This banning of the reciprocal health has now been put into action. But if the agreement (which is basically people don't pay for health care if they are over in the UK when they live in the Isle Of Man) Now this ban has come into place people are going to pay either way, so if this was an unfair scheme in the first place then why want it banned in the first place?

It should be banned because of how much money the U.S. is already in debt and now we want to throw another trillion dollars into the debt?

ROUND 2! I think: If the US are losing so much money then why cant they invest or get money from another place, for example get more money from a more wealthier place. This health agreement suhoudln't have been gotten rid of as what happens if countries or islands run out of money, because they have had to give people extra money in order to pay for health care across??

I assume you are referring to the new regulations that come into force next month:

It is not a fundamental "ban"; just some fine-tuning that will affect very few people.

However, it may be people in the Isle of Man where you live might be affected more than most - but that's only fair as the Manx pay very little tax compared to the UK and therefore contribute little toward the cost of the National Health Service.
