The bullshitter ignores these demands altogether. He does not reject the authority of the truth, as the liar does, and oppose himself to it. He pays no attention to it at all. By virtue of this, bullshit is a greater enemy of the truth than lies are.
Avik Roy is a premium bullshitter when he ‘analyzes’ the premium changes that an unregulated, underwritten market will produce and Obamacare. Let me describe his ‘methodology’:
Our map compares the five cheapest plans available on the market today to the five cheapest plans available on Obamacare’s exchanges.
Let me give you some examples of the policies that he is using to argue rate shock:
Arkansas: $26 per month for a $25,000 deductible 23% applicants denied. 28% uprated.
Ohio: $25,000 deductible, 19% denied, 17% uprated.
Yep, when the comparison is between get hit by a bus and then have the bus back up and run you over again insurance and even Obamacare catastrophic coverage, the get hit twice by a bus insurance that significant number of applicants can’t get actual coverage, looks good. It is a product that does absolutely nothing for the few people that qualify for it. Most will look at $25,000 deductibles and laugh as that is a bankruptcy just as a $250,000 medical bill is a bankruptcy. Oh yeah, it also assumes the applicant is male as women will get higher rates.
