  • yes, like car insurance. But unlike car insurance (you have the option of not driving, therefore have the option of no paying) Health insurance will be mandatory for every one. Pay up, or get fined. Pay the fine, or go to jail.

  • What Happened to the"health care like Canada"?

    That's been off the table since summer. Here's the BBC explanation, so it's only slightly biased, but not biased towards either party here:

    That's from today.  Check the dates carefully on any link someone posts here to answer you - a lot of misinformation is flying around today because people are claiming info that hasn't been true for months is still true, even though what they are claiming was removed from the bill before it went to the senate.  If the source is not from this past weekend or today, consider it out of date and inaccurate.

  • What do you mean "healthcare like Canada"? You think it's "FREE"? Nothing is ever FREE.


    In Canada, do you go to jail for being uninsured?

  • Actually, this will force people into the government run plan. OK they won't call it a public option but the exchanges will be government run so youtell me the difference.
    Private insurance companies are to be levied new taxes and regulations and when that happens they hand down the costs to the consumer just as any company would. This will in fact raise your costs, whether it be in policy cost, deductable or co-pay or all 3. This will force many to go into the government exchange to be able to afford(maybe, we don't have policy costs here yet) since the government doesn't have to make a profit because it's our tax money that funds their programs. This will put more people and companies out of business. See the trickle down here? Costs rise, people can't afford it but face fines so they pay it and not the house note or the food bill. Jobs are lost in the private sector. This is just 1 of many bad things about this bill.
