    Young folks can't afford health insurance even with this corrupted Obamacare.
    Young folks havent a future because of this corrupted ObamaCare.
    Young folks should be getting an education instead of an Indoctrination.

    It is stupid for the young and healthy to so overspend for insurance so much more than they need. In effect they are being told to pay for the healthcare of their grandparents.

    Its the Achilles heel of obamacare. It doesn't work without the young people signing up for it.

    @tpl So the plan is to sacrifice the economic future of the young for the benefit of the old. Sounds like a very stupid plan.

    @fraps Yeah, they should be saving all the money they can as social security won't be there when they retire.

    What's the big deal? I subsidize smokers, fat people, dumb people, oil companies, too big to fail banks, countries in the middle east, pharmaceutical companies, people in red states that get back more than $1 for every dollar washington collects in taxes. The list just goes on and on.

    The "young and healthy" frequently get injured or are dx'ed with previously-unknown or new conditions. It can take just one hospital stay to destroy a person's savings (if any), even if they are older and stable.

    What kind of moron suggests that someone not get health insurance? Do you think that the GOP is going to be there to take care of any young fool that takes their advice and then suffers a catastrophic illness?

    Why do republicans hate America and Americans?
  • #28
    !
    The question should be; why do americans hate republicans? Well, let me count the ways. First of all, unpaid medical bills has been the #1 reason for bankruptcy in this country for 20 years. Furthermore, half of those bankrupted people HAD health insurance. So now the gop says to pay in installments? What, like forever? Republicans want young people to risk their entire adulthood just to make some stand defending the denial of healthcare to people so that they just go ahead and DIE? The ceo's making tens of millions of dollars per year want young folks to kick themselves in the nuts? Typical republicans.

    Last time I checked, this is how all insurance works. Those who don't need or rarely need insurance end up paying for those who do. I also pay taxes that go to public schools even though I have no children and do not use the public school system. Why is this still such a shock to people?

    Damn car insurance too, that the state requires me to have. I've got a clean record and am so damn tired of subsidizing other peoples' accidents. Makes me want to go out and crash my car so I can get my money's worth!

    I pay high property taxes so I won't be surrounded by idiots. I could get a decent house for a mere 400k in the middle of nowhere, but then I'd be surrounded by bible thumpers and the KKK who still run rampart in those kind of parts.

    Young people need insurance and should not be discouraged from obtaining it. I'm not a fan of the ACA and would like to see it totally rewritten or overturned. My doctors are in opposition to it and inform me the cost of insurance and care will increase.
  • #52
    !
    Health care costs would be a LOT lower if doctors and hospitals posted their Chargemaster so everyone could comparison shop. Free Market and all that.
  • #53
    !
    @NormalFlora
    That would be one way of lowering some of the costs, and to reduce the paperwork required in billing is another. I'm finding that the billing departments for hospitals and doctors are buried in paperwork. If we could reduce the billing cost we could lower our bills also.
  • #60
    !
    @Bill2E It doesn't help that each insurance plan has negotiated their very own separate Chargemaster, so the billing office has to make sure they're using, for example, the United Healthcare CM and not the Humana CM when they bill $45 for the Ace Wrap and $7.50 for each Tylenol capsule.

    Despicable Republicans do everything from passing bogus legislation to launching ill-fated campaigns all in a desperate effort to thwart progress.

    Yea sure, "you will find out what's in this bill, But we have to pass this bill first"

    Oh that's right, You must be one of those folks who required forced control.

    @Vance1 Wrong on both counts.
    The House passes legislation that won’t advance in the Senate or anywhere except the narrow scope of their own obstructionist views out of spite for the sake of their petty opposition to anything that represents progress from a Democratic president in the Whitehouse.

    @Camelbak
    So do you take into account that millions of we the people are against the liberal left wing democrat agenda?

    or do you feel that the party in power should just force their ideal upon us all.
    Because I will remember that when the republicans are in power and how much you are for forced agenda's.
  • #54
    !
    @Vance1 Yes and I also take into account that too many take their opposition to the extreme when they agree with a desperate Conservative measure that recklessly resorts to persuading our youth not to sign up for health insurance. They’re stooping to a new low.

