I don't think West Africa has the infrastructure to really treat Ebola patients, that is why its so out of control there..... I am assuming (have never been there) but they are like any third world country, with intermittent black/brown outs, bad personal hygiene, no real public health education and all those things add up to a bad situation.... So even if we sent the equipment, they would not have the ability to use it properly....
Brian, why are you crying, Obama did what he said he would and he beat the GOP for 6 years.... wipe away your tears and stop being a baby. the GOP needs to do real work, if you are to childish to really put things behind you then maybe you should just shut up and let the adults take care of everything...
Ron, they didn't buy it because they couldn't afford it and they didn't have jobs that gave it to them... Every one would get insurance if it was cheaper and affordable, the mandate is illegal and unnecessary... Anyone who care afford it will get it, if they don't then they can deal with the risks involved....
Joe..its really about getting more insurance products out there and to force the insurance companies to compete by being creative....Yes there will be hurdles, but its doable....Right now with state restrictions the pools are a lot small then they could be
i wonder how much money the House wastes by doing pointless votes, they could have waited a few weeks and done a vote that would have mattered.....
if you break your leg or get into a car accident and then get sent to the ER....at exactly what time will you be buy it? its not the office visits that bankrupt people its the unexpected occurrences, that is what insurance is for.... Once again you are ignoring the fact that most Americans were insured before the ACA without any type of mandate....the mandate is unnecessary, most americans are responsible enough to get insurance....especially if there are extremely cheap alternatives then more people will buy into it....
I agree in that fact that we would have to do that, but then we would have to deal with the whole states rights issue.... we would have to find a hybrid way to get around the pointless state regulations and get the insurance companies sell everywhere, that is a huge key to lower cost....
Jeff, i agree in concept with everything you say....but unfortunately in its also a fact that there are 2 parties who will never release control....so yes in the best case govt. gets restricted but we both know that will never happen, so instead of wishful thinking I like to find ways to work in the system... Right now in my opinion, the best thing to do is to partially repeal and then add parts to make it better, there is no point pretending that our govt. is really for the people and that they will ever do something that completely helps us....
I am sure they can introduce ways for insurance companies to release plans that work in every state....maybe lowering the minimums of compliance for certain plans that will work on a national level.. opening up state lines, means finding a way to make it work so that we can get new innovate products that can reduce cost....
why wouldn't someone that can afford insurance have it, healthy or not....do you know what the real cost of and ER visit is? 200+ million were insured before the ACA, were they all sick? tort reform and opening up state lines will cut costs for insurance companies and that savings can be used to help insure people with pre-existing conditions....There is no need for a mandate, most people who can afford insurance will have it... Also like I said earlier a barebones package should be available, for those ER visits....
