Obamacare: More unpopular than Bloomberg’s soda ban!

June 7, 2012

I rubbed my eyes with disbelief when I saw this in the Old York Times:

More than two-thirds of Americans hope the Supreme Court will overturn some or all of the 2010 health care law, according to a new poll conducted by The New York Times and CBS News. Just 24 percent said they hoped the court “would keep the entire health care law in place.”


More than 70 percent of independent voters said they wanted to see some or all of the law struck down, with a majority saying they hoped to see the whole law overturned. Twenty-two percent of independents said they hoped the entire law would survive.

Bloomberg’s soda ban comes in at 65-24 opposition, which means Obamacare, at 68-24 opposition, is more unpopular than the staggeringly unpopular soda ban!

    As someone who has just gone through the hell of Insurance companies trying to wiggle out of their obligations when a real illness occurs, I can only say that we ABSOLUTELY NEED OBAMACARE! The Insurance companies price you out of the ability to pay for insurance once you have had a real illness. And as was the case with United Oxford healthcare, they then say, well “we cover Cancer, but we don’t cover Chemo. Even if it’s in your book. Your book is not the correct book!” I’m not kidding. Then the hoops and whistles I had to perform to find new insurance while recovering from a double mastectomy would make a circus dog proud. And let’s talk about the cost to the system when someone like me gets sick and doesn’t have insurance…one treatment of the chemo anti-body blocking drug Herceptin…$ 25,000. And
    $ 3,000 to administer it. Times that by 25 treatments and you have yourself bankruptcy. But the hospital picks up the tab. So, everyone must have insurance, make it affordable with government subsidies to the poor. But you are required to have insurance to drive a car. And let’s face it, whether we like it or not, we will at some point in our lives use the health care services and it is wrong to sponge off of those who have insurance. Where do you think all those extra costs go? To the increased cost for those who are insured who then have to pay higher costs for treatment that factors in the costs to the hospital for the uninsured, and then gets translated into higher and higher premiums.

    if i wreck my car, and only have liability coverage, i don’t get a new car. i can’t wait until the car is wrecked, and then tell the insurance company i want to pay them $500 so they can buy me a brand new one…… it is called insurance.

    Ginger, i do feel empathy for you…. but when you know you have an expense… you are looking for financial assistance…. not medical “insurance.” for it to be insurance, you have to get it before you know you need it…. and that is the fundamental flaw in Obama-care. you want to expand assistance programs, that is one thing…… but all the “examples” Ive seen would classify as insurance fraud under any other context. the lie of this law is that it is not the only way to help people like you.

    Sometimes we make an emotional decision of buying a home.
    A line of credit HELOC and second mortgages to fund important purchases or investments.

    In addition, the property should be protected by ING’s Houseowners Insurance. If you are a homeowner, this can be a tax-efficient way of accessing funds over the short term.
