Fallout from ObamaCare

Talked to a dentist friend of mine today. He recieved notice from the Invisalign people (clear braces) thathey will add $50 to their lab fees as a result of the medical equipment tax under ObamaCare. My kid is over 30 so it wont impact me but Doc said he will pass it on as a line item as an ObamaCare tax so his clients know why the prices are going up.

Forward!!!

Only rich peoples kids get braces so it is probably a good thing right?

Your making a case for a positive right though, not a basic right. But you're right, the rich have everything better. That's just an unavoidable fact of life.

I think a more accurate way of calling access to affordable healthcare, is one has a right to get it on their own—not at someone else's expense. That's just what liberty would allow. Liberty is a natural right at least here. The latter has never been a right. Unless one is a socialist. It intrudes on someone else's natural rights.

The market can and does do a better job of delivering affordable health care. Prices on hi tech eventually come down but not when the govt interferes attempting to make it affordable. That winds up driving up costs. If the govt takes over, then you just get poorer quality, waits and lines. That is not more access. People die in govt healthcare systems, socialist healthcare systems and market systems. There's no way of achieving a perfect system.

Invisalign is subject to the medical excise tax because the aligners are made overseas.

I agree, I would hate to see what our premiums would be if we were both under an insurance plan. No freaking way to be able to pay for it.


But listening to Liberals here, we have ObamaCare on the way to save us.

If those idiots only knew what coverage we get. If we seek other treatments above what ObamaCare will pay for it's so damn outrageous it makes you head spin.

My doctor told me last week not to expect getting anything fixed in this ObamaCare. That there would be so much red tape to go through with the current pre existing conditions it is really mind boggling plus the list would be very long. Having to prove I need the surgeries, why now when I have had some of these issues for 17 years. Could you get by if we alleviate the pain in a different way..... ( crap, drugs are not doing this now ). I want a quality life as well, being able to move without saying ****, ***of a **** and a few other choice words.

Just got my haircut and the gal who cuts my hair says (it's a national chain) that their insurance is going through the roof now, and that BC&BS said that unless it's 50% participation they are getting dropped or something like that. Not sure what IT is, but she said the bottom line is, they are going to be forced to buy their own health insurance.

'sall good.

The trick is how to pay for it. Sticking your fingers in your ears and repeating "_______________ should be a right for everyone" over and over doesn't really solve the problem of how to pay for it.

I say we just take all of the money from the rich people and give it to the poor people who deserve it. /liberals

My 14 year old is getting invisaligns over Christmas break. I'll probably dodge the obama penalty on that one. Two more boys behind him, don't know yet if they will need them but if so I'll look forward to obama adding to what is already a hefty bill.
Asshole in chief.

What are the horror stories? Seniors (w/ and w/o insurance) have Medicare, so it must be something related to Medigap Insurance policies?
