    We are in this current mess because the government created it over the last 100 years and like always it makes no sense to cover people that are nothing but a net lose.

    Imo the problem is that people haven't been living well within their means. There are so many things we buy that we don't actually need...

    Which includes me. Though interestingly enough I've never had a problem getting insurance, even when I DID pay for it 100% myself.

    Healthcare is NOT a Right; regardless of what you might think, believe, or want it to be. It never has been and never should be.

    No one is a net loss, least of all people who need healthcare.

    Hubris such as yours, might come back to bite you. There are millions of people who thought they had it all handled too, who now find themselves in your loss column.

    I won't doubt your veracity in saying you found coverage, but I have to believe that's a rare occurrence.

    We differ on that. No one should die for the inability to pay for healthcare.

So I have a great idea - lets take money from those people who create jobs and reduce our deficit so we can give a few more people unemployment benefits.
    No, the unemployment RATE has been falling for three years, no matter how you look at it. The number of unemployed is actually about half the number you quoted, and it is down more than 3 million since October of 2009.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Possible. I am very wary of ACA, but I will admit that I have witnessed many times in my life where system-changing bills were passed, there was a great wailing and gnashing of teeth, and nothing even remotely as bad as predicted bad happened.

    For the insurance companies that is exactly what they are.

    Hubris such as yours, might come back to bite you. There are millions of people who thought they had it all handled too, who now find themselves in your loss column.
    It might, but I'm still right.
