Here is a quote regarding the current health insurance fiasco being forced through (sorry.. hard to keep my bias hidden): “He said the more immediate changes would include enabling uninsured Americans with pre-existing medical conditions to purchase affordable coverage, prohibiting insurance companies from imposing lifetime and annual limits on care and giving small businesses tax credits to buy coverage for employees.”

I want a liberal to use CAR insurance as an example of how it makes sense to force Insurance companies to change their prices of product. In other words… if you have a car wreck.. you should be able to call an insurance company, and without letting them know about your destroyed car, purchase insurance, and they MUST sell it to you?

how is this not a fair analogy?

Why should government force companies to change their pricing structure?

Would you as a liberal want me to come to your house and force you to sell your property and set my own “fair” prices for it?

I cannot see how this is reasonable or just.

ANd what the HELL are actuarial tables for ANYHOW!!!!! god.. is there one reasonable liberal who understands how insurance works.

    More double-speak from the right.
    Auto insurance is to protect the OTHER person, not yourself.
    And the government already can “buy” your house at the price they set. It’s called “eminent domain”.
    For all the bluster from the right, I simply don’t understand why they are complaining about the private insurance companies being *forced* to make more profits from 30 million brand new customers.

    Not one of them. They live in an alternate universe. they peek over in this one and try to make it fit their universe. When it does not work, and it never does, they try to change the laws that govern it.And that way force it on people.

    The reason these rules on pricing will be imposed is that the reforms are based on what works abroad. And there, stopping (un)insurance companies from raising prices for those with pre-existing conditions, and therefore pricing them out of the market, works [7].

    FACT – Insurance companies in the USA admit to pushing up prices, buying politicians and not paying out claims when they should [1]
    FACT – PER PERSON the USA spends more on healthcare than any other nation on the planet [2]
    FACT – Obama debated his plans before the election for healthcare [3]
    FACT – the chance of a child under five of dying in the USA is greater than industrialised nations with universal health coverage [4]
    FACT – Obama was elected by the American people to bring in change [5]
    FACT – Obama wants to stop insurance companies from screwing America [6]
    FACT – The reforms Obama wants work in the Netherlands and Switzerland [7]

    Let me know if my facts are wrong, but please provide proof.
