What difference does it make? A person could get cancer due to corporate environmental contamination, suffer side affects from drugs made by the drug companies, many people who never smoked or drank and lived healthy lives ended up with cancer. There are no guarantees in life. Makes no sense to single out a group.<quoted text>
As it was before the ACA I (with a capital I) was being forced to pay for smoker's healthcare with no recourse. At least now they can contribute more to the cost. So is it better for me to pay for someone else's bad decisions or have that someone pay for their own bad decisions?
This is why we need universal single payer healthcare paid through taxation. Everyone treated the same.
My ex brother in law in Canada is recovering from surgery in a rehab center that costs him $14.00 a day, when he goes home, they'll provide home care and housekeeping help, and do grocery shopping!! What a civilized country. Here that would cost at least $10-15,000 a month.
