Change it to "Can't afford to pay the health insurance" and it sounds like the future of Obamacare...

From what I know, while being communist, the PRC doesn't offer universal health care.  Most people there don't even have health insurance.

Actually I can see that happening here, people use the ER as free healthcare because Reagan singed that law forcing to hospital ER's to treat everyone that comes in the door regardless of ability to pay, which is one of the reason healthcare is so high. So a person could cut off a limb and then go to the ER to get patched up and then ditch on the bill. But now with Obamacare hospitals can recoup some of the losses since in a few years most everybody will have some sort of health insurance driving hospital cost down.

Don't forget that in our pre-ObamaCare plan, the hospital could still sue you for everything you own; leaving you homeless and bankrupt. People against Obama care have some sort of brain deficiency.

I have a giant cell tumor grow back in my right middle finger, I'm guessing it is from using it so much while driving.  I have medical insurance, but it will cost me at least $1500 in co payments to get it removed a second time.  I asked the Dr to cut the finger off first time so I could give high-fours and he said no.  I've considered taking a machete to it and then using a hot butter knife on the stove element to carterize the end.  I've been told no on that one too.  So even with good insurance, it still costs way too much to get anything fixed.

What's going on in China has nothing to do with the US.

China doesn't have universal health care coverage. They have deeper extremes of poverty than a lot of other countries.

There was another story about a man who designed and built his own dialysis machine in China.

AFAIK there is no nation-wide social security in China -- you have to belong to certain groups to get it. I assume it's similar with health care.

That's the dirty little secret of US  healthcare.  Most personal bankruptcies in the US come about because people have medical debts they can't pay.  MOST OF THOSE PEOPLE HAD MEDICAL INSURANCE.In Murica, you can spend 30 years working, paying taxes and health care premiums.  Then if you you come down with a serious medical condition, like heart disease or cancer, you end up penniless and homeless.

The worst part is when your illness causes you to lose your job, which causes you to lose your insurance.

You can't really "ditch on the bill". They can still come after you like any other debt and go through collections, sue you, go after your assets. Its not free.

Well, you would actually declare bankruptcy which would somewhat protect you from this.  Of course bankruptcy has its own long lived side effects.

The majority of bankruptcies are medical expense related.

If you believe caring for the uninsured is the driving force behind health care costs I suggest you look at legal and malpractice insurance costs of being in the health care biz.. The Hospital is not charging you 10$ for an aspirin because of the uninsured in the ER.

Obamacare is not going to eliminate the uninsured problem.. Many will go ahead and pay the "tax" for not having insurance because it is cheaper than insurance

Not hardly , look at the population size, demographic and geographic differences.  You cannot simply up scale without regards to so many diverse cultural, economic  and geographic situations along withe current availability of healthcare resources (doctors, hospitals etc)

You honestly think that a system designed to meet the needs of people living in Chicago would work for those living in Wyoming or in Hawaii?  A state like Florida would have to have a system designed more towards the needs of the elderly while a State like Utah  (over 30% of population under 18) would need to allocate its resources elsewhere.

Something like this as with education would be best left to each individual state to finance and administer.
