Endrick: I'm sorry GOP, your efforts to smear the affordable care act as "Obamacare" is going to backfire badly and give the blark muslin usurper a name that people will use for years to come to represent their ability to go to the hospital without going broke.

Good job!

No, see, Massachusetts is a state. It's okay if a state regulates economic inactivity and forces you to purchase a product on the free market.

When it's the federal government doing it, it's an utter abrogation of our rights.

Hi! I can lick my own eyebrows: Some things to consider:

See the fable of the the Ant and the Grasshopper Link

Insurance companies like "Ants". People who continuously have some form of insurance are responsible and should be covered for all conditions.

People who don't have continuous coverage are "Grasshoppers". They don't get insurance until they are sick. Then they expect the insurance company's customers to pay for their illness even though they have not been paying into the risk pool for it (thus raising premiums for all). Is that fair?

Also, as for losing one's job and coverage. For Small Group Insurance, there is an allowed "Gap" between the termination of one's previous coverage and the effective date of one's new coverage without penalty. The gap is 63 days in most states, 90 in a few. Also, one can buy COBRA or Continuation (depending on the size of the company one is leaving) to keep their coverage continuous.

It is not all as evil as it looks.


Go away, Mitt

No it isn't. A republican would never recommend learning from a book.

FTFA: "But you don't want everyone saying, 'I'm going to get back until I get sick,' and then go buy insurance."

If only there were some kind of mandate to prevent an individual from doing that.

Republicans have already fixed that little error on other subjects.

Hey, so I hear you want a job? Well to get this entry-level position, you need a couple years experience in the related field. To get that experience, you need this entry-level position. Why don't you work for free for a couple years and we might hire you after that.


So for health-insurance, from now on, we'll just need to pay into the system for a few years before they start covering us.

Yo dawg, we heard you want health insurance. So we decided that before you get health insurance that you'll need health insurance. That way, you can have healthy insurance while you have health insurance!


He's trying to create a market for health insurance insurance: you pay a premium to a company who, in the event you lose your coverage, will buy coverage for you. The coverage they buy doesn't actually cover anything medical, but you get to say you had health insurance.

Yea, as someone with a pre-existing condition facing a nice out-of-pocket equivalent to 3 months of paychecks when I get booted off my parents plan, I wholeheartedly endorse the "Fark the GOP in the ass with a red hot poker" plan.
