McCain’s camp states that his health plan sucks?

October 29, 2008

You know what?  I know the GOP, after getting Bush in the house over thievery feel the American people are just so disgustingly stupid.  Surprise.  We are not.  This is not about Obama winning.  This is about another theft.  I don’t think I will be all cool if they steal another damn election.  I will be one of the active voices calling for a revolution.  They sold us down the toilet and I want them to continue ruling because I’m supposedly stupid?  Not.

Now McCain’s economic advisers comes out and state that McCain’s health plan is not worth participating in?

Estimates vary, but the Tax Policy Center estimates that 20 million people would lose their employer-based coverage by 2018. Roughly the same number would gain insurance through other means. But, overall, McCain’s plan would do little to reduce the number of uninsured.

Also of concern, experts say, is the fact that the $5,000 tax credit would be indexed to inflation. As a result, it would not keep up with the swiftly rising cost of health care, which was soaring as much as 13% a year in the middle of this decade.

McCain advisers counter these concerns. Changing the tax treatment wouldn’t hurt the employer-sponsored system and would allow more of the uninsured to buy their own coverage, they say. Also, his advisers say a McCain administration would keep an eye on the credit to make sure it didn’t lag behind the cost of coverage, while also working to lower the rate of medical inflation.

Younger, healthier workers likely wouldn’t abandon their company-sponsored plans, said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, McCain’s senior economic policy adviser.

Why would they leave?” said Holtz-Eakin. “What they are getting from their employer is way better than what they could get with the credit.

Why would they leave?  Of course McCain’s plan is so much better and will serve all of us better than our employer based plan.  Considering after a certain amount of time our employers will stop offering us any type of plan.  You’ve got to love the republicans.  They are 100% behind big business.  That’s one of the reasons we pay for our own 401Ks (with donations now and again from our employers).  McCain I salute you because all big financial and oil businesses must be crying over your polls, since they want you to win and need you to win.  How else can we have more corruption?  Disgusting.

Enough said.
