    #8 i dont agree with the government meddling i my life, that includes taxes. As an expat, income under 77k is not taxed. I do not live there, and I want none of my cash to be flushed down the DC toilet. I pay for me - no one else. I expect the government to attempt to keep bilking me at every turn for largess that I do not enjoy and entitlements for which I don't, have never and will never qualify for.

    #7 That's you distribute risk. The idea was single payer, so, everyone was insured and the risk lower, but Obama cave taking the public option and the GOP betrayed him. The idea of the private sector is to maximize profits, so your model is valid under that condition, but health is a public matter, not the object of profits, that's where the government, the main risk manager, enters. In a state like CT, every person is fully covered, private of public as the state accepted the fed funds. In Fl you get into the gap, your are fucked., you can die. I almost did when I had to stop working due complications from a diabetes I did not know I had. I got into the gap and I could not afford paying money, I almost got ruined. I came to CT to visit a brother and had to go to a hospital, immediately I got insured and from 30 days to live , I am alive 3 years later. While lived in Europe never had a problem. In my own country, however, people like you, prefer to feed some people than having a system where everyone has protection. BTW, in CT if you suddenly make a lot of money, you start to repay your benefits, is not a hand out.I started to pay mine. Your vision is retrograde and quite immoral. Why the fuck I pay taxes for? To make rich some people?

    Appropriate risk mitigation means hard rating and exclusions for certain pre-exist conditions, Cancer being the most glaring - "Depression" and its boondoogle of cousins that gst a joy pill from Big Pharma would be another. It's called a moral hazard / adverse selection and ObamaCare was built upon a whole host of them

    #3 forced guaranteed acceptance with no risk mitigation is not "Insurance" in any definition of the word or function concept in the industry. At best it is an expansion of an already broken entitlement program (Medicaid) at worse it is a Red Soviet Cancer in the vane of N.E.P. and forced government production with compelled consumption. A model that has proven to fail - hard.

    GQ should stick to fashion. Their idiocy for the market sector is glaring. Insurance is, and has always been, ' Tying benefits (payouts, dividends, ammoratization) based on age & has been practice sine the first life policies and nearly all subsequent health polices - that the idiots creating the PPACA have carved out gender as well as a risk matrix mitigation for underwriting shows complete lack of comprehension of reality or policy performances. PS A true Ayn Rand solution would sack Ryan's alternative as well - as the Government doesn't belong in health care at all. And before 1964 - they weren't.

    How do you Solve a Problem Like Health-Care?

    * Hint - it is NOT from an administrative, political, advisory board / committee / agency / bureaucracy from a distant national capital with legislation and taxation.

    Health-Care is individual, personal and uniquely specific in nature that it should not be in the realm of government to dictate, mandate nor penalize. Your health starts with what you primarily for exercise, nutrition, hydration and rest.

    * yes - a whole host of you have severe medical issues that are beyond what preventative holistic measures can navigate on your own. That 20% of high claim / instance / entitlement is well known, well documented - that is the population that needs the critical eye - and at first strike: fraud, crime, nepotism and cronyism .

    Killing Obamacare .... Will Leave 30 Million Uninsured.

    ..... according to Vox

    ..... except that there are currently already 30 Million that are not covered -

    There will still not be universal coverage under the current reform; recent projections are that 30 million Americans will still lack coverage by 2016.
    There will be significant gaps in coverage in states that opt not to expand Medicaid eligibility, potentially leaving 6 million uninsured nonelderly adults without access to care specifically because of lack of expansion. In addition, undocumented residents and those who opt to not purchase coverage will also add to the coverage gaps.

In 2012, when Obama was re-elected, I mailed a BRICK to the White House with predictions of how the PPACA would fail and why ( I called it the Red Soviet Menace that it was - blatant Lenin Plagairism ) .....I didn't get any facetime with Obama, but I did get a "polite conversation" with the Secret Service. After January 20th, I get the feeling I will have to take another unorthodox approach to get my message across. It is time to Remove, Erase, Destroy the Red Soviet idiom of ObamaCare.

