[QUOTE=PlumberKhan;4064440]You know who else should pay large premiums? People who refuse to have lasik eye surgery and wear glasses instead. Think about it. People who wear glasses are a danger to society at large. What if they break them while out somewhere and then have to drive home without their glasses on? They could kill countless people on our nation's highways.
In fact, people with lower than 20/20 vision should be allowed to drive or operate any machinery of any sort. Lots of people who have to wear glasses decide to NOT pay extra for prescription sunglasses and choose to just drive w/o wearing glasses.
That is extremely dangerous to the rest of us non-glasses wearing people. I think the government should ban them from driving altogether for the greater good....[/QUOTE]
terrible analogy. The Government requires you to wear glasses while driving if you need them.
I had not thought of this example of "...for the greater good"
[QUOTE=Buster;4064368]You obviously have greater knowledge on this subject than I do. But the government requiring all citizens to do something for "the greater good of all" is what governments do. We have all benefited from similar actions taken by our government in the past. I think the author of the article has a good idea, if folks want to opt out they need to pay a larger premium.[/QUOTE]
And I would counter that it is wholly hypocritical and unfair to require a taxpaying citizen of this country to pay a higher insurance premium if they choose not to vaccinate whilst the private company who profits from said vaccination is insulated by the government and the very tax excised on their product.
I think the author has not done nearly the amount of research he should have before opening his piehole. Or, he's a Pharma shill. :yes:
