My hope is when the dems take control, the fine for not being able to afford Obamacare reborn is not too high. That is my hope.
Part of the problem is our progressive income taxes. Almost half of the people pay zero federal income taxes. That means the other half would have to foot the bill for everyone else.I live in Saskatchewan where we have government insurance. My wife was diagnosed with a tumour on her spinal cord. She was admitted to hospital in an hour and a half.She spent six weeks in hospital, including physio. The surgery was done by a top neurosurgeon. She made a complete recovery. We do not pay premiums in Saskatchewan. All of the costs are paid by the government. This is true for everyone. All the provinces are the same. It has always been a puzzle why the US doesn't do the same. We have excellent healthcare and we pay for it through our taxes.
Same. I have two great health insurance plans plus Medicare. I have zero problems in that area. My advice to young people has been, and likely will continue to be, get a job that offers great med insurance. Yes the job may pay less than what you may get working elsewhere, but the retirement benefits are what you want. I tell them "Trust me on that because even you will get old".I have great healthcare coverage provided to me by the US Navy.
No, I do not seek medical care on-base, I only use civilian MD doctors. I am no longer treated by HM corpsmen/medics.
