I have car insurance, live insurance, health insurance, boat insurance, insurance if I get into an accident, insurance for my insurance....and I pay for all of it.
Health Care became a business a long time ago, this drove the cost of everything up. Sadly, treating sick people was no longer the greater cause for good. So now, we are paying the penalty of a lack of regulation.
I think the lack of knowledge over this AFA is part of the problem. You already are paying a tax for Medicaid/Medicare. Have a firm look at your paycheck, retirement check etc. This just affirms if someone is fiscally able to buy insurance, they should. If they don't then they have to contribute more because living with no insurance is not exactly a good idea.
I'd rather see everyone have the opportunity to seek health care then turn my shoulder and affirm that its not my problem.
