And now I am vindicated in print by this informative article at NEWSMAX: PROOF: Health Insurance is the PROBLEM, not the solution!
I wrote this in 2007, and still stand by it today:
From M-J’s Miscellany at Elegant Survival, 2011: And, since when is it a “liberal” thing to enforce supporting giant corporations–insurance companies– who exploit people’s illnesses? Automotive insurance for one’s own car is not mandatory. My twenty-year old car is not covered, but has the required liability insurance in case it hits something. Anyone who believes that “insuring” one’s health constitutes “health-care” needs a check-up from the neck up. Read my piece to understand why medical treatment costs are now so exorbitant.
Besides being unconstitutional, forcing anyone to buy “health insurance” is not a health-care program.
In fact, many cultures and religions, including Islam, consider it to be gambling. Yes, gambling in which one bets against himself. That is pretty sick, isn’t it?
