First of all, I doubt if a State is going to just drop all the employees health insurance. Where did you hear that?
Secondly the cost of health insurance has gotten way our of hand. A 12 grand per year policy is way out of line but you are right about the cost.
Not many employers can afford policies like that anymore as a benefit. Our health insurance costs 12 grand and the copay is growing every time we get
it. It wasn't any cheaper before the Obamacare bill was passed either. The whole medical industry has become too expensive.
My wife had some AFIB attacks and the out of pocket for the tests was about two grand. They ran tests and gave her medicine which made her legs swell
up. I reduced the foods we eat containing niacin and the AFIB disappeared. I was making foods high in Niacin to help me regain the ability to
process Niacin from Triptophan. I got my body unlocked from the pallagra but it cost us two grand. I now watch the foods I cook and eat differently
than my wife. She can eat foods I can't eat and I can eat foods that she can't eat. I didn't try to boost her niacin but she wanted to eat my
soups and she bought chili powder that was really strong making her recipe too hot.
This whole medical thing has been created to make us fear things when all we need to do is watch what we eat and drink. The hospitals need equipment
and employees and because of their high costs need to recoup these by more tests. We need socialized medicine where the doctor heals people on the
first visit. Obamacare will not be enough. We need to take some of the chemicals out of food, including natural based, that attract people to eat
them. We have to get back to a more natural genetic based diet and destroy the Western diet before it destroys us. We need to relearn what our
ancestors knew and reduce the medical related industry and insurance jobs from 20 percent of the US income to about 10 percent. We need to start
building more here in America, stuff we need everyday.
Like I said, I doubt if a state is going to cut existing workers medical coverage. All the states and businesses will probably be getting rid of
Retired peoples medical benefits if something isn't done to lower these costs. This would be happening with or without Obamacare. I've been
watching these rates rise rapidly for a while wondering when it was all going to come to an end. No employer is required to supply medical insurance
in this country by law. If they supply coverage it needs to include certain things.
Most States are broke, they can't keep giving good benefits to their employees. This is a recession. You need to start watching PBS for your news
and not only Republican propaganda news. You need both sides politically and a good conversation with an Employer about rising insurance costs over
the last ten years.
