Universal health care question

6570 Views 307 Replies 42 Participants Last post by  RichMac
I agree that something needs to be done (desperately) to the health care system. The problem I have with universal health care is that if I understand it right, everyone's tax money devoted to the program would often go to treat preventable problems (things caused by smoking, sedentary lifestyle, etc). Is this true or false? How do you feel about it?

I'd point out here that the top marginal tax rate today is 39.6% while it has been as high as 91% in the past.<br><br>
This is interesting. My law school wouldn't let you attend without proof of health insurance. If you didn't have any coverage, you were put on the school's policy and charged the school's group rate.<br><br>
