Yes, I am uninsured. And if and when I have/had insurance, it is by choice, which means I would accept being part of a risk pool. Difference with the government is that I have no choice when they decide to steal more money from my paycheck.So you keep saying but it is a meaningless statement- that is how the system functions unless you are self-pay. Are you uninsured? Then, only then, you are paying for yourself alone...at a premium.
Yup. But they can't pass laws that affect everyone in the country. The government can.NO. Corporations can and do, reward people with healthy habits and penalize people with unhealthy habits. They can and do deny health insurance to people for all kinds of reasons.
The government shouldn't be subsidizing anything.Meanwhile, you are the guy who does not want to pay for H.C. for anyone but yourself. Why should MY health insurance premiums (or yours) reflect the health care costs of all the fat couch potatoes that clog the H.C. system? Gov't will never ban junk food but isn't it about time they stop subsidizing the consumption of toxic material?
