Re: Kerry health insurance plan questions

Kerry proposes that everyone have access to a pool.
The table you linked to seems to be for low deductible type plans, possibly part of the reason they are so costly. It seems sort of like a national version of state high risk pools such as offered by Minnesota. People with pre existing conditions would be able to get coverage under this system at affordable prices. It would probably make insurance more costly for those who are healthy, who can currently qualify for the best rates at private plans.

Re: Kerry health insurance plan questions

Every one of those family plans is more expensive than what I will be paying in 2005 for my current family plan. *So if this is Kerry's "fix" I will vote for Bush on this issue. *
When Clinton tried to be proactive in 1994 and fix the HealthCare Situation in America, it was met by a masterful campaign *by the insurance companies with the famous commericals of a 'Middle America' Couple that tried to convince the Populace that we were all in trouble if Healthcare were fixed.

The Insurance Companies backed off price increases that year and the following year because they were being watched.

Well here we are in 2004 and all the watching of price increases are gone and looky what we got! - I don't trust the GOP that is in bed with Corporate America. I'll be voting Democratic again! - It's a Slam Dunk!

Hello Cut-throat.............and you trust the Democrats?
I hope you are joking. If so, please add a smiley face in the future.
