Rationing Right Wingers Can Believe In

Quote:
. Thirty percent of Americans now skip some medical care


This isn't really new news, but the "repeal"-waggers would do well to remember how high the numbers have gotten:
About three in ten of all Americans forgo getting medical treatment due to the high costs of U.S. health care, according to a new survey by Gallup. Unsurprisingly, the issue is even worse among people who don’t have access to health insurance. Three in five uninsured Americans skip out on care over cost concerns.
Americans pay significantly more out of their own pockets for medical care than residents of all other affluent nations, and correspondingly put off treatment at much higher rates than people in other wealthy countries.

To say only three in five uninsured Americans skip care because of the price seems low; I would assume that means the other two in five were blessed with no health problems to be treated.
If health care reform can get the overall numbers down, it would be a godsend to both individual Americans and the wider economy. If not, we have to try again. As for the high-uninsured states that have opted out of doing anything to help their citizens because it would make certain politicians sad, I can only hope those politicians are a lot sadder after their constituents figure out just how damaging the opt-outs are going to be.

Once you break outside the confines of left wing blogs, you discover that only 44% of uninsured said they will buy Obamacare, and that was before they will see the price and out of pocket expense.

Avoiding doctors is actually a good thing most of the time. The cure is often worse than the problem. That includes flu shots, which should be avoided by the vast majority.

Such an arrogant attitude with others health is exactly what the ACA was designed to remedy.

I have to think that those people with $12K deductables would be putting off health care for the same reason.

Who are they? Have you got any statements and evidence that backs that up?

I have read many articles stating the high deductables. Many of them have been posted in the many threads regarding Obamacare. It's not my fault you don't want to believe it.

Much of this is simply more fear mongering from the right and until I have actual evidence of people who are in fact paying more or their deductables are that high, I will take it from whence it comes. I believe what is real and not rumored or manufactured to scare people into not doing what is good for them and for the country.
Thanks from Camelot
