    Apparently, understanding the concept of 'insurance' isnt one of your strong points.

    I guess my term life insurance has been a waste because I only can die once... and I have to do it during the term.

    We can afford Medicare and more. We just need to properly fund it. It's all in how it's done.

    Right. We can't even fund medical care for a small percentage of the population and now we are expanding it to the entire population. Brilliant idea.
    There is only one basic human right, the right to do as you damn well please. And with it comes the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences.

    But we have been, and rather well considering we're taking on the most needy population without full support. You might try looking at it a little more. Open the mind. research a bit.

    Rather well? You call a program that is suppose to take care of a small portion of our population being bankrupt after less than a generation doing rather well?

    It's not bankrupt. And it has been asked to a lot, a whole lot, and has done it. Yes, I call that rather well all things considered.
