If you wondered what life was like without health insurance? Here's a little statistic: 26,000 Americans die prematurely each year due to lack of health insurance. They didn't get preventive care or they didn't get needed care. Many of these are caused by high premiums or denial of coverage.
As we await the Supreme Court's decision on healthcare reform, what do we do for those people who die prematurely if the act is struck down, all or in part? I am not saying the healthcare act as proposed is right or wrong, I just think the current system is broken.
I know you can blame people like me with a million little bitty ailments who are driving up health care costs with all my medical adventures. But I do feel everyone should be able to get health insurance if they want it. Call me optimistic but it would be nice.
