I get what you are saying, but it is different.
car insurance is mainly for THE OTHER person whom I may injure or damage the property of.
Health insurance is for ME. I shouldnt have to get it if I have a death wish, feel that medical treatment is against gods wishes or if I just hate
everyone and wish to see them fend for themselves.
It is a product that I dont want. I would rather spend the money eating right, resting where I can and enjoying life. IMO that makes me live longer,
better and most importantly HEALTHIER.
I dont give a damn if people have the same priorities. They are free to them like I am to mine.
I didnt even have health insurance before. I NEVER needed it. I live healthy. Its wrong to make me pay for the poor choices of others. I dont care if
we all would pay less if we all would join up. I dont want to pay at all for health insurance, and that is PERFECTLY moral, fine and correct for me to
IF I get health insurance like a rational adult would with a family, I would like to do so based on MY needs, not a society I dont get to control as
far as their health choices.
EDIT TO ADD:
What I am going to do is pay like I have always in the US for minor things and if I get something serious I will go to Europe where I have dual
citizenship and already pay into that system through taxes there.
If we had taken a model from another country like France, the UK or anywhere that actually worked I would be all for it.
This is a power grab and an insurance bail out. Its a RETARDED model and I refuse to validate it. Its the WORST type of public health care system. Its
not even a public health care system. Its monopoly building. If I was a politician I would go after it under the old anti trust laws.
