Maybe then the c0nservatards will wake up, see the light, and realize just how screwed up America’s healthcare system is, especially when compared to other developed countries.

When you get cancer, have fun selling your house since your precious private insurance company won’t cover you.
If you oppose healthcare reform or universal healthcare, then yes, I do hope you develop cancer and are denied coverage for it being a pre-existing condition. And I’ll be laughing.
@Cookie Monster – Why didn’t the Repubs reform healthcare from 2000 to 2006 then?

    Wow! and you libs say that conservatives are mean.
    I have never heard a conservative wish cancer or a miserable life on anyone, but liberals do it quite often. Nice.

    but if ANY of you were actually paying attention you would know that the conservative plans cover ALL CATASTROPHIC illness. No one would be left out in the cold because of cancer, horrible accidents,etc.. or any pre existing condition

    ADD: Yeah, why am I not surprised that you would do that? Typical liberal scumbag

    Thomas – They SHOULD have! When did I ever say otherwise? What conservative has ever told you that things are ok the way they are?

    Thanks to the reforms, that will no longer happen. But by god, they will fight for the right of insurance companies to use death panels to deny treatment to those they are meant to cover!

    I do not understand why so many Americans have fallen for lies about healthcare in the USA, abroad and also the planned reforms [1]. I mean, if the healthcare system in the USA is so good, why have no other nations taken it up? Could it be due to the following facts?
    FACT – the USA spends more on healthcare PER PERSON than any other nation on the planet [2].
    FACT – the US has higher death rates for kids under five than western European countries with universal health coverage [3].
    Or if the US healthcare system is run so well, why not run the fire service like the healthcare system? [4]
    Maybe that is because in the USA, insurance companies push up costs, buy politicians and refuse to pay claims that people pay for [5]. (Look up Wendell Potter on YouTube to hear more if the link below is too long.)
    Obama wants to make insurance cheaper, stop insurance companies from refusing health coverage to those with pre-existing conditions, and make sure they pay out when they are meant to [6], a system similar to that which works in Taiwan [7]. He debated this before he was elected [8].
    Is it right that a dead American four year old would have had a better chance of life if they were born in Canada, Cuba, Germany and so many other industrialised nations with universal healthcare?
    If you think my arguments are wrong, e-mail me with proof. But if you can not, let Obama try to help America. If he fails, vote him out in 2012.

    And by the way, it is rude to insult your opponents. Pity them, but do not insult them.

    They do not have to worry about it anymore. It will get covered, because of the new Health Insurance Reform. Thank God for Democrats.
    You see, the whole issue was that there was not ENOUGH people denied to make a majority in the nation, so maybe the MAJORITY in this country did not see the reason for this Health Insurance reform, but our President had a vision, that the Majority is not the Tyranny of the Minority and thus we have a start on Health Insurance reform and hopefully…..

    New Health Care systems in the United States..

    Not for greed, but for mercy
    Not for profit, but for humanity
    Not for power, but for God.

    That is my dream, and it should be, from my opinion, the dream of the whole country. I am not cynical. Government can do great things. My mom gets social security, my dad did not have insurance and died early, she was a great home maker, but she STILL gets this benefit and health benefits because of him.

    Thank God for our elected Government.

    IT IS NOT ALWAYS BAD!

    I am not cynical

    I agree with you except for hoping someone gets cancer.
    The current private health insurance we have now is BS. They always try to get out of paying. And anyone who doesn’t think so has obviously never had to have surgery or known someone that had to have surgery. I’ve personally known someone to have cancer and her health insurance refused to cover any of it.

    deny coverage? what does that mean? i pay for my medical services in cash. all americans did before the 1950’s when the government started getting heavily involved in medicine which reduced the supply of doctors by burdening them with paperwork, regulations, fines, etc and increased the demand for them by subsidizing some peoples care. this caused prices to increase sharply. people couldnt afford health care and insurance became necessary to pay for routine procedures. insurance wouldnt be necessary to see doctors if the government wasnt involved in it. and then the state government started forcing insurance companies to insure people with pre existing conditions, to cover certain diseases, etc. this caused prices to increase. less people started buying insurance. then the government came in and said see, not enough people have insurance, we need to fix this. but they caused the problem in the first place! learn history, dont wish death upon people you dont know. you just look like an angry fool.

