  •  "Average" life expectancy? (9+ / 0-)

    That includes people that are getting the best of care, who ARE living longer.

    The ones without health insurance, not so much.

    So, you want those that are doing without to be penalized because the ones that have are doing better? That's the bottom line here - the broken down people are being expected to do go without longer because the wealthy are doing better.

    Horrible. Really really horrible.

      Everyone will be mandated to buy health insurance, so you can't say that people won't be insured!  <--- This is what we'll be told - like it's a good thing.

      The problem is that if you can only afford junk insurance with a high deductible you won't use it, because you can't afford the deductible.  It'll be the same as being uninsured, except now you get to pay for the privilege.  

      I can't believe how screwed up this has gotten.

      you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows
