Yes, they say "I have no need for medical care". what happens if they get cancer or wreck their car? They are still leeching off the system.

They have the knowledge that if they get sick or have a wreck, they will receive care.

If we had a system in place that denied admittance to a hospital, clinic or the ER without insurance. How many people would not buy insurance? Risk dying on the side of the road in the cars after a wreck?

I worked in a level 1 trauma ER for 5 years. I would guessestimate that maybe 10% had insurance. And that was real expensive bills being racked up. Who paid the bill for the 90% that leeched off the system? We all know the answer......the taxpayer.

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
