Ken, thanks for your continued attempt to respond in a reasoned way with those who disagree with you even when they attempt to belittle you. You help remind us all what this forum should be all about.
While law enforcement officers have some leeway in applying penalties to those who choose not to obey the law, we should not be allowed to pick and choose which laws we will obey unless we are willing to accept the consequences.
and another one bites the dust.
"Aetna Inc. will withdraw from 11 of the 15 states where it currently offers plans through the Affordable Care Act exchanges, becoming the latest of the major national health insurers to pull back sharply from the law’s signature marketplaces after steep financial losses."
"That's just the way it is."🎤
Ken, thank you for not using ideology and talking points to state your case. When one is serious about the topic they use specific examples of why maybe, just maybe capitalism can work regards health care. Lasik surgery is an excellent example. I also noticed that it appears the YVMC is lowering the cost of their MRIs. More capitalism at work? Also I can vouch for your statement that healthcare insurance costs were much, much lower before ACA was implemented
One might wonder about about anyone considering HRC. Enough of the Clintons and Bushes. Rational people are not blind idealogues and are willing to consider alternatives.
Tim, I'll take the bait. What is it that Trump supporters in this string of posts are making excuses for. Also FWIW I am not a Trump supporter yet. I will not vote for HRC. Am considering the Libertatian candidates.
According to the Milliman Medical Index The annual cost of medical expenses for a family of 4 with PPO coverage has increased from $12,214 in 2005 to $25,826 in 2016. According to the BLS CPI inflation calculator the $12,214 annual medical expenses in 2005 should cost $15,074 in 2016. That is the problem with health care. Costs are out of control.
To misquote a banned from this forum poster. Ken is of course exactly right.
Trump has blown up Republican Party. Looks like the combo platter of Bernie and Vlad just might do the same to the Democrats. 👍
