Health Care not Insurance company Care.


I found this at Dirigo Blue where Gerald takes on the health care industry, and many more of the hypocrites that infest our airwaves with greed and hate. Yes, that does apply to Glen Goebbels Beck, and Rush to idiocy Limbaugh.

I only give you a preview, go to DirigoBlue for the “rest of the story”. To go directly to DirigoBlue click the title link below.

Reform without a public option is simply giving more money to insurance companies

It is pretty simple to understand, which is why it is so frustrating.

If America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009 (H.R. 3200) is to be enacted in anything like its current form, but without a public option, it will only increase the cost of premiums while not providing more health care.

Or, in other words, a windfall for insurers.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
And in Sec. 301. Individual responsibility, every American is required to purchase and maintain “acceptable coverage,”
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

So why are Republicans and those Democrats that are beholden to corporations that donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to them willing to impose this system?

Money.

We can use Medicare Part D as an example ………………………………………………………………………

Part D led to increases in overall pharmacy spending among all beneficiaries,”

“These increases were offset by decreases in spending on other medical care services in those with little or no drug coverage before they enrolled in Medicare Part D,…………………………………………….

Medicare Part D specifically banned the Fed from bargaining with pharmaceutical companies to obtain lower prices. ……………………………………………………………………

Since private insurers would now be required to cover more claims, they will demand ever increasing premiums, and Americans will have no choice but to pay – insurance coverage is mandated.

Think Enron, but on a nationwide scale.
