short healthcare stocks?
If you believe Obamacare was bad for insurance companies or health care providers go ahead. Enough other investors may agree with you to actually drive down prices for a while.

however insurance companies and health care providers are both happy with the ACA, so any loss isn't going to last. Groups that were actually harmed by the failure are pharma and devices, both of which are heavily taxed under the ACA. Insurance companies are also taxed heavily, but they gained 20 million new customers under Obamacare and that more than offsets their higher taxes. So your strategy might work short term but it should correct really quickly. Because ignoring politics, insurers and health care just got a major financial win.

The main reason america's healthcare system is so fucked up is because it's NOT free market.

whereismyname

The reason the repeal failed is because Obamacare is working much better than conservatives pretend.

we've got 24,000,000 more people covered, Federal health spending is down, and insurance prices are stable across the board no matter what your age or disability.

denying these facts doesn't work. The GOP knows this. They aren't going to repeal, they want to improve. Which for over 3/4ths of them means expand coverage, not reduce it.

Why are you delusional people still on this board?

Healthcare is far more expensive than it ever was.
You would know that if you actually learned history and read the image I posted.

Do you enjoy high healthcare prices and a severe lack of medical innovation?
Do you enjoy dying early?

Kill yourself luddite.

we've got 24,000,000 more people covered
Because you forced them to? Most of them didn't even need the coverage.
Also if we had a free market health insurance would be a small part of the market and people would purchase inexpensive healthcare out of pocket.

We should at least go to rand paul's HSA system. We would be like Singapore where virtually everyone can afford inexpensive healthcare.

Lord_Tryzalot

Because you forced them to?
Most of them got free coverage under the Medicaid expansion.

The problem is a lot of those people vote conservative. And they're not going to once they lose their insurance. And politicians know this.

so your personal feelings aside, and your views of how things should work- the reality is the GOP isn't going to do what conservatives ask them to because conservatives will fire them for it.

I'm guessing you've never actually been to or lived in Singapore?

Singapore is a nanny state socialist country run by a benevolent dictator where even farting can land you a $1000 fine. Their government spends way more than the US does on healthcare and education. The only reason they're rich is because Singapore gets a ton of foreign investment thanks to their low corporate taxes.

If you're going to argue, atleast get your facts right, drumpfling.

I'm torn on this.

I work for government. People think I get awesome health care for free. They're fucking wrong.

My first pay stub, 10 years ago, shows $500/month and I didn't pay a dime. No copays and I don't think deductibles were worth mentioning. This was the middle plan...not the cheap one, not the expensive one.

My last pay stub? $1250 per month out of which I pay $325. Copays just doubled over last year, deductibles are high, and there are all sorts of limits to everything. I can't even have my own doctor do a blood test. And this is the cheapest plan, after the "discount" for doing a blood test that I had avoided because I hate blood tests. otherwise my bill would be DOUBLE ($600).

Now, I had a brief stint in the private sector in 2014 (long story). The cheapest insurance plan I could find, and I didn't qualify for any help, was $400 per month, all on me, with similar limitations as my current plan.

So the thing is, while cuckservatives cried about union cadillac plans (I'm not union so don't even go there), those plans were SUBSIDIZING everybody else. And even while insurers sucked employers like GM and state/federal government dry, they still jacked rates like crazy.

At the same time, anybody who believed loosening any imaginary restrictions on insurance companies or coddling them with more certainty/handouts was going to lower prices or improve care has a fucking hole in their head.

TalkBomber
TalkBomber

Like Trump, I really hate the media. The local papers and their websites are full of angry cuckservatives who want government employees, from file clerks and janitors to IT and lawyers, to make minimum wage. This is because their small minds think "government" is a single job like bank teller or roofer.

They're massively butthurt about pensions and how pensions are the only cause for deficits. The reality is, in my state, none of the state's money was paid into pensions for over a decade. Yet, somehow, there were still deficits. So these people who think paying nothing is such a burden also think paying nothing will relieve the burden of paying nothing. Math is clearly not their strong suit.

Every time I write in to explain the math of pensions or insurance, it never gets published. I can't be the only one who has tried. Yet they'll print bible verses, contorted to support anything from Trump as the anti-christ to how gay chefs destroyed the space program, every single week. It's a retarded circus.

free healthcare
How do the employees in your healthcare system survive on a salary of $0? That's awfully good of them to donate all of their time for nothing in return. Who's donating all the free medical supplies and equipment? That'd be kick ass if we could get something like that going on over here.

whereismyname
whereismyname

Well, they tend to survive on appropriate salaries. Decent doctors receive as much as decent engineers with some career, nurses receive around the same as teachers, and janitors/desk workers receive the same as janitors/desk workers around other state ruled entities, like schools. I wouldn't call it 0$, or a bad deal either.
Then again, donations are for charity, and charity doesn't rule a country. The government does. So, the government pays for it all. And we pay the government. I always thought that the state's main principle regarding people was "the best for the most", and as long as that is indeed your driving force, it works.

This isn't the glorious motherland, and it also isn't the UAE. Yet it works.

Anyways, have we transcended into /pol/ yet?

You already pay. Medicare, medicaid, they exist.

The argument is to lower health care costs overall which would, among other things, reduce the amount of money you have to pay for other people.

20 million new customers

Do you understand how the insurance market works? Obamacare requires insurers to cover more things than they would've and these customers have been a huge net drag on these companies. Take, for instance, UnitedHealth (UNH).

UNH got 1 million customers through Obamacare whose premiums contribute $4 billion in revenue. But the higher costs of providing care to these people caused them to lose hundreds of millions on this plan and spurred them to exit the insurance exchanges except in a small number of states where they could turn a profit.

Minimum care requirements also eat into their operating margin. At 4.9% (currently), that $4 billion should've given them $196 million in operating earnings.

UNH pays $1.8 billion in the health insurance tax (of the $11.3 billion total) and has an effective corporate income tax of 40.3%.

The only sections of Obamacare that remotely benefit UNH are those pertaining to Medicare and Medicaid.

which is not coincidentally where most of those 20+ million ended up.

the most expensive customers wound up in federally funded health care. But because of the taxes they still booked a net financial gain for the feds despite this enormous new cost.

The reality is that most businesses are snowflakes. They need to government to coddle them, look the other way, or both and they take about as much responsibility as negroid "fathers." Despite lying through your teeth and shitting all over the place while others clean up after you, 95% of businesses still fail. So, yeah, you're fucking cucks. The problem isn't our government, it's weak, spoiled, ignorant, little brats who think wearing a suit is a super power that entitles them to rewards far beyond their meager, at best, productivity.
