Re: why insure those with pre-existin' conditions?
Not really. I said it probably would be, but it's entirely irrelevant. That was the point I was making. Justice and law enforcement are governmental functions, and the costs thus "socialized", because they must remain impartial and not subject to the monetary influences, not because its a handy way to socialize costs.
