    And with real health care, this joke wouldn’t exist. (Sorry for interjecting political beliefs into this comic.)

    A doctor gave a man 6 months to live. The man couldn’t pay his bill, he gave him another 6 months

    NOW you want a second opinion.

    Doctors tend to probe into as many of your openings they can, be they physical or financial.

    hahahaha…you’re right, because with “real health care” and the taxes that will be collected, no one will have anything left to be able to buy on credit…

    Yes sir, that is correct. It has become our policy within the medical field.

    We must always now perform a background check before any treatment.

    So the way that your credit stands it has become required that you must pay in cash beforehand not afterwards.

    So I’m afraid that if you can’t pay up front, then there is nothing that we can do for you.

    Now get out!!!!

    Gee, they let my father pay 32 years for my late brother. Had to mortgage the house twice and live like a pauper, but back then real men paid their own bills.

    Actually, “back then” is one of the fantasies we all like to live in. Back then people were nobler. Blah blah blah.

    Back then, people walked away from their debts as often as today. And before back then, well, what would you call the depression? Actually, this country is filled with the descendants of people who ran out on their debts or other obligations. It’s our heritage.

    This is modern medicine’s most important diagnostic tool. How sick can this guy afford to be?

    Lawyers do the same thing, you know, except when they take you on as a client on a contingency basis — they get paid only if they win.

    Hey, there’s an idea! Have doctors get paid on a contingency basis: they get paid only if, and after, you get better. Give ‘em some incentive. :)

    The Non Sequitur comic strip has enough occasional political content to justify the same from its message board crew … just sayin ….. that’s just one reason I like it …. and I love that the government finally has increased its share of the country’s health care load … it’s sad to see people resorting to fundraisers for kids with cancer … something that is totally unnecessary in other countries …

    @FishStix,

    Right now insurance company bureaucrats are making your medical decisions. They have a vested interest in spending as little money as possible on your care. At least a gov’t bureaucrat’s bonus doesn’t depend on how well he screws you. And you have some influence via the vote.
