In interviews last fall, insurance executives said they had a sound reason for the different premiums: Women ages 19 to 55 tend to cost more than men of the same age because they typically use more health care, especially in the childbearing years. Moreover, insurers said women were more likely to visit doctors, to get regular checkups, to take prescription medications and to have certain chronic illnesses.
So, by the same token, if your child is an honor student, you will have to pay higher taxes to the schools. Because your honor student will be less likely to skip school, will be more likely to ask for make-up work when absent, and will be more likely to ask questions in class and come in for tutoring when needed. Which will requires the teachers to, uh... do their job.
Isn't the point of health insurance that it allows you to "visit doctors, to get regular checkups, to take prescription medication"? WHAT AM I PAYING FOR???
Oh, that's right... I forgot I must be punished for being born with girlie parts...
