Without insurance only the wealthy would be able to afford medical care. That's why millions of the poor & elderly died before Medicare & Medicaid.I can see your reasoning, It's stupid, but I see it! My pet peeve is the need for Ins, no matter who pays for it. I don't have plumbers Ins for the plumbing./ I dopn't have mechanic's Ins for when the car breaks down. Why do I need it for medicine? Simple, With Ins, The Drs have been able to raise their prices to unprecedented heights. To gain this much would have been impossible without it. I long for a return to the days when there was no ins! Not more and more complicated schemes that would presumably cost me less, until the AMA negotiates higher rates and my taxes go up again. Take all my health care away from this most corrupt of governments!
My President was elected by dead people!
Our life expectancy has gone up significantly because more people can afford healthcare.
We realize the GOPasaurs want to go back to the "good old days" where the poor & elderly had one option- die quickly.
