If you don't like being forced to carry health insurance, I assume you had enough funds to cover any health mishap no matter how expensive while you did that?

Or were planning to sponge off society if you got super sick or in a bad accident?

Fact is, if you don't carry health insurance, you're telling me you're just a potential thief. How is that any better than blaming the government for forcing you to pay for it?



Dangerous precedent indeed.

Government force over-regulates a certain industry so much so that it becomes unaffordable. People decide we need a little bit more government force to fix the problem.

I had plenty of money to cover just about any health issue. It would have have had to go well into 6 figures to be a problem. I don't ask for or need money from anyone. Try again.

6 figures is not that hard to achieve with a serious illness.

100,000

I spent 10k on a ambulance ride and one overnight stay in the Cardiac care unit.

Besides that why should I trust you or anyone else that they have the funds. That doesn't work for business. I rent a car, they make sure I cover the cost of it if I wreck it, not just on my word. No reason it works for this either.

My Mom passed away after emergency surgery failed hours after being taken to the hospital. Her final hospital bill, which was for about eight hours, came to almost $161,000. The stay before that was almost two weeks, including time in intensive care, and was over $223,000. Thanks to Tri Care For Life, her out of pocket in both cases was nothing. Just a point of information here- my family did have to pay to remove her body. Hospitalization evidently dies with the person.

I can almost guarantee you that you will experience a medical episode that will run you six figures. What you are really gambling is that such an event doesn't happen until you hit 65 and are eligible for Medicare. That's not a bet I would make, but your choice.

That argument should also be made agains social security insurance / annuity that everyone is forced to buy as well. I wonder how it would go over if Trump tried to end that tax/welfare

And no one was ever forced to buy Obamacare. I never did. And the only penalty was that the government gave me complimentary health insurance



Easy to like something when you are on the receiving end of teet getting it for free. Explains a lot actually.

Does Max pay for his own health care or does he get it through his employer?

The government's job shouldn't be to provide or force health care/insurance to its citizens. It's not something that requires government intervention, so government should stay the **** out of it.

Plus, look at places like Europe and Canada....do we REALLY want to follow their lead? Lolol that was rhetorical.

I said I went a year and a half without coverage. I didn't say I don't have coverage now. I just refused to pay the ridiculous $440 a month for a high deductible plan. I knew I would be getting health insurance again. I took a Gamble knowing that I had money to cover anything but the worst case scenario..

Hasnít the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the ACA twice now?

Gotta love those activist Texas judges!
