    Insurance is legalized gambling. You're betting you'll collect on something for cheaper than you paid in insurance and the insurance company is betting you won't. Actuaries are oddsmakers and actuarial tables are the odds they use when setting prices for "bets".

    They won't repeal healthcare. They will have a vote claiming thy are repealing it, but it won'y go into effect for years. In the mean time they will fix the things needing fixing, like they should have already done, and change the name to something else, and the RWNJs are so dumb till they will think they got what they were promised.

    You buy insurance for a catastrophe mostly, at least this is what kind of insurance we carry on our home, cars, fire, health

    Now before the law, the medical corruption kicked them off insurance ( or they had to keep working through cancer ect.} used up life savings and then stopped treatment left to die. Happened all of the time...

    No. By definition, insurance is an assumption of risk on the part of the insurance company.

    Do you know what an assumption of risk is?

    Unless you are a communist, you would see that not everyone is born equal or able to draw equality, so pretty much the entire planet has been shuffling all kinds of lives in this fashion for the past 1 billion years.

    No I don't know what assumption of risk is...but it sounds like a tricky way to get money and not pay out when needed...

    Oh so why do you think it is ok for these politicians to steal money from us, and have the best medical insurance possible, but forget the little kid...Oh come on...I disagree very much so..

    The insurance companies are corrupt as hell, along with the Big Pharma.

    The people we have in office are making laws so they can steal more off of our illnesses...

    I don't see you mentioning this at all,it is just luck...lol...
