Universal healthcare reform misleading in description and effects

This reform needs to be retweaked. Not only does it massively increase PE health, but it also massively decrease the acquisition tax. Before the reform, Juni had way over 2 trillion acquisition revenues, now it's barely over 1.5 trillion. In the reform's description there is no mentioning of decreasing the acquisition tax (obligatory insurances). Either the description should be changed, or this effect of lowering the acquisition tax should be eliminated. I launched this reform with the prospect of making a certain deficit, I've been mislead, and the newly resulted deficit is twice what I expected. I'm really cheesed off about it, because I had Juni's budget under control with no social austerity, no cuts and no tax increases. Now I can't rely on economic growth to shrink my huge deficit, I'll have to raise taxes, cut spending or both... damnation.... Sad

PS: Those who bought Juni stock, sell it NOW!!! DUMP IT ALL!!!

RE: Universal healthcare reform misleading in description and effects

I think its normal that the acquisition tax drops because it contains the health insurance contributions for the statutory health insurance. But its a problem, that the player don't know what the previous system is and how the funding works. Only with those information its possible to know, that the tax will drop.

Thanks for the information to sell the Juni stocks, but ich will keep my 40 stocks, because i think that this state will even more grow despite such the deficit.

The reform's description is misleading, because it gives the impression that you're saving a little. The reason why I think, that the obligatory insurance shouldn't drop, is because everyone is going to pay that contribution, since it's universal, everyone gets the full options. If any, the acquisition tax should increase, in order to help finance the new health care system, via an increase in obligatory insurances.
I appreciate your vote of confidence in the stocks you've purchased, but I'm restarting the state, and next time I won't be doing universal health care, nor privatized health care. SELL THE STOCK NOW, then you can buy more stocks in the new restarted state. Wink

Haha, reminds me of when I had Goat and I implemented basic income thinking I was TOTALLY making enough money only to go bankrupt and kicked out of office two days later.

And no private health care nor universal? What kind of health care are you planning on using? Shamans?

Hehe I burned myself in the past with enhanced basic income. For some unknown reason it cripples your popularity, not to mention your budget.
As for health care, I will simply manage it via tasks and budget changes.

Hmm. The game is written from German perspective, and we consider it normal to pay a lot of taxes for healthcare - which is modeled as part of the acquisition taxes, in Ars Regendi. Universal healthcare means free healthcare for everyone, that's why employed persons and the employers no longer have to spend money on it. At least not directly, the costs are covered by PE Health - which is paid by everyone's general taxes.

That said, I inserted some hint into the text.

You should also cut out the "saving money" part out of the description and replace it with "lowering bureaucracy". Because the reform doesn't save any money to the budget, but it does reduce bureaucracy a little.

Hmm, it's more clear in the German version, there was some translation loss. I modified the text a bit.

Of course the lowered administration effort does save money, but increased healthcare add much more to overall costs...
