I was referring to a healthy young person who doesn't go to the hospital. There is no incentive to sign up if they are going to pay for routine care because they won't meet the deductible. so then you are comparing the penalty to the yearly cost of the plan and they will choose the penalty. The system is basically reversed when it comes to insurance which is based on risk. ACA is based on bringing in a lot of money from healthy people to pay for sick people. If those healthy people don't buy in then the whole plan falls apart.
A couple of points:
It's funny how ACA wasn't a tax until they needed it to be a tax for the supreme court to approve it and to delay parts of it.
As noted here by several people the cheap policies are the high deductible catastrophe policies. If you are a young healthy person why would you pay for a policy that you will be paying all your medical expenses anyway when you can just pay the penalty? And if you get sick you can't be denied for a pre-existing condition so you can get a policy then.
All I keep hearing is they need to pass a clean CR as if that is a solution. All it does it continue the wasteful spending and increasing debt that we have now. What happened to the government passing budgets?
I'm not saying it would be bad or good because I don't have enough information but I will say this. I will say that you have completely left out the other side of the equation. You listed all the money that comes back from the federal government but you ignored the money that goes to the federal government? We would not be sending that to the the feds anymore.
Point #2 for Wood County does not make sense. It is true that it is difficult to remove people from the voter rolls but this has a reverse effect. When people complain about people not voting part of it is due to the fact there are people on the voter roll who are no longer valid because they died or moved. Because of this the percentage of those who voted would be higher not lower. I guess at this point I should call you a jerkoff or asshole since that is what you like to call everyone else.
How ironic that someone would write such an obscenity filled hateful piece complete with name calling about others hatred.
