Congressman: Oh, yeah - you and what Congress??!
I read the GOP plan and so far it states that:
1.It will allow small businesses to pool their resources together so they can insure all their employees.
In order for that to work you’ll need millions of people (thousands of small businesses with that many people) to get into that plan.Think of it in terms of everyone in your neighborhood insuring each other paying $100 a month. If someone gets hit by a truck and needs lifesaving surgery and rehab, no one else will be insured because all that money is going to save one person’s life. It’ll never work and they are hoping it will never will.
2.Tort Reform: In Florida a man needed one of his legs amputated and the doctor removed the wrong one. The poor guy got his procedure done with the correct and got $1.2 Million dollars for his trouble. With Tort reform he probably would have gotten $50,000 for his trouble. Sucks doesn’t it? And what if he developed an infection and died? Is he still worth $50,000? http://tinyurl.com/ycw3dc8
And the most important issue is that it still keeps private insurance in the loop. They are the problem why so many people are uninsured. In private insurance when x amount of people leave the insurance because they can’t afford it, y amount of people are left. That means less money in their pockets. How do they solve this problem? Raise premiums on existing customers. Problem solved!
Plus the CBO numbers are based on the government involvement in providing health insurance, which is zero (except for legislation)…which is why their numbers are cost effective.
Then there’s the lies that they mention like the Democratic Bill will slash medicare and the like, which everyone has already heard. Eh.
