    did you happen to catch Bill Maher's show from last week? That's exactly what he was saying - keep calling these people freeloaders.

    I have likened it to the premium that I am required to pay on my auto insurance to cover damage caused by uninsured motorists (which EVERYONE hates). I'm also paying now to cover people's medical bills when they're uninsured. It's basically the same thing.

      (and what I think might help drive the point home) is the same breakdown showing what portion of your premium is for covering the uninsured, the same way it's broken out on your auto insurance bill.

      We hate having to cover uninsured motorists in part because we can see what it costs us, right there on the policy. We need that same transparency in our health insurance policies.
