#211 - I'm confused, what's so terrible about universal healthcare?  [+] (20 new replies) 10/02/2013 on Facebook. +19
User avatar #293 - liquidz (10/03/2013) [-]
The thing is it is not universal healthcare, it is a mandate to have insurance to pay for healthcare.

You have to buy the insurance, and if you are lucky your employer will pay a portion of it. Many companies are now hiring people part time only to avoid paying it.

Failure to have insurance that meets the requirements makes you have to pay a yearly tax. That tax will be $700 every year, and the insurance can be just as much if not more.

This law is so fucked up that the people who wrote it made themselves exempt. I don't know what else you need to know.

#280 - papaken (10/03/2013) [-]
Yeah, that's not true, anyone with Google could refute that claim immediately.
#282 - nospyonme (10/03/2013) [-]
Congress, the president, and all of their families, are exempt from the. Anyone with google would know that.

EXEMPT FROM THE WHAT?!?!?!
User avatar #311 - nospyonme (10/03/2013) [-]
According to papaken you would know if you have google.
But I was talking about the Affordable Healthcare Act (2010)

The rules about the law are tweaked a bit for them, but it still affects them quite a bit.
#290 - nospyonme (10/03/2013) [-]
It's so good they dont want it
#318 - papaken (10/04/2013) [-]
To be fair, their current healthcare plan is pretty similar to the AHCA. I wouldn't expect them not to tweak it a bit.
User avatar #319 - nospyonme (10/04/2013) [-]
To be fair, if it was a good idea why do they want to keep the FEHB program? I mean, it's good enough to have one system for the people who make the laws, and a different one for the rest of us.

#320 - papaken (10/04/2013) [-]
Politicians are corrupt, man. Not saying they aren't. I'm not surprised at all that they want to keep everything that they like in their old program. But, I really don't think that the Congress would intentionally pass something in detriment to the American people.

but, yeah, politicians are asshats
User avatar #321 - nospyonme (10/05/2013) [-]
Most of the people that voted for it did not even read it. And most of the people that voted against it actually read it.
#322 - papaken (10/05/2013) [-]
Well, are they gonna say "Nah, I voted against it because Obama put it forth herp derp socialism" or "Yes, I read through the bill, and I don't like it"?

User avatar #286 - Crusader (10/03/2013) [-]
Except you are thinking of it as "I'm giving this money to someone who is too lazy to work for it" instead of what it actually is which is "I, and everyone else who pays taxes, am throwing this money into a giant communal fund which will be drawn from in the case that I, or anyone else get's injured."
Very few people are going to use it who are too lazy to work.
But you know who will use it?
Blue collar workers and their families who get injured and can't afford medical bills allowing them to recover, go back to work and make money which they can put back into the economy. Instead of getting injured, working themselves into an early grave trying to pay off bills/being permanently disabled and unable to work meaning that they then live off of social security/welfare.
User avatar #243 - robinwilliamson (10/02/2013) [-]
1. What's wrong with paying less?
2. They set the line at 400% the national poverty line, how can anyone complain about aiding other people's health care at that point?
3. In what sense does choosing whether or not you get it a right?
User avatar #259 - xxiixx (10/03/2013) [-]
I'd like to start by saying I blame both parties for their lack of compromise that has caused this, no one party is to blame. Now, on to the rant.
This will be the first tax that is mandatory simply for existing in the USA. Sales Tax? Don't buy anything (Grow your own food or something idk). Income Tax? Don't work (maybe you have inheritance or you can be completely self-sufficient). Property Tax? Don't own property. ObamaCare (Tax)? Either buy (meaning money out of your pocket) one of our plans or we will fine you.
As for his first point, how can you pay less than $0? He is saying he currently has no health care(presumably he doesn't find it top priority as he doesn't have any dependents to think about and is in good health) and thus pays no money. With the new plan, he is forced to either purchase healthcare or be fined a percentage of his income (or $75 but only if it is LESS than the former) that increases with each year he chooses not purchase it.
The other big complaint with Obamacare is that it requires companies with 50+ employees to provide health insurance to full-time workers only. This has already caused a lot of companies to make full-time workers part-time and just higher more part-time workers. My mom got her hours reduced to part-time by Kirkland's last month presumably due to this. These people now have fewer work hours and to add insult to injury are forced to buy their own health insurance or be fined.
Just my 2 cents.
#217 - ronrod (10/02/2013) [-]
The taxes would have to raise and a lot of places would have to fire employees to stay afloat since they couldn't cover the cost of paying insurance for all of them. Basically the money to fund UHC would have to come from some where and no one wants to pay it and there are some people who believe that the Govt. shouldn't be able to basically force people into paying for health insurance.

Basically, the silly creatures have a habit of ending up exactly where you don't want them to be, e.g. swamps composed of main muskeg, in the middle of lakes, 10 feet away from you and ready to charge your ass, just outside of the WMU where your tags are good... At least that's my experience with them.
