Right Now 5 Wealthy Men Whose Health Insurance You Have Paid for Most of Their Lives Are Probably Deciding You Can't Have Insurance
People who have insurance are being overcharged to cover free riders—like Mary Brown, who filed the original lawsuit asserting her right not to buy health insurance. “She firmly believes that no one should have the right to tell her she has to use her own money to pay for health insurance.” But Brown is no longer the named plaintiff. Why? Because NFIB dropped her when the real world intruded. She got sick. The bills came due. And without health insurance, she went bankrupt. She had to close her auto-repair shop. And she stiffed her doctors and hospital—leaving folks who were more responsible than she to cover her uncompensated care.
