Health Insurance. These f**king criminals are killing the economy and it's only going to get worse as the baby-boomers get old and are too scared to just go ahead and die.

:cuss:

So what what evidence do I present to support my case? I have my own health coverage for my company (a group plan). The first year our coverage went up the maximum allowed 9%. This year the cap is off and it's going up 13%. Now, does anyone else think that medical costs have gone up 21% in two years? Didn't think so. So, where is that money going? Extra programs for the gimme generation, bulls**t like "Silver Sneakers", where indigents and old farts can get together and work out at my expense. F**K THEM. Let them wrinkle up and die.

I want a plan that is exclusive to young, healthy people. I'm sick and f**king tired of carrying the water for other people. I just got off the phone with my broker. Typically when a new plan is introduced the costs are significantly lower to get people to sign up. If I can't find one of those I'm going catastrophic coverage only and paying out of pocket for every visit.

All you people (especially illegal immigrants) who are sucking the life out of the health care industry can suck my ass.

PS, any of you dumb f**ks out there that think getting the govt. involved is the answer can latch on afterwards.

That's where I may be going. I'm also talking to my lawyer today to see if there is any way I can protect my ownership in my company from a personal bankruptcy. If I can I might not even get catastrophic insurance, I'll be meeting my insurance broker next week to talk all that out.

Our small business plan has increased 40%, 25% and 28% the last three years. At the same time in an effort to reduce the impact we have increased our deductables and reduced the coverage. At the time of our initial 40% increase, the agent told us it was due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. So what is the reason for the next two? :hmmm:

Good advice to switch careers, I have done it quite a few times. The problem is really getting out of hand though for small businesses like JspChief's and the others.

No "generation" ever gave me a penny. My PARENTS took care of me until I was out on my own. I'm fine with taking care of my parents (though I seriously doubt I'd need to). Hell, I'd be fine paying for my grandmothers' care.

As for the baby boomer group being so huge, I fail to see how having a huge group of people sucking on the system that is currently partially funded by (but will soon enough be entirely funded by in the case of socialist insecurity ) a class that is "too friggin small" makes it MORE solvent or LESS expensive.

get the idea? Let me see here, I will make an effort, please help me out if I get off track.
Generation before taught us :
1) It was good to smoke, in fact life would just be better all around if you do. Please smoke anywhere you want, even around babies.
2) They taught us to drink, life is just plain better if you do.
3) They sent us to Viet Nam to stimulate the economy.
4) They gave us color television to entertain us.
5) We learned to ride bicycles without helmets or knee pads
6) We rode around in cars without seat belts
7) We were involved in the whole racial revolution because of the wonderful many previous generations prejudice.
8) We were taught that it was ok to dump waste oil in the sewer.
9) We were taught that it was ok to dump waste on the whole evironment.
10) We were taught that natural resources were basically endless.
11) We were taught to buy American products and support our economy.
12) People with long hair, or looked different were bad.

Now what have Baby Boomers created:
1) The computer that you are on right now and the whole internet system.
2) Smoking is basically no longer socially a plus. (I smoke)
3) We have raised a bunch of very spoiled children because we gave them everything.
4) We have invented CDs, DVRs .
5) We have basically ruined the economy for future generations by not adhearing to what we were taught on line 11 above.
6) ESPN and the whole cable network, satellite tv
7) We have developed the world economy much to my dismay.
8) We have gone to war to wipe out terrorism.

Is this close to what you were looking for?

I probably did a poor job of labeling the whole thing. I feel like the second part is what we baby boomers have done since we have been in control. The first part is what I was exposed to as a youth growing up by the previous generations. I was born in 1950. The funny part, my oldest sister was born in 47 and youngest was born in 65.

I injured my back last year. My wife called the abulance because I couldn't even get up to get in car. The paramedics came and assisted me into the abulance for a short little ride to the emergency room where I recieved two shots in the ass of demerol and a prescription for percoset (which I enjoyed BTW). The ride to the fuking hospital was about a mile and a half. My share of the total bill was about $600 dollars. I think the total bill was over 2 grand. I just could not fuggin believe that a 1 mile ride in an abulance, two shots and prescription costed so much. I was appalled.

