[QUOTE=DrunkBassGuitar;9201122]It is an argument because that is exactly how the American medical system works.
Whoosh! The point went over your head. I made an argument for it NOT having to be working that way. It didn't always work that way. That's due to govt interference too.
If you don't have insurance, and you go to the ER, you will get treatment.
I already know that. Now see above, again.
Or I guess you could have doctors say "I'm sorry you don't have insurance, but I cannot treat you for your (potentially life-threatening) injuries." But there's about a 0% chance of that happening.
You are wrong. No one was turned away before govt got involved. You can get services for half of normal rates if you pay cash even. There are still doctors have and still do relieve some of paying anything.
Your side makes things more expensive.
Before you read the “Outside The Lines” report, consider this:
Taping the opposing team’s sideline still isn’t banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasn’t banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
