    I would not go quite that far at all.

    Insurance isn't about "paying into a pool", its about paying a premium to someone with deep pockets to share the risk if you have a large loss.

    The problem with medical insurance is people who come in with "preexisting conditions"

    This is of course a load of shit, as this is like selling an auto policy to someone after they already wrecked their ride.

    Or a homeowners policy to someone whose house is already ablaze.

    With medical insurance, a lot of people immediately sign up for a Sex Change or other elective procedures as soon as they get the policy. As if they don't know they are going to switcheroo in advance. If someone's a tranny, they should just do at home, like these guys in Pennsylvania did.

    Such individuals are not worth bankrupting America and stripping us of our freedom to be independent of an out-of-control medical profession which currently does a lot more harm than good, especially with pills. Just ask Heath Ledger.... 28 year old Heath Ledger... on 7 different prescriptions when he died...

    Congratulations, Mr. President! Just hand me your health care plan, and I'll get it passed immediately.



    [​IMG]
    I thought YOU had a plan.



    [​IMG]
    Oh no you don't! You said YOU had a "beautiful" plan!


    [​IMG]
    And that plan was to take credit for YOUR plan! That's how my schemes work!
