The Insurance companies make "all the money". So says Rand Paul. He wants insurance to cost $1 for "some" consumers.


Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) slammed Senate Republicans' healthcare overhaul bill on Friday, saying that it's grounded in "propping up" insurance companies.

He also called for the creation of a healthcare law that would reduce insurance costs to as little as $1 a day for at least some consumers.

"What I'd like to do is legalize inexpensive insurance, and you should be able to get insurance for $1 a day. I mean, you really should," Paul said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "The insurance companies make all the money; all of this is predicated upon still propping up the insurance companies."

Paul says the insurance companies are getting bailed out because of Obama care's subsidies. Paul wants to repeal the ACA and I guess let some people buy insurance for $1. And then he goes into some BS about cars....


Paul said Friday that the Senate bill failed to address ObamaCare's subsidies to insurance companies, arguing that it continues a trend of "bailing out" insurers.

"I want the bill to look more like a repeal bill. I promised people I was going to repeal it; I didn't promise people that I was going to replace it with a federal program of bailing out insurance companies," he said.

"I mean, we could do this for cars," he added. "New cars are expensive. We could have a car stabilization fund."



And this guy could have been president???? Has he ever seen a medical bill? There is a reason med insurance is high-hospitals are very expensive- in the US their charges are #1 in the world.

Both.

The repubs have absolutely no plan and their pockets are jammed full of lobbyist money, just like the dems.

Why we don't have basic government healthcare for people that cannot afford healthcare is beyond me. I know there are people that will moan and complain. But it really is the best way to go.

We can spend over a billion dollars per day on our military. But when it comes to people we can't afford it? GTFOOH!

I will not say that Paul is correct, but if the insurance companies (and not replaced by another entity... the government) were cut out of the picture, I do believe that the prices for healthcare by the care providers would drop.
Would they drop to a dollar a day?
No.

Well, he is a doctor. So I think it's a safe bet that he knows a lot more about these things than you do.

Rand paul is a doctor. If he says it can be done and has a plan for how to accomplish it, i would like to see it.

Anyone who claims it cannot be done needs to refute the details of his plan or you are just promoting partisan bickering. Let's discuss the details before you throw poop at the crowd.

Either we pay for it outright. Or we pay for it in higher costs.

There ain't nothing free.

Now the cost is a concern, and the US is #1 in COST. #1.

Isn't this the same shot that Obama said. But he was cool, he said it will not cost more than a cell phone plan.
Obama lied and his idiot supporters bought into it.

Now we have a new set of lying politicians that want to extend this piss poor medical system that is far too expensive for another couple of years.

It's all about the money-and Congress will not have to use this system-LET THEM EAT CAKE.

America's government already spends more per capita than any other country on healthcare, they just give the money to corrupt vampiric insurance corporations.

It'd be much cheaper to do away with the insurance industry and institute nation-wide universal healthcare.

Disagree, if he thinks insurance will be a dollar a day he is dumber than he looks.

Perhaps even dumber than O for saying that health insurance would be the cost of a cell phone plan.

What a croc of s%$t!

My dad was in the hospitals icu for 14 days being monitored. They didnt do much but keep an eye on his vitals.
The bill came to $95,000.
Divide that by 365, or $1 a day per year.
That's 260 plus a bit.

260 people paying $1 a day broke even with a two week hospital bill.

The problem as I've pointed out before is not the cost of insurance, it's the cost of the healthcare.
Fix the expense problem, then work on insurance.

Th reason Healthcare is so expensive in the USA is because of insurance companys are willing to let hospitals overcharge them and play the system.

Because the inurance companys make insane amounts of money hopsitals overcharge them because they know they can.

You pay the most for healthcare for some of the worst outcomes.

Opinions vary.

Being a Dr does not mean you are a financial genius.

But the media keeps telling us that is poison. Maybe the media and the medical system have a deal?
