I don't want any involuntary transfer of funds from one person to another. We all call that theft in any other context. I don't think society is benefited by involuntary transfers of money, goods, or services from one person to another. Politics destroy people's moral sense. Where you would never think to grab some strangers money, politics makes it palatable to steal using the government as the middle man. Which is another problem with the single payer--we are switching from one middle man (insurance companies) to another middle man, namely government. Wrong on both counts. I did. 1. ACA allows young Americans to stay on their parents’ insurance plans The first point is interesting--it infantalizes adults. Not what I want in a society. Interestingly, between the ages of 18 and 45, I saw an MD once. In fact, most of my male friends were the same. The females went for their pap smears, that was about it. And what if your parents don't have coverage? Then oh well, there you go, falling between the cracks. 2. ACA bans insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions which raises premiums for everyone, directly contradicting the claims of lower costs. The money for those subsidies comes from the rest of us, those who pay taxes. 3. ACA offers tax credits to small businesses to buy insurance great!. More IRS in our lives. Yep, that's gonna help, I'm sure. Again, this is a transfer of funds from the person who earned it to people who didn't. 4. ACA requires companies with more than 50 employees to provide health insurance And we've seen how the companies are reacting to that-no more full time jobs and companies will be incentivized to stay under the cap. Yep, that'll help the economy grind to a halt. 5. ACA provides subsidies to help individuals afford coverage Again, more IRS, and more theft from one person to another. Those subsidies will help raise the price of ACA. THat is what happens when 'free' money is being used to solve problems. If the government were to simply go away, health care would be affordable. A catastrophic insurance plan is cheap. Cover things like cancer and heart attacks, and let people take care of themselves. That's what individual responsibility is, taking care of yourself, and insuring against the unexpected. I was reading about new medical boutiques shops, $100 a month, and you are covered for anything that can be done in a doctor's office. Add a catastrophic insurance package, and the problem is solved without ACA.