One day last year I suddenly experienced numbness in both arms, and it didn't go away. After a couple of hours I went to the emergency room. The total bill for being there for about four hours was nearly $3,000, $550 of which came out of my pocket. After I was there about half an hour, the numbness went away (and never came back). They never did determine the cause, although I suspect it was probably a pinched nerve. But all that money and time, and they basically did NOTHING other than poke and prod and siphon my f#cking blood.

If that ever happens again, I'll probably just stay home. Hopefully that won't result in my death, but at this point, unless I'm bleeding out of my eyes or in screaming pain, I'm just going to ride it out. To hell with getting financially assraped by the scumf#ck hospital. I'll just take my chances. If that's the cost of the first night, seriously, I can't afford to be sick, whether I am or not. Who can?

And I have Blue Cross/Blue Shield. According to the commercials these evile f#cks run on the radio every day, I'm as safe as a babe in his mother's arms. Yeah, right.

Every year healthcare costs go up and healthcare benefits go down. All of us (excepting those who are made of money) are one serious medical problem away from financial ruin - especially after our Republican friends rammed the new bankruptcy laws through.

Bastard. That beats my free cable and internet.
I dunno. I think you have the better end of this deal. In 12 years with the company, I've used my insurance twice. I use cable and the internet every damn day.

Bastard. :cuss:

How do I sign up for that free cable and internet gig anyway? ;)

A 20 year old female who's only been driving for 2 years should be paying 350 a month.
That's bullshit and I'll tell you why! Give me a chance to **** up with an accident or something. :banghead:

I have no violations, no accidents... no ****ing anything!

It's not "actually" free. It's 20 bucks a month for the whole package. But that's better than the 130 I was previously paying 2 years ago.

I'm sorry. But your gender and age group cause the most accidents. I hate insurance companies as much as the next person. But unfortunately, women are bad drivers and the insurance companies know it.

I understand what you're saying, but that is not the way it works. The insurance company must weight the risks to cover you and at your age, the risk is very high. In their opinion, they probably expect that you will have at least 2 wrecks before you hit 25.

You aren't very smart.

You should have put that $350 a month towards paying cash for a dependable beater and paid liability insurance instead of full coverage.

That way when you turn 25, you can use all the money you saved to buy a kick ass rig.

Health Insurance. These f**king criminals are killing the economy and it's only going to get worse as the baby-boomers get old and are too scared to just go ahead and die.

:cuss:

So what what evidence do I present to support my case? I have my own health coverage for my company (a group plan). The first year our coverage went up the maximum allowed 9%. This year the cap is off and it's going up 13%. Now, does anyone else think that medical costs have gone up 21% in two years? Didn't think so. So, where is that money going? Extra programs for the gimme generation, bulls**t like "Silver Sneakers", where indigents and old farts can get together and work out at my expense. F**K THEM. Let them wrinkle up and die.

I want a plan that is exclusive to young, healthy people. I'm sick and f**king tired of carrying the water for other people. I just got off the phone with my broker. Typically when a new plan is introduced the costs are significantly lower to get people to sign up. If I can't find one of those I'm going catastrophic coverage only and paying out of pocket for every visit.

All you people (especially illegal immigrants) who are sucking the life out of the health care industry can suck my ass.

PS, any of you dumb f**ks out there that think getting the govt. involved is the answer can latch on afterwards.


I don't know many people who don't hate insurance companies, except for people who work for them.

I will agree with your statements and rightful hatred of insurance companies. In some cases (auto) you've got the government aiding their profits.

However, I'm not too sure you are totally accurate with your sweeping generalizations of the "boomers" or the "gimme" generation. I'm part of that generation and I've never received squat from you or any part of the government. And I've paid a hell of a lot more to this country. (At least I assume I have since I assume you are young and I know I am not).

You, like everyone else, will get old and wrinkled some day too. Will you bewilling to just go ahead and die like you suggest for those old folks now?

Appearantly I mistook your statement as "Bush said he would but he didn't that's why it's still screwed". My bad if that's not the case.

And yeah, I get more than a little pissed when I work for a month to increase my company's revenues only to have some jerkoff come and take it all to continue delivering the exact same service he was already providing. I have the govt. to steal all my money, I don't need health insurance to join them.
