First of all, let us put all politics aside.  I don’t care if you are for or against the recently passed legislation.  I just want to point out how 100% of Americans should have been against it.

It is claimed that 47 million Americans are without health insurance for whatever reason.  There are 3 primary reasons for this I believe:

  1. Insurance is too expensive
  2. They have a pre-existing condition
  3. They choose not to purchase it as a fundamental right

This legislation does a few things to address each item above.  One thing is that it requires EVERYONE to purchase health insurance or face a penalty.  It also requires insurance companies to treat all Americans the same, i.e. they cannot take age, nor pre-existing conditions into account when figuring out someone’s premium.  The thinking is that now that everyone is required to have health insurance that 40 million (let’s face it, you will never have 100% participation especially when a $1,000 penalty is cheaper than say a $4,000 premium) new enrollees will actually provide enough money into the system to lower premiums for all.
