Do you disagree that the cost of care is the problem?

No. I do agree that cost of care is an issue. But i do believe there is more to it and requiring people to have insurance will make each person accountable for when they get medical services.

I agree that more people shuld have insurance, but the system will collapse if the cost of care doesn't come down. Baut, as I said before, the strategy is to cause collapse not to fix the problems and improve upon the existing structure.

More people having insurance does nothing to fix our healthcare system.

Neither I nor "Jenny" are saying health CARE isn't necessary. Nobody will debate that many times illnesses need professional medical attention. It's INSURANCE that isn't a necessity for everyone. There are many young adults that rarely, if ever go to the doctor. Sure, I get the concept of insurance for the "what ifs," but it's not a necessity as you can get care without it.

Exactly. The focus should have been on fixing what is wrong with healthcare (ie prices, etc) not forcing everyone in the country to have insurance. Take my SO for example, he's never sick, he hasn't had a job that offered health insurance in nearly 10 years and hasn't cared because he doesn't need it. The only benefit to him having it now would be that it'd be cheaper to add our son to his policy through work rather than keep him on my policy which he pays for directly. I wouldn't have needed that policy myself if we wouldn't have started a family. Besides pregnancy, I didn't really need my insurance.
