ERASE AND DON'T REPLACE. You are up in your ivory towers on this one and I'm down in the trenches. My health care went from $1,200 per year to $12,000 per year.
If your boss is paying for your health care then his plan has gone up to $6,000 per year or so. And now that we have $5,000 to $10,000 deductible no one can use their plan.
Insurance is NOT healthcare.
95% of us are in this situation and we're paying for the 5% that have pre existing conditions that are racking up millions of dollars in healthcare cost. Those people get healthcare and plenty of it. We can't go to the doctor with our cold sore or our sprains, because we can't afford the deductible.
We have to rip this thing out and that will create competition which will drop all the prices and allow us to have decent care at a decent price rather than working 3 months out of the year to pay for our health care.
They use our money to buy armies of administrators for the healthcare insurance companies and the federal government including the IRS.
It must be repealed NOW. We can't let it die because the vast majority of us are struggling every day. Another year will bankrupt innocent, hard-working people.
