So, what happens if you have a catastrophic accident or illness? Do you have the 100s of thousands of dollars saved up for that? That is where the problem is. I'm very healthy myself, but there are folks out there just like you who would be completely wiped out if they did get critically ill and, yes, I am subsidizing those folks. This bill is not a panacea for everyone, but it is a start in the right direction in getting folks adequate health care at a more reasonable cost. Keeping things the way they are now is not acceptable.

Edit: I do think that you should be able to opt out without penalty, though.
