    Would you accept a lower quality level of health care to save money?

    Would you accept a lower quality level of health care to save money?

    Obviously, this a nuanced question, but I could never hope to account for all the different types of situations. So I am going to ask the question generally.

    Likely not. I'm willing to sacrifice the quality of a great number of things to save money. My health is not one of them.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    We are already going to accept a lower quality of care, and it won't cost less.

    Nope, and I don't like paying more to have my health care rationed off to people I frankly don't think deserve it, thank you mister Obama.

    If some uninsured, unemployed douche has to die because I tore my rotator cuff, bummer for him. He can be a poster boy for decisions made in life.

    For some things I would, and for others I wouldn't. Honestly, I think in some cases in the US, we're given a lot higher level of health care than we really need.

    Having to pay a copay doesn't sit well with me - I don't have to go to the Dr often but when I do it seems to fall on the times when I just don't have the money to fork out.

    So I haven't gone to a Dr for countless years - or a dentist for that matter.

    No. My usefulness to those around me, as well as my quality of life, is directly proportional to the state of my health.

    Being as i have yet to chalk up $10k for a three day health screen @ the Mayo or Cleveland clinics, the only honest answer is yes.

    Americans (myself included) do so every day.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Nope. Most things flow from a healthy body.
