New York’s insurance system has been a working laboratory for the core provision of the new federal health care law — insurance even for those who are already sick and facing huge medical bills — and an expensive lesson in unplanned consequences. Premiums for individual and small group policies have risen so high that state officials and patients’ advocates say that New York’s extensive insurance safety net for people like Ms. Welles is falling apart.I have yet to hear or read one good thing about the U.S. plan that will actually help our middle and lower class people.
But this is how it's done:
“In this new marketplace that we envision, this requirement that everybody be covered, that should draw better, healthier people into the insurance pool, which should bring down rates,” said Mark Hall, a professor of law and public health at Wake Forest University. But he added, “You have to sort of take a leap of faith that that’s going to happen.”A leap of faith? Is this how we plan to run this country? You're planning on helping people with programs that you hope will work BY A LEAP OF FAITH?
This is how our country is being run. You think the last recession was bad? Hold on. It will get worse unless we put a stop to this madness now.
Am I missing something, or have about half the people in this country gone nuts?
