    Since I'm not a Repub I'm under no more obligation to defend their stupid ideas than the stupid ideas of Dems. I did not believe our health care system needed reform in the first place. As I have done throughout my life, I will support the law of the land and express my views at the ballot box.

    But can your charity always be counted on? Charity doesn't balance the budget. Lower overall health-care costs due to a healthier society does. The slamming of the Obesity campaign by the FLOTUS is REPULSIVE. If it were Laura or Barbara Bush, who were great, it would be a great campaign.

    Charity is a wonderful thing but it's not what you mange the needs of a society by. What you hope it can do is pick up a few of the things we can't get to. It's the extra foot of rope on the 100 feet you use to save a drowning man.

The thing I dislike is losers demonize the winners far too much.

    But, the point is in this discussion is that we as a people improved the lot of the elderly by working through government.
    That may have been the case in the beginning, before the raiding of these programs that congress did for their own pet projects. However, I would say that today, what we have is a promise that in the long run can not be fulfilled, therefore those generations that come up on the age where they are supposed to reap the benefit of their promise made through out their life, and all the money taken through the force of government may not come to fruition for them, I may be in that category, and I can tell ya, I won't be all too happy when they have forced me my whole life to pay for something that they spent and is now gone because they couldn't keep their hands off it.

    But, in any case let me just ask you, if this program would have been based on truly voluntary involvement, would it have succeeded?

    Health care is a commodity. No one has a right to it. You pay for it like food, clothing and shelter. Or receive it as charity.

    You seem to have a vision of a large central govt. providing you everything you want. That never was the purpose of the Federal Govt. and until you understand that you will always lack credibility. All this outrage over business but none over the 3.77 trillion dollar Federal Govt. and 17 trillion dollar debt. That says it all about you and other liberals.

    I am not happy with the House at all but they sure beat the alternative which we saw from 2007-2010
