    OK, let's have some fun.

    By denying those 40,000,000 insurance, you want them to struggle/suffer [struffle] and/or die?

    You don't need to be so sympathetical, NP.

Then suddenly, it became not just an ill-considered policy that conservatives had changed their mind about...but an unconstitutional, tyrannical, socialist policy. And this about-face all took place over the span of a few months which happened to coincide with the Democrats putting an individual mandate in the ACA. Imagine that! I'm sure it was just a coincidence, even though Charles Grassley, Orrin Hatch, Robert Bennett, and Mitt Romney were all pushing an individual mandate as late as summer 2009.

    I can't. This is important.

    Ok, make a point for point comparison between Cuba's healthcare system and ours.

    Simply being "free" doesn't win. I have a buddy that thinks that if get's stoned and spits on your ailment, that you will be healed. And he doesn't charge.

    Straight form Rush Limbaugh. He was saying this same thing today. I imagine most of the right-wing nuts here live and die on the words of people like Limbaugh.

    Actually they don't. Most liberals would still prefer single-payer or a public option. They settled for an individual mandate, ironically, as an olive branch to conservatives.

    politics is funny business... it never fails to entertain me.
    The difference, of course, is that liberals were willing to tolerate the individual mandate in order to try to achieve a political compromise...whereas conservatives were willing to abandon the individual mandate in order to AVOID compromise.
