I don't know why this is a matter for debate. Any sane, logical person should realize that making sure EVERYONE gets health care means that your neighbors and other members of your community don't make YOU sick, kill YOU when they pass out while driving, go without psych meds and shoot YOU in a movie theater, and a variety of other things that basically come out to "Healthy community = Less risk to EVERYONE in the community, including yourself."

"But I don't wanna pay for someone else's health care!"

Fine. That's the same thing as saying, "I want someone else to spread a disease to me and my family because the carrier couldn't afford treatment." but you go ahead, enjoy knowing your tax dollars WEREN'T spent to raise the health and safety level of your community in this one way.

People who aren't for universal health care should be denied police, firefighters, clean water, safe roads, public schools, public parks, and clean air. If you're going to complain about "your" money being used for things that benefit everyone, then you should be allowed to opt out and not benefit from ALL the things your taxes pay for.

organizmx: So in the comments one dude writes this:

"This guy needed a new job that would provide coverage..not a handout from the rest of us."

So then the sister member of the guy who got the transplant responds:

"He had a job which he couldn't keep because of his health issues which began over 3 years ago. It took the doctors many months to diagnose his condition. He was young, healthy, working, supporting his family and not looking for any handouts from anyone. He got sick, lost his job, his insurance, etc etc. I am not a fan of Obamacare and do not wish to get into some sort of political debate with anyone. All I know is because of the new law my brother's life was saved, my niece and nephews have their father back and my parents did not lose a son."


So Obamacare literally saves her brother's life, but she's still not a fan of it. This is why America will never, ever have nice things that the rest of the first world has.


Any day now she's going to be a millionaire (those nightly prayers to supply-side-jesus have to be working soon!) and is just concerned that the poor people are going to take all her money.

You're completely spot on, just goes to show how toxic politics are (in western countries... to be honest USA isn't the only one doing this).

jayphat: yakmans_dad: jayphat: Wait, am I reading this right that the guy initially got sick because he didn't have health insurance? As in, he chose not to have it because he didn't think he needed it? Then, when he needs it, "OMG! everyone is denying me coverage because I'm sick!" I'm glad the guy survived. Let this be a lesson for, at the least, catastrophic coverage.

Amazingly enough, the designers of the law had that in mind. The individual mandate -- to make sure everyone has insurance -- is there to eliminate free riders. That's combined with the guarantee that you can, in fact, get insurance.

It's almost as if the people who wrote the law thought about the problems and consequences.

I'm fine with mandating catastrophic coverage. Mandating minimum coverage, than listing a bunch of preventative care that must be covered 100% that people won't need because, doesn't count as minimum coverage.  As an example, I'm a guy and don't need to see a gynecologist but it must be on any plan under the ACA 100%. Now that's just silly.


Are you sure? Because it sounds like you have sand in your vagina.

Depends on the jurisdiction, but if you dont decide to pay for fire coverage, when your house is on fire, the fire department might just show up to make sure you house doesnt catch the
neighbors property on fire.

There is nothing wrong with that..

haywatchthis: every town should have hospital


No, they shouldn't. Every town should have high quality access to emergency care, if that care is a trained and professional EMS provider able to transport them to the proper destination, or an ER capable of caring for them until they can be stabilized and sent to the closest, appropriate facility.

Giving every town a hospital is not necessarily a good idea. The reason we made the move from everywhere having a hospital, to having smaller facilities with limited capabilities were linked with larger, regional and highly capable facilities is because those rural facilities were killing people in droves who were admitted to them when rural physicians and nursing personnel missed clues or diagnosis that would have been caught in a larger, higher volume facility.

The history of Advanced Trauma Life Support, for example, is a pretty terrifying look into how things "used" to be.

This still happens all the time, in offices with good coverage.   It happens because people either have shiat to do at work, or they are out of money and can't afford to take the day off and not get paid.

These people are still not going to get care, unless they get lucky and get sick on their days off.   The only way you will keep those guys from passing their disease to you is
if you pay them to take the day off.

