    By law the bill has to be the same to everyone. The bill needs to be big to get a big tax write off to compensate for the loss from those uninsured that didn't pay the bill. So the insurance forces them to take a lower payment because they can pressure the hospitals to move paying patients elsewhere. So you are paying for those who are not insured and not paying.

    You pay! Unless of course you don't pay taxes like 50% of the population. One way or another everyone gets taken care of that's the myth that there are so many uninsured. It would be nice if you could take a tax deduction for unknown charitable contributions.

    Insurance is the problem. Without it hospitals and drug companies couldn't charge as much because no one could afford to pay.The same goes for college tuition. Without government backed student loans colleges would be empty.

    I hope not.
    That would ruin Charlie's Angels.
