It is not my duty to see that your desires come to bear fruit and it is not in my interest to spend my money on whatever desire you dream up. The government has duties and one of those is to act in the peoples defense. They have no duty to make sure you have food on your table of to make sure you don't die or whatever illness you might have.

    The problem is, the cost is too great. And I'm not just talking about money.

    The initial Grassley amendment would have required Congress to go through the exchanges for their health care. Reid nearly screwed everyone in Congress with his slapdash rewrite of that amendment.

    Re: Ted Cruz going on Obamacare

    People here can make all the excuses they want. That he took ACA because it was the law, the this and that, it's all BS. The fact is he had other options besides ACA.

    One option is no insurance. And I could say that no insurance would be the best option for him and his family. And then he'd just pay the fine. But then if something catastrophic happened I could be like the GOP candidates at a debate in 2012 who in response to a question at the debate on what to do with people with no insurance when a person in the audience screamed out 'LET HIM DIE' and not one of the Republican candidates in that debate seemed shocked nor did any correct the the person who said that.

    But I'm not that heartless.

    Ah, again, I don't ascribe to either party, both do alot of stupid stuff, but the GOP is far more insane and hypocritical.

    The cost is too great? "Virtually all of Europe has either publicly sponsored and regulated universal health care or publicly provided universal healthcare. The public plans in some countries provide basic or "sick" coverage only; their citizens can purchase supplemental insurance for additional coverage. Countries with universal health care include Albania, Austria, Andorra, Belarus,[49] Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova,[50] Monaco, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal,[51] Romania, Russia, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine,[52] and the United Kingdom.[53]"
    I want the government to help those who need help, not be everyone's "mommy and daddy" that sounds ridiculous and is a pitiful attempt to attack my position. What cost other then money?

    Indeed, I feel like the point's being lost here--he ought to be commended for not passing on the best available option for his family as some sort of craven political ploy (just because the fact of what that option happens to be--the dreaded Obamacare!--is politically inconvenient for him). Family above politics--that's good!
