You're also assuming people don't give a shit about their health enough to buy insurance if they don't already get it from their employers.

And don't even start with the "other" talking point about affordability, an individual can get full coverage in any state for less than $100 bucks a month, and if you are truly poor, you can get almost everything paid for via the ALREADY EXISTING Government programs.

But ya if you wanna gamble your life so you can instead buy all the other stupid shit people buy and don't need, that's your idiocy and not my responsibility. I count the health of me and my family as the #1 spot on my "budget" list.

Even with insurance getting cancer or some other terrible illness is going to take your finances to the brink unless you're very well off. For someone so reliant on anecdotal evidence you'd think someone you know would've experienced this. Also you must've heard during all your time analyzing cable news talking points that a major part of Obamacare was to reform the way insurance deals with pre-existing conditions... Because they were dropping people when they got sick. Even the opponents of Obamacare don't argue against that one anymore because saying, "I think insurance should be able to drop sick people when they get sick" is ridiculous.

But this stuff has already passed anyway, I don't really need to rehash the same debate with someone who still thinks everything was hunky-dory the way it was with nearly 50 million uninsured.

Entitlement much?

And seph, you certainly are the talking points guy, you won't find my real life experience in any news. Maybe YOU should have surgery in the military or in England, or maybe YOU should have a family with "responsibilities", or YOU should buy insurance -- real world might help adjust your boob tube vision on the subject.

Time for anecdotes yay!

My sister was studying abroad in Spain (my family is well off enough that she can do this) she was a young adult and a previously unknown mental illness manifested. She was alone and wandering the streets. The police took her to the hospital. There she received three weeks of excellent diagnosis and treatments not to mention the costs of just living at the hospital. Cost $0 (for a non-citizen too no less). She finally gets back home and receives care that while still great is not as good as what it was in Spain and despite having "good" insurance costs her and my parents thousands upon thousands of dollars.

That's it for me though, since despite being told that I don't watch TV you continue to bizarrely go on about my TV watching and use that like it's some sort of coup de grâce. Apparently I don't live in reality and don't have insurance and don't have family and friends and my anecdotal evidence is fantasy. The real fantasy here is that healthcare is just fine the way it is.
