I pay for them no matter if they have ins. or not. The difference is how you label my payments.
The overwhelming majority as you call it don't have insurance because of choice . Only about 6M out of 30M are truely unable to afford or get insurance and that isn't an over whelming majority ( except in LEFTY speak ).
You are right ,they seem to have money for cigrettes, beer and cell phones. I've noticed that people standing in line at the food pantry have a cell phone and are smoking.

The difference being you & I pay MORE when the people are uninsured, because insurance companies negotiate fees with every hospital/practitioner. They agree to accept those reduced fees in return for a guaranteed reimbursement from the insurance company.

Just look at your ACTUAL bill from the hospital. If you have no insurance you are charged 2-10 times the amount for the exact same prodecure/test/etc than if you have insurance.

So when an uninsured person goes to the ER for all their healthcare, the hospitals have to either eat those costs or pass it on to the rest of us by raising prices for all insured individuals.

That's why an individual mandate is necessary; or lacking that, hospitals & doctors need to be able to refuse treatment/services to any uninsured patient without full payment in advance, even in emergencies.

I agree, which is why I support laws allowing hospitals & doctors to be able to refuse service to any uninsured person without payment in full at the time services are rendered, including and especially emergency room services.

Nope, you're paying for uninsured people with your insurance premiums.

That's part of it ,however when the government dictates to the hospitals and doctors how much they can charge the government for medicaid patients,then doctors and hospitals pass it on to people with insurance .This costs the insurance companys more ,so they charge more for their policys.

Barack didn't care about the debate. He walked off the floor immediately after the debate leaving his podium empty.

BARACK EXPECTS THE MEDIA TO SCRAMBLE AND DEFEND HIM. WHY BOTHER TRYING IF EVERY LIE OR INACTION IS IMMEDIATELY COVERED UP BY THE MEDIA SHILLS?

The media like Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, Hollywood, DESERVE their emotional breakdown and embarassment after the debate.

ABC even tried to show Barack's shot of his head larger and taller than Mitt Romney, when in reality side by side, Mitt is taller and larger.

Saw also a lot of tweets from youth criticizing Mitt for his appearance which means they were busy coming up with tweets rather than listening. One teen honestly tweeted he WASN'T SURE ALL OF A SUDDEN ABOUT OBAMA. The rest were foul mouthed ignorants following their peers like a stampeding herd.

After the debate finished and listen to responses fully, the grown ups started tweeting their support for Mitt.

Today media are full out trying to defend Barack with LIES AGAIN. Ignore.

Evidently, not only is the CHAIR EMPTY but so was last night's PODIUM. Barack abandoned it immediately after the debate.

It was the poorest job interview seen in public. Barack doesn't care. He won't care to put food on the table for these idiot poor who are shilling for him. The debt is past code red and HE OWES BIG ALREADY TO HIS 2012 DONORS.

Which is why we need Medicare are all. That way there will be limits on the cost of all care for everyone.

Well folks in November you have a choice to make, If you actually adore HUGE Government you have already made up your mind to vote for the Obama, But if you question the agenda of Big Government , Then you have a discussion to make now. If you believe that our public schools have been taken over by radical union members, if you believe our Government has been taken over by radical progressives, Then you have already decided to vote for Romney.

Thought you might be interested in this forgotten bit of
information.......... It was 1987!
At a lecture the other day they were playing an old news video of Lt.Col. Oliver North testifying at the Iran-Contra hearings during the Reagan Administration. There was Ollie in front of God and country getting the third degree, but what he said was stunning! He was being drilled by a senator,'Did you not recently spend close to $60,000 for a home security system?' Ollie replied,'Yes, I did, Sir.' The senator continued, trying to get a laugh out of the audience,'Isn't that just a little excessive?''No, sir,' continued Ollie.'No? And why not?' the senator asked.'Because the lives of my family and I were threatened, sir.''Threatened? By whom?' the senator questioned.'By a terrorist, sir' Ollie answered.'Terrorist? What terrorist could possibly scare you that much?''His name is Osama bin Laden, sir' Ollie replied. At this point the senator tried to repeat the name, but couldn't pronounce it, which most people back then probably couldn't. A couple of people laughed at the attempt. Then the senator continued. Why are you so afraid of this man?' the senator asked.'Because, sir, he is the most
evil person alive that I know of', Ollie answered.'And what do you recommend we do about him?' asked the senator.'Well, sir, if it was up to me, I would recommend that an assassin team be formed to eliminate him and his men from the face of theearth.' The senator disagreed with this approach, and that was all that was shown of the clip. By the way, that senator was Al Gore! Also: Terrorist pilot Mohammad Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 1986. The Israelis captured, tried and
imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo agreement with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to release so-called 'political prisoners.'
However, the Israelis would not release any with blood on their hands. The American
President at the time, Bill Clinton,
and his Secretary of State, Warren Christopher,
'insisted' that all prisoners be released. Thus Mohammad Atta was freed and eventually thanked us by flying an airplane into Tower One of the World Trade Center . This was reported
by many of the American TV networks at the time that the terrorists were first identified.
It was censored in the US from all later reports.
If you agree that the public should be made
aware of this fact, pass this on.