    “What are the c0nservatards going to say when they develop a pre-existing condition and are denied coverage?”

    We’ll say: See? We were right abour Obamacare. What are you going to say when Obamacare denies you much needed medical care?

    “When you get cancer, have fun selling your house since your precious private insurance company won’t cover you”

    Didnt happen to us before. So why are you acting like its going to start now?

    “If you oppose healthcare reform or universal healthcare, then yes, I do hope you develop cancer and are denied coverage for it being a pre-existing condition. And I’ll be laughing.”

    You wont be laughing so much when it happens to you, your loved ones, or your fellow liberals. Youve got to remember, that sort of thing can happen to anyone of any political stripe.

    What’s interesting is that if a person doesn’t have the wherewithal to get medical insurance then sooner or later they will develop a preexisting condition which the medical insurance companies will use to deny coverage should that person ever have the wherewithal to pay for medical insurance

    You’re alive, so you got help. Right?

    Many on the left think that healthcare is a right not to be denied to anyone. I think they’re wrong. I think their hearts are in the right place, but they’re simply wrong. And before you start with the heartless conservative crap, hear me out.

    Everyone in this country deserves the opportunity for healthcare. No, and I mean no one, should be denied coverage. This, as I’ve said, is one of the things I think the current healthcare legislation has right. People with preexisting conditions SHOULD be able to get care, they should know however that they’re going to be paying more. Smokers should be able to get healthcare insurance, but they should pay out the ass for it because they make the conscious decision to endanger their health many times a day.

    Regardless of whether you think that healthcare is a right or not, let’s try to look at the issue from an economic point of view. Even before we do that, we have to come to some realizations. Whether you like it or not, the United States of America was founded on free-market principles. We have a lot more regulation nowadays, but our economy is essentially a free-market, where supply and demand sets pricing. Even if you think that capitalism is the bane of humanity, it’s here to stay. At least in this country. And so long as we have a capitalistic society, we can’t be instituting things that will affect a large portion of the economy negatively. Healthcare is estimated to make up 16% (Washington Post), and instating a healthcare system which negatively affects the economic efficiency of said system will hurt the economy. There’s no way around it.

    hen you go to buy homeowner’s insurance, you’re purchasing a good. It’s the same when you buy car insurance. You’re buying a good.

    “But those don’t pertain to the wellness of people” you say. Some could argue that they do, but I won’t. Let’s dig deeper.

    Health insurance is only one type of insurance used to hedge against emergencies or tragedies. What about life insurance? Life insurance is used to make sure that those who depend on someone else to make the living have fiscal security after their loved ones have died. Should this be considered a right? What about long-term care insurance. This is becoming increasingly more important as the baby boomers start to retire. LTC insurance is something bought by the insured to make sure that when the inevitable time arrives in which they are put in a care facility they won’t be a drain on their family’s wealth. Should this be considered a right?

    We can extend this argument to dental insurance and optical insurance. Are these rights? They are certainly good things, and they should be made available to anyone, but they’re not a right.

    So what’s a government to do? If health insurance is not a right, then what can it do to lower costs? First we have to address the first problem in this dilemma, which is the government is trying to do something (PLEASE GOD STOP THEM!). Their hearts may be in the right place, but their brains aren’t.

    Some people think they should set prices. This is a worse idea than putting a drink in Teddy Kennedy’s hands.

    When the government sets the price of a good it creates a shortage. When a good is in shortage, it must be rationed.
    So, if the government considers healthcare a right it will start to set prices. In this case the price setting is taking the form of a heavily subsidized “public option” that still might get through both houses. As I said in my previous post, this public option business is just one more thing that will complicate the market and increase prices for free market alternatives. This will push more people into the public option and eventually drive private health insurance out of the business except for the very rich. The public option is just a stepping stone on the way to a single-payer health system for the progressives.
