A Little Help for the Brain Challenged

I penned a post the other day about the fact that HR3200 makes private medical insurance IMPOSSIBLE. This morning I received a link to an obviously very intelligent post from one of our friends on the Left. Remember, to call someone on the left "intelligent" can mean they are so sandpoundingly stupid as to defy the presumption that they would have already been thinned from the herd by sticking their head into a FIRE.

Anyhoo, I shall link to brain dead idiot's post so you can see the awesomeness that is mental deficiency. Wear rubber boots, it is a shitstorm of typical leftist ridiculousness. Now, into the fray with you!

Here is the rub, I did not post the text of the Bill because it is a .pdf file. You cannot just cut and paste, but for the sake of clarity, I shall actually type the stuff out. Here you go, from page 16, from line 11 to line 16, the Bill reads VERBATIM:
(A) IN GENERAL.--Except as provided in this paragraph, the individual health insurance insurer offering such coverage does not enroll any individual in such coverage if the first effective date of coverage is on or after the first day of Y1.

This is exactly, word for word what the Bill says. So, any private insurer CANNOT add a single person to any existing plan after the first year that the LAW is in effect. What this means, to explain it to obviously brain dead idiots, is that the private insurance company MUST have all of the purchasers in the plan before the end of the first year the LAW is in effect.

By the way, there are some other provisions in that section, too, but none actually strike out this NO NEW PARTICIPANTS clause. If you want the Bill, gimme your e-mail address and I will send you the damn thing.

After year one, you may NEVER get a new person into the plan. That means the number of your customers never increases, ever. Of course, the number of your customers will always decrease because as of now, humans do not live forever.

Also, further down in this same section, by the end of Year 5, your plan must meet all federal government guidelines for medical insurance or you shall be fined. The minimum fine for ANY infraction in this Bill is five hundred thousand dollars PER INFRACTION.

Also, this does not limit any NEW companies from offering another plan that meets the provisions of the government plan, either. BUT! If you were a capitalist and you wanted to start a medical insurance company, while strapped to exactly what you must offer and the amount you must charge for it, how long would you stay in business?

You see, Meatbrain, the Bill does not have to use the actual word "illegal" nor the word "impossible" to accomplish just that. If you require even further explanation, I cannot help you because I seriously have no clue on how to be more plain than that.

Good luck to you, and keep your head away from FIRE.

Please take the time to comment.
