    Affordable Care Act: A Child's Garden Of Lies And Distortions


    The lies still continue, mainly that this is socialism, it doesn't matter that the plan helps more people rather than jurts people.

    Oh this is a kind of socialistic response, without doubt.

    Given that it forces people to buy a product from a for-profit insurance corporation I'd suggest that the kind of socialistic law this is leans toward the FASCIST form of socialism.

    A much better socialistic approach would have eliminated the insurance companies from the mix entirely, and simply paid the for-profit health care providers for the services they provide.

    The name Affordable Care Act is misleading.

    Forcing people to buy health insurance will do nothing to make health care more affordable. In fact if everyone has to buy insurance then insurance companies have no need to compete and because they won't have to compete prices of insurance will most likely rise.

    In Assachussetts health insurance costs have risen 30% faster than the rest of the country so what makes any of you idiots think that the same thing won't happen with the misnamed Affordable Care Act?

    Aside from if the act is right or wrong,

    The requirement that everyone needs to buy it doesn't eliminate the need for insurance companies to compete. That makes zero sense. People still have to choose which insurance company on the open market, price will be a deciding factor.

    No it won't.

    I used to live in Assachusetts when they didn't allow out of state auto insurance companies to compete in the market. You could call 10 different companies and their rates were all virtually identical.

    Let us know when countries with socialist medical systems come running to our model for efficiency.

    But why would they do that when their model is half as expensive as ours.

    Why do conservatives feel the need to protect the insurance companies and their profits over their own best interests, or more importantly, the best interests of Americans who would LIKE the option of a single payer system? Does our working together for all our best interests FRIGHTEN AND CONFUSE YOU?

    Boy, if that's the case, perhaps you could post some pictures of other countries around the world, documenting their horrible wait times and conditions?

    I'll wait while you don't.
    How many countries are RUSHING toward our system?
    NONE!

    What does that tell you? That you're right and everyone else that is paying HALF AS MUCH as you and getting BETTER CARE is wrong?

    Yeah. That makes sense.

    Then why the day that out of state companies entered the market did my premiums drop by 30%? I was still the same age and had the same driving record as I did before out of state companies were allowed to compete.
