    Yes... and this is a -voluntary- association that I -choose- to pay into, knowing that I may -never- see the money I paid in.

    Thus, you're arguing apples and oranges.

    Still doesn't change the fact that insurance is people using other peoples money. FYI people do not voluntarily get sick.

    Yes... and the people in that insurance pool have a right to that money due to the contract pursuant to the policy.

    So, your responses here do nothing to address my statement or answer my questions.

    Isn't our healthcare system currently privately operated? Then how will Obama overhaul something he is not in charge of? It seems the private sector has to overhaul it.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Through its ever-expanding use of the interstate commerce clause, the federal government can 'overhaul' pretty much any industry it wants.
