How many people have signed up for health insurance in VA? Who knows? «

"Many families who are uninsured are middle-class."

The ACA -- aka OBAMACARE -- is a 900 page document. Do you think anyone has read it? How many pages are in the Bible... around 1900 pages? So, if you are uninsured for medical expenses, you should read the ACA, eh? If you are a sinner maybe you should read the Bible.

If one reads 100 pages a day, about 100 minutes or so, that is 9 days to read the ACA document. Chances are that one will not fully understand the document on his or her first read through.

How many people have signed up for health insurance in VA? Who knows? « "Numbers on Obamacare enrollment have been scarce — partly because of the slew of technical problems with Robert Gibbs, former press secretary to President Obama, said in a recent interview with MSNBC the first two weeks of open enrollment were “bungled badly” and “excruciatingly embarrassing for the White House and for the Department of Health and Human Services.” Industry analyst Bob Laszewski surveyed health plans last week, reporting that no more than 5,000 individuals and families have signed up for health insurance through"

From an article in 2001 we see the building argument for government regulation of healthcare and phasing out of Free Ridership:

" ... Although it is common to think of the uninsured as having low-incomes, many families who lack insurance are solidly middle class ... . And the largest increase in the number of uninsured in recent years has occurred among higher-income families:
  • About one in seven uninsured persons lives in a family with an income between $50,000 and $75,000, and almost one in six earns more than $75,000.
  • Further, between 1993 and 1999, the number of uninsured increased by 53 percent in households earning between $50,000 to $75,000 and by 85 percent among households earning $75,000 or more.
  • By contrast, in households earning less than $50,000 the number of uninsured decreased approximately 5 percent.
More information about middle-class families who are voluntarily uninsured emerged from a recent California survey of the uninsured with incomes of more than 200 percent of poverty:2
  • Forty percent owned their own homes and more than half owned a personal computer.
  • Twenty percent worked for an employer that offered health benefits, but half of them (10 percent of the total) declined coverage for which they were eligible.
  • However, this group was not opposed to insurance in general, as 90 percent had purchased auto, home or life insurance in the past.
  • About 43 percent felt that health insurance was not a good value for the money, and rising insurance premiums will only increase this number. (Monday, April 30, 2001

Before ACA/ObamaCare I couldn't afford medical expenses. I spent many years in my youth without medical coverage. With kids of my own now, I pay a stiff monthly premium to Blue Cross/ Blue Shield for coverage that has a hefty copay setup. I am being nickel'd and dime'd to death.

Now, after ACA/ObamaCare I still cannot afford hefty medical expenses. Some of my "old age" pills I need would take all my income every month. So without the wonky healthcare insurance, I have through work, we exist above poverty level, and can visit a family doctor, when we find a competent one.

Health Care in the USA is dodgy.
