    Health care expenses for a person or a family can be kept relatively low if they see a doctor regularly. Illnesses or other health issues can usually be taken care of before they become acute and an emergency situation.

    If a person or a family does not have health insurance, however, they usually don't have a family doctor. If someone in this circumstance becomes very sick or injured, they are likely to go to an emergency room, whose fees are quite a bit higher than a trip to a doctor's office. If they have no health insurance and don't have enough money to pay the bill, then the taxpayers pay the bill. Guess who the taxpayers are?!

    There are many more issues surrounding this topic; what I wrote above are just general examples.

    What else can you think of?
