San Francisco’s going to provide health care for all uninsured adults starting November 1. Officials believe ensured folks won’t abandon their current coverage for a free ride. “Because the coverage is not portable, officials believe that people with private insurance will have little incentive to drop their policies to take advantage of the city’s cut-rate services.” They hope to enroll 45,000 people in the first year.
It’s a noble goal, but ignores the fact that Americans who are already sick and unisured will soon going be migrating to San Francisco… by the millions.
