Here is a prime example of a person who is getting royally screwed by this so-called "better" system: "I had great cancer doctors and health insurance. My plan was cancelled."
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
The very premise of this thread is crap.
Perhaps we need to get government involved, to establish some minimum standards for a forum discussion to meet, and to make it illegal to start a discussion based on a crap premise.
Or perhaps we could allow consumers to judge for themselves what products and services do or do not meet their needs, and allow them to buy those products and services regardless of someone else's opinion that the specific products or services they are choosing are “crap”.
The five great lies of the
We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
There's really nothing wrong w/the policy my company offers, but because the deductible for families is over the limits set in ACA and because it doesn't cover birth control pills w/no deductible, it'll have to be revised next year, which likely means our premiums will increase as well. I certainly wouldn't call our policy "crap"...it covers a hell of a lot more than other policies, and the copays are set in such a way that unless you have a seriously ill dependent, you're really rather unlikely to ever hit the deductible in any given year. And $7,500 in deductibles followed by 100% coverage on in-network care isn't really all that bad, either.

But I think I know what I want in an insurance policy. I think I have enough brains to decide that myself and I am sure you do too. Insurance is an operation, it may cover one or not, but it isn't an operation. The question is, do I want to fly with the hogs and chickens or fly up front in the playboy section with Uncle Hugh or somewhere in-between. That should be my choice.
But knowing me, I would probably bitch if something was regulated and bitch just as bad if it weren't. That all comes with being a crusty old military man.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
