Without health insurance, getting sick or injured could mean going bankrupt, going without needed care, or even dying needlessly.
Even if I might say to myself, ‘I don’t need health insurance. I won’t get sick,’ the fact is, as human beings with mortality, we are going to get sick, and it’s unpredictable when.
A tremendous amount of needless pain and suffering can be eliminated by ensuring that health insurance is universally available.
If a child, a spouse, a life partner, or a parent depends on you and your income, you need life insurance.
There’s definitely evidence that capitalism at its most ruthless rewards psychopathic behavior. When you look at the worst corners of the American health insurance industry or the sub-prime banking market, it really feels like the more psychopathically someone behaves, the more it’s rewarded.
Fun is like life insurance; the older you get, the more it costs.
Everyone should have health insurance? I say everyone should have health care. I’m not selling insurance.
If you’re healthy, if you don’t get sick much, if you don’t go to the doctor much or use your health insurance much, you are a genetic lottery winner. It has nothing to do with the way you live, nothing to do with doing the right things. It’s just sheer luck, and you are gonna pay for that.
