>Okay, maybe you're right, Obamacare does add regulations to all health insurance.
But relatively minor effect on people with health insurance from their employer.
-Really? So the employer just takes up the slack? There is a Dave Ramsey video (ACA) floating around on the net about free lunches and 8th grade (?, he probably meant to say 4th grade) math. I encourage you to watch it. Here is a link that I will provide at no charge. https://www.daveramsey.com/show/videos/dave-breaks-down-aca-obamacare
>Major problem is that before Obamacare, healthcare costs have been increasing much higher than inflation until the cost is a major drag on economy, Obamacare is an attempt to fix it.
-And it's pretty much kicked in the afterburner since this deal was first mentioned. 30% since Bama showed up. Thats better than CDs. My rates were bumping and participation was diminished at my company before this law was ever passed... to pad for the shock. I thought the scare tactic justification premature and off-base. I was wrong.
>Another reason for minimum standards is that if some states have better care, then all the poor people will go there and overwhelm them.
-While this makes no sense at all (giggling doubleface palm) can we just waive a wand and "declare" or "proclaim" all mininum standards are now in effect? That way there won't be any lines to see the DR., in Wyoming for example.
>Another reason for minimum standards is that in this great country, some people should not just be thrown out on the sidewalk because they can't afford health care.
-My wife works at a county hospital in a metro area. You should see all the bodies they throw out on the sidewalk. It's crazy. Paying customers can't even get in sometimes for all the bodies out front.
Art Laffer says this thing will be dead in 4 years, because it's such a cluster. That's opinion. He's a smart guy, provided lots of evidence, and I tend to agree with him on this one, but it's still opinion.
Dave Ramsey talks about the math. Math is typically free of opinion. If you got lost in some of Dave's tangents, yeah he kind of strayed a time or two, but the point is there is no free lunch.
We pay for the uninsured anyway, is an argument tossed around. So now are my property taxes going to go down since my premiums went up?
Jerry my friend, keep posting.
