this astounds me. truly astounds me. how McCain and Palin can even think this is ok....
From the NY Times...an independent study was conducted concerning the McCain-Palin health care plan...this is some excerpts below
These are changes that will set in motion nothing less than the dismantling of the employer-based coverage that protects most American families. A study coming out Tuesday from scholars at Columbia, Harvard, Purdue and Michigan projects that 20 million Americans who have employment-based health insurance would lose it under the McCain plan.
For starters, the McCain health plan would treat employer-paid health benefits as income that employees would have to pay taxes on
The net effect of the plan, the study said, “almost certainly will be to increase family costs for medical care.”
Mr. Goodman, who helped craft Sen. John McCain's health care policy, said anyone with access to an emergency room effectively has insurance
Really Mr Goodman?? Really?? So instead of having insurance, people should go to the ER for medical care-get charged 4-5 times that of what they would pay in the doctors office, and then if they can't pay for it...depend on the hospital to write it off? or get sued for non-payment...or heck,lets just declare bankruptcy.
yup-that sounds like health insurance to me!
Brilliant plan. Truly brilliant.
just another scary man behind a mask as Scooby Doo would say
