Itís also a lie that the bills were paid by the state government.

The people in the ER who donít have insurance and canít afford it are paid for when the hospital charges you $30 for an aspirin. But you donít usually see this. Why? Because your insurance pays for it. Your insurance pays for it by charging everyone $300 (or more) a month for the insurance. But you donít normally see this. Why? Because if you have a job your company pays for most of that.

But if you donít have a job and canít afford insurance on your own? Well then youíre at the ER for an earache and the hospital charges another insurance company $30 for an aspirin. And if you need chemo or a kidney transplant and you donít have insurance then you just die because there is no insurance company thatís going to let a hospital charge them 3,000 for an aspirin.
