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


How could this NOT be applied to our previous state of affairs when even fewer people could afford it?

A chainsaw would've been a step up.

Fissile: bluenovaman: 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.

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.

dennysgod: 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.
