Stanley,

First, you're a treasure to American's healthcare discussion and the blogging community for being bold enough to state issues plainly and candidly. So, thanks.

It would be terrible to have your health insurance coverage canceled when you need it the most, no doubt. But my question with this post is: did these people, in fact, lie on their applications? This is a contract. If an applicant lies, they have chosen the risk of having their coverage canceled.

Since I began working at 22 years old (I'm 43 now), I have paid - either through my employer or most years, individual coverage - healthcare premiums without lapse. I am very proud of that. Do some people wait until they are severly ill until they begin contributing to our very excellent medical system? It is expensive and can be overwhelming to afford but I really think people should pay something.

Again, thanks for the forum. It's great.

Debra
