What the fuck? Really?
But, this doesn't make any sense. If they are forced to do so, why doesn't the goverment just take control of health care, to some degree at least?

Not trying to argue wich system is better, i sincerely don't know, but this situation you are describing me is too dangerous, it is fertile ground for all kind of abuses and scams.

Well that's what Obamacare is. It takes the system that we have currently and makes it required by law. It forces everyone to have healthcare so hospitals have to write off less because there's a larger guarantee of principle paid. But that's just it, some people don't want to pay into the system .They'd rather take their chances and pay for their own healthcare and the fact that there is no longer a choice is what makes this option difficult. People can no longer have the healthcare they want to pay for, but are forced to pay for the healthcare that the government has decided they need.

Ah i see, i knew you guys were upset about that issue but didn't know why exactly. I can understand it, being used to choose who you want to be your doctor and suddenly losing that can be annoying.
It still would be good knowing those white-coat fuckers can't rip you off, though...

Well, thanks for your replies, that's been very informative.

That's not buying money, that's putting money into the trust or interest of a company, in the hopes that some of the money could be doubled and come back to you, if the company is doing well. So yes, I suppose poor people could buy more money.

If they weren't, you know.....POOR.

No... What you described is investment.

A bond is an agreement which says "We'll give you this much money at this date", which you pay for. The bond can then be sold on to others to redeem at that date or kept to redeem as intended (dependent on the nature of the bond, for that first part).

stocks and bonds aren't very good investments, especially with interest rates so low...
