or maybe it's like, well...
you have someone over here that has this condition, insured under his employer. but well times are tough and his employer is forced to lay off some
of his employees, so this guy finds himself without a job, an unemployment check that is barely enough to cover his bills, and well, if he wants to
keep his insurance, he is now gonna have to foot the whole cost of the policy. so he drops the policy deeming food and shelter as more important.
he now has a preexisting condition with no insurance........
I like the provision, but I don't like obamacare. it does nothing to bring the cost of healthcare down to an affordable level, it only tries to
force us all, individuals, businesses, as well as the taxpayers to pay up or else!!!
so, my imaginary guy would have to chose the insurance, no matter the cost, over the food and shelter. and without the food or shelter, it is much
more likely that he will be needing a few visit to the healthcare establishment rather soon..
you can't get blood out of a rock!!! and that is what obamacare seems to be trying to do!
and having a hostage consumer base that is force to buy your product is only gonna serve to drive that cost higher, I mean why not?? I can charge
whatever I want, and everyone is gonna scramble to pay me the money, and it they can't come up with it, then the gov't is gonna have to just
increase taxes and help the people pay the money!!!
no one but the very rich can afford to pay for their healthcare if the worse happens!!! so we have what is basically a ponzi scheme that the gov't
is trying to force us into taking part in. many of us, even after the insurance is obatained won't have the means to pay the deductable and out of
pocket expense to have the treatment if we need it anyways...we are just wasting our money, helping others, more able financially than us, to obatain
