A Wingnut is a person who is (currently) considered a right wing conservative. Someone who sticks to closely to their own political motives and agendas that they cannot see beyond their own ideology. Nothing can change their minds, nothing will sway their vote. They will argue and laugh away the competition.
What happens when people get frustrated with people of this mindset is that they begin to label them as “X” type of person. Once the label is applied, the observer becomes no better than the Wingnut. Why? Because they cannot see past the Wingnuts ideology and recognize the human being that exists within. It is easy to discredit others by listening to a few of their ideas and immediately labeling them based upon that.
This health insurance crisis is surrounded by Wingnut and Wingnut slingers. It stops conversation on both ends. Open up and listen to one another…listen closely, some people are not so concrete in their ideas as one may think.
McCain decided to visit a town hall meeting full of angry and violent attendees. He was quickly chewed out by the crowd that mentioned his past of accepting campaign donations from Health Insurance companies. His response was less than spectacular only being able to utter an “I didn’t know that.”
I wouldn’t put it past a politician, democrat or republican who doesn’t know where their money comes from. All they need to know is the total anyways, their aids handle the rest. However it is alarming to know that those for and against the fight on Healthcare Reform are both nicely funded by Health Insurance companies. This can only guarantee one thing, the survival of the industry albeit a few minor or possibly major changes.
This can mean so many different things across the industry that it makes it difficult for people to understand each other with respect to what they think health insurance reform needs to be. This is part of the mistake whether intentional or not by the Democrats. They included so many different areas of the healthcare industry into reform. They included Medicare, Medicaid, private health insurance reform, doctors, hospitals, providers, and administration.
This combination of different health reform areas has confused the average person. In reality, the biggest problem our government wants to alleviate is the growth in costs for Medicare benefits. This is by far the biggest cost problem. The government though is addressing this by wanting to directly cut benefits and utilize these savings to incur additional entitlement benefits for the uninsured. This has angered many seniors and rightfully so.
There are many ways that are far better in addressing cost reductions in Medicare than just simply cutting benefits. Medicare is a badly run entitlement program that begs for reform. This is the real problem that needs to be fixed and not by reducing benefits.
The biggest mistake President Obama made with the Healthcare Reform package was to guarentee its certain demise by handing it over to senate committees to create an aggreeable package.
There is no way that many people are going to create a document by consensus, only to have to bring it before various other comittees to again create a document by consenses, which will then need to go back toward the original committee for editing and agreement. This is a redundant procedure that will just go in circles. Nothing will get done and it will remain in Congress forever.
The idea of Universal Healthcare is a nice one. It is a noble one. It is a proper human thing to do. That is why so many believe in it, and so many are advocating it. However, it is not an American thing to do. It is not a capitalistic thing to do. It is a socialistic ideal that leads toward a slippery slope which relies heavily on citizen’s dependency on government regardless their role or career in society.
There are too many different faces involved in this, not only government officials and liberal advocates but corporate sponsors and conservative officials looking to make a buck in whatever way they can. We need to be careful and cautions. Imagine what Healthcare Reform is going to do to our country. No one has even spoken about foreign interest in our current healthcare system. I am sure there are many places with foreign faces involved with our current and forthcoming system.
Where does it say that we have a right to free medical insurance? When did we start believing that our Healthcare should be handed to us on a silver platter no matter how much or little we contributed to our society? Where is this mindset coming from?
If we look into the recent development of children into young adults, you will notice a reoccuring pattern: the children are spoiled beyond belief. Many children go throughout their young lives having much more than their parents ever did. They don’t actually have to start spending their own money at times until they are into their late twenties. College educations are expected, and parents are almost a necessity in order for young adults to put a down payment on a house due to ridiculous prices and mortgage abuse. This creates a society of dependents that expect thigns like Health Insurance to be given to them. Not only that, but a generation of parents who have taken care of thiese children wondering what the heck are they going to do when they are gone!
People need to start taking the attitude that its time to work for what they need. The harder you work for Health Insurance the better insurance you get. Catastrophic events are an issue, and there should be protections for those who will go bankrupt from no fault of their own. But people do get sick, and catastrophes do happen. Hurricanes wipe out homes, floods kill millions of people. People get pregnant when they didn’t expect to. People get robbed and killed by fellow human beings, strangers and family alike. There is no guarantee in this world, there are only those who are stronger, mentally and physically, and work harder than others. There are those who can survive catastrophe due to strength and intelligence, and those that do not due to fear and self-doubt. It is not that these people do not deserve to live, but the circumstance in which they are in is unfavorable and they are not built for survival of that type. It is the same as being born into a rich or poor home. It is the same as being born with a genetic or physical defect. You can overcome them, but it is not fair and there is nothing you can do about it. Your unique attributes as a human being and the environment in which you are in determine whether you survive or not every day. Even the most intelligent commit suicide due to not being able to handle an environment of stress, even though they make millions of dollars! Even the most crippled can write books or generate ideas that change the world!If we start giving away Healthcare as a right, what else should we have as a right? Food, water and shelter? Television? The internet?
Life is hard work and a battle to survive. Work hard! Dont get caught in situations you should’nt be in and can avoid.
The problem with a document that is 1000 pages long is that it is so open to interpretation that by nature the message or instruction therein becomes ambiguous. There can be so many different interpretations on the way things are read it is ridiculous. Some people can interpret a simple procedure to notify the elderly of end of life decisions as the promotion of euthanasia for the elderly. It is ridiculous to create a text that is going to rival the bible on interpretation for something as specific as Healthcare and Health Insurance Reform, or is it?
If we look at the Bible, we see a text that has been translated, interpreted and described in various different ways. People have established laws for life based upon a text that is not only open to interpretation but in many ways ambiguous and symbolic. So why cant we do this with Healthcare Reform? The problem with doing this in our secular society is that there are various different parties of thought that already have a certain mindset and set of texts they believe in, namely the US Constitution. The agendas are not nearly as pure as biblical ones. Hardly divinely inspired, most advocates and oppositions are either social rights promoters or corporate patsies.
So yes, large documents base don ambiguity as a way to organize our social order does work. For a theocratic society basing themselves on religions beliefs and divine authority it can work, but for a secular society where greed and deception run the game…we have alot to worry about.
Generally, if an employer offers health insurance coverage to the spouses of employees, they usually don’t extend the coverage to unmarried partners. Under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), employers are not required to offer health insurance to any employees, spouses, or “domestic partners” (this term is often used to include same-sex couples and unmarried opposite-sex couples, as well as common law marriages). ERISA also does not compel employers that provide health insurance for employees and legal dependents to extend coverage to domestic partners.
When benefits are offered to domestic partners, the level of coverage varies depending on the employer. Domestic partner benefits may include long-term care, group life insurance, family and bereavement leave, and most commonly, health, dental, and vision insurance. The definition of domestic partner may also vary from employer to employer. Some companies include same-sex couples, unmarried opposite-sex couples, and common law marriages. Regardless of how the term is defined, employers typically require domestic partners to sign an affidavit stating that they are in a lasting, committed relationship. They may also require that a couple live together for a specified period of time before they become eligible for domestic partner benefits.
Family Health Insurance Should Meet Your Needs and Budget
Among many Americans, family health insurance has become a welcome alternative to employer-sponsored medical coverage programs. As an expansion of individual health insurance, family medical insurance programs allow additional immediate family members to be included in the same policy.
Compared to purchasing individual policies, placing the entire family under a single program can help speed up the processing of application, deposit payments and claims. In addition, health insurance developed particularly for families may allow more flexible terms on deductibles, co-insurance, policy maximums and exclusions, and other options.