2014-02-15 06:27:58 PM  

relcec: it's nice having sort of universal coverage. it just sucks that the dmeocrats have become so corpocratic that we chose literally the worst possible way to do it immaginable which won't even slow down medical inlfation, which is the real reason we have a problem in first place.


Actually, the Affordable Care Act did one of the best things for slowing down medical inflation - it created the ACO, where providers are paid based on the value of care given, not the volume of care.  If there is one thing that can help contain costs, it's aligning the financial incentives of the providers with the needs of the patient.

2014-02-15 06:36:05 PM  

Nutsac_Jim: The system doesn't make them buy insurance.  If simple charges them a token amount.  They will simply pay the fee, wait for the heart transplant, then sign up.


Except that signing up includes a delay that is, depending on when during the year you enroll, between two and fourteen months before the coverage takes effect.

If you're the rare person who has a major medical condition that is actually capable of waiting that long, then sure.  If you get in a car accident, or need any emergency care, good luck.

Nutsac_Jim: Nobody sheds a tear about women getting cheaper auto rates, but you you try to let men get cheaper health rates because they don't take a day off and go to the doctor every two weeks, you are a misogynist.


It actually averages out pretty well, if you look at the cost to insure an individual before retirement (when Medicare would cover them).  Men are actually more expensive to insure per year than women after the women hit menopause.

Women have a higher amount of total lifetime medical costs, but that's because they live longer, and the cost of medical care rises quickly for each additional year you live.

Typical post-transplant meds are often pricey:
Prograf

Then whatever drugs for blood pressure, cholesterol, etc., most of which should be generic.

The expensive ones are on-patent, were expensive to develop, and have a limited market. Companies are trying to make their development costs and maximize profits before they go generic.

Take away the marketing and sales costs, take away the Super PAC, http://www.nationofchange.org/topics/political-event/super-pac  How much did those drugs really cost to develop? Isn't there something like a thousand known chemicals that they just mix and match to make all the drugs they use now? Haven't our tax dollars gone to grants that have improved the computers used develop these drugs? Have public grant money been used to research these drugs? If the public is forced to pay for insurance, shouldn't there be public transparency into the true costs? The Democrats are now worse than the Republicans about gouging the general public. At least the GOP doesn't act surprised when we aren't happy about it.

Medical care is too important to leave to the free market. So the government got involved and it was regulated. The regulation then worked to keep prices high. Then there is insurance to pay the high prices. Since people had insurance they didn't care the prices were high and the prices got higher... but not everyone has insurance so there are then welfare programs to pay the high prices but not everyone qualifies for the welfare programs so then there is Obamacare to subsidize the insurance of some people at a cost to other people.... so the high prices can be paid....

Perhaps maybe, just maybe, something should have been done about the high prices?

We should be working towards making medical care cost less and less until even the "poor" can afford it. Like cars, TV sets, AC, etc and so forth. Afford it, as in paying cash money out of pocket like for everything else. But instead what happens? Shoveling more wealth into the hands of the medical cartel, the drug companies, the insurance companies, etc and so forth because they have the political influence to make it that way.... until the whole thing implodes and the government takes it all over. Then it really gets bad.

If the answer is so self evident, you surely must know of a place where your idea has been tried, and is working to deliver top notch health care to the masses at affordable prices?

I cant wait until the same principles apply to auto insurance.  I'll buy some heap at the junkyard, then take out an insurance policy on it and get it all fixed up for the price of the deductible.   I mean, its not fair that poor people with beat-up cars cant get them fixed simply because they didnt buy car insurance. Think about their children riding around town in an unsafe vehicle... Won't someine think of the children??!?

Phineas: I liked the part where the guy acted irresponsibly and could have had health insurance before his heart infection but he was healthy so he didnt think he needed it.

I wouldn't say liberals love Conservative voters, but we don't wish them to die because of poor choices either.
