How does forcing people to buy health insurance really solve the healthcare issue in this country? Especially if they can’t afford it? The fine for not paying is less than the cost of healthcare. Our politicians sold out the the healthcare industry. Medical tourism is something that is becoming more common. Medical tourism is when someone goes out of the US to another country to get their operation, surgery or other medical or dental needs taken care of. It’s cheaper to go to India, get your operation, recover and see the country than it is to have it done in the US.
Healthcare should be a guaranteed right in the America. Now the argument is that people wonder how it will be paid for. Which is valid. Do we all just say, everyone fend for themselves? Everyone go into debt themselves? No one is to blame for being diagnosed with cancer or some other illness. Things like that happen and can take a whole family into debt. Yes, people shouldn’t be getting sex changes or other unnecessary procedures under any free healthcare system. But surely there has to be something better than this.
