We already have death panels at insurance companies. The uninsured are already going to doctors, often to expensive emergency rooms, albeit inefficiently and often too late. The rest of us are paying for them out of our taxes and inflated insurance premiums. The uninsured are also a public health hazard passing on their poorly treated infections to the rest of us. The new legislation shifts the cost of treating those who cannot afford insurance.. The overall cost may well be less than now. Preventive care alone will save the uninsured from more serious problems and save money for the system. Furthermore the population will be healthier. A healthier population translates into a more stable and robust economy which will be good for business.
