    This then eliminates the 'problem' you described.

    This isn't a pro-union thread. Your attempt to link states that protect its citizens from union extortion and insurance coverage has no basis in fact.
    Proof?

    Either way. The problem for us is that bleeding hearts will describe this as "inhumane." And, hospitals may be unwilling to take this step due to liability concerns.

    Then we're in the same rock/hard place situation.

    They are free to give to charity, should their moral compass so dictate.

    Normally, the 'bleeding hearts' are the first to argue that a moral compass cannot be forced onto others; if this is a true belief, they would then oppose forcing people to pay for the health care costs of others.

    Health insurance is not available to me and is cost prohibitive for pay for on it's own. I pay all medical dental etc out of pocket, right now it's the cheapest form of healthcare I can get.

    I just hope I continue to be healthy.

    And I work.

    I'll wait for you to provide some proof of your claim first. Pretty cheeky of you to make a claim with no basis in fact or any kind of proof, then demand proof from everyone else.

    Those who think they don't need insurance are either very wealthy, or have never had to pay for chemo, brain surgery, etc.....

    My son has excellent insurance, a private policy, for his wife and kids. His employer covers him for free, but they want around $10K per year to extend coverage to his family. So he found a company that only wants about half that amount.

    His oldest child has had 2 brain tumors, one was removeable, the other is still there.
    She is now 10 years old and has had chemo since she was 7.
    The policy pays 100% after the deductible of $1500 per year per person.
    If it was an 80/20 plan, the 20% alone would bankrupt them.

    People who think they don't need insurance are relying on the taxpayers among us to cover their medical needs. This is NOW, not after UHC....

    If this is the case, then it IS available to you, you just cannot pay for it.
    "Cannot pay for it" does not mean "Unavailable"

    Me too.

    Me too.
    I know people, with children, who say that they cannot afford it, but they seem to live well and have all the modern conveniences.
    Even their uninsured kids have cell phones !!!

    Its all about priorities.
    If you choose cable TV and internet over health insurance, then you get what you deserve.
