It gets worse. Since you don’t have to sign up right away to get health insurance – they still have to take you when you get sick – and the fines taxes are way too small to force people into the system, the insurance companies will rapidly be caught in a cost spiral. When they increase the costs due to drop outs, more people will drop out. It will be interesting how this plays out.

Just tell them your name is Jose Martinez Lupe Jorge Gonzales, and you are an illegal from Mexico. No problem.

That’s funny, when I left the Stockton P.D. the city went broke, if I would have retired they would have cancelled my insurance, I told my wife, we need to go to the doctor, just make up a name and tell them you don’t speak English….

Add in all the doctors quitting, massive expenses levied on the states, and even more people using the ER as a doctors office, I’m thinking it might be time to study some advanced first aid.
