This week on Flash Talks Cash, JoAnn "Flash" Fleming is once again joined by Andrew Newman, and they are talking about healthcare- specifically the new happenings with Obamacare. Flash summarizes some of the key elements of the new bill, such as the "individual mandate" and the "death spiral". Tune in to hear how some of the Supreme Court Justices weigh in on the bill, and how Andrew feels about it (hint: unconstitutional). This week's episode also features a Number Nuts all about prostitution in the Netherlands! This episode was brought to you by White Oak Pastures.
"I think employer-sponsored heath care is going to be defunct...it's too expensive for employers to pay for this. It's a very big perk they pay for- as they've done with pension plans through the years, they've now put the burden on the employees. More and more, the burden of the health insurance costs are going on the employees"
"You need the premiums from healthy people to offset the sickly people, so if this doesn't stop over time you're going to have fewer and fewer healthy people buying insurance, and it's going to be even more outrageously expensive and more difficult for Americans to get insurance."
