One thing I haven't seen fleshed out in all the discussions is what happens/who pays when a person without insurance, who has paid the government penalty, seeks medical services and doesn't or can't pay. Are hospitals and doctors now entitled to bill the federal government for the costs of those services since the federal government is in effect collecting a "premium" from them? Or are the hospitals and providers going to have to sue the government for payment?
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
“Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”
: The thing most puzzling to me is the attitude of those in DC, who seem to think that things can go on as they are indefinitely. They seem to think they will not be part of what's heading our way...have they established a colony on Mars or something? What good is it to amass huge sums of money if said money is worthless at some point? There are too many historical examples, to suit me, of what things could be like in the near future. The book that was made into a movie "The Road" was one of the scariest I have ever read, only because the scenario is way too possible!
