Health Insurance and House Insurance

Last year I heard on the radio Mike Huckabee, Republican hopeful attacking the Health care bill's no pre-existing conditions requirements by comparing health insurance to property insurance. He says that from a common sense perspective imagine one person trying to buy insurance on a house that burned down the day before.

Unfortunately common sense is the least common of them all.

Yet, houses don't vote.
Houses don't pray for recovery.
Houses don't suffer.
Houses don't have a soul.
Houses don't have children they wish to see grow old.
Houses don't care for one another.
Houses don't love.
Housed don't cry, don't laugh, don't hug you back.

It's easy to blame other for the problems of this world. It's hard to stand up and try to do something about it.
