This was of course inspired by my own unexpected trip to the ER when I broke my foot while making a dare-devil attempt to... pull on my boots. Thing is, heath care is not a finite thing you can save for--like a car, or a house, etc. It's something you need insurance for, because you could suddenly and very unexpectedly need a hell of a lot of it. If I didn't have health insurance, all those X-rays and trips to the ER and the doctor would have cost... eeek!
Universal health care now! Etc.
By the way, here's another cartoon I did about HSAs after I first heard the daft idea in a Bush speech: "Too Darn Healthy", and here's one about crappy health insurance in general, "Gold-Plated Health Plans."
P.S. Yes, I'm catching up on cartoon posting, I've been quite indisposed with my borken foot--it got all painful and swollen and I had to keep it way up in the air for a few weeks, not a good position to use the computer in!
