Some People Probably Shouldn’t Have Health Insurance

In an e-newsletter sent today, Grace-Marie Turner of the Galen Institute writes:

“No one is arguing that children shouldn’t have health insurance….”

Sigh.  Looks like I’ll have to say it again:

Sick people don’t need insurance. Insurance doesn’t make sick people healthy. They need medical care. They may even need subsidies. So why not try to provide them those things, rather than wreck the markets for both health insurance and health care?
