    LOL.

    No. But just like everyone else they have no choice about whether or not to purchase health insurance. It's mandatory. Only the really poor get government help.

    We were proposing that the elderly get vouchers for private insurance, but people thought they'd be dieing in the streets.

    Insurance is not for maintenance, it is for unforeseen costs.

    So with a 10k deductible you pay for a lot of Dr visits. I'm not sure what your beef is here any more.

    I even found a cheaper plan at 107 per mnth.

    While HSA's are good, they could be better by eliminating the rest of the maintenance benefits, further lowering the cost of the plan.
    Making it nearly universally affordable.

    Some of the regulations in the presidents plan put HSA's in legal limbo.
    Because it requires lower deductibles and greater coinsurance coverage, as well as mandates on preventative care that has to be paid for by the insurance company.

    Re: Sen. Rand Paul: Right To Health Care Is Like Believing In "Slavery"

    The Rand Pauls need to explain to me..if no one has a right to healthcare and people that work or dont work and cant afford it gets sick...what happens. I want them to explain to me if someone with no healthcare gets a communicable disease what happens.
    What happens when a 3 yr old of parents who dont have a right to healthcare and cant afford to buy it gets very sick.
    We ship kids from all over the world to the USA for specialized surgeries that cant be done in their country for FREE here..we even pay the airfare...and we have americans like Rand Paul saying screw all of you that cant afford health care...he sucks imho

    Because the cost doesn't keep up with the rate of health inflation. Furthermore, theres nothing in the bill that states that insurance companies have to cover them, let alone not gouge them because they are old.

    If one insurance company charges way to much, based on actuarial numbers, then another will compete to earn the profit at a lower rate.

    That is the nature of the world of business.

    Thats not the point. Theres noting in the bill that prevents seniors from being dropped because they are too old or too sick.
