There are those that are suing the government over the new health care law. They don't want the government making them buy coverage. All I have to say is don't expect to "have your cake and eat it too". I don't like the new health care law either, but I like the prospect of no health care even less.
In this country people expect to walk into a hospital and get care - money, insurance or not. We expect to not be turned away. This puts a huge burden on the system. A burden that hospitals make up by charging people with health care $10 for an aspirin.
So, to those that don't want to buy health insurance, I say this: "Don't buy it." Carry a card or wear a wrist band stating that you refuse health care no matter what your condition or carry large amounts of cash as a down payment on care. If you don't want to pay for it, why should you get it. Why should I and every other taxpayer wind up paying your debt if you get sick or injured just because you don't want your rights infringed upon? If you don't want to get insurance coverage or pay for care upfront then the hospital should dump your ass on the sidewalk.
Plenty say "I'm healthy, I don't need health insurance." However, at some point everyone gets sick. With all the complaining about mandatory insurance from the "tea-baggers", I've never once heard one of them explain what they plan to do when they get sick. Are there any "tea-baggers" ready to die for their cause? That's what might happen to some unlucky sop who got sick if I made the rules - No money, no insurance, no care.
