No prexsisting conditions and no limits on getting insurance. Why pay at all? Just sign up when you are sick and drop it when you are not.

There will reach a point where I am paying extra so that he can pay less and live that way. That can and will be a problem at some point. People will demand that others not be covered in those situations or that they pay more. There are countries with so called universal care who won't treat you for certain conditions if you are fat. These are things we need to be aware of going in. Those who push for these kinds of changes want to pretend that everyone will be covered with the best treatment in every situation. That just isn't correct.
It's been that way for years: My gal's office got really pissed when they found out the cost of their insurance was gonna go up because one of the employees had diabetes. This was 10 years ago.

And this will inevitably lead to State control and regulation of other personal choices on the basis that saving money is more important than your rights to choose.

Those were the good old days.

Now that Obamacare is implementing and turning into Obummercare, have all of those people "run the numbers" after considering all this:
