My company offers a HSA. The plan is great and you really work with your providers to decide what is necessary/what is not, and negotiate costs.
Money leftover is rolled over and invested as you see fit.
Democrats hate personal liberty, and as a result, the HSA style plan is their enemy.
Enrollees purchase a high-deductible health plan (which is generally much, much cheaper than a traditional insurance plan), and make tax-free contributions to a Health Savings Account. It brings a market element to healthcare, which the left despises. They cannot abide by anything that empowers the individual rather than the government; for if people are independent and able to care for themselves, who in the world would vote for Democrats?
I know a few liberals, and it boggles my mind how someone can possess such a different view of the world. People don’t seem to be able to connect the logical dots: giving government more power, necessarily means the individual is less free.
I was so proud of my 8 year old daughter yesterday. During social studies, the teacher asked the class if anyone could explain what the difference was between Democrats and Republicans. My daughter answered: “Republicans believe free people can make better decisions with their money than the government. Democrats believe the government should take more of our money to make those decisions for us.”
The most amazing part? The public school teacher told her she was right!
“My company offers a HSA. The plan is great and you really work with your providers to decide what is necessary/what is not, and negotiate costs.”
Only if you have the extra money to put into a HSA to begin with, and my providers will not negotiate costs which are regulated by my insurance.
