You must not yet be at the stage of life where a lengthy hospital stay becomes more of a possibility, and would bankrupt even individuals with decent assets and savings.

I’m almost there, but we can’t go on with medical costs going up %10 a year. The reason we’re in this mess is having too many people purchasing medical care with other people’s money. It has too stop somewhere and I’m willing to suffer to do that.

Definitely one of the scarier aspects of life when you start getting up in years and realize its not a matter of if but when. I have seen friends of mine have one heart attack eat up their savings up in one fell swoop even when they had healthcare coverage. To imagine that you spent all those years savings and then BAM gone. Your backup funds out the door. It’s very scary.

Move to Cuba. You’ll get the socialized medicine you are asking for.
