Will the Exchange/"Public Option" plans be more affordable than private insurance when...
...they are banned from covering abortion procedures (because costs are offset individually out of pocket)?

Or will these plans be more expensive because the average family size in the pools is 13.7 children?

1. lol. Not to mention the increased need for public assistance and, later, the cost to
imprison all the unwanted children born into families who couldn't afford them and turned to Lives of Crime! Seriously.

2. On the otherhand, speaking simply in health care dollars....
Is the completely socialized health care many of the non-aborted future inmates receive in prison less than the cost of the mommy aborting it?

We really need to do the math here.

If we could "reform" prison by mandating it for minorities (cuts down on paying police to actually put them there for driving while black, or some such heinious crime) and subsidizing the crap outta it, then maybe we could crunch the numbers and get that cost down. Maybe bring back chain gangs? We can make this work.

5. If we can just make them work for free then we can stop outsourcing. So, forced labor while
imprisoned is really the best option and gets us points with the left for bringing jobs back home. But nothing we actually need infrastructure to create because we can't pay free workers here bottom dollar to do that. I think having inmates man the customer service lines for credit card companies is probably the most expedient solution. We'll get thousands, if not millions, of citizens bankrupted and subject to identity theft which puts them back in our pocket. Whadya think?

3. Where are they banned from offering abortion procedures?
If you are pregnant due to incest, rape, or the mother's health----you can get an aborton paid for.

Hyde already was in place which kept funding from abortion procedures---medicaid doesn't offer abortion procedures if you don't fit the above. You need to fit the above to get the procedure taken care of.

I don't know why you're spreading a false meme.

4. What if you just wanna keep your fetus from becoming a future right-wing air-wasting fucktard?
Just for shits n giggles?

You have a private insurance plan, that satisfies the government mandate, but it just happens to be subsidized in the exchange (hey, its what your Dunkin Donuts employer chose to sponsor)....well, as I understand it, tough shit.

Little Johnny Fetus Jr. will grow up, amongst his other non-aborted brothers Jedediah, Jerry, Justin, Junk, Jed and Jim, and learn about how to make shanks from toothbrushes from Johnny Sr. on family visits to the state pen.

So the question is, which plans will be more affordable? The pure private, sinful fetus aborting policies, or the holy pure subsidized ones that litter the world with non-aborted shit-bags?

Time is ticking. Simple question.

6. Banning coverage for women for ANYTHING, just striking them from the plan entirely, would really
save costs, too. I mean, cut the need to fund it in half, if not more.
