Supreme Court Justices: Are Justices, Senators, and Representatives required to sign-up for ObamaCare, or do they get special treatment and so they are exempt?
I believe that ObamaCare is one big mess.
Still, I wish we could do something so that we average people can be covered by some type of health insurance that was affordable and inexpensive.
For instance, average income people could purchase $10,000 to $20,000 coverage, and then the government would kick in with catastrophic coverage once the medical bills were more than $20,000.
$20,000 coverage would take care of routine visits to the doctor and a few emergency room visits per year.
Serious tests and sicknesses---like cancer and heart problems---would be covered by government catastrophic insurance.
People with no income, such as homeless people: We should try to come up with a special program where they can get basic care until they can get back on their feet and pay for some of the coverage.
We have got to do something to help the less fortunate to get health coverage, but sad to say, ObamaCare is not the answer, because its 2,000 plus pages are nothing but pages of confusion after confusion.
I don’t necessarily agree with your conclusions, but you did bring up an interesting problem: is health care, or health insurance, too expensive for the average American? I don’t know, but it would be interesting to see how much it cost if current insurance policies were restricted to catastrophic cases and most people paid out of pocket for lesser problems. The fly in the ointment is that nowhere in the constitution does it state that the government must provide any of the necessities. Health care is of great importance, but not any more important than food, clothing, and shelter. If the government can force a person to buy health insurance, they can pretty much force them to buy anything it thinks necessary.
Health Insurance as exists today is not insurance at all. It is a prepayment plan for medical treatment and a welfare plan to maintain government and private organizations and
parasites superfluous employees.
Christian Hospitals and organizations used to do this. In many areas, they still do. Unfortunately, the Progressive/Communist/Statist collective are working overtime to stop this.
If a private activity can collect donations and provide direct assistance, without government interference, they are able to do the work of Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords. The demonic butt sniffers in DC can't tolerate that.
Obamacare isn't about insurance, or health, or care.
It's about enmeshing people in mechanisms of social and political control. It's Communism.
