I wonder what the rates are relative to states that don't have such laws.
The Government has already said that they would cover any American who needed health insurance
Why should insurance companies be able to cherry pick so they only get healthy people to insure?
If you want to sell health insurance in this country, you should be obligated to insure every American or none
Why? What other business is regulated like that? If you want to write a mortgage, you ought to be prepared to write a mortgage ot every AMerican or none. If you want to issue a credit card, you ought to issue one to every American or none.
That is socialist claptrap nonsense from a socialist claptrap.
Every American does not have a right to live in a house...they do have a right to live
People have control over their credit history. They cannot control congenital birth defects and cancer. If health insurance companies want to insure Americans let them insure everyone regardless of what hand they have been dealt regarding their health.
If they are not willing to do so, it makes a pressing reason for Government Single payer
Not every American will hve health insurance no matter what you say, leftwinger. But carry on with your yarn
Every American does not have a right to a weekly paycheck. They do not have a right to receive unlimited benefits from the government or from private companies. They do not have a right to health insurance. Or car insurance. Or life insurance.
They certainly have control over their own obesity and smoking and drinking habits. And those are the largest causes of health conditions in this country.
And companies certainly have the right to do business on whatever basis they want, subject to very limited guidelines.
We are the wealthiest nation on earth. Americans have the right to expect coverage on a par with other modern democracies
Telling an American with cancer that he is shit out of luck because his company went bankrupt, or telling someone with a child who is dying that they don't have a right to insurance coverage is not the country I grew up in
But I forgot we are dealing with the Party of Fuck-you.... The Republicans
Yet we are up to our neck in debt, and rising....go figure.
You seem to forget that there are other solutuions to the problem of insurance in America, I don't know if that is by your design or not. Same results....just less government intrusion. But of course, you would be a person that would say "NO!"
Usual liberal line: Take it all because they're wealthy. They'll never miss it."
The Democratic Party: You want to be wealthy? Fuck you.
Republican Party to every American but the wealthy? Fuck You
