The Supreme Court has upheld Obama care. He will be remembered for this. No other President in American history has told the taxpayers that they must pay a tax for health care. I just wish that government would get smaller and eliminate some of the things we already pay for instead always tap the only recourses people have left; our paychecks. In this economy, no one really has extra money lying around for a new expense.
Then there are the abusers already lined up. I should take up smoking and drinking ; just sign up for a new lung and liver; it’s free! The Republicans and the Tea Party are furious because now it is a slippery slope to taxpayers paying for dental care too. The whole system is still a mess. Why do we need 3,300 health care lobbyists in Washington? Yup, the vultures are all lined up to taste some of that money.
A civilian non old non disabled person is screwed and is being discriminated against. We should be learning from Canada which has the best system in the world. A single payer private provider which has the lowest costs with the highest outcome. There are states like Vermont and Montana who are still pushing single payer. The Affordable Health Care Act is not universal health care. It only provides for 30 Million people with an estimated 50 Million people out there uninsured. So, at the end of the day we still have a huge gap.
Remember most Americans already have health care and are pretty comfortable with what they have. The cost controls are not fully established in what they just voted on.
WE DON”T EVEN KNOW HOW MUCH MONEY IS GOING TO BE TAKEN OUT OF OUR PAYCHECKS!
When is someone going to address the problem that a box of tissues at the hospital costs $28 dollars? Everything health related really needs to be reevaluated. Where does the 80 cent box of tissues profit money even go? Well if you look at health care companies, they all are making big profits. You can’t even watch a TV show without some drug company suggesting you ask your doctor for some new drug.
What health care companies call increasing market share and increasing profits is the reason that health care costs represent 18% of our gross domestic product. The problem with this bill isn’t capitalism, but socialism. Ultimately, it is not over. The loop hole is that there is a Medicaid provision.
