I don't need health insurance because the hospitals are required by law to treat me whether I am insured or not. They should not be, but they are. So long as they are required to treat me even if I don't pay, I see no reason to pay, so I don't. That makes me one of the however many "victims" that the government wants to "save" by instituting health care rationing. Sorry, not interested. How about this as an alternative: Stop forcing hospitals to treat me if I don't carry insurance, and I'll buy insurance. Seems fair to me. digg story
"Universal Coverage" sounds nice and fuzzy. How could anyone object to "Universal Coverage"? I object. I do not object to "Universal Coverage" if it occurs naturally -- if everyone in America decides that health insurance is a good idea, and decides to go out and buy it of their own accord, I don't have a problem with it. But it's not going to happen. Why not? Because many of us, myself included, do not need health insurance.
