The new health insurance program…

Good afternoon, Netizens...

David Horsey once again picks up the gauntlet of health insurance, this time looking rather dismally (and perhaps accurately) into the future of health care claims.

Do these poor patients look willing? If I interpret the various versions of the new health insurance laws working their way through the various committees, it does appear that, regardless of what versions of the law they pass, it will be mandatory, that is, we the consumer, have no say what kind of insurance we will have. We simply will have insurance or pay an unstated penalty.

Some say it could be even worse. Might it be possible that we might not get medical care if we did not have health insurance?

But as suggested by David Horsey's cartoon, there are other issues, such as recouping the costs of this long and costly battle against subsidized health care.

Watch and see what happens. This could either get very scary or very costly, and given the insurance company's take on the matter, it will be costly
