There are many selfish bloggers on this topic. I have a friend who is currently uninsured because he can't afford COBRA and can't take out a private policy and actually use it because of pre-exisiting condition clauses that would follow him into his next job's group insurance. The government created COBRA, which is helpful for those that can afford it. I agree that healthcare insurance is too expensive, which is a separate issue that needs addressing. Don't punish the unemployed further in these rough times. Have some compassion and learn to share.
