As to Obamacare, we in Europe are rather bewildered about all the junk we hear from the Naysayers. I live in Germany which has a system quite similar to Obamacare and it works wonderfully. Everybody has full health insurance and the prices are a percentage of your income. If you earn little, you pay little and if you earn a lot, you pay more but there is a cap on the costs. Nobody is refused health care here, irrespective of previous conditions and nobody goes bankrupt because they were ill - those are all traits of rip-off "capitalist medicine" that take as much money as they can and give you as little cover as they can get away with.
As I do not live in your country I have your say on how it works, I do know a lady who works for an insurance company here she went through all the bells and whistles with a family before Obamacare was to be installed. the family after going through all the credits or what ever they are called did not come up to the amount they had to have, they lacked like 2 credits.. they now have to pay more for their health care then they did before.. This helps who? from what I understood Obamacare was to save you money Not make you spend more to have what you already had. also I understood *WE* would be able to keep our doctors, but yet I am hearing of those who are having to leave a doctor from them not an email... they have had for yrs and trust to another one who was with some other insurance company's list. I know about this part as I was two days away from having an operation being done I was told I could not have it because I was not with a doctor on their list.
And part of my problem with it is the people who are suppose to be working for US signed a bill that NO ONE read they were bullied into signing it and no one read it to know what it said....I would rather see a couple bills a yr signed into law and know they were read then 100 and no one knowing what the heck they have signed.
Only time will tell how it will work out..all I do know from talking with the people who have to deal with it..it is not all it has been proclaimed to be.
