Yeah? What's going to happen that you think Nwolfe35 won't like? Be as specific as you care to.

So the guy that can't afford it can just go to hell.

How do you know you will be one of the ones who can afford it? What happens if you turn out to be one of the ones that can't afford it?

YES !!! If you don't have insurance and can't afford to pay you will NOT receive medical care. The only exception is if you are emergent, if you have a life threatening injury or illness, hospitals are required by federal law to treat you until you are stable. Once they have you stabilized, out the door you go if you can't pay.

THAT is the whole debate. How many people die each year of what should have been treatable illnesses or injuries simply because they can't afford to see a doctor ?? How many people wind up as emergency cases at the ER because they couldn't afford to go to the walk in clinic ??

You cut yourself working around the house. You SHOULD have gone and gotten a few stitches and a round of antibiotics. But since you didn't have insurance or $500 cash, you slap an bandage on it and hope for the best. Four days later you wake up with a 103 temp and the whole area around the cut is red and extremely tender to the touch. NOW you go to the ER !! What should have been a few hundred dollars at a doctors office is now a $10,000 ER visit and maybe a couple days in the hospital since they now need IV antibiotics to cure the massive blood infection caused by the original cut.

ER's see similar stories every day. And hospitals wind up having write off most of those costs. If the person couldn't afford a few hundred at the doctors office, they're never going to pay off an ER visit.

50% of all bankruptcies in this county are due to medical bills. Half of those are people with insurance !!!

We do have some of the best medical care available IF you can afford it !!!

And none of the anti government healthcare types ever address the FACT that the largest single cause of personal bankruptcy in the US is medical expenses for people WITH health insurance.

I believe it's 48,000 Americans die each year from lack of medical care.

How much would you be willing to spend if it was 48,000 dying in terrorist attacks each year?
