I guess you're lucky enough to have insurance. Good for you. I guarantee you there's at least a dozen people on this sitethat have been out of work for a while now and couldn't afford COBRA, and have families, and have no insurance. What say you to them?
I would say, nice to be with Good Company. I have no insurance at the moment, nor have I had it out side of my parents Insurance. I will be getting it soon though, because I've worked at a Place and moved up to a position where I get it.
Sure, If we don't want to use it we dont' have to BUT we'll have to pay to not use it. That would be the Definition of making someone do something they shouldn't have to do. If I don't want health insurance, I shouldn't have to Pay to NOT have it. I should be able to just not have it. The founding fathers did not want to fine someone for a Freedom they Naturally have.
The Church is not going to pay for healthcare but should help those that need food/shelter/getting back on thier feet.
