    Asus had better Hurry Up!

    Sad News I have received last night about us poor US Residents, Here by the end of the Health Care Reform Mandatory Sign Up Asus and all it's competitors are going to loose a Major Market! The US of A and if loose is too strong a word then use two words Major Decrease.

    What I found from a YouTube Video was- Median Income Households will be paying Astronomical Prices for Mandatory Health Coverage, as much as 50,000 a Year. I personally went to the site for signing up last night and encountered a multilevel pricing scheme with the major Ripoff Companies represented. For just my Wife and myself to be insured thru this system it will cost me as little as $459 USD to as high as $898 USD per Month and that's just Two People with no Dental, only Heath at between Less than 60% to 80% of Medical Cost Coverage.

    Think how much a Family of 4 will be paying.... This will send the Buying Public into a Tailspin of using the Equipment they already have instead of New Equipment. I can see over the next 6 months a Major decrease to Purchases in the US along with a Recession once again.

    Now the Good News Every Lower Wealthy, Middle Class and Poor in the US will have More Money Pulled from their Pockets by the Government. Everyone who was in Prison is Exempt as well as the ones who get Medicaid/ Medicare. Everyone will Have Health Insurance Mandatory or pay a Penalty(fancy Word for Fine But Still Undisclosed Amount). BTW it's the same Insurance as the people on Welfare Get which Sucks Badly! and is the Same Companies....

    I guess Asus and their Policy over the last couple years of Alienating the US from their Sales and Support have been moving in the right direction since the US isn't going to be the Buying Power it was Last Year.

    So in conclusion Asus had better Up Their sales with Fancy Marketing and Such while they can because here soon that will be gone forever.

    It's high time you moved to Australia old boy! we too have mandatory health insurance, but you have to earn 50K a year first before you must do it...and then at the end of the financial year, you can get I think it's 10% back, or use that to cover the next year's costs of it and pay less. Though I don't think anyone here pays 900 a month for health insurance....what a ripoff.

    You should of expected this when the lawmakers, yes the senate and congressmen/congresswomen ,
    have their own healthcare Plans

    They don't want anything to do with this healthcare plan. Immune

    move to norway, the healthcare is in the tax here, and its free healthcare, no need for expensive and dodgy insurances like the US have.

    it will be cheaper for people to pay the IRS fines for the next 15 years in a row before signing up. I'll be doing this like most americans. 1% or 95 bucks, it goes up every year

    I disagree. They care about political contributions, ie bail out the banks, seriously?

    sectionate, that's more than I've read on it....I couldn't find a single quote as to how much the fine will be....Thank You for that info. now the other side I didn't mention that goes far beyond the Prices is the Taxes are going WAY UP to support the IRS who is now in control of this mess so the average person not only get's SLAMMED by the High cost of our Government Control but also get's SLAMMED by the Taxes to support this Monstrosity of a Law.....OUCH!
