I hate to tell you this, but

I hate to tell you this, but you already DO pay for people that cannot pay, only it is in the most expensive place- the ER. Along with it being the most expensive, multiple tests are given because the patients that cannot afford care do not routinely see the same doctor. We all pay for that in higher costs. That is an economically silly way to deliver care and have the rest of us pick up the tab. Secondly, you also highly subsidize government employees and their families. You also kick in extra taxes to make up the short fall on the tax breaks big business receives to provide insurance for their employees. Additionally, you also pay higher premiums with lower coverage (unless you are a government employee or work for a large corporation). I also want to make an extremely important point about how people are locked to their jobs due to insurance. That puts a serious dent in our ability to produce entrepreneurs in this country. Small businesses are the backbone to this country and we are being drowned in rising health care costs. I understand that so many like to pretend politics is a big football game, but the reality is, we are in serious trouble. I really wish that people would talk to the small business owners around town and learn how bad it truly is out there.
