    I'd be thrilled if everyone paid for everyone's health insurance. Or perhaps a two-tiered public/private health insurance system.

    That would be great if everyone paid income taxes, buuuut...

    Sure there is. People are forced to provide goods and services to those that did not earn them.
    Thus, involuntary servitude.
    I ask again: Why do you support involuntary servitude?

    Yeahright.
    weren't conservatives complaining about how big, complex, and long the bill was? Seems entirely plausible to me.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Are you willing to turn people away from the ERs?

    And Doctors 1) know what they are getting into and 2) can leave at any time they want to.

    there is no involuntary servitude.

    If you pay attention, most GOP are calling to find a withdrawl plan from the useless wars.

    If you want socialized health care move to a country that already has it....oh wait, most of them are trying to get rid of it.

    Um, there's plenty of statistical basis for the idea that the government provides health care more efficiently than the private sector.

    So, what you're saying, is that doctors that have been doctors for decades can tell the future? That's good, I need the lotto numbers. What happens when all the doctors that are already there retire?

    Yes, clearly that's exactly what he said. "Know what they're getting into" is totally the same ****ing thing as goddamned precognition. Like, when I read weather forecasts and picture what sort of flight conditions I'll likely encounter, I'm seeing the future.
