Hope Springs Eternaleven After Obamacare Has passed-winavi

Politics In case youre wondering, Im not a fan of Obamacare. Even though its gone through, Im still the eternal optimist. Heres why. Some of you may remember over 10 years ago, Congress pushed through a tax that was referred to as the Medicare Sur-Tax. It affected people who were already receiving Medicare benefits and whose incomes were above a certain threshold amount the number escapes me right now but basically it was going to tax any retiree who had done a decent job of saving and accumulating a nice nest egg. Nobody really understood the impact of this tax until after the tax law had gone into effect. When people started to realize what the effect was, the Congressman who was the sponsor of the bill, a guy named Dan Rostenkowski, couldnt go anywhere in public or private without a huge crowd of retirees showing up and very vocally shared their thoughts on this tax law. And their thoughts were not kind to say the least. Most of the time the Senator couldnt go out in public without bodyguards. He actually had to wear a flak jacket, it got so bad. But heres the good part. In less than 90 days that tax law got repealed. Its amazing what can happen when the public outcry is vocal and significant. So, Im still hopeful that once the average American understands the impact Obamacare has on them, the nitwits in Washington will have a change of heart and modify things to get it closer to something that makes sense. Or better yet, theyll let their voices be heard in the upcoming November elections. Dont get me wrong, I agree that we need to reform the health care system; I just dont like the idea of a government health care system. I wonder why we dont just allow the free market system to take effect. In my opinion, the health care system is different than almost any other commerce that goes on in America today because you rarely know what the true cost of anything is and there is little incentive for us to pay attention or care that much. Where else do you buy anything where you arent aware of the cost? If youre going to buy a car, you know what the car is going to cost before you buy the car. When you go to the grocery store, you at least have an idea of what your bill is going to be before you go through the checkout line. That doesnt exist in our current health care system. Part of the reason is because you and I as consumers dont have easy access to this information and arent motivated to get it, because our perception of cost is whatever our co-payment and deductable is. I think the simple solution is to let people know and understand what the actual health care costs are. Why not just let you and I fill out our health insurance forms? After all, we fill out our own auto or homeowner insurance claim forms. When a bunch of people see what theyre actually being charged for and start complaining, companies take note things change including simple to file claim forms because they have to satisfy the customer, or the customer goes somewhere else. Well today in healthcare, you and I as health care recipients arent really the customer. The customer is the insurance company. So the doctors and hospitals have to keep the insurance companies happy. This just isnt right! If you and I were responsible for filling out our own claim forms, wed have a better understanding of the true cost of our own healthcare. Which would probably lead to lots of tough questions (and complaints). Which would lead to better pricing and service. The bottom line is, I think the free market enterprise system that America has in place is the greatest economic system in the world. It will work miracles for our healthcare woes if we and our government will let it.
