    I don’t see how people who used up all of their available insurance somehow subsidized the antagonist in this cartoon. Bottom line is that the young and healthy will eventually be subsidizing the old and sick.

    The healthy subsidize the sick, I think that is the way insurance is supposed to work. Remember everyone will eventually be old and sick and a few will be young and and very sick.

    How about we stop all handouts then.
    this is a true strip, as far as the insurance co. were charging sick more than healthy, that was the way they made a $.
    I am glad pre-existing conditions can now be covered, but not sure if ACA is the right way

    The young and healthy ALWAYS subsidize the old and sick. That is how insurance works. It’s called a shared risk pool.

    I know some actual people who have been effected by Obamacare. There’s my aunt. She had a rough time getting a job because she’s diabetic and potential employers didn’t want to deal with the insurance issues involved. Now she has her own insurance and a new job. Then there’s my niece, who can stay on her parent’s plan until she’s 26. Until Obamacare, she didn’t have insurance. Personally, Obamacare is closing the donut hole on my Medicare, which means it will pay for a lot of medication that would have been my problem before Obamacare. And, there’s my brother who was staying on a job he only needed for the insurance because his wife has chronic respiratory problems and if she had gotten really bad it would have wiped out their savings. Now he has Obamacare and he’s retired. Another person who has benefited is the lady who took the job he no longer needed. I don’t personally know of anyone who has had a problem with Obamacare, and those who are featured on TV so far have turned out to either being lying or too stupid to actually check out how it works. So, if you folks who are screaming about how bad Obamacare is have some actual cases of people who have been harmed and offset all of these benefits, put up or shut up.

    Ah, just lay back and feel all the hate these Jesus-loving “Christians” can spew. Obviously none of them paid attention to a single word in Sunday School.

    “There’s my aunt. She had a rough time getting a job because she’s diabetic and potential employers didn’t want to deal with the insurance issues involved.”

    Why would she disclose such health issues before getting hired?

    That is how it works. Didn’t you know? Just like with mandatory car insurance all the good drivers subsidize the fewer bad ones.

    Those “guys” have nothing to do with the medical profession. So got any more dim ideas?

    If the Plutocrats have their way they will want the old and sick to die quick.

    It is no surprise that Conservative Pres. Obama and the majority in Congress chose a Republican based addition to our corporate health care. (No one else trusts it. Even when they do they are non-profits.)

    Sorry, NG, but that’s not quite how it works. Oversimplified, but perhaps more accurately, it the majority lucky drivers subsidizing the fewer unlucky drivers. With health insurance it’s the lucky healthy subsidizing the unlucky sickly or injured.
    `
    Relatively few people really understand how insurance actually works. Heck, most people completely misunderstand how private insurers make their profits. (Hint: it’s more like the way banks do.) I’d have to write a book to adequately explain all the nuances of insurance.
