“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
I don't understand. One cutting hours to 30 so he doesn't have to pay for them means they can buy in the subsidized healthcare marketplace in the future and can qualify for more government assistance. Charging 5% more than all other Denny's is because why now?
"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
Yea, didn't think so. Funny, how individuals even exist that think the money a person earns isn't theirs.
Anoint gonna happen.
But you will continue to see similar accounts of this happening.
The cost always gets passed on to the consumer.
Even in an employer-provided healthcare scenario, the majority of carriers had a 1yr wait for employees. Once the year was up, and they were signed up for insurance and paying for it during that time, than the medical issue was covered. That is not "denied coverage", but "delayed coverage".
Paying your own way is the best solution over all others.
An insurer shouldn't have to, as in be forced, to cover such. That is ridiculous.
You don't go and get auto insurance after the fact of an accident and expect the company to cover it, do you?
We need a system where all provide for their own needs.
It should have been a single payer universal care system IF the government was getting into the insurance business, rather than giving insurance companies a cut as pointless middlemen. Nor should any exceptions have been allowed.
Financing it should have been through an additional payroll deduction tax, matched by ALL employers, with a value added surcharge import tax (tariff) to address offshoring and to make in unviable to avoid the tax by shifting production offshore.
In addition, the government should then also have gotten directly into health care providing, including breaking the AMA's monopoly (and limiting) licensing and education in the medical field - allowing more specific licensing and certification to more exact skills - thus lesser educational time requirements. To expand the number of such professionals, the government would offer paying education in return for an economic commitment to work at living - but reduced wages - for a few years while developing the person's skills - along an appreticeship program.
The government also should set up "assembly line" type medical facilities for known typical, but highly costly, treatments - such as heart surgery - where the assembly line would maximize expertise and minimize costs.
Obviously the total monopoly exceptions to big pharma should be eliminated for them to have to follow the same anti-trust laws and cap profits for unique lifesaving drugs and equipment.
ObamaCare is a model for political corruption and bribery, with the government able to and actually doing granting exemptions to super rich comporations (1200 so far) as one example, plus of course bribery by insurance companies to get on the approval list too. I do not see ObamaCare as better than nothing, but worse than what was.
Certain provisions, such as pre-existing conditions, raising the age by which a person could still stay on family insurance etc - all could be done merely by national insurance regulation standards.
Finally, I see ObamaCare as basically transferring indigent care from property taxes for residences and business real estate and property (thus inherently a progressive tax as the wealth have more real estate and property) - to instead be paid for by working folks.
ObamaCare is NOT universal healthcare and is, in my opinion, a mass of chaos and grossly inviting - if not requiring - massive political corruption.
