Yep, that is exactly what we ended up with after the idea of nationalized health insurance went down the drain thanks to politicians and lobbyists
resurrecting the old specter of Communism.
ok, so if you're agreeing with me that this is what we have in the ACA, then why did you say it was something else?
Then perhaps Americans should have really decided what they wanted their Congress to do in order to correct our healthcare system.
they did. they want free stuff...and that's what the president, and the government promised them...and then they pulled their usual bait and switch
BS, and now we have this idiotic piece of crap in place...
but since it's being touted as the greatest thing since the babyjesus, the people who point out that it's a mess, and really quite awful, are
shouted down, and called "rasist", and are portrayed as EVIL people, with an agenda, by people like Harry Reid...
Thank you. It's manageable/correctable depending on which one lol but not curable--at least not without a stem cell transplant, lol. If
you're referring to my discussion of what one would prefer me to be a leech upon--either get medical care and potentially become a tax paying citizen
also "paying in" or end up on disability, in either case, it'll be your tax dollars at work to fund my existence. My point is that with the ACA,
the odds of me becoming a tax paying individual are infinitely higher as those things prohibiting me from working are largely correctable. There is a
relationship between the ACA and SSDI. Without the ACA, people who are sick and in need of medical care but are not getting it will eventually become
SSDI recipients. With treatment, they might not and actually become tax participants in this country. It's that simple.
i'm glad for that...no one should have to suffer needlessly...unless they're truly awful, and deserve it, lol
as to the rest, ideally, i'd prefer NOBODY be a "leach"...however, i do recognize that true disability DOES exist, and it's only right to try and
help your fellow citizen...which is why SSDI is a good thing. what's bad is when people pull some magic BS, and exploit loopholes, and fake stuff, so
they can collect....they pretend to be truly disabled, because they either can't find work, or don't feel like working, and then they collect money
that could be going to people who actually NEED it.....if you are truly f**ked, to the point where you absolutely cannot work, i don't mind helping
to shoulder the burden of funding your life...that's only the right thing to do.
as i see it, the ACA, and SSDI are nothing alike. SSDI(on paper) helps people who cannot help themselves....the ACA is a blank check made out to the
insurance industry, and federal government, with "we the people", as the endorsing party..
Yet, at age 65, you'll also no longer be paying into the ACA because you'll be receiving Medicare. At 65, that is when we all become even.
how do you reckon?
if i have a job, and i'm made to buy insurance, and the deductible is so high, i can't make use of the policy i'm paying for....and at the same
time, i'm paying into SS, and medicare......i'm basically paying TWICE for medical services....once for a policy i'm forced to buy now, that i
can't use, and once for something i can't get access to for a very long time.....how does that make us equal?
