also of that 20% what percentage of the 80 already have it because they are working, couldn't get it through their parents etc etc
sorry, nice try but your inane babble and attack on that poster was uncalled for, this is why everybody saw through it. Please keep trying to back pedal and reframe you post and move the goal posts, it furthers my entertainment. To show honesty and integrity the thing to do would be to say you misspoke and unfairly judge that poster but of course you cant do that.
If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
Before I went into Illinois' ICHIP program (subsidized), I was paying $850 a month for a $5,200 deductible policy through American Family Insurance. Every year I saw my premiums raise 15% or more. I couldn't change to any other insurance company because I have a health history that immediately made me uninsurable. Could you afford $850 a month PLUS $5,200 a year in medical bills? Probably not. The greater majority of people in this country could not.
Those who found themselves in my position, millions btw, if they had assets but couldn't afford that $850 a month -- $15,000 a year with the deductible -- they lost everything they had. And then they went on Medicaid.
Others in their employers' group policies who might want to strike out on their own with a great business idea were hopelessly trapped in a system that encouraged you to use healthcare -- and then tracked your health history and used it against you to deny you coverage.
That ****'s over with. No pre-existing conditions exclusions. And for that to happen??? Everybody's got to get insurance to spread the risk.
Obamacare's not perfect. This 29-hour definition of full-time has GOT to be lowered. It will be. And then employers won't be able to screw their employees by staffing with 29-hour employees, thus avoiding buying health insurance as a group. I'm sure there's plenty more that needs tweaking. But DAMN if we're not on the right road.
so what is Obama going to do next start penalizing companies that hire or put people on part time what do you think will happen after that companies will just stop hiring period
Since the ACA was signed into law, my contribution to my health insurance has tripled while my benefits have fallen. However, if I signed up for the ACA, I'd pay more than double what I'm paying now.
Fat lot of good that did us. That's why we need to repeal and replace. Now.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
