So you think health care is so expensive because of high demand
You need to read more... a lot more. You need to wake up.
Ever heard of insurance fraud?
Enlighten me then. Is it insurance fraud that is the cause of high health care? Where is your data? What is your source?
We have a society that leads an extremely unhealthy life style and then in turn ask for a pill to "treat" them. Every year the average number of
pharmaceuticals taken by Americans increases yet heart disease, cancer, depression, obesity, and addiction remain relatively unchanged or increase.
Yes, it is a fundamental economic principle that increased demand results in increased prices.
No. They will be forced to lower their prices because healthcare will be cheaper elsewhere.
Again I will ask you the same question. Do you think insurance companies will voluntarily cap their profit margins? If not, then cheaper health care
will result in greater profit margins.
You have no clue do you.... health care reform is going to start eliminating excess expenses. Now everyone has to pay, and not just the few.
What excess expenses are going to be eliminated? And When will this occur? The fact that everyone has to pay only benefits the insurance companies.
How does this benefit you?
but when they try to help people who don't have insurance you do?
People don't have health insurance because they can't afford it. People are losing their homes, people are not able to afford healthy food. Yet some
how you think that forcing another expense on these people is going to make them healthier. If a person loses their home or the ability to eat healthy
because they have to pay for health insurance you think this will improve their health?
If a person get's ill because they are without shelter or malnourished will this "insurance" provide for either of those causes of illness?
So, are you claiming that this entire health care reform is nothing but a big scam, and people who previously were not able to get health care still
are not going to be able to get health care?
I know this question wasn't addressed to me however I am curious as to why you believe those who didn't have health care before are going to have it
now? What is in this bill that guarantees anyone health care
And as far as health insurance goes for those that will now have it through their employers, what is going to protect these individuals from layoffs
and wage reductions? What makes you believe that employers can afford this?
