The worst is yet to come. 2014 might well be a big eye-opener for most


2015 could be much worse IMO. I've said it other posts, the ICD10 codes start in Oct 2014. Thats the codes on which DR's and Hospitals are paid. From a meeting I had, they could have a major impact on how healthcare is delivered. When they don't pay for a certain diagnosis, or procedure(like heart caths--one of the biggest hits they were talking about)...Medicine and how its delivered, will change like no one is ready for...

Still imagine that 1% of the population, abouut 3.3 million people, qualify as high risk due to pre-existing condition. At $19,259 per person, that is $63.6 billion per year to cover 1% of the population. Anyone wonder why Obama is looking for more tax increases?
This statement indirectly shows the true evil of socialized health care. At some point one must step back and ask... "Is that 1% economically viable given the costs to keep them alive?" What happens when the public decides the answer is "NO"?

This bill is going to make us a much meaner and hostile society.

Nailed it.

If someone truly believes in this then it is the natural progression of thought to consider the individual" cost-benefit" ratio and make a decision to euthanize non-productive members of society.

Progressives won't openly admit it, but that is the root of their vehement defense of abortion and socialized medicine.

I guarantee in reality it is more than that. Think of all the people with diabetes, heart conditions, cancer, etc. There is a lot of them in this nation.

Some of the really bad shite starts then. But we deserve a hard lesson to force the majority of voters back to common sense.

The hard lesson is coming but I doubt that our country will learn much from it.

One of the Kardashians might fart within hearing of a microphone and we need to have priorities, as voters. Pop culture is obviously more important.


We've already lost the 2016 election because one of our best possible candidates took a sip of water

I was hypothesizing to create a numerical example. I know the actual number is significantly higher than 1% of the population, but some of them will be Medicare and Medicaid eligible and won't rely on the pools. The frightening part is the $65 billion price tag for so small a fraction of the population. Remember, we were told 43 million people didn't have health insurance before Obamacare was passed. Even if the cost for the other 40 million people is only $2,000 per perrson that is still $80 billion a year to cover them, and I suspect the cost is a lot higher than $2,000 per person.

From the article:

quote:

Between 9 million and 25 million people with preexisting conditions are uninsured, depending on the estimate.


So that percent is between 2.9% and 8% of the population. So the cost would be between $173 billion and $481 billion a year

Chump change. We can print/borrow that much in three or four days.

Problem solved.

Yikes. I've already accepted that its a matter of time until we have a complete economic breakdown and gov't bankruptcy. It will then take a complete overhaul of our entire policies, gov't programs, and elected officials.

IMO this is why the gov't wants our guns. They know it is coming, they can't or won't stop it and it will get ugly when it all finally comes crashing down.

I find it interesting that hardly one liberal has commented in this thread. Their silence speaks volumes.
