Nightmare? $1000.00? What do you think it costs the taxpayer NOW to fix someone who is too cheap to buy health ins?
1000 bucks is nothing. The bigger question is...and this is the one nobody brings up, what is the policy on health care? If a US
citizen has a right to health care then the gov has a mandate to make it available. If it is not, then it does not. Right now,
a few pay for many......not working. So, what is it to be? If you can afford it you live? If you can not you die? That would be
fair, no doubt. Do you want to live in a country that has people die in the streets? I do not have the ans, but I am not afraid
of gov getting involved. For me, I pay hard and it is getting OLD. I have no problem with a market system, or a gov system.
But it has to be one or the other. What we have now is people paying stupid( ME), and people paying nothing(many). Well the
truth of the matter is the people paying are at the end of the rope. $1000? How about if you do not have insurance, you do not
get care........tuff luck. My health premiums(private) probably cover 10 more people who pay nothing. Go private or go public, ultimately it will not matter. What we have now, private covering costs for public is about to fail hard. It is not fair,
it is unsustainable and it is over. Let them die, or cover them all, what do want?
