    We wouldn’t be worrying about the complexities of the Heritage Foundation’s idea if we had adopted Single Payer.

    Just another big-government mandated handout by Barry, at the expense of the middle-class. What’s new?
    Maybe if he just got all of his lawyer buddies out of the doctor suing business, we’d have affordable healthcare.
    Instead we’re all about to have equally CRAPPY care.

    Delayed implementation can be viewed as 2 things.
    Meant to pass the buck to somebody else.
    or
    To allow market to adjust.

    Considering we are talking about macroeconomic reform, it would likely prove to be a bad idea to move fast.

    How dare he give opponents what they asked for!

    An administrator at one of our local hospitals told me that 87 million dollars of their ‘losses’ come from people who come to emergency rooms without insurance or means to pay as well as the legal costs of trying to pursue those who don’t pay.
    Those of us with money, insurance, and the insurance companies make up for that 87 million.
    This is an example from only ONE hospital in an area with a population of around 500,000.
    Every time you pay for a procedure done at a hospital, you are paying the healthcare tax so many complain about. Only those who never go to the hospital escape this tax.
    Is it time to turn people away if they can’t pay? Shall we cut back on services for the elderly or the very young with chronic conditions?
    How do we deal with the rising cost of medical services in a way that give access to all without punishing the few?
    This is an important issue requiring civil debate and respectful consideration, and it demands that each of us contact our legislators to tell them what we think while, at the same time, discussing the alternatives with one another in a way that advances the debate and unites our neighbors.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    So if we are already paying for this lack of coverage, why is the new health care, which will still leave some oncovered, costing us so much more now? If those uncovered already get coverage since hospitals must give them service why is the new system—which adds mightily to the bureaucracy of the health care system needed?

    @Quipss

    They’ve had 3 years to get it figured out. I wouldn’t exactly call that “fast.”

    @ Reflex:
    This move is purely a political one to spare some congressional “leaders” from being put out to pasture.

    @ Archimedes:
    Answer on that one is easy: It’s because the government is mucking with the actuarial tables of the insurance companies. They are forcing an increase of covered services, and restricting premium differences between classes of users. That’d be like saying you can’t charge a 16 year-old driver who just got his licenses and already has 2 at-fault accidents more than twice what a 55-year-old accident-free driver would be charged. When you force bracketing like that, all it does is raise everyone’s premiums.

    In one comment you take nz4m60 to task for calling the name “crazy”, and in the next you call the name “socialist”. Were you intending to make a joke, or just not realize the hypocracy?

    I’ll never understand cons. They came up with this brain child and when it passed they want to abort it.

    Sure, the government does everything else so efficiently.

    Barry will skip town. He will skip the country. He has bigger fish to fry and he has a plan to do it. After all, he is an international citizen.

    Boehner got 98% of what he wanted, now it’s up to 99%, and they still keep calling Romneycare, partially rewritten by the Heritage Foundation to screw it up even worse for the feds, “Obamacare”.

    I love the delay, that part of Obama Care will not come till after November 2014.

    The state of Massachusetts voted to implement a health care system. Romney only allowed it to happen without veto.


    ONE state Vs ALL 57 + the 2 that Obama did not visit during the 08 Campaign. ;)
