Times/CBS Poll: 68% Against Obamacare

Evil 1 2012/06/08 17:45:59
Some 68 percent of Americans hope the Supreme Court will strike down all or part of President Barack Obama’s health care law, while just 24 percent hope the high court will uphold Obamacare, according to a New York Times/CBS News poll.

The poll results, reported in The New York Times’ The Caucus blog, come as the nation awaits the court’s ruling, expected before the end of the month. The court heard six hours of arguments on the law in March.

    According to the CIA World Fact Book, the U.S. spends 300-400% of the developed world average on healthcare per capita yet ranks 50th in life expectancy.

    So, if you get your wish and the Supremes kick it out, we will revert back to SOCIALIZED Medicine , which we currently have. What else? Healthcare will continue to vastly outstrip inflation, making it increasingly expensive for everyone. Only the best jobs will offer anything approaching full coverage (about 65% of the people that declare bankruptcy due to medical costs had some form of medical insurance). The number of people uninsured in the country will skyrocket. The wait times at ERs at public hospitals will skyrocket (it's always over 12 hours at the one closest to me, sometimes over 24 hours). Enrollment in Medicaid will skyrocket, putting further pressure on federal and state budgets.

    So, we will be back to Square One, with even more uninsured, and with higher premiums/co pays, and absolutely no guarantee that you will get care even with your expensive policy that will take 1/3 of your paycheck each month.

    That is pure unadulterated BS. That's all that can be said in response to that heap of 'Fecal Bovine Matter'. And your BS has what bearing on the fact that 68% of the people in this country have come to the realization that the healthcare bill that was shoved down our throats is worthless and will destroy this country financially in the next 10 years. And we in the US were being treated under Socialized medicine. That statement is just funny in and of itself.

    You are stuck on " Fecal Bovine Fecal Matter". You use that term often. Got some sort of fettish maybe about having ....?

    It's not BS. In your tiny world, anything that you disgaree with is always BS. You clearly have no idea about socialized medicine because that is precisely what we have today. Are you so daft that you do not realize that anyone who shows up at the ER is , by law, entitled to care? Who do you think pays for all that " free" care? WHO?
    Time to get a clue. The cost of all that uncompensated care is shared by all who have insurance. That is SOCIALIZED MEDICINE.

    When the shoe fits..... and in the case of your posts it fits perfectly. And anything that I disagree with that is BS is in all reality BS. No matter how much you try to make believe it isn't it still smells. As for anyone showing up that deserves care (unless they are directed illegally to another facility like Michelle Obama did in her last job) thery are paid for by those who are covered and pay their bills. A major reason that health insurance is through the roof. I have a clue, it is you that is clueless as to socilaize medicine.

    Wrong. LOL !! You actually believe that everyone who is uninsured shows up at an emergency ward pays their bill? Are you that naive? The costs of the uninsured are passed on to the insured through higher premiums and co pays. Have you not noticed your insurance going up in the past years? Why do you suppose that is?

    Chew on this (ASPE Research )... "On average, uninsured families can only afford to pay in full for about 12% of the admissions to hospital they might experience. Even uninsured families with incomes above 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) can afford to pay in full for only 37% of their hospitalizations.

    And from that same research... "In these cases, the uncompensated care costs must be absorbed by providers or shifted to other payers, including Federal, State, and local governments, and private insurers. Prior research examining the magnitude of uncompensated care costs estimates that the uninsured used in the range of $56 to $73 billion dollars of health care that they did not pay for in 2010."

    I never said that everyone who shows up at an ER pays their bill. Try reading my response if your capable. You have no concept of wat Socialized medicine is. In fact you have no concept of reality. Now I understand how Obama got elected and it wasn't by intelligent, well informed voters. And you are proof of that.
