Rand Paul: Insurance should be available for $1 a day

Recommended Posts

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kent.) slammed Senate Republicans' healthcare overhaul bill on Friday, saying that it's grounded in "propping up" insurance companies.

He also called for the creation of a healthcare law that would reduce insurance costs to as little as $1 a day for at least some consumers.

"What I'd like to do is legalize inexpensive insurance, and you should be able to get insurance for $1 a day. I mean, you really should," Paul said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "The insurance companies make all the money; all of this is predicated upon still propping up the insurance companies."

Now 1$ a day seems nice. But what will needed to be done to acquire such a great deal? Taking from somewhere?

Until the federal government places a price ceilings on everything related to medical care, just like is done for Tricare medical for all armed forces active duty and retirees, nothing is going to work. Capitalism does not exist within the medical community as every direct and indirect aspect of it is a run-way train of gouging, price fixing, monopoly and racketeering. Nothing stopping the medical community from engaging in capitalism competition for attracting business with LOWERING their prices. Must have tort reform to place ceilings on suing as well. Insurance companies are also at fault. Medical providers know the insurance will pay so they will ALWAYS charge the maximum the insurance will pay them.

Solution:  single payer for Medicaid, just like they have for Medicare.  Pay for preventive care because it's cheaper in the long run.  Illegals do not qualify for Medicaid or Medicare.  Negotiate lower prices for prescription drugs.

We wouldn't be needing as much healthcare if we ate little sugar and got lots of veggies, drank green tea, etc.

it should not be about the insurance companies making big money, but it is all about the insurance companies making money.

Unless they castrate the insurance companies or even put them out of business, nothing will happen along these lines.  Always follow the money. 

The insurance companies collect premiums then the money goes to the financial markets and the banking industry.  And of course some goes to politicians.

Someone once described the U.S. government as the biggest insurance company in the world; with a standing army to back it up if you file a claim.

sigh...
