When i got my first job that provided health insurance, i signed up. It was taken out of my check for me, not something i.needed to "pay". Since then, it has neen like every other need/must: taxes, food, housing, heat. When things got rough i canceled.everything i could and health ins. was never even considered. i know i am lucky to have a job that offers ins. and that it isnt extremely expensive. But, when you get a job...or jobs, you do.it to.pay for the things you NEED and THEN the things you want. So why isnt health insurance as important as food/heating/housing, etc.?
I am editing this because people are not understanding. This isn't about choosing one over the other. If you couldnt pay for food, you would get another job, or make cuts elsewhere. Same with housing, but with health insurance... the only way a lot of people will even see a doctor...its all "oh well we cant afford it". That is crazy to me.
