    You haven’t even opened it.
    So far, it’s been all good for me. And I don’t get a subsidy.

    Just had an article in the paper about a local middle-class family who are paying $600 a month for their health insurance with a 1k out-of-pocket deductible this year.
    They received a notice that their new policy will cost $1100 a month!
    Also, they will now have to pay the first 5k(ded) before any insurance kicks in. They have no idea what they will do come January.
    BUT, luckily their new policy will cover birth control for both the husband and wife. Oh and contraception for the young kids too!
    Thanks Barry!

    And that’s when they should have (and perhaps did, if they’re real people)…
    switch to another insurance company.
    Insurance companies can be dicks, too. There’s still enough of a free market for them to try to get their current policyholders to pay unreasonable amounts for the privilege of staying with the same company.

    Well, it’s the TV and Talk Radio induced coma that count, not what’s actually in the package. Take your kid’s tonsil problems to the Emergency Room, people, and have a great New Year!

    Medicare for everybody. But the camel’s nose is in the tent.

    I get upset enough I turn off the radio at times when PBS gets too liberal.
    Clark, I find some of your posts along the same extremist lines.
    But…single payer.
    Some ideas are just correct, no matter the source.
    Single payer is the only workable solution, period.

    Why would one open what they already know is a can of worms?
    And you know this to be true because…?
    Wait. Let me guess. Because FOX News, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Cruz, (etc, ad nauseum, take your pick) told you so?

    There is more than one commentator on PBS as well as a great variety of programs, obviously if I am turning off the liberal extremist part I am listening to others.
    Your post made me smile, probably for the wrong reason but a smile is a good thing even if it is at you instead of with you.
    I post against ignorant extremism, both sides. A bell curve has two fringes, neither is mainstream.

    “Obamacare” allows people to purchase insurance from a variety of providers. Isn’t this what Republicans want-a competitive free marketplace? Eventually we will have single-payer coverage for all citizens (I hope).

    No, the republicans don’t want anything that will help ordinary people, only what helps their wealthy owners.
    In any case, no point arguing, they ignore anything you say and keep repeating the talking points they’ve been fed. Washed down with lots of KoolAid.

    Primarily because wealthy Democrats are not trying to shift the Nations wealth to only the 1-2%, and are in favor of the middle class having livable wages/salaries, and are in favor of everyone having decent, affordable health care.

    That seems like a lot—until you realize that when I tried to purchase insurance in 2008 at age 60, the cheapest policy was $1,000/month. Not for a family, just for me. And it was not nearly as comprehensive as the policies one can get under Obamacare. I went 4 1/2 years without insurance. As for your example, it’s likely that they can get a subsidy if they live in a state that accepts the financial aid from the feds. If not—well, that’s a little short-sighted on the part of the state, don’t you think? In that case, the situation can be laid at the feet of the state, not the feds.

    Agreed. Cheaper in the long run, and everyone has both access and portability.
