    I'm surprised it's only 72%
     
  4. According to the article 75% don't think insurance companies should be able to deny coverage to people with preexisting conditions, while 72% don't think insurance companies should be able to charge sick people more. I don't understand what the difference is though, as they're effectively the same thing. Hypothetically, an insurance company could charge someone $10,000 a month premiums and technically not deny coverage to him for having a preexisting condition; the company would just be charging a rate that the consumer was unwilling to pay.

    25% of people are either mentally retarded or hate the majority of their countrymen.

    America will never be MAGA unless these gullible morons stop voting against their interests and common sense.

    Its just leftist slander, we all know that Republicans AKA "True Americans" are the only ones that vote based on policy, while the evil marxist left only cares about race.

    That requires a working brain, though.

    I just crashed my car into a nice BMW. Both cars are a total loss.

    CAN I NOW BUY CAR INSURANCE FOR THIS PRE-EXISTING CONDITION?

    I feel like 72% of people don't understand what "insurance" means. Can I wait until I get cancer to start paying for insurance? I will save lots of money until I need it.

    Insurance is gambling. Insurance companies have to gamble that only certain amounts of people will have to cash out. Allowing automatic cash outs ruins the system.

    Allowing pre existing conditions literally destroys the concept of insurance.

    You're clearly of the mentally retarded variety so I can't even be mad.

    I hope you get the help you need.

    Lol I bet you thought that was a great argument in your head.

    Did you know people can be born with pre existing conditions? Did you know that you're legally required to already have car insurance? Did you know you should think a little more critically next time before making a dumb post?

    What exactly does that have to do with anything?

    I swear the left gets more dumb every single fucking day.

    What you people are talking about isn't insurance, it's national healthcare. You guys basically want to remove every function of the insurance industry and keep it private so that you can't be labelled socialist/communist. Insurance is about playing a game of calculated odds, socializing the cost of care according to risk. That is the point, without it "insurance" is just an extra pointless layer of administration.

    Fire insurance after your house burns down then, like it matters.

    There is absolutely 0 reason for anybody to buy insurance until they get sick if they can't turn you down or charge you more anyway. Then guess what happens to the cost when only sick people buy in?

    Good job, Corky. This is the reason there's an individual mandate.

    The logic is that if you don't want a job switch to be a death sentence, you gotta protect people with pre-existing conditions. But then you have to have a mandate (for the reason you very belatedly discovered). But then you have to have subsidies (and Medicaid expansion and cost-cutting, exchanges, etc.). The whole structure of the ACA flows from this.

    Since you're a great genius according to yourself, maybe you can explain how 75% want to keep preexisting condition protection, yet a majority oppose having a mandate. It's almost as if they just asked people whether they should be turned down with no mention of how that would be paid for. People don't answer no to getting free stuff, they answer no when they find out it isn't free. Obviously you'll take the side of leaches on every issue, but your super cool open border plan doesn't work if everyone who comes here is guaranteed medical coverage at the expense of everyone else.

    Pre-existing conditions arent just about the disease you are getting but complications.

    But you are correct and thats why the whole public healthcare debate is dishonest in the first place, the vast majority of Americans dont believe that sick people should find a ditch to die in like cats when they cant pay for medical services.

    So the vast majority of Americans already believe that HC is a right, but since the GOP is a master of BS tactics they have managed to twist it around into a fake debate where they can manipulate figures and talking points.
