I’ve gotten free preventative visits for years. Frankly, I’d be willing to pay a co-pay if it lowered my insurance, since I don’t do preventative visits anyway.

Nothing is “free”. Everybody is paying a LOT MORE for their insurance than the cost of a preventative visit.

Hey, you know how you can get “free” admission to a theme park? You buy a season pass. Sure, it costs 3 times the price of a ticket, but if you have one, you get “free admission”.

Come again, Mayor Bloomberg? Tell me the difference between you and he?

**

I’ll tell you the difference ..Bloomberg and his friends want to disincentivize staying healthy — i.e., it’s Commiecare for all, and no matter how big of a lazy slob you are, you will be taken care of — you have ZERO motivation to take care of yourself.

Under the LibsRJerks plan, government stays the h*ll out of our lives and we take personal responsibilty for our health, availing ourselves of all the free market healthcare there is — it’s cheaper for us, in fact, if we actuallly TRY to take care of our health and don’t allow ourselves to balloon to 300 lbs before we’re 20.

As someone in healthcare, i DO see many folks who don’t give one WHIT about their health. We do pay for this as a society, because we socialize their irresponsibility. I want a systemwhere THEY are penalized for being irresponsible with their health. Smoking causes cancer ...overeating causes obesity which puts one at risk for diabetes, etc ...this is STRANGLING our healthcare system. Come with me, friend, and you would see this.

People don’t know what their care costs ...there is no incentive to do better — if they gorge themselves to death, why should I pay for that?
