So why are the insurance companies so dead set against it? Because they know that it will be far less expensive, far better plan. Basically it comes down to this: They don’t want the competition!
Senator B: Well, Greta, I cannot argue with what Senator A has said. Perception is key. The shirt does appear to be blue, navy blue in fact, but it may not be.
health care reform is now teetering on the edge of total collapse. President Obama is already talking about trimming the plan way back to cover areas that both parties agree on. This means that at best we will see some weak plan that solves little or nothing. Alternatively, the entire bill may just collapse under its own immense weight and fall apart completely.
I don’t believe the Government is going to do anything. President Obama or whoever is sitting up there is not going to lift a finger to make these people leave. They say it is impossible to know where all of the illegals are, yet HR Block and other tax offices, handle thousands of ITIN’s each year. An ITIN is an identifying process for illegals that lets them work, file taxes and get a refund back. We sent those checks to local addresses, that are a part of a permanent record. We can’t find them? The irs did!
Many carriers in the Chicago Area, will exclude pre-existing conditions for twelve months or more. Aetna will not exclude those conditions if you have creditable coverage for at least 18 months. They either accept you or they do not. The first question I ask when someone tells me they have a medical condition is, “do you want to get them covered?”. Dealing with a broker can save you more time so you do not apply with a carrier to find out you have to wait 12 months, to use the coverage.
The stimulus plan is a huge failure. 9.5 percent unemployment with job loses of 467,000 in the month of June. So, officially we are out of 4.4 million jobs. How is the “create and or save jobs” working for you now sales man-in-chief?
As an investment advisor, I know first hand how hard it is to tell a client what they don’t want to hear. If it’s any consolation, this news didn’t start out as a lie. It has just become very hard to perpetuate in the current time period of which we live and work.
By 2009, PROFIT and POLITICS had become more important than People. Who really cares about the health of a nation when people take a back seat to politics and profit?
