This is just my opinion but I believe it will work and would be the best solution to the rising costs and the answer to those uninsured.
There was a time when I was paying $900 for health insurance just for my wife and 2 kids. That didn't even include me. That was as much as a house payment. Ridiculous. No wonder people don't want to buy health insurance.
