Re: “The Skinny

Use your head. Healthcare could be fixed much cheaper if the Health Insurance companies were left out of the equasion. Example? ok, they spent billions on lobbiests to kill the public option. Those costs are just passed on to the insured and uninsured thru cost increases. There are approximatly 360 Million men women and children in America right now.Instead of spending 1 trillion dollars over the next 10 years, give every living American a health savings account with a 1 Million dollar lifetime benefit.
This money could only be used to pay for the uncovered costs for medical care. IE...Emergency rooms, office visits, testing, Lab work, treatment...
Most people would never use that lifetime benefit amount so it could be rolled back into the fund for future use. Those that do burn thru their full benefit amount, let them appeal and more money might be allowed for their circumstances. The population in America is not projected to hit 1 Trillion people for a long, long, long, time more than 10 years so the total outlay in funds will not even equal what the insurance companies spent to defeat the public option. Imagine how the costs for healthcare would be reduced if every doctor or hospital were paid for their services rendered. Then those costs would not be passed on the insured and uninsured.
