You are a ****ign retarded idiot, jesus christ, how are you even allowed to ****ing vote?
and Ive got a news flash for you:
All of the rest of the people in the world smarter than you realize it is cheaper to insure people and get them preventative care than it is to fix them in emergency rooms every time they get sick...
You think those "30 million people" dont raise your health costs ANYWAY? Moron.
You are quite simply, a ****ing dumb ass.
Let me type slow for you here.
In a true apples to apples comparison you are close to being right. The more people you add to an existing pool paying the same amount for the same services there is a realistic chance premiums could be lowered. What you're looking for is single payer.
With Obamacare you don't have that. You've got millions of more people now getting the same services that don't pay the same amount. Millions of people will get insurance basically free or at a greatly subsidized price. With increased services for all, including kids insured until they are 26, birth control, no caps, etc. The people that will be paying that subsidy are the rest of us.
For every study you show that states premiums will be reduced I can find another saying they will be increased. It already happened in California. If you're buying individual health insurance in California Obamacare could cost your premiums to rise 64-146%.
In my case where I have a company group plan, the mandated 'benefits' don't come free. My costs have no choice but go up.
