  •  trying to dump dumb-shits (6+ / 0-)

    Insurance companies used to laugh at the dumb-shits who used to buy these crap policies but now that they can't sell them anymore they don't want these dumb-shits around.
    Of course they are so dumb that they never knew they were buying crap and thanks to dumb luck never had to find out, but now they are moanin & gronin about losing their good-deal health insurance.

    •  I guess that I'm (0+ / 0-)

      one of your "dumb-shits" because my policy is getting cancelled.

      Of course, I am young, healthy, and my income fluctuates greatly, which means that I don't feel comfortable with a more expensive policy, but I also wanted something for catastrophic coverage so that my family would not lose their life savings if something really bad happened to me.

      Shame on me for being such a dumb-shit.

        your "Catastrophic" insurance didn't cover regular vision, dental, and doctor's visits did it?

        Nor did they have to pay you back if they didn't spend at least 80% of your premiums for your care.

        •  nope. (0+ / 0-)

          BECAUSE IT WAD CHEAPER FOR ME TO NOT PAY EVERY MONTH FOR THAT.

          If I Had wanted to pay more every month for that, I would have. Telling me that I will get betyer coverage if I now pay more is not an answer for the fact that I have determined that it makes sense for me to have worse coverage for less money gven my situation.  

          You are saying I'm an idiot because I don't want to spend in extra premiums for just a few months what I wouod spend out of pocket in a few years.

            When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.

            on your health care you get reimbursed.

            I didn't call you an idiot.

            But it sure sounds like you think you're immortal.

    •  Blaming the victims for being scammed? (0+ / 0-)

      I'm sure you know all about their individual pre-existing conditions, incomes, and personal circumstances, as well all of the legal loopholes the insurance agents and companies with armies of lawyers used, to make this careful determination. (Why yes, I do think your comment was nasty and pointed the finger the wrong way.)
