I have health insurance through my employer. I have had health insurance on and off for all of my life. When I had it, I rarely used it, and when i
didn't have it, I paid cash.
There are approximately 300 million people in the US right now. At $20 a pop, that would be $6 billion. Can you give me some stats on what is spent
today for health care by Americans per month? I bet it's over $6 billion. And can you give me some sort of assurance that the total spent will stay
under $6 billion after everyone can run to the emergency room for a cold? As soon as you can give me that amount and assurance, I'll gladly donate
$20 a month to the cause. I'm not writing a blank check, however. $20 now does not equal $2000 later in my
And I pay a little under $100 a week for family right now.
edit to add: Good points above that health insurance does not equal healthcare. Also good points concerning why healthcare is so expensive. If you'll
take a look here
, I have some ideas about healthcare that I think makes Hillary's
'plan' look like a total joke.
