Explaining the Legalese of the US Supreme Court's Ruling on the Affordable Care Act ~ pj - Updated
Authored by: cjk fossman on Tuesday, July 03 2012 @ 03:29 PM EDT
I agree that health insurance is part of the problem, but
it's not the whole problem. There are other contributors,
such as

- doctor salaries
- unnecessary tests and procedures
- over-investment in expensive equipment
- our self-indulgent lifestyle. At one time the USA had the
tallest population on earth. Now we have the most obese.

A few other points ...

If there's nothing in the estate, a claim against the estate
doesn't do much good. If there are multiple claims that
exceed the value of the estate, creditors only get a share
of what's left.

Health Insurance companies fought tooth and nail against the
affordable health care act. I'm guessing you could add up
their contributions to Obama's 2012 campaign on a might tiny
piece of paper.

And if that estate cannot pay the bill? Guess who ends up
paying for those uninsured - you and me through taxes and
increased insurance rates. What about if you are injured in
a car accident, end up in a coma for extended period of time?
Guess what - you still get treatment (to the tune of multiple
100's of thousands of dollars) BEFORE you can be verified and
charged. Guess who pays?
