This reflects, quite consisely, what I think about health care reform in the US:
All of us put our money into a big pot, and when you have medical expenses, you take some money out of the big pot.
That—in 25 words—is everything you need to know about health-care insurance.
This is no different from the Golden Rule, originally formulated by Rabbi Hillel, who added, “The rest is commentary.”
To read some of the aforementioned commentary, please read the whole article by Ira Rosofsky at Psychology Today’s website.
