PostSubject: Health insurance    Mon Oct 31, 2016 11:05 am

I've resisted making a Banalities topic here at BTL, but this would definitely qualify. On the radio a woman called into a discussion on health insurance with "experts" one of whom is part of the Clinton group that supports Obamacare. The woman said she is self-employed and buys the cheapest possible state insurance plan, which increases by 60% this year in cost, to now it costs $20,000 a year for her to buy health insurance (which is legally required to do now), and her deductible is a few thousand dollars above that. She said she literally cannot afford the insurance and even despite that she can't even go to the doctor because if she does it counts toward deductible and she can't pay out of pocket either for that, when her health insurance each month is half of her rent payment.

Guess what the response from the radio host was? "But you're just the kind of person we need in the insurance risk pool!"

Really makes you want to strangle someone. These clowns have no fucking clue what they are doing to people. A few at the top like Obama and Clinton know, the rest are too stupid and brainwashed by syncophantic politically correct soullessness to even know it. When faced with the reality they literally shut off mentally, you can see it in real time.

Health care and university education are two massive bubbles right now. These bubbles must be popped. Try to imagine paying $20,000 a year for your health insurance (not even health care), and on top of that you can't afford to see the doctor. Lol.

Talk about "American pride", these sort of things are precisely why people are voting Trump. They're sick of being told they need to stop complaining about being fucked in the ass.

Excellent topic. Touches on many aspects of life in America.

However. all I will say at the moment is: "Obamacare sucks big time."

Beyond the politically correct hype and feel-good, Obamacare had two purposes: to enrich insurance companies and keep the healthcare bubble alive, and to eventually destroy the health insurance market making it necessary to have a single payer government system of healthcare. The payout to the insurance giants (remember that the individual mandate was first a Republicsn idea) is a short term hook, like a shot of heroin, that is meant to weaken and ultimately destroy the insurance companies. I'm sure the CEOs of the insurance companies know this, maybe most of the shareholders do too, but they all get their payout so they could care less.

The number of blatant lies Obama told about the affordable care act is stunning. It was almost enough for me to jump on the conservative bandwagon back in 2010 or whenever that was it was being debated. If Trump wins then we can perhaps dismantle it; but the Supreme Court has already made it plain, twice, that they will go beyond legality to uphold Obamacare. It's clear something far more ideological is going on.

Yes that about sums it up.
