    • On September 01, 2011, by Templar - Insurance of any kind is a complete scam designed to make the owners of the insurance companies rich. My auto insurance increased because they said I was in a high accident area. I have no accidents, no tickets, no DUIs. My driving record is clean. They raised my rates anyway simply because I moved to a new neighborhood. That is a scam!! Raise the rates of those at fault in the accidents and leave everyone else alone! Health insurance is the same. I have a health care savings account. $2500 deductible. If I meet my deductible this year I still have to come up with another 2500 next year if I need help. Scam.

    • On February 01, 2011, by stidmatt - If people don't have health care and then have to go to the ER when they could have been treated for a fraction of the cost a month earlier they have wasted tax payer dollars. If everyone took care of health problems earlier because they have insurance society will save billions of dollars that then will stimulate the economy and improve the lives of the lower middle class who don't qualify for medicaid and have to pay the highest percentage of income on health care. This wastes tax payer dollars which hurts everyone, except special interests' incomes. THIS IS PORK.
