Look, shit head, if you want to have that attitude, then wear a big wrist band that says "DO NOT PROVIDE ME WITH MEDICAL CARE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES". Add something about religious beliefs or some such nonsense so that when you get in an accident/get seriously sick/have a heart attack/whatever, you aren't forced into participating in the health care system to which you do not want to contribute.
The difference here between health care and auto insurance is that you can opt out of owning a vehicle and driving and not increase the cost for the rest of us. You can't opt out of ever getting sick or injured or otherwise needing medical attention for your entire lifetime. Society generally will not allow you to bleed to death on the side of the road just because you refused to pay for health insurance (or pay the fine/tax imposed by the new law). So whether you like it or not, you *are* participating in the health care system, and you *are* being a selfish asshole for refusing to acknowledge that.
And irony of ironies, getting yourself thrown in prison for refusing to pay for health care (or aforementioned fine/tax) provides you with a government-paid health care plan.
Really ??? Look shithead!? Listen stupid fucking troll, some of us must pay out the ass for medical insurance, only to be denied coverage due to "pre existing" condition. The whole fucking thing is rigged. Now, not only am I required to pay for this so called insurance, my medical bills are also my responsibility. I get it, for a lot of people this is a good thing...yay insurance coverage!! What good does it do me? None!!! Seems to me a way for some fucking company to profit from my labor giving me nothing in return. So i no longer pay for insurance. Seems to save me some of my hard earned money.
