i don't really care for.
A: Your employer makes the decisions and he may choose to keep the old plan at the higher rate.
You may also pay the higher rate yourself and switch to the plan you want.
Q: I was recently terminated by my employer because he says he can not afford health insurance for so many people.
I went to start my own company and i found out that i need to by a $700 per month policy for myself before i will be issued a business licence!
A: You and/or your employer will not be running a business unless the healthcare coverage is provided.
Q: Will you be taking taking health insurace taxes from my unemployment check?
A: Yes, you are still covered.
Q: The government let in another 20 million illegals, as a working person i pay for all this and my rates have gone through the roof.
you said we wouldn't have to pay for illegals.
A: These people are not "illegals", there was a recent amnesty.
we are aware the healthcare system needs to be reformed.
Q: I don't even need a doctor , what am i paying $800 per month for? I haven't gone to see a doctor in 20 years.
...and if i do need to see one, it's going to be about 4 months before i can schedule a visit.
There's been reports of people dropping dead while they are waiting.
This system is nothing but a perpetual money trap that i'm forced to be a part of.
Prices are still going up, doctors and healthcare workers complain that they aren't earning enough money.
Healthcare is now the largest expense in our national budget.
A: we are aware the healthcare system needs to be reformed.
Q: Instead of passing this big healthcare monstrosity, shouldn't we have tried to controlled the prices?
A: Yeah probably.
