When will the world learn that a million men are of no importance compared with one man? [Henry David Thoreau]

We will all die one day.First of all, you won't die... stop being so dramatic.
What do you mean by that, exactly? Please explain.Second, you have nothing to lose.
Oh, so when middle-class people cannot afford their excellent insurance, that's a BIG problem, OMG, but when poor and working class people can't afford ANY insurance, it's not a big deal, I mean hey, what do they have to lose anyways, right.The real issue with healthcare right now is people with assets who cannot afford $700-800/month for decent insurance, can lose everything they've worked to get.
So then why having a real health insurance for us be a problem then, if we're already treated for free, as you say?If you have nothing, you lose nothing and you'll still be covered by community hospitals.
I mean that middle class people can lose their life savings if they rack up $100,000s of debt in hospital bills because of accident, major health issues etc. Your average person can afford to pay cash for doctor visits and any testing that doctor recommends even if they don't have health insurance. It's not perfect but it's doable. People are not being denied service. Any person with assets who is in the middle class income bracket is the person who suffers because if they don't have or can't afford insurance, they can lose everything. People walk away from hospital bills all the time, in fact all of us pay for that. It is when that person is trackable (citizen vs. non-illegal) and has assets that they are screwed. Not difficult to understand.
Community hospitals don't and can't deny service. You may have a negative credit report if you don't pay them, but they can't take anything if you don't have assets.
