ObamaCare in a Nuthouse

Hatched by Dafydd

Since I hope that a few more people think about this point than read my Twitter feed (I have seventeen follows*, ooh-rah!), here's my latest tweet:

ObamaCare: Mandates every health plan cover everything -- then taxes the hell out of all those "gold-plated" policies. Kill it at cloture.

I live in California, so this will be an intensely personal issue with me: The state and federal governments between them mandate that our health-care plans cover everything you can imagine; and there are other states even more demanding. I reckon that means that all of us "wealthy" people will be paying a hefty tax for the privilege of obeying the stupid legal mandates.

Thank you, mask man.



* My previous tweet was two months ago. Perhaps I would have more followers if I tweetied -- twitted -- tooted? -- a bit more frequently. Of course, if I actually tooted more often, it might not affect my readers, but I bet I'd have fewer face-to-face conversations!

Another thing about those “Cadillac” plans: If you have an individual plan like mine, it’s probably age rated -- the premium goes up as you advance toward geezerhood.

So you can start out in your twenties with a Honda Civic and, with no change in coverage, gradually progress to a spanking new Escalade years before you’re ready for Medicare.

Ain’t socialism grand?

find a plug-in or utility that will put up tweet for every blog post. Then you only have to write once and can still have those fact to face things you were talking about.
