    The only reason that the Republicans have been increasing the debt ceiling is due the leadership was pushing on doing so. Now the Republicans in the House are demanding that they do a showdown and the Republican leaders are relenting.

    so if it has no moral obligation, why does the government have to provide law enforcement or punish crime. after all it is apparently not their obligation to enforce what is right or wrong.

    health insurance makes profits when people don't get sick. they are gambling on the fact that someone will not get sick.

    Even Warren Buffett says to dump Obamacare. It's a POS.

    Human life is worth even less if there is no profit in it. Look how the communists treated their people.

    This is what you're not getting. Government doesn't have to provide law enforcement. It's tax payers desire that to be a necessary function for society as a whole, not on an individual basis forced as a duty of a private entity...

    of coarse it is...and here it is.
