Ok , enuf with the Canadians!
what about you? You're either 1) fully insured or 2) destitute
in either case, you get taken care of. If not , it's: 1) well, I (or my wife, or my 3 year old) ain't doing so poorly, let's wait and see. 2) #,
i ( or spouse etc.)really ought to see a doctor, but damn! can i afford 100 or so for the office visit plus a hundred more for meds? (and if you're
asking yourself, the answer is probably not) or 3) I'm gonna die! take me to the emergency room, i'll give a fake name, i'll pay i don't care!
And those are all the choices you have! Sure you can be honest and try to "buy" affordable health insurance. if you're under 30, healthy as a
horse and with no dependants, you might even be able to. But what about the others who have those treacherous pre-existing conditons, or who have the
gall to develop asthma, heart problems; etc? or, even, worse, who produce imperfect children who are not readily insurable? Health care in a
civilizd country is not a fringe benefit of a cushy job! it's a fundamental right: we all pay income taxes according to our revenues; why not the
same system for health insurance, IT WORKS!
