America must END the “Unequal Tax Treatment” for health insurance purchased by individuals. Individual policyholders pay (in income taxes and premiums) so much more than businesses do for the exact same health insurance coverage. Businesses will continue to buy health insurance with BEFORE-TAX dollars (a significant income tax advantage), while individuals will be forced to buy health insurance with AFTER-TAX dollars (a significant income tax penalty). The unequal tax treatment of health insurance purchases fragments the nationwide health insurance risk pool. Fragmented risk pools enable a nationwide cherrypicking of health risks that is impossible to regulate. This cherrypicking corrupts the American health care marketplace, skimming off the best and most profitable health risks for Wall Street investor owned health insurance companies, while dumping the oldest and poorest health risks on to government health insurance exchanges and local medical service providers. Granting “Equal Tax Treatment to Individual Mandate Health Insurance Purchases” made on exchanges takes nothing away from businesses or unions. In the long run it will help to re-consolidate health insurance risk pools nationwide. Large risk pools, when combined with one standardized nationwide comprehensive health plan, will lead to better health insurance coverage at lower rates for all Americans. ++++++++++++ Captions for this video+++++++++++++++ For the last 21 years I have been buying my Anthem Blue …
Hello,this is how it starts.
Two years ago I moved state and into an apartment with a flatmate.
When I first arrived at the apartment there were a few issues with certain parts of the house, these issues included;
Bathroom: No fan, shower frame falling when bumped, black mould above ceilings.
Bedroom 1: walls cracking
Bedroom 2: walls cracking
The real estate company assured me that these problems will be fixed as soon as possible so I didn’t mind so much.
Anyway down the track I started to experience a few problems, the first problem was one night we had very heavy rain, rain so heavy that it ended up causing a leak in our living room ceiling which was enough to damage a few very expensive electrical appliances including a laptop. I phoned the real estate agent informing them but I did realise there was not much I could do seeing as I did not have home and contents insurance. Of course they stated they would bring someone out to my house to fix the leak to avoid further issues, nothing was ever done even with several reminders. Today it started raining quite heavily again, this time also damaging various electrical appliances and once again moisture has soaked into the carpet, the moisture has also made cracks in walls worsen which is a big issue, not to mention it would not be good for anyones health.
During this 2 year period they have also increased the rent? am I entitled to any sort of compensation seeing as the tasks they stated would be completed have not been? please help
