@LOU Montana,Like Obama's multi million dollar vacations?
"Gives young adults coverage"?Sorry folks! But you
can't give something, without taking away from someone else.Shame on those who except this practice of theft.We live in an
entitled, and corrupt society.
Worf;.....and we are paying for the life styles of a lot of very wealthy people.
Take your pick.
@Gary O - you are misrepresenting how the ACA works. The ACA is a
series of gears designed to increase the number of people with insurance
coverage - among those gears are regulations of the insurance industry, the
employer mandate, the individual mandate, the Medicaid expansion and the
healthcare exchanges. The individual mandate requires all persons to have
insurance - and uses the other gears in the system to make that accessible and
affordable. The law allows insurers to refuse to pay for treatment in scenarios
such as you are proposing (they would say the cancer was diagnosed prior to
their policy and therefore treatment was not payable under their policy -
although other health issues would be). @worf - Research shows 30 to
40 percent of American women will have an abortion. It's a common
procedure. Birth control is used by 99% of American women and every dollar
spent on birth control saves $5 on later treatment costs. It's a good
deal. It's also a morally responsible choice. Refusing to pay for out of
wedlock births only harms the child.
No such thing as single payer. We all get robbed.Shameful that we
pay for abortions, birth control, drug related illnesses, and out of wed
childbirth.Where are our values?
No one should be gaming the system. We should have a single payer health care
system. Not insurance. And we all should pay for it. All of us, through
