Thanks Kobuk this is a comprehensive layout of Trump Care. I think
it shows it favors the rich over the poor and older people. It appears
there is some incentive for young people to get insurance with the
lower costs, but I have my doubts if many take advantage of it.. When
a person is young and healthy they don't think about getting sick much
I often wonder if those GOP congressmen were ever hungry or homeless
out on the street. I think some of them think."I started out with nothing
I did ok." Well people win the lottery too. The world is full of needy
people, and to ignore them invites crime and other huge epenses for
society. People who can't afford to see the doctor wait till they are almost
dead to go to an emergency room. There it costs society a lot more than
a few doctor visits would be.
The GOP and Trump are short sighted people wanting to save their rich
friends some taxes. To put desperately sick people to a hospital stay they
can't pay for, or die. With affordable health care these people can get
the care they need before it becomes very expensive to cure. Preventative
care saves millions in health care. This in turn saves us all money.
This idea of pulling your self up by your own boot straps is a good thing to
teach, since we want people to pay their own way, but to ignore those who
fall through he cracks is a bad idea and costs us all more in the end.
Keeping a crimminal in prison can cost $50,000.00 a year per person, and
their health care by the way. This doesn't include the cost of police, courts,
and other things that go along with the cost of crime. Granted there will
always be those who do bad things. Even Billionaires have been crimminals,
they often get by with it, but leaving people to their own devices to survive
just encourages it. Desperate people do bad things.
It's up to us all to help our law makers make desisions that benefit us all, not
just the rich, big business, and their friends.
