But the price for a 20 something with good income buying
a mid-range policy averages about $270 per month.
The fine is $95 per month.
YBF I am with you , I would like to retire and I need ACA to work for that to happen..but I have a 20 something at home, she ain't gonna pay any extra money she does not have to.
you must be rich.
If you started with say , $150,000 10yrs ago and you made, say 45% per year, you you would have over $12mm today.
What are you doing wasting your time on this MB?
if you bought AGNC April 28th 2011 (like me) and just held on, and put your dividends in the mattress (or a similar return of zero or better) you would have a total return of 23.5% or annual equivalent of 8.80%
your dividend adjusted value per share would be $35.
Guess AGNC did not turn out to be such a bad investment after all.
no headaches, no sleepless nights, no erectile dysfunction.
he is too well spoken to be a govt worker. He uses the vocab of someone who must write a lot of papers...hence the student. He trolls many of the pharma MBs hence the pre-med or some bio-science major.
And he is not well liked anywhere ...check his history he gets an avg of 5-6 thumbs down everywhere he goes, on every post.
He is a student. My guess is that he is pre-med. He has no real life experience. This has been said on this board again and again. He was probably an only child- craves as he attention, and does not like it when someone else is getting it. (like DocReits) He only understands what he reads in books and what his professors and what MSNBC tells him. He's got nothing else to go on.
of course they are catching and locking up docs and nurses ...but they are not even making a dent in the problem yet. Here is a not made up fact : 8-10% fraud in the medical system.
1 doctor scamming $1 million from medicare takes the resources from tens of thousands of poor children( and there are thousands of doctors doing this).
1 bogus medical supply company scamming tens of millions takes resources of millions of deserving recipients.
Who is delusional now?
The nightmare of being poor in America is not having substandard housing, old clothes, and no healthcare.
The nightmare is having the not so poor robbing you of the resources. The people gaming the system, collecting disability, welfare and unemployment checks. The doctors and bogus medical supply companies ripping off medicare. Of course the other nightmare is the media and advertising convincing everyone here that they need a smartphone, a plasma TV ,a leased late model car and an Ipad. This is where capitalism fails. My friends in Europe could care less about having high end computers and phones. They want to spend time with their family-especially the elderly, have a picnic, drink a jug of local wine. That to them is success. That is happiness. They don't care as much about what others have. They are not as jealous of others possessions. Too much consumerism. The best things in life are free.
I am still lurking by less interested.
I liquidated 80% of my REIT holdings, still have some AGNC and MTGE.
The flamer has destroyed the AGNC board so I won't go there.
Is this where everyone comes now?
3-4 months at 4-5 times per day, changing logins 5-6 times per hour and posting 5-10 posts per session?
excellent. You must be proud. What an excellent use of one's time. You really got all the attention that you were craving. Good Job.
yet another person who cannot read.
daz said ANY mkt ETF would have made 50% in that period.
GLD was down 17% on total return in the same period.
I left this board because of the flame. Now I will leave because of stupidity.
