Link'd Now the argument from the righties has always been that a person shouldn't be forced to pay for someone else's health care. (Stealing, as some have called it.) I've always argued that you're paying for it either way. This looks to provide hard evidence that that is the case. You can't escape paying for the uninsured, so why not insure everyone? At least that way we can control some of the costs and keep more of the otherwise-uninsured out of the emergency rooms.
