    No, I think it'll happen when the pendulum swings the other way. And it will swing back hard. It's a cycle and it seems to be getting more and more amplified.
    When the poor (the current system is making more of them every day) can't get enough food, you will have your revolution....and it will not be as you say.
    The poor could stand to miss a few meals. Thus helping to end the obesity problem.

    The truth is, if you have good insurance, you don't need to hide cash. You can limit your maximum out of pocket. 

    If you don't have insurance and stash cash to avoid paying the bill, then the rest of us are stuck paying your bills.

    What happened to personal responsibility?

    Personal responsibility got lost somewhere near whataboutism, apparently.

    Amazingly, much of the rest of the world has figured out how to solve the problem of catastrophic health care.  

    We Americans are free to foot the bill ourselves....and experience worse outcomes.   That's not really working out so well, comparatively speaking.

    Responsibility or societal burden seems to be the operative question, and opinions vary.

    They call that government health care. and they take 2/3rds of your paycheck.

    I worry about Catastrophic Health issues...The # 1 reason for Bankruptcy in the USA mainly..
    Rather Die knowing I got a safe roll stashed.. then penniless and Dead because the Hospital took all my money and I'm eating dog food for the rest of my life....
     # Reason of financial issues in retirement    That is why when you turn 65 you get an F plan medicare supplement you'll never pay another medical bill or deductible  except your premium the rest of your life.  Make sure its an individual plan that way it can never be canceled.   Other catastrophic insurance would be long term care .     Invest the money to pay for the insurance.  No more stress!!!

    never go on a medicare advantage program

    I'm goona check that plan out..Thanks Finfinder..

    On a side note I told one of the 350 pound Dikes she has pretty eyes today..
    Should have seen her Blush and go all School girl on me...winning..

    Been thinking about it as I near Retirement age.
    Untouchable that way. Ammo can buried or similar. I know about Inflation , I know about Investments . I know I won,t make a dime on it....But it will always be there , just sitting...safe.
    Most likely I'll use it for day to day living...$100 here ..$100 there.
    Keep some in the Bank for the Big Hits.
    I'm thinking about 150 K , 50's and 20's. I earned it , I payed Taxes on it. It's not Drug Money or the pay for a Hit. It's mine.
    What will the IRS say if I just make the withdrawal...will they know..will they care.
    Benefits...Disadvantages ?..what say you...
    I sincerely hope nobody on here knows you personally. The way people talk, you surely will become a target for home invasion...the druggies are on the prowl to get their next fix.

    Yeah WF they did that to one of the big pecan farmers here a few yrs ago.  They shot him & left him to die.  He was found a couple of days later & he was still alive but paralyzed.  They caught the men that did it around a yr later.

    Yeah right the rest of the world figured it out...my father in law in Poland needed surgery. They told him it was serious, but he had to wait a year for this surgery. If you want good doctors, you need to go to private doctors there. Also, if you want less pain during childbirth, you need to pay doctors and nurses under the table to get better and faster care. Our friends had to come to United States because Poland and Europe did not have the medicines nor doctors to help their child. I am sure the sacrifices and research of our Capitalistic medicine helps the socialists mooch off its findings, much like what they are used to doing. 

    They have figured it out here, anchors and illegals get it for free, while middle class foots the bill. I have paid over $25,000 over the last 5 years...how much have the illegals, druggies, etc paid? Oh the children, more like oh the votes.

    I converted much of the gold I had into US silver coins. If things go south silver is much more dividable than gold and just about any bubba would know a silver dollar and a bag of them could go much further in a barter than a Panda, Maple Leaf or Kurgerand. Either one though would be much better than cash to buried. Cash is fragile and unless stored very well will turn to useless confetti quite quickly.

    Poland's healthcare is a combination of public and private, as you point out.   They are hardly a story in success, and you are right to point out the shortcomings in that system, and we should consider their example to the extent we go farther down that road.

    You are also right to point out the shortcomings of our system, which underlines some of the problems we have here.

    Do you know anyone from Japan or Singapore?  Why do you think not many of them come here?

    I was thinking something similar, the one problem this doesn't have is a lack food.  Too much food is the current problem.

    1940s elderly were recovering from the Great Depression, that just might have had something to do with the poverty rate......

    That was health insurance, My dental is $25 a month and I did forget it, But I also got 2 cleanings, X-rays, and check ups for free during the year. It is kind of hard to allocate the premiums over the services and determine the value, 

    My point was the large insurance companies are the guys getting the best prices for services in most cases. Whether it is medical or dental..

    I got my Wisdom teeth pulled for $100, but that was back in my 20s and the dental college did it. 

    As stated above my Dental insurance is $25 a month and includes two cleanings, x rays, check up, and some other services.
