    I'll take the responsibility for MY family's health care needs and pass on paying for anyone else's.

    Simple concept, wouldn't you say?

    Anyway, yes, he is a brain surgeon. Kudos to him on that. But it's compartmentalized intelligence that allows highly educated people in one area to do or say extremely stupid things in other areas. There are many fantastically intelligent members on this forum who regularly go full retard when they leave the topic of their expertise. A brain surgeon comparing the health care act to the brutal enslavement of an entire race is a good example of phenomenon.
    Ahh...you are not on this side and have to tip toe around the fact that if folks on this side criticize the president...well, that is just out and out racist talk...silly, as any sane and logical person would agree, so criticise your own side for being silly why don't you, at least once in a while for gods sake.

    Carson knows this is just the first step...just like in Africa where Africans captured their fellows. We have now been ensnared, next step is single payer [ government pays ]...that, my fellow citizen, is socialism. Comrade, then you have government in control, complete control, of our health care.... that means complete control of health outside of those lucky ones never needing any care [ and who might that be?]. Then the government has control of our bodies, our records [ why would we want that even?]... they get to make the decisions as to what medical care and treatment one gets or does not get...

    But I am supposing, since you appear clueless about it, you didn't read the brief article?

    Are you already covered by a health plan, either through your work or what you've purchased privately?

    Funny you should mention all those other evil acts/plans all by the Democratic Party side of the equation...now we have another one to contend with... should we not look at our history and find at least a little pause before we jump into the jaws of another bad policy?

    Actually I did read it. It was, unsurprisingly, a mere extension of the title. In other words, more hyperbole and ridiculousness. I say it's unsurprising because I'm old enough and experienced enough to know that when the title of an article/thread is flame bait or hysterical hyperbole nothing educational lies therein.

    I know its difficult to tell the difference but if you look closely you'll see all the smiling happy faces of free men who don't have to worry about socialized medicine taking their non-existent paychecks.

    What did you choose to do that enabled you to make enough money you were required to pay taxes?

    What kind of laws did you choose to break to require the cops to pull you over?

    What did you choose to do that required a permit or license?

    You were free. Now with Obamadon'tcare, it's impossible.

    Why do people hang to the misstatements of a doctor of a certain political lean. Not being a full time politician he is not learned in the skills of artfully lying to us.
