Currently in the United States of America we have a healthcare system that is beneficial to those who want to pay for it. For those people who do not want to purchase healthcare, they are simply out of luck when it comes to any medical needs. The article states that this ultimately will put us at about 50 million people being uninsured. State officials have to make a decision with the healthcare reform. Meaning that they should make the coverage more accessible, or else a good amount of the money would be lost. One of the claims made in this article states, "By allowing people to avoid buying insurance until they need it, and then requiring insurers to cover anyone who comes knocking at their door regardless of medical condition, you create a risk pool of exclusively sick people." Because the uninsured are getting treated those who do pay for healthcare get a higher bill every time. Now a day's people are trying to help open the Medicare to people of a lower income to help with the outstanding balances that are owed to people. http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-lazarus-20120330,0,1491023.column (Alex Davis)
