If there is anyone dependent on your income - parents, children, relatives - you need life insurance.
It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today. The 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, family leave, health insurance, Social Security, Medicare, retirement plans. The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label.
Unemployment insurance is a pre-paid vacation for freeloaders.
Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Many kids come out of college, they have a credit card and a diploma. They don't know how to buy a house or a car or health insurance or life insurance. They do not know basic microeconomics.
Fun is like life insurance; the older you get, the more it costs.
Unemployment insurance, abolishing child labor, the 40-hour work week, collective bargaining, strong banking regulations, deposit insurance, and job programs that put millions of people to work were all described, in one way or another, as 'socialist.' Yet, these programs have become the fabric of our nation and the foundation of the middle class.
Having insurance doesn't guarantee good health outcomes, but it is a critical factor.
If a child, a spouse, a life partner, or a parent depends on you and your income, you need life insurance.
It is not good not to have health insurance; that leaves the family very vulnerable.
Without health insurance, getting sick or injured could mean going bankrupt, going without needed care, or even dying needlessly.
If you know your life chances are greatly reduced, should you be in a position to take out life insurance if that knowledge is not available to the insurers?
David Sainsbury, Baron Sainsbury of Turville
Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance.
My mother had taught shorthand and typing to support us since my father died, and secretly she hated it and hated him for dying and leaving no money because he didn't trust life insurance salesmen.
Someone made me a Leaf Coneybear finger puppet. Someone made me a portrait of me on some chocolate. I'm keeping it. I daren't eat such a work of art. It's so unique and so fun that fans do that. It's incredibly flattering. I like it when people spend time on me. People don't spend the same amount of time on my brother who's an insurance broker.
I'm sure that the standard of public morality we've helped build will force government in Canada to approve complete health insurance.
Justice is the insurance which we have on our lives and property. Obedience is the premium which we pay for it.
The irony is that it was tougher to rent a car from Cerberus when it owned Alamo than to buy a semi-automatic. To rent a car, one had to provide ID, a drivers' license, and get insurance coverage. To buy a gun? Cash and carry, from the back of a station wagon at a gun show. No concerns about downstream liability or risk.
Women oftentimes are the ones making those economic decisions, sitting around the kitchen table and trying to figure out how to pay for rising gas prices or food prices or the health insurance costs. And I think that they see where they expect their leaders in Congress to also make those tough decisions.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers

Look, if you have somebody who doesn't have health insurance, who doesn't have a doctor or dentist, and in order to deal with their cold or flu or dental problem, they go to an emergency room - in general, that visit will cost ten times more than walking into a community health center.
If you're healthy, if you don't get sick much, if you don't go to the doctor much or use your health insurance much, you are a genetic lottery winner. It has nothing to do with the way you live, nothing to do with doing the right things. It's just sheer luck, and you are gonna pay for that.
For almost seventy years the life insurance industry has been a smug sacred cow feeding the public a steady line of sacred bull.
I remember the first pangs of stress arriving at the end of school. Once I graduated I had to get a full-time job, worry about health insurance, saving money, paying rent - things I'd never thought about before.
