Low income people should not have insurance. They should be treated for free.

It's high time insurance companies stop leeching off the low income class. Provided these people have a legitimate reason to have low income, such as unemployment rather than being satisfied with welfare without trying to find employment, these people should be treated at hospitals for free. There should be a new law that says doctors cannot turn away low income patients provided these people are in such condition out of their control, such as being laid off, and they are trying their best to find employment. Doctors are supposed to be public servants like professors. Doctors should be put on fixed government income of 100,000 a year the same as professors get, rather than charging patients on a treatment basis of 1 charge per treatment. This is basic decency and morality. There should also be a new law that bars private for profit insurance companies from gambling with people's lives and health.

How about unifying under the banner that healthcare is too expensive and is in no way proportionate to the care received?

NOTHING is free.
EVERYTHING must be paid for.

what the OP means, I think, is 'poor people should get health care paid for by rich people'.

My thoughts exactly.

Or how about we all admit that health problems are a lie and a forced consequence in a fake world with limitation and rules based on keeping a proper balance?

Then maybe we can all move on and make everything better and not debate such nonsense.

actually money is meaningless, everything is free until you decide it has monetary value. This is how society is contained and how humanity is restricted. We are so greedy and self absorbed that we need money to govern us.

The doctors signed up to be public servants. They have a moral responsibility to treat the unfortunate. 100,000 annual government salary is enough for them.

That's why I suggested doctors be paid like professors are. A fixed government salary rather than paid on a per treatment basis.

No. I suggested a new law that mandates doctors treat the unfortunate for free.

I beg to differ. 'public servant' means government employee.
Doctors are trained professionals and often self-employed; or employed with other doctors at a clinic.

I understand the Hippocratic Oath dictates a doctor must help any patient. I think many tell impoverished patients to just go to the emergency room.

How about we forget about health insurance altogether, and let the payment be worked out between the doctor and patient.

Doctors are public servants just like professors. Professors are government paid. So should doctors.

That's what I suggested. A new law that bars private insurance companies from gambling with people's lives and health. They are out there to make money for themselves at everyone else's expense. They are not needed.

Doctors should have a fixed annual government salary. Nothing to work out between doctor and patient.

It is unless the department of health and human services is abolished. This department has an annual budget in the trillions. Enough to pay each doctor 100 grand annual salary and mandate low income people be treated free of charge.

What if they are "laid-off", but live in an $800,000 home? ObamaCare Medicaid only looks at income. People in these situations are already "taken care of".

If they live in an 800 grand house, but if they are laid off, then they are in a dire situation, so they should be treated for free.
