Kansas premiums lower than expected under new health insurance marketplaces, report says

The young don't pay more than an older person. Companies can charge more based on higher age, location, and if a tobacco user. Smokers can be charged 50% more for their insurance on all age and location based premiums.

It's that some previous policies offered a very limited coverage, which is no longer deemed acceptable. Thus, the possible higher premium.

Letter: Puppet leaders

We all pay for those who don't have health insurance/can't or don't pay for care with higher health insurance premiums and higher charges from doctors and hospitals.

We, as Americans, also lose by not having healthier, more productive citizens.

Obamacare is modeled after Rommeycare, not any European model. The Europeans have figured out how to get more streamlines systems that produce better healthcare for lower costs. They have a variety of systems, none are like Obamacare.

The reason we need reformed health care in the U.S.; we pay about two and a half more than most advanced countries for health care and are rated at number #16, our life expectancy is lower, we are not as healthy, we have millions who do not have access to health care, and medical expenses are the leading cause of bankruptcy.

Which ballparks are you talking about? The local city ballparks that are trying to cover costs of upkeep?

Editorial: Broken system

The ACLU is looking for more plaintiffs (those who are in suspense on voter registration) in their lawsuit. Those who are disenfranchised can contact the ACLU for more information.

Kansas' U.S. House delegation supports bill providing government funding but defunding health law

The Economics of the Affordable Care Act
By DAVID M. CUTLER

What is most clear is that the current health care system is failing families, businesses and governments. The Affordable Care Act is the most serious effort ever made to address the myriad flaws in health care today. If it works as intended, the health of our economy – as well as our people – will be much improved.

"Obamacare", as "Rommeycare", was a Republican idea - keeping money going to private insurance companies - continuing to increase the disparity between the 1% and the rest of us. Obama thought that by going to the Republican plan, it would get some Republican votes. He didn't realize just by indorsing an idea, the Republicans would be against it.

I would personally like to see a single payer system - remove the middle man - streamline the system - eliminate all the paper pushers that drive up the cost.

What is 'good law to replace Obamacare'? Just asking. The Republicans haven't suggested any replacement.
