Health Care Insurance Explained - Short Form

A cogent explanation of the current health care insurance propositions comes from The Barrister at Maggie's Farm -

...With government medicine, you are a cost unless you are still paying plenty of taxes - which is around only 10% of the population, or less. If you are sick or disabled, you become even more of a burden to "the common good."

With private insurance, they want you alive to pay your premium...
I'm reminded of a long forgotten comedian in the 1970's explaining insurance -
The insurance company says you will not get hurt or sick, you think you will get hurt or sick, and you both hope they are right.
