    I suppose you will also be happy when some president down the line says , "your grand kids must pay for internet access or pay a fine " or they must pay for a car , or pay for rubbers or ect.

    I'm smart enough to realize (unlike you) that everyone needs healthcare, you don't need a car. You don't need to have sex. You don't need internet. It's the broccoli argument. It makes no sense and you just sound foolish making it.

    Then why do insurance companies accept healthy people and decline people with preexisting conditions?

    You obviously don't know how health care works. Basically, you give money so that when you DO get sick, it won't cost as much as $50,000,000.

    That is the dumbest statement ever. Why do people who drive need car insurance then? They might not get in an accident, they need if something happens, everyone will go to the hospital or to a doctor in their lifetime.

    I know they get broke, but that's because they have a lazy fatass job. Either that, or the health care is bad.

    Because insurance is just that ... an agreement to insure against the cost of a FUTURE need. A person with a preexisting condition has an immediate need, and they should have gotten their insurance before their health problem arose. When you go to an insurance company with a preexisting condition and expect them to cover your medical expenses for only the cost of usual insurance premiums, you're effectively saying you should only have to pay a small fraction of the actual cost of your medical care and someone else should pay all the rest. That's why, in the longterm, this socialized medicine scheme, along with the cost of all the other entitlement programs that take from the productive parts of society and give to the leeches in exchange for votes, will result in the US defaulting on its debt.

    I know how these topics can spin out of control, so I'll only say this once.

    If I see any flaming, name calling, or general assholishness, this topic will be locked and the offenders warned, and depending on the severity, suspended as well.
