Comments on: Obamacare paradox in Florida The Newspaper for the Future of Miami Wed, 17 Sep 2014 00:04:42 +0000 hourly 1 By: russ soule Fri, 15 Aug 2014 23:24:53 +0000 what I find most laughable about all this self-congratulation is that not one of these liberals says who is actually PAYING for the new formerly uninsured under this program. 21 of Florida’s population is under Medicaid. Medicaid is a FEDERAL SUBSIDY PROGRAM that is paid by taxes on labor, yours and mine. Tax Credits under Obamacare are paid by the Income Tax on our already heavily taxed incomes. There has been absolutely NO reduction in the total cost of health insurance, just a shift in who pays for it – THE TAXPAYERS. as to how many have applied for another free benefit, why the heck is that a surprise? what is more surprising is how many HAVE NOT APPLIED for what appears to be a FREE something. Anyone who thinks this is actuarily maintainable is living in a dreamworld!

Health insurance should be like car insurance and should kick in when there are major problems. Can you imagine what an oil change would cost if it was covered under your auto insurance? You don’t bill your car insurance for oil changes or little scratches in your car’s paint job.

Also – unlike the gov website, auto insurance sites actually work! I pay $24/month for car insurance at Insurance Panda. With healthcare dot gov, it takes me hours to get an unaffordable BS rate. Who can afford $600/month insurance?

All in the plan. Problems at the end so more can say they tried but couldn’t so now anyone can get an extension, further helping enrollment numbers. Add this to the 38 changes made to the law since passage, the joke continues. But, it’s the law of the land and cannot be changed!

“’It doesn’t make sense,” he added. “It’s more of a political statement.’”

Another reason to vote Scott and his fellow Repugnicants out.
