Daily Kos Readers think there IS an Individual Opt Out
Daily Kos readers (without actually presenting or sighting or referencing anything in the 1990 paged bill to back up their argument) claims indviduals have the right to opt-out of the Public Option.
Well... Take a look at page 94 of the 1990 paged document:
"LIMITATION ON INDIVIDUAL HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE
(1) In General... Individual Health Insurance Coverage that is not GRANDFATHERED in (to the Public Option -- Varchild2008 comment) under subsection (a) may only be offered on or after the first day of Y1 as an Exchange-Participating Health Benefits Plan."
The DAILY KOS argument is essentially that because it is an option, therefore you as an individual can chose not to sign up. Huh? They why is there Grandfathering language written in?
Grandfathering language in HR3200 AND THIS BILL are as far as I can tell the same deal where you're individual plan will eventually be changed into a Government Public Option Plan or at least be forced with strict changes and mandates set up by the Secretary of Health and Human services.
Don't believe me?
"Page 93.... Read Line 13
(Paraphrased as the stupid bill collapsed on me)
In no case shall an employment based health insurance plan be deemed acceptable if it covers only one or more of the clauses in (i) through (iii)."
This Bill is set up to where it is inconceivable to imagine that the Government Run Health Care Bill is anything but a massive take over of the Health Insurance Industry. Number clauses spell out how the Secretary gets to set up his/her own set of rules on Exchange Traded Health Insurance Coverage and what insurance is acceptable versus what is not.... All Health Care Coverage is set up to have to cover everything the Government Run Option is supposed to cover without any ability to set limits based on domestic violence, age, health status, etc.
The impact to your Health Insurance Company when this bill passes is going to be that your premiums will sky rocket and you as an indvidual will not be able to afford your "Choice" unless your choice is the Government Run Public Option.
D-KOS readers labeling Sean Hannity as dumb while not bothering to actually read the bill when forming their arguments:
If this is the typical intelligence level of a liberal voter then no wonder they vote liberal.
I can go and vote liberal too!!!!!! I'll just hit myself in the head with a sledgehammer so that I am inacpable of reading much less doing research on a Pelosi Health Insurance Coverage Bill and then just sit and drool in front of my T.V. with MSNBC Blaring.
Seriously.... If these DAILY KOS Readers did even the slightest bit of reading of this bill then I don't see how they can possibly stake this claim that individuals can opt out of this monstrosity which essentially gets to be interpreted by the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT in any way they see fit to issue rules and mandates against the Health Insurance you currently have...
