Republican Version of Health Care?
April 23, 2011 Leave a comment
Well Arizona Republicans are unveiling their version of a health care plan to us poor citizens.
Rep. Kate Brophy McGee, R-Phoenix, said that SB 1593 eliminates existing laws which require that companies that want to sell their insurance to Arizona residents be licensed and regulated by the state Department of Insurance. They say the increased competition will provide more opportunities for Arizonans to get the coverage they want at a price they can afford. I’m sure nothing could go wrong there. 😦
Ms. Kate Brophy McGee said that is good news for those who don’t want or need that kind of coverage and the costs entailed. Conversely, those who want coverage for specific conditions can shop for a policy which includes that. The bad news is of course that unregulated non-licensed companies will be free to do whatever they want and run their business in a shady manner and the poor insured people will be screwed many times over…again. Part of the Republican agenda is to unregulate most all businesses.
Also to be considered is that the legislation wipes out more than two dozen mandates for what conditions must be covered for policies issued in Arizona. These range from chiropractic care and breast reconstruction to even how much time a woman would be allowed to remain in the hospital following child birth. And let’s not forget that unregulated private insurers would be free to dis-allow anything they want. It would be much worse than the present day system where you often have to get a lawyer to make them pay up for many illnesses.
The Republicans are destroying the middle class in America and the above is just one more way they are f*cking over us. We Democrats are helping to put these clowns in office…we have to get off our duffs and vote in ALL elections. Set up rides for older voters, do the neighborhood walk door-to-door, volunteer to help your party. Lets make the coming elections a shutout for Republicans.
Remember, in the 2012 presidential elections the Republicans will probably front a evangelical fundamentalist religious candidate such as Romney or Huckabee…we really don’t want 4 or 8 years with a religious fundamentalist leader again…George Bush was bad enough and he was an idiot. Romney and Huckabee are very smart and they DO have an agenda they will not speak of.
