Obamacare, Insurance Companies and ‘Fuzzy Math’

LESSONS IN LOGIC: Health Insurance Companies Not Totally Victims Here

Have you heard the stories about how Obamacare mandates that men must be covered for maternity care and post-menopausal women must have birth control?  Have you heard the health insurance companies claiming that this is partially responsible for the spikes in insurance rates?  Well, I don’t want to sound like I am trying to beat-up on the insurance companies here because I am a business owner, myself.  However, if I am going to call government out when it lies, then I am going to point the same finger of logic at the private sector when it tells stories.  It’s the only way I know how to be.

So, why would I say the insurance companies are lying about Obamacare mandating coverage that is causing the rates to go increase?  What proof do I have?  I have logic and an understanding of right and wrong.  That’s really all you need to know the insurance companies are lying about these issues.  Now, let me walk you through it and see whether or not you agree.

  1. Joe,

    As I understand it, many of the insurance companies lined up to support Obama Care and realizing they could game the system to increase profits. After all, that is a corporations primary goal to maximize profit to it’s share holders. As free market capitalist, we accept this.

    Where we run into difficulty is when a people become beguiled by a government, that has usurped power from the free market through laws and regulations, to give them rights at the expense of others rights and corporations and others play along for immoral gain.

    Just as all governments are inherently evil so are corporations. After all, they are all run by man, who without the indwelling of Christ Spirit are morally corrupt as well. Just look at the methodology corporations use to secure high compensation for those in the upper eschellons of management to scrape the gravy off the top before even providing a return to the common stock share holder. Stock holders allowing the use of stock options as a form of compensation is one such method.

    This is not an attack on the wealthy. It is up to them to decide what to do with their wealth and ultimately they will be responsible for their decision on how to best use it. Hiding behind a corporate shell may protect them for legal liabilities but will not protect the individual from God’s judgement.

    We have become ungrateful as a people and a nation for the blessings God gave us thinking we are fully responsible for our own success.

    Amos 8 comes to mind:

    4 Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,

    5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?

    6 That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?

    7 The Lord hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works.

    As we celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow let us all give thanks to God for every good gift and every perfect gift that cometh down from above. (James 1:17)
