I appreciate your concern, but those other people were likely over the 4X poverty limit line. If that were the case, I would have no choice but to get any kind of insurance. I'm several thousand dollars under that line so even with the new money in my paycheck, I'll still qualify for free treatment.<quoted text>
Hmm... Using that logic, you could cancel your home owner's insurance and have more money in your pocket, too.
Just make sure that you will not be wiped out financially by a hospital stay. I've seen it happen to others, and I don't want to see it happen to you.
Besides, my plan is to pay off a lot of bills with this new money and if Commie Care is still around next year, I can then sign up for it during the enrollment period and get a half-way decent plan. I'm not going to live like this forever. I don't like "free" care provided to me by anybody. I'm used to earning what I have.
