Insurance is important for business?
I'm self employed and as a result self insured. It's costly but it's also a write off.
The question is, what value or services does insurance really offer anymore? It's a middleman for the sake of the middleman. One who is actually making the access to healthcare more difficult instead of more efficient.
Then why would the feds try to force that difficulty of access and lack of efficiency upon everyone?
It is HUGELY important for business.
You mean liability insurance right? I had an accident where I destroyed a $50,000 car (welders and flamable flooring materials dont mix) and I tell you that $115/month in liability coverage more than paid for itself .
Worst part was it was a friends highly customized car
If your talking about health insurance I'd say no. However it is important for business' employees.
Have you ever been sued as a business owner? If you could pass legislation that limited the lawyers take to say 10% and place caps, you could drive down the cost of everything.....
Take a minute and find out what group spends more on campaign contributions than anyone else.....
Really? I know you're not asking for intelligent discussion Dude, but rather to start an argument. But I'll humor you anyway.....
Because there is no better option at this point. No public option, no single payer, so to ensure that all americans can get access they had to promise the insurance companies, who are unfortunately very much in control of healthcare still, that if they are to cover preexisting conditions then all people must have insurance in order to help alleviate some of the costs (ie. reduced profits) the insurance companies will have to take on.
What you really mean is that there's no better option that you will accept as better.
You're the one who has accepted the premise that a third-party payer is the best way to pay for medical expenses, not me...That's your problem.
What the hell are you blabbing about? Thanks for proving my point that you reply just to start an argument, not have a rational discussion. Maybe I should post a picture of a dog now, or whatever it is you do when you realize you have nothing left to say in a thread.
What's the rational argument, that you're entitled to have a third party pick up the costs for your medical expenses?
You complain about lack of efficiency and force being in the marketplace, yet your only "answer" is to impose more inefficiency and force into that marketplace.
Doing more of the same thing over and over and over again, while expecting a better result.....
