But Joe only worked at Acme Plbg. for 10 years before they went under. Then he worked for Crown Plumbers, for 5 before the franchise went kaput. He's been doing well on his own for 10 years, but after showing up at work everyday at 6:00 am, for 25 years, he ain't got ****. In fact, he's probably worried if they will even insure him at all since his blood pressure went up.
    i agree; Americans are switching jobs for a variety of reasons all the time in today's fluid economy.

    which is why health insurance should be personally owned. when you look at it, there is no better reason for us to have our employer purchase health insurance for us than there would be for us to have our job give us auto insurance.

    I wonder what the premiums on a similar Tricare plan would cost the civillian public?
    lots; Tricare is heavily subsidized for the military that buy it. Taxpayers would either have to pay heavy premiums, or heavy taxes.

    Sounds smart to me that the govt., if they REALLY wanted to change health care, would set up it's own insurance styled entity and offer quality health care, and do it not for profit but also not for loss.
    well, 1. government programs run at a loss all the time and 2. government programs to include Tricare aren't exactly known for providing "quality" service. Tricare has been a pain in the neck; it took me two years to convince those people that the woman on my marriage certificate who was also listed as the mother of my son was - in fact - my 'wife'. Since her dad was retired military, she had been on his account as a secondary... and everyone knows that it is impossible to be both a daughter and a wife.... and she's already in the system as a daughter..... suffice to say i'm still trying to clean up that mess; as i type on my desk sits a bill for hundreds of dollars that showed up for medical care provided years ago that has been rejected by Tricare "because the policy has expired". the policy which expired being her being under her father...... which was months before she got this charge, which was months after she married me..... anywho, the bill contains the usual 'the lateness of your payment means that if you don't cough up these hundreds of dollars immediately you will be referred to collection agencies etc' because apparently Tricare took 18 months to actually get back to the provider and refuse to pay. hooray government bureacracy. nor is that all. :p they accused me of fraud once and threatned me over the phone with jail time because when my son was born the hospital listed him as simply "Baby (my last name)", whereas i was claiming benefits for a "Ryan (my last name)", which was clearly a different child, and what had happened to my son named "baby", etc. and so forth. i could go on and on about these idiots, but suffice to say imagine if the congressman who thinks guam is about to tip over were in charge of designing your health insurance system, which was then staffed by DMV employees working under TSA management.

    Let me give you a clue. It had a little something to do with the fact that they love the health insurance program that Romney brought to them...which hmmmmm is similar to this one in many ways.

    55% Favor Repeal of Health Care Bill - Rasmussen Reports

    March 25 2010


    Just before the House of Representatives passed sweeping health care legislation last Sunday, 41% of voters nationwide favored the legislation while 54% were opposed. Now that President Obama has signed the legislation into law, most voters want to see it repealed.



    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, conducted on the first two nights after the president signed the bill, shows that 55% favor repealing the legislation. Forty-two percent (42%) oppose repeal. Those figures include 46% who Strongly Favor repeal and 35% who Strongly Oppose it.

    In terms of Election 2010, 52% say they’d vote for a candidate who favors repeal over one who does not. Forty-one percent (41%) would cast their vote for someone who opposes repeal.

    Not surprisingly, Republicans overwhelmingly favor repeal while most Democrats are opposed. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 59% favor repeal, and 35% are against it.

    Most senior citizens (59%) also favor repeal. Earlier, voters over 65 had been more opposed to the health care plan than younger adults. Seniors use the health care system more than anyone else
    Did it occur to anyone that many of those who favor repeal, particularly among independents and Democrats, feel that the health care legislation did not go far enough? A lot of people don't like the idea of being required to buy private health insurance without so much as a public option. I don't think it's fair to assume that everyone who opposes the legislation is in the Republican and tea partyer crowd.

    Wait, what? Romneycare was extremely similar to the recent bill. How was he "against" it?
