It's 3 A.M.: Do You Know Where Your Affordable Care Act Is?

I awoke in the middle of the night thinking of the Affordable Care Act. Such are the times we live in.

No matter what the U.S. Supreme Court decides in the next few weeks, I'm still of the mind that the health insurance industry should not be a for-profit industry. It's not just the amorality or immorality of making a profit off of people's health. It's the shaky capitalism of it all. The goal of the insurance industry is to sell to whose who don't need its product and reject those who do. Its market efficiency leads to this vast product inefficiency. It wants to sell us something we'll never use. If there's a chance we'll use it? It doesn't want to sell it to us.

Are there other products or services like this? Not broccoli, certainly.
