hospitals and/or other medical facilities that offer very low cost and/or free health care? The "purpose" that President Obama "intended" for his to be implemented "health" care is to ensure that poorer Americans get the health care they need & are not denied access to care because they do not have the means to cover their health care.Poor people in America have been receiving health care. If people cannot afford to pay for health and medical care, they STILL receive health care. President Obama really cannot leave well enough alone. Our health care system is GREAT the way it IS!

Wrote this awhile back. But the point is still the same.
I respectfully disagree with you, Suzette. The reason that you are paying $100 for an aspirin while you are in the hospital is because there is no regulation of that industry, and pharmaceutical companies pay to be able to charge you what they want.
Yes, and they charge me what they want because those with no health insurance are getting those same aspirin without paying for them, so the pharmaceutical companies make up for that by charging those with insurance those prices to get their money.
suzettenaples-health Insurance=equitable transfer of risk,from one entity to another for a fixed payment-not a right. the government demands an entity insure higher risk person=your payment rises to offset the higher cost=more cost-4-u=you lose!
I'm sorry but health insurance is a right not a privilege. Everyone in this country should be covered and we should be paying with our taxes even if our taxes must go up. I like the European style of health insurance and that is what we need.
Suzette, you can believe that everyone should have healthcare, even that it is a right but if you do then find a way to achieve that end - Ovomitcare is not the way intelligent people would achieve it. It will not make good on any of its promises.
Well said Cara. Solutions usually are very simple as conveyed in your sentiments about this. Some among us seem to think that a 3000 page bill no one can read and understand producing 30,0000 pages of rules and regulations is the way to go? Go figure
All of these are incorrect but I will just illustrate with one. This is the CBO report on PPACA budgeting. It is set to REDUCE the deficit not increase it, stop lying.
I have studied USA budgets 40 years.
ACA budget is filled with fantasy figures.
Estimates in ACA are overstated by $500B yearly.
This is due to false estimates for healthy people purchasing.
revenue = short by .5T
TRUTH is better than fiction.
"According to the OMB & CBO obamysnare will increase the National Debt by more than $1.7 trillion dollars in 5 years." That is a lie, you don't even know the definition of truth, and sorry but I trust the CBO analysis over yours, way way over.
Obamacare is not increasing my insurance. My insurance is not changing and I am not being dropped. Obama said we could keep our insurance and I am. How is that lie?
How About citing an updated CBO estimate. Not that it matters since they were off by about 6 fold in their initial medicare estimates.
Sure how about the latest CBO analysis... which finds it will reduce the deficit even further than before.
suzettenaples Really? SO you are keeping your existing plan with NO changes? Your co pays haven't gone up and your deductible hasn't gone through the roof and the coverage is the same? Well if so give it time, most who willbe dropped haven't been yet
The gross cost is offset by a bunch of unrealistic variables. Didn't the CBO also say that Medicare was going to cost about 12 billion by 1990 and it turned out to be about 100 billion by 1990. Can you name one projection they made that was accurate