    @PNWest Not unless you cause the accident, then the other guy pays for it. As to a catastrophic illness, the odds are in your favor. But life is a crapshoot.

    @tpl Have you ever known anyone that used up the maximum benefit from an auto accident? I don't, but only cause my state is one of a few that doesn't have a cap. For this however we pay through the nose for car insurance.

    Obama has destroyed the future for many Americans. I don't know of any young people that can afford any type of insurance. Much less the debacle called Obamacare.

    If there is no way to stop this hideous bill then shut the government down until 2016, then we can repeal the mess.

    To the putzes hollering for Obamacare. Do you not wonder why when they passed the law that says we the people must take Obamacare, in that same session they passed another law that says the elected people and ones that work for them do not need to use Obamacare.

    So it's good enough for your welfare asses but not the elected ones.

    Screw them, I refuse to comply.

    Hmmm.....when there is a viable solution to social security being solvent any longer.....then maybe one can explain how Obamacare could not turn into the fiasco social security is and how this country would not turn into Greece and other sub-socialized states?
  • #25

    Actually the GAO did a study linking obamacare to additonal solvency of social security....go ahead and google it. Its ok....everything will be alright...shhhh....

    I tried to do as much research as I could, and nobody knew anything about obamacare and could not answer any of my question. All I know is that my premiums have increased by 45% so far. I lost half of my coverages, my deductibles went way up, and prescription costs doubled. Now that my pharmacy, my doctor, and my insurance have the info they need...I am seeing that I am screwed, and I owe it all, all this loss of income, to obamacare! I do not understand why I have to get screwed to get this crap off the ground!

    Just for fun, I reviewed my situation if my 22 year old self had been transported to 2014:

    1. There was no way in hell I could have afforded Obamacare. Even adjusting for inflation, it costs more than I earned until I was 26.

    2. I had no routine medical problems, so the Obamacare discounts on old people treatments meant nothing to me.

    3. My only medical expense was serious orthopedic surgery and rehab, of which I would have paid the first 12k in today's dollars (including the premiums). My max payout under Obamacare is 15k, but my total medical costs would have pushed 60k. So I'd have made a profit in the year I had the surgery, assuming I had 35k for my share of the surgery. In other years, I'd have been paying the 5k premiums and getting nothing back.

    We should ONLY encourage our Young to goosestep to Pelosi's vision of County Hospital grade healthcare for every ones family BUT the politicians who VOTED to force it on everyone else. All Hail The Obama!!!.....SUCKERS!!

    The current system exports the cost of indigent care onto everyone else. By pushing this idea, the GOP is endorsing a system that encourages bankruptcy, Medicaid applications, and increased premium costs for everyone else, except, of course, those earning enough to not see insurance premiums as a burdensome expense.

    Do we needed further evidence of the Republican Party's indifference to the middle class?
  • #31

    It is the height of political selfishness to ask young people to forego a much needed benefit so that rich old white guys can lie about the ACA.

    Listen here, the ceo's of health insurance companies are paid the prevailing market wages. 6-15 million a year sounds about right to me. Seriously, what about them? Many have multiple vacation homes they need to pay for, and those property taxes can't be offshored.

    Health care costs are a primary reason young people go bankrupt. Telling young people that they will have to pay back astronomical costs in installments because they don't have insurance is extraordinarily stupid. Young people are still mortal and often, getting insurance will cover their children. What asinine thing to do.
  • #23
    !
    Of Course, Republicans don't want young people to buy subsidized health insurance under Obamacare because it will make the healthcare exchanges less competitive with Big Insurers and protect the Big Insurer monopoly stranglehold on the insurance markets , raising prices whenever they feel like squeezing more money from the individual insurance consumer .
  • #21

    Yeah living in america with no health care insurance. A classic case of stupid. The younger generation only has to look at older family members and their catastrophic problems and reject this nonsense out of hand.
