Obamacare to punish healthy eaters as insurance rates double or triple for those who choose to take care of their health

Natural News | July 2, 2013

According to an analysis just published by the Wall Street Journal, healthy people will pay double or triple their current health insurance rates under Obamacare. Rates for those with chronic disease, however, will be reduced as all the healthy people subsidize their disease lifestyles.

The net effect is that people who choose to follow a healthy lifestyle — eating well, taking nutritional supplements, exercising and avoiding junk foods — will be financially punished by the federal government while those who choose to follow a disease and sickness lifestyle — eating junk foods, taking meds, refusing to exercise, etc. — will be rewarded by government.

This is the essence of socialized medicine: punish responsible citizens while rewarding those who refuse to take care of their health.

Disease is a matter of cause and effect, not luck

Obamacare, like all socialized medicine systems, is based on the false premise that health outcomes are a matter of pure luck. Disease just “randomly strikes people,” the thinking goes, and individuals have nothing to do with their own health. This false belief fits nicely with the financial interests of Big Pharma and doctors, of course, because it puts the power of health in the hands of corporations and medical personnel.

  1. Hmmmm

    Given that the Bill which was passed by Congress (including a large contingent of Republicans) is well over 2000 pages long, is being constantly amended and “updated”, “exemptions” and “exceptions” are being granted left and right (like the completely corrupt Congress exempting themselves and their staff on the grounds it is to expensive) Until and unless this health care bill is actually fully in place and enforced we will have absolutely NO CLUE what the costs and effects will actually be. Which is of course exactly what the writers had in mind in the first place. Hiding a penny in a field of grass is a lot lot easier than trying to hid it in your driveway.
