When people die who don't have life insurance it creates a huge burden for the family. However, not having health insurance tends to impact the person who doesn't have it much more than others. Someone posed this question while talking about the new healthcare bill and I wondered what others thought.

Oh, so a homeless man struck by a car through no fault of his own should be turned away from the ER because he can't pay for it? What a wonderful society that would be. You are "forced" to buy auto insurance if you have a car. Why is that acceptable?
Low income people have other options free clinics, payment plans, and many churches who set up entire funds to help these people with bills, along with Medicaid for some. My car can hurt someone, my occasional lack of insurance does not!
