    problem with state healthcare pools in not only do they demand the high premiums that are pretty much unaffordable, but if you put all the terminal and seriously sick together in one group of course the costs are going to escalate and eventually the system will be bankrupt.  The whole purpose of healthcare insurance was that not everyone was going to use it at the same time and those that needed it would have it to cover medical costs.  

    But, how things have changed especially with the mentality of some Americans that don't want to share the burden and will tell you your on your own, which the whole idea behind insurance is to share the burden of the costs, so with the current mentality in this country insurance isn't workable.  That is until a person gets hit with a catastrophic illness then they understand.  The mental jumping jacks one must do in this country to get healthcare especially if sick is a nightmare.  The healthcare industry and our politicians, have pushed the mindset of this country toward greed and wealth and the hell with your sick fellow citizen, it has gone completely wacky.
