Newcomers to Bermuda, including those from the United Kingdom, should note there is no equivalent in Bermuda to the UK's National Health Service (NHS), the publicly funded healthcare system, the largest and the oldest single-payer healthcare system in the world, able to function in the way it does because it is primarily funded through the general taxation system.The system provides healthcare to anyone legally resident in the United Kingdom, with most services free at the point of use.But before such reform can proceed, Congress must ask itself: With respect to each crime, is justice best served by having legislatures assign fixed penalties to that crime?Or should legislatures leave judges more or less free to tailor sentences to the aggravating and mitigating facts of each criminal case within a defined range?The current Republican bill to repeal and replace major parts of Obamacare will lead to 23 million fewer Americans with health insurance coverage by 2026 if it becomes law, the Congressional Budget Office projected Wednesday.

Older people would still pay much more for their insurance under the GOP bill, up to 10 times as much as the premiums that would be paid by young adults, and more than nine times what they would pay if Obamacare staying in place, CBO said.Average premiums in states that did not request those waivers would be about 4 percent lower than under the current law by 2026, and about 20 percent lower in areas containing one-third of the U. The agency also said that starting in 2020, the individual insurance markets in areas in the United States containing one-sixth of the nation's population would "start to become unstable" because of the bill. "Over time, it would become more difficult for less healthy people (including people with preexisting medical conditions) in those states to purchase insurance because their premiums would continue to increase rapidly," the report said.