    Thank you, Brian. My point was not that life insurance pays loss OF wages (for example, like workers' compensation does for an injured employee). The life insurance benefits can supplant some of the money that was coming into the household that was earned by the insured. while alive. What the beneficiary does with it is up to him/her. As long as the policy is in force at the time of death, it applies to both whole life and term.
    Brian McKenzie
    01/01/2017 #1 Brian McKenzie
    * Not all Life Insurance will pay loss of wages, typically this is a Supplemental Lines Policy, either written as a rider or a stand alone entity - Aflac being the most famous and well represented in this channel. ONLY Life policies that accrue cash value and allow for 'policy loans' can be used for payments while you are still alive. Everything else, you gotta die so someone else can collect. Laws vary from state to state, but Life policies are pretty set in their benefits nationwide. Consult a licensed Agent / Broker / Principal and ask them the hard questions relevant to your own personal estate, health, financial needs. Life Policies are indeed worth the investigation and investment.

    Prior to the PPACA ObamaCare Legislation, The US Federal Government has had national health care models alive – but they were not active across the entire population and instead only focused on small fractions of the population as a whole. Those models were Medicare, Medicaid, Veteran's Affairs, Prison Health Care, Tribal Health Care and Social Security Disability. Six proven incidences of performance and precedence that have decades of evidence of how a Nation-Wide launch of a 'Universal Care' - would fail.

    Each of these six models has failed to achieve in the avenues of innovation, affordability and quality – and each is riddled with their flagrant cases of fraud and patient pool performances. Had the politicians and academics pushing the Universal Care / Single Payer models – the PPACA never should have left the drawing board and echo chambers that they were created in.

    The PPACA ObamaCare bill was passed on March 31, 2010. In his run up to his Election – Barack Obama called for a Health Care Hit-Man as a main component to his push for Reform to America's health-care architecture. I will admit that the concept of being well informed in the major concepts, the minute minutia of policies and being able to push through bureaucracy roadblocks that stand in the way patients getting care is a grand idea. However, I doubt President Obama had counted on many taking up that challenge. I read all of the Reform Policies & Proposals before they became the bill, and the entire text of the Legislation once it became law. In the spring of 2009, I entered into a Masters of Public Administration Course majoring in HealthCare Economics and Business Management.

    In 2011, I graduated and immediately set to fighting the content, intent and trajectory of the Legislation. I worked with local patients to push through the bureaucracy to get care, payment and treatment that they needed. I branded my consulting and tactics as “Health Care Hit-Man” and was a sledgehammer for getting results for my clients. My efforts were focused across five channels of Veteran's Care, Tribal Care, Small Clinic Collections, High Dollar Audit for Insurance Companies and Audit Functions for Washington State in Health Care & Disability.

    My Master's Thesis was the Analysis & Development of Patient Centered, Market Directed and Self-Funded. A platform that models the best of mobile technologies for retail practices and brings into alignment the realities of price transparency and digital payments. One of the major components of this platform is Direct Primary Care / Concierge Medical and capitalizes on paying only for services that you need and not the ever escalating prices for monthly premium payments. Enrollment & Coverage in a National Entitlement does not equal Care.

    I have launched those models overseas – they have 5 years of precedence and performance.

    The three solutions to removing ObamaCare from Day 1, No Delay.

    1) Peri-Locative Solutions: There are exclusions and exceptions within the text and case precedence of the PPACA legislation that allow for the creation of Insurance Alternatives away from the HHS / CMS architecture. These paths allow for operations that connect patients to doctors while allowing for the flexibility of access, promote lower prices and creating responsive market conditions that promote innovation and quality.

    2) Policy Architecture: To move away from the broken monolithic ObamaCare failures, plan policies should be aligned with priorities to personal responsibility that are tied directly to individual health concerns relevant themselves. In an individual market, policy holders should not be held liable and hostage to health risks and concerns that are not in their personal risk matrix. I.E. - Men should never have to pay for maternity services, contraception prescriptions, abortions nor gynecological services. Further, if plans were built upon truly catastrophic and emergent needs, the policy premiums would drop dramatically from today's current hockey-stick escalation.

    3) Technology Solutions: Plan access and enrollment needs to move into contemporary technology modals. A 5 step web / mobile clipped platform is so much more flexible and user friendly than the 40 screen ObamaCare Monster. Finding a doctor and getting care should be no more difficult than ordering a Taxi, Take Out Dinner or E-commerce Product. Payment should be just as quick and effortless as well. Doctors should not have to wait weeks for compensation. Insurance should only be used for true emergencies – all other care should be as a service – a true direct pay market commodity.

    These are immediate and expedient solutions that are available to drag a needle across the legacy of Obama and this Legislation that allow for a path out and away.
