Well I can see my views are somehow considered extreme left or something. But yes I am ok. I will have another cortadito.
Me too. My problem is I am having a hard understanding libertarianism. Our self proclaimed libertarian thinks it is swell for the state to round up law abiding citizens and throw them in jail overnight.

you could make the argument that is exactly why a foreigner should be required to have an insurance so they don’t become the DRs problem in a public hospital. Public hospitals are for Dominicans.
You ever see the inside of a public hospital here?
The DR does not have to worry about spending money on foreigners in their public hospitals as the quality of care and general conditions are sad and cannot cost much to keep in such a pathetic condition.
I would not bring my dog for treatment in a public hospital.
No foreigner coming to the DR would stay more than 5 minutes if they are ambulatory.
Foreigners and Dominicans who can afford it all go to private care facilities.

If someone does not have insurance and no credit card don’t they go to public hospital.

The division public/private hospitals goes not along passport lines. In the DR it goes along the wealth lines.
An issue for the government is the deportation of ill, uninsured foreigners (after accident, stroke, etc.). This could be costly and therefore some goverments require insurance.

I guess he (or she) needs to plan a bit better. Mom and Dad always told me to plan ahead.
