Only God can cover pre-existing conditions and win in the end. Anyone with an IQ equal to or above a turnip should know this. Sadly, our disillusioned political types evidently don’t have the common horse sense to understand such a simple conclusion.
It was bad enough when they decided that health care coverage is a “right” which I assume in their view is afforded by the U.S. Constitution. Of course there is no such right except in the twisted minds of those elected officials and their supporters who can’t care less about the Constitution. Of course political correctness usurped the founding documents authority long ago. These same pin heads also decided that every American had a “right” to own a home and presto the economy came tumbling down after the mortgage payments came due.
If the U.S. government decides that auto insurers must cover pre-existing conditions (it could happen…) how long can they stay in business? What an absurd idea! It is not however any more absurd than thinking health insurance companies can survive under the same restrictions. Oh, but the “public option” government insurance provider can survive, they don’t have to deal with inconveniences like profitability. Get the picture?
The whole motive of this assault the nation’s health insurance companies is to drive them out of business so that eventually every American person on American soil will have to feed at the government trough. The same goal is behind the demise of the auto industry in the U.S. It is the Democrat way.
The only way Democrats can gain and keep power is to have a huge segment of the voting public (dead and alive) totally dependent upon Uncle Sam for as many needs as possible. Their policies have kept minority people groups in the economic basement for decades and because a huge percentage of them are on some government subsidy they vote solidly Democrat in national elections.
I wonder if there is one or two Democrats in the Senate with enough common sense and love of country to defeat this freedom robbing bill now being debated? Will Senators represent the people who elected them? Many will not. They will vote the party line, their own self interests, at the expense of those who pay for their lavish lifestyles.
Someone has said that people have the government they deserve. I think this might be a true statement. I say read the U.S. Constitution and kick the bums out of office who ignore it. Don’t be stuck on stupid! For some it is a pre-existing condition and they are beyond help.
Fed up taxpayer,
I always appreciate your posts on grace and our security in Christ. Your posts on government and healthcare are intriguing.
what ideas do you propose as realistic options for those with pre-existing conditions?
Keep up the great work.
Your question is akin to asking what my solution is for cancer. How can every person in America be insured, even with pre-existing conditions, including tens of millions that are now uninsured? Here is the simple answer.
1. Premiums will be so high few can pay them.
2. Or, insurance companies will fail and taxes will go sky high so the government run system can stay afloat.
Either way the average working folks are on the hook for the bill.
We need real tort reform. There should be realistic limits on court awards, frivolous suits should be a crime punishable by stiff fines and jail time. This alone would drastically lower health care costs and insurance premiums for everyone. Doctors could reduce overhead by as much as 1/3 the next day after the bill was signed into law.
Medicare, Medicade and other government providers are riddled with abuse, corruption, and theft to the tune of billions annually. You will never see any serious investigation by congress on this.
So long as we have D.C. officials dictating what hospitals, doctors, and insurance companies can do we are in big trouble.
Where we are today is a far cry from “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”.
With a diabetic wife and an asthmatic son, I appreciate that our health insurance covers pre-existing conditions.
I am very sorry your wife and son are ill. I sincerely wish it were not so.
If insurance providers are forced to cover every applicant without regard to health conditions, premiums must be increased for everyone at a drastic rate or they must go out of business.
Life insurance companies charge more premium dollars for 70 year olds than for 20 year olds for the same coverage. Any insurance carrier in any sector that can no longer manage risk will soon fail. No company can stay in business spending more money than they take in. Unfortunately government can and they are.
There is a myth that government can provide free services. Every good or service must be paid for by someone. The costs of research and development and getting the product to the consumer is done by humans who too must eat and have shelter. If the person who receives the benefit does not pay others must pay for him or her, there is no free ride.
I prefer to do my charitable giving through my church, another non profit, or to someone I know. I don’t like doing it by taxation.
Could not agree more. Our health system has some problems that need to be addressed and solved, but to turn it over the federal government? When has the federal government taken over anything and it turn out to be better?
