@monkeyzazu, I cannot imagine health insurance not being mandatory. I live in a country where health care is taken care of in a way that everyone is taken care of when ever something happens.

Man I have heard horror stories in the US where they will not perform surgery on you, albeit you can be in a life threatening situation, just because they cannot find a card on you that says you got health insurance? Holy crap how fucked up is that?!?

Sure you pay $100,- a month extra and you have less to spend on other things, but is it not a beautiful thing that everyone will be helped when ever they have health issues? C’mon, the US is not a 3rd World country, but it surely looks like regarding health insurance.

Yes, you are right, maybe you will not go to the hospital for 5 years in a row and you will save $6000,-, but maybe your mum will be able to undergo a newly developed special cancer treatment which would normally cost $60,000.
Still not convinced?
