Sen. Rand Paul should accept that insurance companies are in business to make money. In order to look out for consumers, you have to put everybody in the pool, including Congress. The bigger the pool, the cheaper the rates.
There could be a pool for everyone who makes minimum wage up to maybe $10 and for those who are not covered by employers. All employers with less than 50 workers could go into a pool. Employees who refuse coverage are fined what it would cost them for insurance.
No spending caps; children to age 26 on parents’ plans; no one denied covering for pre-existing conditions. Medicaid coverage should remain in place. No tax breaks for anyone. This is all about health care.
And you don’t get a break because you don’t get pregnant just like you don’t get a break because you are female and can’t get prostate cancer.
This is a heck of a good start and Paul, our senator, should listen to us.
