Healthcare for all!!!

Yeah, put me down as one of the 59 million.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Nearly 59 million Americans went without health insurance coverage for at least part of 2010, many of them with conditions or diseases that needed treatment, federal health officials said on Tuesday.

And it looks like I will be staying that way for a bit longer.  I had to drop my insurance last year because it was just too expensive and I couldn’t afford it.  When time for the company to renew the insurance came up this year, there was a 27% increase….no way I was going to afford it this year either.

There is plenty about the Healthcare Reform that I do not like, but one part that I believe is stupid as hell is the fact that insurance companies have to take on pre-existing conditions.  Insurance is a gamble for an insurance companies, they are gambling that you will not have any serious illnesses and will actually make money off of your premiums, just like car and home insurance.

Where do the politicians and the American people believe the lost income for the insurance companies is actually going to come from?  The insurance companies are just going to absorb the extra cost?  I think not.  You are going to have increases across the board and then you are going to have even more people that cannot afford health insurance.

So, moral of the story…I will pay more taxes, insurance will sky rocket even more and I will still not have any coverage.  Thank you Mr. Obama!  You are doing a really great job!!

  1. Prescription Drug Benefit.
    The final version (conference report) of H.R. 1 would create a prescription drug benefit for Medicare recipients. Beginning in 2006, prescription coverage would be available to seniors through private insurers for a monthly premium estimated at $35. There would be a $250 annual deductible, then 75 percent of drug costs up to $2,250 would be reimbursed. Drug costs greater than $2,250 would not be covered until out-of pocket expenses exceeded $3,600, after which 95 percent of drug costs would be reimbursed. Low-income recipients would receive more subsidies than other seniors by paying lower premiums, having smaller deductibles, and making lower co-payments for each prescription. The total cost of the new prescription drug benefit would be limited to the $400 billion that Congress had budgeted earlier this year for the first 10 years of this new entitlement program. The House adopted the conference report on H.R. 1 on November 22, 2003 by a vote of 220 to 215 (Roll Call 669).
    Marsha Blackburn Voted FOR this bill.
