    I'll get healthcare as soon as I am physically capable of it. My state is fighting the Medicaid expansion.

    Sign up for medicaid since you have no income...............
    Just think that with each person that signs up for medicaid you add a drain to the system. I wonder if you get it back by having a person sign up for healthcare. I doubt it.

    Should a person with a net worth of $400 pay $400 a month for health insurance to protect their assets?
    Should a person with a net worth of $10,000 pay $400 a month for health insurance to protect their assets?
    Should a person with a net worth of $500,000 pay $400 a month for health insurance to protect their assets?

    If your answer is yes to all, I will understand your position. If you answer no to any of these please fill in an appropriate dollar amount for X in the following statement.

    A person with a net worth of X should pay $400 a month for health insurance to protect their assets.

    There are varying levels of insurance both health and car. Feds and States set minimum requirements. You want more coverage you will pay more. A persons net worth should not play a role.

    Bottom line, for the same coverage, we all should pay the same premium.

    Not many people would pay $400 to protect $400 in assets. Lots of people would pay $400 a month to protect $500,000 in assets. Insurance is a product designed to take on a risk that the consumer is unwilling to take. Many broke people are willing to take the risk of losing their net worth. Many wealthy people aren't willing to take the risk of losing their net worth.

    What do you think insurance is designed to do? Net worth is the only factor that matters. (Sorry, there is no face for super duper confused.)

    What is a life worth if the person has:
    a net worth of $400
    net worth of $10,000
    net worth of $500,000 ?

    Why should one person who is worth more pay more for the same level of health care insurance than someone who has less?

    Insurance is about money. Health care is the thing the doctor does. I'm talking about the insurance policy that is sold by the slimey salesman. If you don't understand that insurance is a financial product then I am incapable of having a conversation with you.

    I've already had health insurance through my work for years now. I figured they offer it, so I may as well take advantage of it.

    Drain to the system is the F-35 and the MIC as a whole. Drain to the system is $700B to bail out bad investments from rich people............

    $2000 a year for HC for some poor person, is not a "drain" on the system.
