Just a sneaky way to get the at risk people who are costing the health care system to pay higher premiums.

Interesting how insurance companies are coming up with all kinds of good plans or raising rates and canceling policies now and not before. Business is business.

It is the first step in government supervision of your health. It makes perfect sense that if the government is picking up the bill that they would dictate your lifestyle. That is not freedom to choose which is what this country is SUPPOSED to be about!

Next, ask yourself how a country full of octogenarians is going to get their health care paid.

Retirement age will be extended so people will work longer and pay into the retirement system longer.

Your lifestyle will be adjusted for you so you can live longer and pay into the system longer.

Now I can prove mathematically that die young, die old it's a wash as far as a strain on the healthcare and retirement system, but people who like running other people's lives wouldn't like or believe it.

You die young you don't collect social security. You die old and the cost of healthcare will become oppressive to those paying into the system. Let's face it, we all die. Do it now or do it later the costs are the same!

I didn't know giving people an incentive to be more vigilant about their health and take better care of themselves was considered "government control" and "blackmail." Maybe you would rather have the taxpayers, who foot the majority of their health care bills, keep paying more and more because people either ignore their health or choose to live unhealthy lives.

Just another way for government to control people's lives by forcing them to conform to their standards. What ever happened to freedom of choice as to how one chooses to live their life? This is nothing more than blackmailing employees into participation so they won't have their pockets picked.
