Who increases the cost of medical insurance?  and how?  How many ways do politicians increase the cost of health care?

 

Reckless spending by the insurance industry:

== contributions to political campaigns = irresponsible use of health care dollars

== obscene CEO wages and benefits

== golden parachutes

== commercial advertising

== big health care providers through over billing and fraud

== company limo's

== company jets

== spending $1.4 million a day to keep single payer at bay

== profiteers 

 

Every politician that accepts campaign money from any part of the health care industry IS increasing the cost of 

health insurance and health care!!!!

 

Let's not be stupid about this!!!!!

The U.S. health insurance system is typically characterized as a largely private-sector system, so it may come as a surprise that more than 60% of the $4 trillion annual U.S. health care bill is paid through taxes, according to an analysis.

 

Tax dollars pay for Medicare and Medicaid, for the Veterans Administration and the Indian Health Service. Tax dollars pay for health coverage for federal, state, and municipal government employees and their families, as well as for many employees of private companies working on government contracts.

 

Less visible but no less important, the tax deduction for employer-paid health insurance, along with other health care-related tax deductions, also represents a form of government spending on health care.

 

It makes little difference whether the government gives taxpayers (or their employers) a deduction for their health care spending, on the one hand, or collects their taxes then pays for their health care, either directly or via a voucher, on the other.

 

Moreover, tax dollars also pay for critical elements of the health care system apart from direct care—Medicare funds much of the expensive equipment hospitals use, for instance, along with all medical residencies.

 

Single Payer brings all costs under one umbrella thus demonstrating smart fiscal responsibility and efficient use of OUR tax dollars for OUR deserved benefit.

Let's not be stupid about this?  You make up a bunch of trigger words meant to infuriate as many gullible people as possible, without citing objective evidence that those things are going on and to what extent and where, and you end the post with "let's not be stupid about this?"

A multi trillion $$$$$ scam!!!

 

== 8 lobbyists per elected official = expensive mouthpieces

 

== Misinformation campaigns @ $1.4 million health care dollars a day

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/07/05/AR2009070502770.html

 

Yes folks we in America are being duped by the industry and some elected officials.

 

Next some extra added attractions:

 

== Healthy humans seldom spend what they pay out to the insurance industry!

 

== Consumers are charged billions in overcharges aka have you received your refund yet?

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/24/AR2009062401636.html

 

== Politicians as shareholders:

$32.6 TRILLION Dollars for 10 years is less than the government is paying out NOW for a small part of the population by a few trillion tax dollars.

 

Single Payer is no entitlement nor is it free ...... conservatives are reckless thinkers and have no respect for tax dollars. Either reckless or stupid and most likely are not paying for their own insurance = mooching off the employers.

 

Single Payer provides full coverage no matter what no deductible and no copays ........... employed or not and no matter where families live. The lions share of the population does not have full coverage as we speak in addition to paying deductibles and co pays.
