Wonder Why Health Insurance Premiums Go Up? A Possible Answer.

  • SumoMe

The video says it all, so I’ll be brief.

How many hospital emergency rooms are treating the typical thrill-seeking, adrenaline junkies like the one you see in this video?

Whether this guy has insurance or not is beside the point. Either way, WE pay more in healthcare costs because of reckless stunts like this. Not to mention, public parks officials often have to impose access restrictions on places like this in order to discourage this type of stupidity.

So people like this get their adrenaline rush, and the public pays…in a variety of ways.

    And here I thought this was going to be another diatribe on “Obamacare”….my mistake. I’m still waiting for the health care system to collapse like all of you people predicted. Hospitals closing, no one going to medical school, starving doctors, etc. All of that fear you guys spread …… will that be coming soon?

      Al, there are a large number of people who suddenly found their premiums skyrocket because of the ACA. Or, if they received a tax credit for their health insurance found they had an enormous amount they had to repay because their household income changed. Or they got hit with the 1%/$600 per-person penalty because they were not insured. Those are real Americans suffering real financial hardship…doesn’t that count for something?
