The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!
...After years to prepare, Mr. Ryan finally unveiled what was supposedly the outline of a health care plan. It was basically a sick joke: flat tax credits, unrelated to income, that could be applied to the purchase of insurance....
Flat tax credits are an oxymoron, in more ways than one.
$5,638.75 is the amount of federal income tax paid by someone earning $50,000
per year. Even when Trump eliminates all federal taxes for those earning $50,000 or less
per year it will not pay for health insurance.
The Public Option which was to be included in the ACA was a striped down version
of any commercial policy. It had all the same preventive measures and would pick
up costs should there be a medical problem, but, it was not commercial insurance
at all. It was a method to find disease among Americans and end it.
The Republican health care cooperatives have failed. The health care savings
account is ridiculous. People are suppose to set aside monies they will need for
the year in an account that is tax free, but, if serious disease is found and needs
extensive medical intervention, where does the money come from?
Former Secretary John Kerry wanted to establish catastrophic health care plans.
That means one would have to figure in the cost of the catastrophic health care
plan into their health care savings account.
Catastrophic health plans (click here) cover the same minimum health benefits as other health plans under the Affordable Care Act, including preventive services, emergency services, prescription drugs, and more. The difference with a catastrophic plan is that you must pay for all health-care costs until you meet a high annual deductible. Only after your out-of-pocket spending reaches the deductible does your plan begins to pay for most covered health-care services.
