Take a moment and compare the hours, time, and effort it takes you to make your yearly salary, then think about a person that makes that amount or more in one day.

A picture in this case is worth more than a thousand words.

So how long does it take you to make the lowest per day salary?

Notice Wellpoint at the top.......Take a hard look now because these are the same people that wrote Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act.

(NaturalNews) One of the consequences of Obamacare is that health insurance company profitability is soaring, causing corporate CEOs of health insurance companies to pocket millions of dollars in annual salaries and bonuses. This is what happens when a government colludes with private industry to force the entire population to purchase a for-profit product that many don't want (or need). Sales skyrocket and profits head for the stratosphere.

That's why CEOs of the nation's largest health insurance companies are raking in record salaries right now, earning as much as $90,000 per day:

And they want us to pay a penalty if we do not buy into the healthcare system?

( Mind blown )

LOL

Looks like a line up of the real creators of "Obama"care!


-edit- I kinda skipped the OP, I see that you already pointed that out!

Saw this yesterday on FB and shared it saying the same exact thing, funny how this thread is not getting any input from either side of this "Partisan" issue!

You hit the nail on the head sir!

Looking after someone with health care issues, at the moment I am getting about $8- a day. When I was getting paid a more reasonable amount it was about $70 a day.

As for the obamacare bit, there has been a similar thing with the medicare levy in Australia for some time. It only start when you make over $50 000 a year and do not have any medical insurance. There is still some form of a public health care system in Australia, it does look to be getting slower and more strained as resources are shifting among the private and public health systems.

As for CEO's pay, sucks to be us.

When private for profit corporations own our government, this is what you get.
If government actually owned Obamacre it would not have been written by corporate heads and there would have been price controls as well and the benefits to the public would have been priority number one instead of ceo and investor profits.

Look at the stocks for big health and insurance to see who benefits

Corporate Fascism at work

Sadly you were right.
The biggest trick the corporate and political media ever pulled was couching Obamacare as socialism lol.
It is corporate fascism

Looking at your first, "highest paid" example, Joseph Swedish, the actual facts are different.
investing.businessweek.com...

His actual salary is $913,461, or $2,500 a day.
The majority of the rest, being positioned as salary though omission of facts, are stocks and stock options, as well as cash bonuses. All that extra stock/bonus compensation would be based on contractual stipulations of performance.

Also, he's the son of relatively poor immigrants, and worked exceptionally hard to get to where he is.

There are plenty of people from humble roots that break their backs everyday, but are no where near that base salary, not including the extra 16 million in bonuses.

It appears that many people in high positions like this get an "Entitled" mentality, many forget the humble roots they came from, or even take a look to see how difficult things are in the real world. People like this should actually do their best to help others get an affordable health care plan, but instead run with the corporate wolves and take more than their consumable share.

All the extras and bonuses imo are not justified income, but rather income based on manipulation, corruption, and fleecing the masses.

Although I do believe in a form of Capitalism I think things have gotten was out of balance, especially with the CEO's of large corporations.

That knee-jerk assumption isn't always correct.

It sounds like he's working rather hard to fix a lot of problems: New WellPoint CEO Joe Swedish thrives on complexity

The problem with under insured and non insured patients has to with the expensive costs of healthcare in this country.
Is he tackling the costs or figuring out ways to get other people to pay for the inflated costs?

Want to tackle the cost of healthcare in this country?

Disband Insurance Companies and / or get the Insurance, Healthcare and Pharma Industries out of our government and watch prices drop like a stone.

Look at the costs for the same procedures done here and done in other countries as an example.

www.healthnewsreview.org...
Comparing health care costs in US and 8 other countries

1) A hospital stay costs an average of $1,825 in Spain, $5,004 in Germany and an average of $15,734 in the U.S.
2) An appendectomy ranges from an average of $1,030 in Argentina, to $5,509 in Chile, to an average of $13,003 in the U.S
3) The survey also found that the cost of a widely prescribed drug like Nexium can range from $69 in Switzerland to $193, the average cost in the U.S.,” the report reads.
4) Coronary artery bypass surgery, a common procedure in which surgeons take a blood vessel from one part of the body and use it to make a bypass around a clogged artery near the heart, costs $4,525 in India but on average $67,583 in the United States.
5) The scanning and imaging fees of an angiogram – a scan that uses x-rays to find clogged arteries – run from $35 in Canada to an average of $798 in the United States although they can range as high as $2,341 in the U.S
6) The cost of giving birth is one place where the U.S. really stands out. Total hospital and physician costs for having a baby are $1,291 in Argentina, $1,967 in Spain, $8,495 in Switzerland and $9,280 in the U.S.


Obamacare is just another Bailout in disguise for Big Pharma and Insurance that do not want to take a paycut like everyone else in this globalist utopia that Corporate Lobbyists have pushed off on US citizens.
