What good is your health insurance if you have to make me buy it? – Valerie Zarcone dot Com

What good is your health insurance if you have to make me buy it?

I don’t know even one person who wants to be without health insurance. The doctors and the hospitals do use collection agencies to collect their money. So there is no need whatsoever to force anyone to buy it.

The only reason I can see as to why anyone would want me to buy health insurance is because they want to give free health care to illegal aliens. I see no other reason. Oh and those other people on welfare.

People on welfare already qualify for free health care. Illegals can already go to hospitals and skip on the bills, and do so daily. It’s about control. The more control government has over the populace, the more those in government know they can get by with. As long as people *think* they’re getting some benefit from government (whether they are or not), they know that people will continue to sit back and permit our Constitution to be trampled. It’s all a giant shell game to keep our eyes off what’s going on quietly behind the scenes.

Edit – I call BS on anyone who says requiring everyone to have insurance is going to get everyone covered and save the health care system. These people obviously don’t understand how the health care system and insurance work. Traditional full coverage insurance is a huge part of the problem in health care today. When people can go to the doctor for every minor complaint they come across and only pay a minimal copay, they tend to overuse the system… thus increasing demand and cost. People are totally out of touch with the cost of health care when they aren’t paying out of pocket a the time of service. Higher deductible major medical plans that cover preventative medicine at 100% are the way to go to reduce the cost of insurance. They’re ultimately less costly for the consumer, and the consumer has a vested interest in understanding what they’re being asked to pay for before consenting to unnecessary procedures or tests. They also think twice before going to the doctor over trivial ailments. I’ve been on this type plan for 3 years and have literally saved thousands of dollars. There’s also the fact that laws governing health insurance live at state level. This prohibits insurers from offering individual plans across state lines, thus leading to smaller pools of people in plans. This, too, drives up cost. Insuring everyone won’t fix a thing. It will just drive the cost higher, leading to people who can’t afford it even when it’s mandatory. The root problem in health care (cost) has not been addressed with this legislation. Don’t believe me? Give it 10 years. Fewer people will be able to afford health care than can now.

    I am all against free healthcare, but if it must be done, all or nothing. Not just illegals and poor people. Everyone deserves the same rights.

    But what about those that can’t afford it and are sick?

    There are lots of people without health insurance, and when they get sick they go to the Emergency Room. You have to pay for that, with higher health costs. If they were required to get insurance, you would no longer have to pay for it.

    Free health care isn’t free. Some people think it is. I would rather pay for my own health care. I like that they stopped all this pre-existing condition BS, but we don’t need a totally socialized system. With drug prices the way they are, we can’t afford it.

    ObamaCare will save 45,000 American lives a year. That’s FIFTEEN 9-11s a year – except this time it includes children and babies.

    Study: 45000 Uninsured Die a Year – CBS Evening News – CBS News
    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/09/17/eveningnews/main5318652.shtml

    A million more children have health insurance today because of Obamacare. Don’t you care about them?

    Republicans have been in power for most of the last 30 years and they didn’t do a thing about our health care crisis. Not a thing. 360,000 Americans – men, women, children and infants – died needlessly just under Bush alone. Countless Americans lost their homes and savings because of medical expenses.

    If you had a child with cancer you would LOVE this new law. I know it’s difficult for some of you to try to think of others. Oh, and nobody is going to be forced to buy anything. Further, states can rewrite it if they wish.

    People who want seniors to save money on prescriptions;
    people who don’t want to be denied for pre-existing conditions;
    people who don’t want to be cut off benefits with annual and lifetime caps;
    people who want to see all Americans able to afford health insurance;
    people who want their kids on their policies up to age 26;
    and people who want to see the overhead of insurance companies limited
    should all support it.

    I assure you the vast majority of unpaid medical bills never get paid despite
    the collection agencies. The cost of this is passed on to those who pay, adding
    to the vicious cycle of ever increasing medical costs. Unpaid medical bills are
    given a low status where your credit rating is concerned, adding incentive for
    people to not pay them. Mandating insurance is a big step out of this black hole.

    Reality is not a liberal stronghold. Reality dictates that we live in a world of scarce resources. I have unhappy news for the liberal bunch that grew up on Sesame Street and never actually moved on: There is NOT enough money to provide health care for everybody. And even if there were enough money, you could never collect it. People with the money would leave or hide it.

    So what do we do with liberals who figuratively have spent their entire lives designing castles to be placed in swamps? The enormous amount of time and effort spent designing a health care bill that can never be funded was a huge waste. Liberals keep your attention focused on the bill/law and ignore any argument as to its practicality. You can’t reason with them-you HAVE to vote the crap out.

    I am all for liberals helping people pay for health care. Despite unemployment figures, caring liberals can still show how much they * really * care about the uninsured by getting a side job at McDonald’s or a similar place and work part time to make money to insure an uninsured person somewhere. There are perhaps 150 million liberals in this country so only some of them would have to do this in order to get everyone insured. This answer is extremely practical and it has a 100% chance of succeeding anywhere liberals actually care about the uninsured. It is not complex, it would help the economy by making America more productive and would be constitutional.

    Obviously that isn’t going to happen. Liberals only care about others with others’ money. They don’t care about reality and can’t/don’t want to do math (economics). They think it’s their place in the world to dream up stuff and the OTHER person’s job to do the hard labor. Well they are wrong.

    Plenty of employed people dont have health benefits or cant afford their share of the cost.

    In order to subsidize health insurance for everyone, the pool of people must include both sick and healthy people so the government can afford to subsidize everyone. Thats why it is a mandate and not optional. It is a good deal, and you get a tax credit for buying insurance which you dont get now.

    The purchase of insurance by everyone is the way the planners came up with being able to cover everyone.
