    How about people pay according to their risk for needing healthcare? You know.... like car insurance.......

    I believe this is the model the ACA wants to move away from...
    I don't often change my signature, but this was just too over the top to let anyone forget with what this country is up against...

    I'm tired of these stats. Here is the truth. Premiums are going to increase, first off because the Obama plans cover more than the high deductible plans most younger folk receive. Not a single one of these articles I have read actually compares comparable plans. They take the cheapest currently available high deductible plan and compare it to the Obama plan with higher coverage and argue that it is proof of massive premium increases. Comparing apples to oranges is dishonest at best, but most Americans have so little understanding of basic statistics they don't even see it.
    I am sure the 27 - 35 year old males will love to pay for maternity care and all the other coverages they could never possible use.

    Does anybody on this board know a young person that is willing to go into thei program and pay more instead of paying the fine at tax time?

    Anybody?

    It will most likely end up that way. Otherwise there will be a mass exodus of young people from states where the overall population is older.

    Obviously..... though I'm not sure why. Its not like we ever had that model in the first place. Actually, if anything, the model we HAVE been trying is get everyone else to pay for your healthcare. That's the model that has been tried and failed in this country.

    And by the way, it won't be that way as long as the ACA remains law.

    No, I meant countries. I would happily move my ass completely out of this country as soon as I graduate the way things are going right now.

    This whole "all or nothing" approach really does not impress people. Most Americans have enough common sense to know you can patch up the law without having to completely repeal it.
