So it's ok for people to live year after year after year after year on welfare?
If Romney does the same thing he did in Mass. He'll limit the amount of time you can collect. Two years I believe, then it's time to be a big boy for a year before you can collect again. It has since been changed but it was a good system then and there.
And you really think it's the middle class that is taxing the health care system and our hospitals? I say nay.
Actually, the majority of gov't benefits goes to Social Security, Defense and medicare in that order. Please refer to the chart below.
Actually, poor people are provided with free healthcare, it's called medicaid. Wealthy people can afford healthcare. Middle-class people are a job loss away from losing their benefits and cannot receive medicaid until they are down to their very last thousand dollars to their name and zero income and no equity. This means that unemployed people who still have a savings (401k, stocks, bonds , investments, etc) and equity in property with zero income are between a rock and a hard place. What do these unemployed people do for healthcare you ask? They simply don't pay for health insurance on their own b/c after getting an unemployment check (1/4 of what they used to make) and paying all of their bills they don't have enough money to pay for health insurance, probably not even enough to cover their bills b/c most americans over extend themselves. If the unemployed don't have health insurance and they get sick guess what? They run up a bill at the hospital and simply walk out passing the bill to you health insurance payers, one of the biggest reasons our health insurance rate go up 30%+ EVERY DAM YEAR.
Not only is it unemployed people who run up our healthcare bills but it is WORKING middle-class people who do contractual work or other type of work that does not include health benefits. Yes these working people CAN pay for they health insurance but many don't and just don't give a dam and pass their bills to us. My sister's bf does this, he makes good money with his self-employed construction work but can't see the benefit of attaining health insurance. The guy owns a 200k house and rental property but puts the properties in my sister's name so it looks like he has no assets that creditors could go after. Even the middle-class that do not hide their assests chose to not pay for health insurance b/c many states have the Homestead Law which prevents creditors from taking their homes. THESE ARE THE MIDDLE-CLASS PEOPLE I'M TALKING ABOUT. COMPRENDE?
Poor = covered
Middle-Class = Phucked
Rich = covered
NOW DO YOU SEE WHY PEOPLE WANT TO STAY POOR? MIDDLE-CLASS IS A JOB LOSS AWAY FROM POVERTY.
WITHOUT OBAMACARE WE MIDDLE-CLASS WILL BE SCREWED LIKE WE ARE NOW! Without a healthcare system change health insurance will get to a point where it's so expensive that you will see more and more middle-class people stop paying for health insurance and we'll end up with free health insurance anyways, closer to socialism that you stupid middle-class republicans constantly whine about.
It's kind of like how car insurance used to be, back in the day car insurance wasn't required and many would just simply not get car insurance and when they got in a wreck they would get sued but if they didn't have anything of value and were poor in sense of having no assets on paper and nothing of value in their name they could literally walk away from an accident without paying a dime and the other person's insurance had to cover the damages making car insurance rates much higher. Now that car insurance is a requirement by law EVERYBODY has to have car insurance or you could lose your license. As a result of this mandate in law requiring anybody who drives a car must have car insurance, this drove down the car insurance costs. This is the reason why we pay much less now for car insurance than we did back in the day. With ObamaCare anybody that CAN afford health insurance will HAVE TO get health insurance or they will get fined. It's only fair for us middle-class people who pay for our own insurance. The more people that are covered will bring the costs down just like it did for car insurance.
It's all common sense but most of america is too stupid to realize the current system screws us royally.
Romney seems to think the current healthcare system is fine, YEAH FOR HIM! He's rich why should he give a crap? As long as the healthcare system is turning a hefty profit who cares about the little people.
Actually, Obamacare is almost the SAME EXACT system he enacted in Massachusetts. The only reason he won't keep obamacare is b/c the republican party has instructed him to be against it.
The current healthcare system benefits the poor and wealthy only. The real republicans are wealthy, they don't give a flying turd about the middle-class.
