The uninsured are still treated, but the cost of that treatment is expensed by the health care provider. Those expenses are passed on to the consumers that can pay. So as the system stands now, we are paying for the uninsured no matter their reason for not having health insurance, but the cost is being absorbed by only those responsible and lucky enough to be able to afford health insurance and with the health history have the opportunity to purchase the insurance.
Oh, I get it. People who are able to pay are suffering from higher bills due to people who cannot. Well, that s#$ks monkey nuts. They are just dragging the system down by getting free healthcare.

Affordable health insurance? That is a tough one.
