90. Without the PO the insurance companies win big
It is very likely that everyone must have health insurance with a bill the repubs like and the corps get filthy rich, even richer than they are. We will all be forced into buying health insurance instead of finding other means to pay for health care. For instance, invest in something(s) like property, etc. I'm on medicare but, prior to that we spent $$ on investing. Now the cost is so outrageous that we would have to sell nearly everything we worked for if we got a bill for hundreds of thousands, like some do? That is ridiculous. Hell, I would be totally pissed if my family spent that kinds of money to keep this 71 yr. old granny that has smoked all my life alive for a few more months or years!! Come to think of it, they better not let that happen if I am incapacitated, price be damned. I watched a Dear Friend die after more than 2 months in the hospital, in and out of intensive care, barely able to communicate. It was almost impossible for me to see her in that condition. The family had lots of insurance. I have a feeling once you run out of money they quit keeping the near death alive. At one point she apparently was so infected (?) that I had to put full protection gear on to go in her room. I thought it was for her benefit but no, it was for the visitors, we had to use disinfectant after leaving her room.
