The law, signed by President Barack Obama in March 2010, now mandates that most health plans cover a set of preventive services, including shots and screening tests, with no co-payment — regardless of whether someone has met his or her yearly deductible.

“It’s a great example of how having insurance can make a lot of difference and may reduce a barrier for people,” said Dr. Jeffrey Rideout, senior medical adviser at Covered California, the state’s health insurance exchange.

Argh!

It’s like getting your car’s oil change for free.

Can’t repeal the Laws of Economics any more than you can repeal the Law of Gravity.

Someone, the Sheeple Taxpayers, will pay exorbitantly for these “free” services!

POLITICAL: Treatment of the poor

Why Are the Poor and Minorities Less Likely to Vote?
 
Even when America’s underclass isn’t formally stripped of its ballot, a slew of barriers come between them and full representation and participation.

Interesting that the Gooferment “poverty programs” don’t distinguish the “takers and moochers” from the “truly needy”.

From my experiences with Homefront NJ, the “charity” people and Clients both felt that the State Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats were more interested in keeping the poor dependent.

Of course, Homefront NJ, (populated by a bunch of smart business women and some with Wall Street backgrounds), didm ’t want to keep help the same people. Put them on the “ladder of success”, show folks how to climb, and make sure they get going. Then move on to the next person to help.

The State, and to a lesser extent the Federal Gooferment, didn’t make that easier.

Argh!

That’s why the Gooferment should try and do “welfare”, “charity”, or “help”!

Conflict of interests.
