    • Why would we want a health care reform that in the mist of all that fluff is that for people selling their home they also have to pay 3% on the total sales (its a tax upon other taxes) of that house to the health care reform.......So you are paying 3% of what you sold your house for to the government to help fund the health care...but weve already paid taxes for that?? So, I work hard to  buy the house and now Its time to sell and I lose another 3%?? SO that gets past to the buyer and they cant afford another 3% So people cant buy people cant sell what do u think happens to economy now???
      3% of adverage house in ca is what another 3 grand and in this economy.....it keeps us spinning our tails.
      Health care reformed by administration now will see more hurt than good
      There were other ways to make it happen.
      Its again how everything rides off another.....

        • Its buried in all the fluff as I like to call it.  That 3% will go bc to the health care reform to basically keep it going. To me it is double dipping. Just one more thing that will stop the growth as I see it. It is really scarey that with out such a massive change of our structure we could keep going down....who can afford an extra 3% and will that raise intrest rates if the loans have to get bigger for the buyer because the seller will push that to the buyer.just a thought

        • I think this health care plan is going to turn out to be a real stinker! I’m already hearing grumbling from small business owners I know who are seeing some of the extra costs associated with it.

        • We need real health care reform- not this wishy-washy stuff we have now.  All I know is I pay over $600 a month to have health insurance and then can’t afford to use it due to high deductibles and co-pays.

          Taking 3% of a person’s home sale sounds like robbery to me.  Why don’t we put caps on the profits that thieving health insurers are able to obtain?

        • more costs fall to us than were told. yes it MIGHT lower your deductables and co payments but the different taxes you will end up paying could cost you more . This was pushed through on someones agenda for they didnt listen to the people. The majority was saying “no”

        • Mztracy,is your health care through hubbys employer? Or is it outside source? If it is through rmployer there is a way to continue even if employer is changing carriers.

        • The ex’s insurance has gone up every year for the last 5.  I live in the highest state for malpractice suits, higher insurance rates too.  This past year the rate went so high that he decided to file for bankruptcy.  He couldn’t afford to have the health insurance, pay the house payments, and credit cards without doing so.  He tried to get insurance through an outside source but due to his health problem he was denied.  So was both of our daughters.  One is Bi-polar and the other has asthma.  He didn’t include me due to the fact that we were in the middle of a divorce which should have been over by the first of the year.  So he stayed with the insurance that the company was offering.  Which happens to be Blue Cross.  The rates he pays is around about $900 per month.  The company does not pick up any cost due to the fact that it is so expensive.  The co-pays are $40 for a doctor, $60 for a specialist and medication runs about $40 for generic and up to $150 - $300 for name brand.  My daughter sees a specialist (her therapist or psychologist) monthly.  A few weeks ago he told me that he didn’t think that they will have insurance next year.  He has been looking into the state kid program, which is very good but he has to take out two separate policies on the girls.  If I went for it and went as a family it would be one.  So now he wants me to carry the insurance for the kids.  

          Tracy - you are about the only person that I have heard of that their insurance is not going up in some way or another.  Most everyone else is seeing a drastic increase of co-pays, deductibles and rates.  

          Its sad that so many people will never really know what is in the Health Care Bill because it was just voted on without anyone really reading and looking at how it would effect everyone.
