    So see it as a service if you must, you are only denying yourselves the service or rights others have in other countries.

    And that's from before Obamacare was even thought of.

    When did they issue such an edict?
    Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?

    So rights are something you have to give me, not something I have to give you.

    So then you do not have a right to life? If the argument is that the state can stop a women from terminating a pregnancy, are you going to argue that the state has no interest in providing care for that life before or after birth?

    From another perspective, is the general welfare clause going to be limited to laws that do not involve paying for care to those who cannot afford to do so. Are you going to reverse federal tax payment already made to hospitals for unpaid medical care?

    You are playing a semantic game with a concept that already has been established in our constitution. The state is mandated to care for its population, we mandated that we care for all of us.

    If you like the system in France, move. I believe it was 1986 when it was required that hospitals treat anyone who came in the door. The current employer based insurance system began when government froze wages during WWII, and government interference never works out very well...

    We would have loved to be included. Too bad that demo's that had total control over government chose to lock those doors. As for "death panels", we will see won't we? And "offing gramma" really? You want to go there? Remember that ad about Ryan? Who did that? Repubs or demo's?

    I thought the argument was that the state should not be forced to provide a service.

    So you do recognize that the state can force for services to be provided.
