Discussion in 'ObamaCare' started by Dont Taz Me Bro, Mar 4, 2018.
My insurance did not go up.
The average since 2013 flattened in comparison to the previous decade's increase.
I told the Obama haters that but they wouldn't listen. Because the GOP insisted that the insurance giants got a seat at the table we had to negotiate with them. They said they needed a couple years to be able to jack up their prices until the pricing controls kicked in. Obama stupidly agreed and the insurance companies jacked up the prices while they could.
What Obama haters didn't realize is that the rates would have gone up with or without the ACA. And because of the ACA prices would stop increasing eventually. Or stop increasing so much.
I say we scrap the ACA. All those stupid fucking people who get free obamacare and didn't show up for Hillary don't deserve free healthacare.
I can't remember the number but from 2000-2008 the costs of insurance went up something like 300%.
Because doctors can do thousands of different combinations of things. Imagine the size of that chart:
2 broken arms:
Broken arm, broken leg:
Broken arm, sprained ankle, twisted toe:
Broken leg, broken nose:
The list would never end.
Listen, I wouldn't defend Republicans with at ten foot pole, but this is sheer bullshit. The only people responsible for passing ACA were the reps who voted for it - and all of them were Democrats.
You would think Highmark could lower your premiums a tad, if there is another double digit rate increase next year you all should scream to HHS and respective state office of insurance regulation.
Highmark Health posts $1.1 billion in income and points to ACA business among the reasons
But in all fairness to the company they made more due to some insurance companies pulling out and taking their lion's share. I guess you didn't see the sarcasm, they ain't giving no rate decrease no matter who you scream to. LOL
When you say "millions more got covered" in an affordable way under the current system. The typical right winger says, 'why should I care? I don't know those people.' The typical right winger whose life was saved by having Obamacare says, screw that black guy, it was GAWD who saved my ass.
