I'd rather pay a little higher premium and have low deductible and out of pocket expenses as opposed to low premiums and high deductibles and out of pocket expense. either way, the insurance company is making huge profits and people that don't have a lot of extra cash get slammed with the medical bills. thus when the medical bills get so overwhelming, they file chapter 7. then nobody gets paid.

I have plenty between my ears Mr. Smarty Pants, just not the same stuff you have between your ears. you have evidently made your fortune already, I am working on mine so with the plan Romney hinted at, I won't be able to get to my goal.

I don't know. all I know, is right now, they are taking care of us pretty well and they have told us that it will continue to be the case. They have not lied to us yet, so I have every reason to believe that they are sincere.

    Actually, i think the business and political world would like to see us go back to no company provided insurance plan, no birth control, families with 5 or more kids and a life expectancy of 50. That would solve a lot of "problems" for them........-Paul

    Well it seems that the neighborly thing to do would be for you to enlighten us, in that case.

    I'm a little surprised that you would be in favor of large deductible plans.

    On another note, large deductibles would be pretty rough on retired folks that have modest fixed incomes. In most cases, that's the stage in life when good health insurance is usually very important.

    My personal belief is that we will not see real and significant health care reform and some control over the costs associated with health care until the Senate, House, SCOTUS and POTUS no longer get the ABSOLUTE BEST care for life. In other words, when Hell freezes over.........-Paul

    I don't know any more about what's in them than you do!

    You saw first hand how much of your assets had to be used for your 1st wife when she became ill, Stan. I'm a little surprised that you would be in favor of large deductible plans.
    Classy!!

    And I on the other hand want lower premiums and a higher deductable. I would like to keep my money and assume some responsibility when my family or I have health issues. To each there own but don't force me to have what you want!

    That's EXACTLY why the gov't should stay out of it. Let the free market handle the health care business just like any other business and we would all have more choices.
