When you first moved out of your parent’s house?

Deal Score0

Was the first thing you bought health insurance?

Or was it furniture, food, and booze?

How many people have bought flat screen LCD screens before even checking on health insurance prices and now believe the government must do something about this pressing health insurance issue?

    Just because the majority of young Americans make idiotic, self-destructive choices doesn’t mean we should promote that further. Going without insurance and quality health care that insurance provides is dangerous. Trying to argue against the current reform efforts by citing apathetic and ignorant young adults isn’t a good way to justify a point.

    When I first moved out of my parents’ house it was to go away to college, and from there I drove three states away with all my worldly possessions in the back of my car, and got myself a job that provided health insurance.

    Over 100 Americans a day are dying because of a lack of health insurance. Why are you arguing to keep that happening? Are you that heartless?

    Are you suggesting adults should live with their parents until they can afford living expenses PLUS the ridiculous cost of heath care? Wow! I know a lot of people in their 40’s and 50’s who sure the heck don’t want their kids staying until then!

    When I first moved out I had a regular average job where the employer paid the insurance, otherwise it would have been 20.00 a week. Insurance rates go up each year much more than inflation. I do not have ins. now, I can’t afford it, but I have not been sick and I am not for Obamacare. I am for insurance becoming more affordable.

    Just after George Bushs Presidential Inauguration. I’m considering to move back home because ObamaCare will force me to sell my last t-shirt so i can afford it. I will move into my parents home with my wife and my two daughters

    At first I bought food and booze, and drove very carefully. And not right after drinking the booze, of course.

    Then I got a higher-paying job that offered health insurance, and bought even more food and booze.

    Then I was living and working abroad for a while, in a place where it cost the equivalent of 75 cents to see a doctor after a fifteen minute wait without an appointment and prescription meds MIGHT run you upwards of thirty or forty bucks, if you were rather unlucky. Subsidies are not always a terrible thing. Still bought food and booze.

    Never had any use for a flat screen LCD through any of that, though. What a waste.

    I moved out at age 5 and 7 because of wartime evacuations in England. Then, at age 18, I left again to go and work in North Africa. At age 21 I emmigrated to Canada. It wasn’t until 24 that I owned any item of household furniture including a TV. Until I retired, my Government and employers provided health insurance.

    Yes I was looking to survive. I am confused originally they said that 62,500 people were being killed because they didn’t’ have any insurance adn then it dropped to 30,000. These numbers are from speeches you can see on utube, but about two months ago President Obama said the number was 12,500! That is a 50,000 person drop and confusing. Were do they come from?

    Nader said 100,000 were being killed in the hospitals due to “mistakes” and read an article that now or 2007 198,000 were killed by the hospitals.But I wonder were they get the information from for these statistics. I know when in Texas everyone go cared for at the ER, Parkland had t write off $ 100 million for anchor babies and just cannot see how anyone is not taken care of.

    I know of folks that couldn’t afford care and they got it through the government, hospital and state agencies. Had friend that was taken care of with cancer. Know many that have babies and stuff. So it is out there.

    The hospitals in 2008 increased there donations to our House and Senate members by 65% to $ 500 million*, yep half a BILLION. this had to be done in anticipation of getting this bill passed and making some cash as half a billion is a lot of money considering the other lobbyists and companies gave them in total $ 3.2 billion that year.

    It’s sad that they don'[t make the companies pay on claims instead of jerking people around and making the sick fight them in court, sad indeed and the politicians should be ashamed. Also it is sad that the Big Five insurance companies are the only ones in most states and they don’t figure out how to do that. As far as tort reform we have it here and a man with a family of five that is killed “accidentally” in the hospital, well his family might be lucky to get $ 250,000, but since the hospitals will spend a million to fight it it normally doesn’t happen, beware of tort reform!

    If I have to chose between food or insurance well…. Take care and God Bless! maybe since we are voting them out in 11 months now and they don’t want to lose all that money they might do something good.

    Add on” looked for some numbers ranging fomr 45,000 to 18,000 but some say the parameters where done it extreme cases and the like. what I did find interesting is that 20 years ago these rates were half as low so I guess it’s becuase of so many extra people being in the ERs. another study stated that 7% of the 2.6 million deaths were due to no insurance. Just cannot understand with all there out there why no one is not taken care of. But they need to start now as this stupid bill will not help anyone for 3-4 years. they could easily pass parts in no time.

    I sent half of my meager pay back home, and wasted the rest as I was in the military, prior to that I worked for a short time and partied the money up
