Subway11- I hope they do get rid of this socialized medicine bill.
For one, I don’t know how insurance companies will be able to stay in business because if they have to cover everyone including those with preexisting catastrophic illnesses they will all go bankrupt.
It is just like going out and buying car insurance after you have had the accident and expect full coverage.
This is probably by design so that the government can eliminate private insurance companies and leave the government as the sole source of insurance coverage. I am holding out hope that it will get repealed because a Federal Court Judge in Florida already struck down the entire bill stating that it was unconstitutional.
We do need cheap health insurance but there are better methods to lower insurance costs. The best way to do that is to allow insurance to be sold across state lines.
If we allow insurance companies to sell their polices in all states equally, the sheer competition will drive costs down and will make individual health insurance more affordable.
