cantgetenough06/22/17 12:46 PM

MegsMom31606/22/17 01:05 PM

Beard06/22/17 02:54 PM
x*Time will tell if this plan works better for you. Let us know. NT
BlondeMoment06/22/17 01:36 PM
x*Does this new Republican proposal look like it will be more beneficial in any way so far? Or should the time have been spent to correct what was
kidfresh51206/22/17 01:29 PM
x*Exactly whatever you didn't like about Obamacare is nothing compared to what you are going to hate about Trump Care. NT
BlondeMoment06/22/17 01:40 PM
x*Well we dont know that yet. It could very well be true NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 01:55 PM
x*We do know. We've now see the bill and it's not good. Unless, you're a white wealthy man, then you got nothing to worry about. NT
cantgetenough06/22/17 02:04 PM
x*We know. The bill tells us. NT

x*I don't understand, with this plan that we have in front of us, takes millions off insurance and still increases premiums for the tax break. It's
petite606/22/17 02:00 PM
x*There is literally no one that agrees it is a stronger bill, or the House Bill this was based off of. They kept it secret as long as possible
kidfresh51206/22/17 02:06 PM
x*I'm not arguing that.. so I guess you're just putting it out there for others? NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 02:15 PM
x*Then what is it you are arguing, that you should all trust Congress and let them pass this thing and see what happens?
Beard06/22/17 02:59 PM
x*I'm not arguing about anything. I just stated how I felt about Obamacare.
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 03:17 PM
x*Not putting any words in your mouth, just trying to figure out what your words mean in this context. This is a discussion forum, after all. NT
Beard06/22/17 05:16 PM
x*There is a reason it took Obama over a year to negotiate with insurers. If Trump is supposed to be so great at this, why doesn't he negotiate
petite606/22/17 03:12 PM
x*You're right NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 03:23 PM
x*I'm not listening to a guy that drinks diet coke, doesn't think exercise is productive and still thinks Frederick Douglas is alive about health care
petite606/22/17 02:11 PM
x*Well maybe he has to be given 4 years to prove himself like Obama had to prove himself with his healthcare reform. Scary huh? NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 02:02 PM
x*So, if he proved himself and his healthcare plan, then you probably shouldn't be scrapping a proven product
Beard06/22/17 03:02 PM
x*I've never mentioned anything like that in my posts. I can say that I'm not a fan of Obamacare. NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 03:11 PM
x*At least Obamacare had vigourous debate and amendments before the vote. And the public got to weigh in. They are literally trying to ram this garbage
kidfresh51206/22/17 02:08 PM
x*Obamacare has never been perfect, most GOP states opted out of medicaid expansion. But how is taking out mammograms, making pregnancy a precondition
petite606/22/17 02:06 PM
x*I never said that any of it sounded good to me I didn't like Obamacare and I'm sure i won't like Trump care NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 02:07 PM
x*I definitely can see why some people wouldn't like Obamacare but that may have to do more with how their state managed it? It would be nice to see
petite606/22/17 03:37 PM
x*Yes I do! NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 03:42 PM
x*Pink, I don't know if you have twitter but this guy gaba is really good
petite606/22/17 07:15 PM

x*24+ million added to healthcare say otherwise and he did change that policy but the quality of insurance is better today than yesterday. That line
petite606/22/17 01:10 PM
x*If those people didn't get healthcare they would be paying fines. NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 01:17 PM
x*do you know the cost of those fines? and would that be unreasonable? NT
petite606/22/17 01:30 PM
x*For many im sure it would be. I'm not in that position so I can't answer for those people. NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 01:47 PM
x*I'd rather have fewer uninsured and Obamacare accomplished that. NT
Blockhead06/22/17 01:28 PM
x*Of course but they were still forced to get it in many cases. It wasn't like yes!! I'm glad approx 8 million families have it now also NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 01:32 PM
x*Is that the problem, that it was forced on a few people? Essentially all government law and regulation is forced/enforced on people,
Beard06/22/17 03:08 PM
x*Petite had said that 24 million people feel differently.
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 03:22 PM
x*that's if they couldn't get insurance in the first place. Insurers were discriminating against covering people, now they can't with Obamacare. So
petite606/22/17 03:32 PM
x*you weren't forced and that was the problem because Obama's admin didn't enforce the rules. They even had Obamacare specialists tell you how to
petite606/22/17 01:34 PM
x* Exemptions from the requirement to have health insurance
petite606/22/17 01:36 PM
x*and if you don't have insurance and you have to go the emergency, who do you think is paying for that? Anyone been in an accident w.a motorist that
petite606/22/17 01:31 PM
x*I needed emergency help a few yrs ago. Private funding paid my hospital bill. They told me that there was millions of dollars available to people
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 01:44 PM
x*Please share how to access this private funding. Who told you? NT
BlondeMoment06/22/17 02:06 PM
x*The hospital told me.. they said there was so much help that people could apply for and get help wirhtheir bills and people just don't do it. They
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 02:17 PM
x*do you mean a high risk pool? does this sound like what you're talking about?
petite606/22/17 02:20 PM
x*No it's nothing like that.. it's private people donating money to the hospital for people in need of it NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 02:29 PM
x*do you have a link to what you're talking about? that would help NT
petite606/22/17 02:31 PM
x*It's basically a charity type thing but depends on the hospital and what network they are in.
Blockhead06/22/17 02:40 PM
x*Awwwww thanks!! do you really see single payer happening? I'm not sure how I feel about that yet...I may prefer pubic option NT
petite606/22/17 02:54 PM
x*Yes, eventually. The GOP plan will fail sooner rather then later. A new Dem plan will work for a while before the GOP tries to gut it like they are
Blockhead06/22/17 03:00 PM
x*I want to see how Cali deals with single payer. I just can't see our capitalist system freezing out health industries but that doesn't sound
petite606/22/17 03:04 PM
x*But, a single payer system doesn't freeze out any healthcare related industries. Canada has a pretty healthy health insurance industry
Beard06/22/17 03:15 PM
x*There is no link. When you go to the hospital and you don't have the money to pay your bill you talk to somebody and they tell you about funding
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 02:37 PM
x*America is finally great again right? Can we stop this now? Please? NT
amandajaye06/21/17 06:53 PM
x*Average deductible for silver plans is $7,474 for families. Under the Senate bill this will increase to $10,464. No joke.
petite606/21/17 06:48 PM
x*if deductibles are so high why would the average young person (young male especially) bother with health insurance at all? NT
tas06/22/17 01:22 PM
x*invincible is a choice. I've paid so much in insurance and have never needed it unless it was for the dermatologist of regular check up but
petite606/22/17 01:28 PM
x*Yep! NT
PinkAuraGirl06/22/17 02:04 PM
x*This is nuts. ACA plans cover 75% of costs on average. Lowering this to 58% will increase deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs by 68%
