<<The idea that the younger do not need health insurance is baloney. >>


That is true. But a just health insurance scheme would charge young people a lot less because of their lower risk of significant illness, and charge the elderly a lot more, because of their (our) elevated risk of injury and illness.

Instead, Obamacare, for example, gouges young people in order to subsidize older people.

That is unjust and abusive, and discourages young people from getting insurance.


Somehow though, it's understood that women will get much lower car insurance rates than men.
