With a 40 billion dollar cut in food stamps—in one of the worst economies in history—where thousands of children will likely go hungry, and a
barbarian attempt to abolish Health Care and probably kill thousands of people in the process, the anti-human Republican Party is in full boar in its
agenda of slavishly kowtowing to the 1 percent and billionaire and millionaire population.
These so-called “Christians” who are literally going out of its way to deny human life saving needs to the poor and middle class Americans are the
essence and epitome of pure selfishness and depraved indifference to human suffering and needs and have again proved themselves to be the most
pernicious and backward force on the planet earth.
They have no reason for being other than to support the bane of human existence on this earth—by adding to human suffering, and the steady downhill
spiral of the American middle class.
These troglodytes of moral depravity, craven huckstering and slavish devotion to the rich class are trying to shut down the government by extorting
the president to kill what they call Obamacare.
This is of course typical of the modern Republican conservative philosophy of always being against human progress for any one save the rich.
They were against all the modern programs that have built the American middle class to the most prosperous on the planet, so they being against Health
care and feeding poor Americans is nothing new.
One wonders how human beings can be so evil and selfish.
This is the most ridiculous monologue I have read in quite some time. This is a viewpoint from a libertarian lesbian musician/financial article
author/video game guru/engineer(since you like labels, I figured I'd label myself before you do).
Now onto my reply: Every group of people is responsible for the current mess we are in.
The healthcare act that has been dubbed the Obamacare act is actually just a law that sets in stone "managed care" which was introduced by Nixon and
most popularly used by Michael Moore in his movie "Sicko"(which ironically then went on to support managed care, 0_o).
Managed care is an "insurance" product that essentially removed the consumer from all aspects of health care decisions, instead placing it into the
hands of insurance companies, employers, and doctors.
It is a product that doesn't follow the traditional insurance model that is high severity/low frequency (i.e. traditional health insurance that paid
for an auto accident) and instead creates a high severity/low frequency/high frequency/low severity product that makes no sense from an actuarial
perspective. Any such product can only exist from government subsidies and inane laws that make no sense.
Health care prior to the Managed Care Act(actually called the 1973 Health Maintenance Organization act,passed by the insurance industry and
politicians) was primarily funded through other finance vehicles. Health insurance was a product that worked like any other insurance product. People
paid five-10 a month to buy a policy that would protect them from catastrophic events.
Everything that I am explaining should be common knowledge but unfortunately there are politicians and authors who deliberately use health care and
health insurance as meaning the same thing. Auto insurance does not equal automobiles. It is very important to understand the difference in regard to
the newest managed care mandate(obamacare).
Please read this article, it is about seven pages I believe and is very detailed.
