    Oh but you're are wrong moose breath people get scammed everyday from so called health insurance agents selling short term or indemnity plans and convince the people their providers will except it only to find out when they have a heart attack and end up with by pass they receive a bill a few weeks later for quarter of million dollars. So you think there should be no regulation? Good luck with that.

    Oh, but YOU'RE wrong, DebbieDumber, and you're less competent at insults than my 5th grader.

    Please don't project your own inability to wipe your ass without Nanny Government to hand you the toilet paper onto the rest of the world and imagine that you represent some sort of norm. Just because YOU would choose a nickel over a dime because "it's bigger" doesn't mean the rest of us aren't perfectly capable of choosing our own health plans without handing out credit card info to the first guy on the phone who asks.

    Let's see here with the insults debbiedumber.

    So tit for tat you know nothing about health insurance and that is it I am not going to debate or argue with an idiot. I do know though that a bigly majority know nothing about choosing a health insurance policy.

    Oh go buy a short term or hospital only policy and see how that works.

    Doesn't really matter if Medicare for All is proposed my any President regardless of party it won't happen the insurance companies are too strong in this country. Let's say Warren is elected how many dem congressmen/women after the insurance companies lobbyist gets to them how many are going to risk their re election to put her plan over the top? It just won't happen. More reasonably is let anyone over 55 buy into it and keep the insurance companies in the equation.

    LOL - of course. It's funny, you pretend to be wary of the insurance industry, yet every single one of your posts is shilling for them. Who do you think you're kidding?

    Common sense and shilling are two different things.

    The issue with our healthcare system is that it costs too much. The reason why it costs too much is because we allow everyone to use it even if they cannot pay for it. If we made it so that hospitals could turn away the uninsured and under-insured unless they can prove they have the ability to pay in full up front, then we would see prices finally become reasonable. If anything, it should be illegal for hospitals to treat someone who they know will not be able to pay. This practice enables freeloaders, which in turn causes the prices for everyone to go up.

    Solution: Get rid of regulations that force hospitals to care for those who cannot pay. Go after hospitals that continue to provide treatment to those who will never be able to pay for said treatment. People who knowingly seek medical services they cannot pay for should be charged with theft. This of course should also go hand in hand with repealing all of obamacare and its regulations that make it nearly impossible for insurance companies to operate with any reasonable profits. Additionally, we need to have massive cuts to programs like medicaid and CHiP which gives essentially free healthcare to people who contribute nothing to society. Those people, since they don't pay for it, overuse and abuse our medical system to the point that actual paying customers end up having much larger wait times than they should when seeing their doctor. Not to mention the tax burden they put on people who are already paying far too much in medical costs because the freeloaders mentioned above continue to abuse the system.

    I have. Employee health insurance is deductible from the business's taxes. So I don't know what the author is complaining about.
