“Common sense” is in no way a reference to an enumerated power granted to the federal government to “protect people from themselves”. Nor is a policy that does not cover things I have no need to be insured against a faulty or dangerous product I need protection from. As an example, being in our late fifties, we have no need to be insured against pregnancy. Or against addiction for that matter.
For the vast majority of people insured through their employer, that was not the case.
They do not
You are talking “enumerated powers” and I am talking common sense.
Health Insurance isnt a one size fits all.
Obamacare promised basic rights for health insurance.
Trump is rolling back those protections to the detriment of American society.
the really good thing is that trump wont always be president and his vaunted EOs will be undone by the next Democratic President.
Its common sense to regulate things to protect citizens.
The state requires minimums? How come you don’t pine for the option to get less than the minimum required?
Yes it was, they could get health insurance for their adult children, like I said, they just had to pay for it. You are saying they couldn’t make their employers pay for it, not that they couldn’t buy it themselves.
We’ll see about that, it’s going to be a different court the next time it goes to SCOTUS.
LMAO… Yeah, you could always buy health insurance on the open market… .Just like today…
I don’t mind paying for your kids or you.
Thata the difference
Correct, like I said, you could always insure your adult children, you just had to pay for it instead of making people like me help pay for it.
You make it sound far more easy and simple than it was for a great many people.
The sad irony? Under the old system, the people who needed the most help were the ones that had it the worst.
Yep… in the end it is cheaper. It is gets paid for one way or the other.
The other way ends up being a lot more expensive.
It’s basically the entire concept of insurance.
Most of the time you pay for other people. Sometimes they pay for you.
You see the chart the white house put out about single payer and wait times? It’s a back fire
Well yeah…that why I never understood these guys arguments…the reality is you dont like the source not the actual insurance because it’s the same damn thing.
What do you think the political consequences of the Texas lawsuit to remove the requirement to cover pre-existing conditions be for the GOP in 2020?
I looked that up.
it is hilarious.
I just dont get why people would vote for these liars…besides judges
The whole GOP media blitz that they are for protecting preexsiting conditions after spending nearly a decade to erode those protections is so brazen in it’s lies it is incredible.
And the thing is… it is going to work.
Except it used to be on a voluntary basis, and you could pool your risk with people who had a similar risk as you did to keep costs down. It’s not insurance if you have an expensive known pre-existing condition. Any more than it would be to sell someone who’s house had already burned down fire insurance. Or someone who had already wrecked their car auto insurance.
So I can send you the bill for our co-pays and deductibles now? Sweet,m what’s your address? Can I get this agreement in writing?
