Insurance Companies would be forbidden to refuse coverage to people that are already ill, PLUS those companies have to accept people as old as 26 as children on family plans… as if this won’t cost insurance companies a gazillion dollars to do, which they will have to turn around a charge their policy holders for, or go out of business, which will make insurance less affordable and cause more people to seek help from the government (taxpayer) which will cost the government (taxpayer) more and more and more in a vicious circle till there is no private insurance left… except for the wealthy who will probably be flying to Brazil, or India, or (like Rush said) Costa Rica for healthcare anyway as that’s where all our good doctors will probably be headed.
ALSO, to help pay for what the government (taxpayer)is gonna pay for (about a TRILLION DOLLARS worth, cause remember, this isn’t gonna raise the deficit any), they are gonna charge “the Rich” (better known as the “employed”) more in taxes AND also more taxes on the Insurance Companies AND pharmaceutical companies AND the companies that make those wonderful machines that save peoples lives by jumpstarting hearts and locating cancers, and dialysiscizing there blood and junk… as if that won’t make insurance, drugs, and all that equipment that doctors and hospitals have to cost a whole bunch more. (All this time I thought that cost was the BIG issue with healthcare… you know, why people couldn’t afford it and junk.)
Tell me something Mr. Government man. How is healthcare gonna be any cheaper if it cost more?
