    The main difference is I live in the real world.

    I was born in Texas in 1952, but you are welcome to the state, after all it's the conservatives who have made it the dump it is becoming. By the time I leave Texas I will be on Medicare, so a continued thank you for your federal tax money I will spend in the future.

    Interesting, so you believe this country was built on a faceless Federal Taxpayer to fund your healthcare program? As for Medicare apparently you don't realize that you and your employer contributed to SS and Medicare throughout your work career and that is what you are supposed to get when you retire, not someone else's contribution. Let me know what your neighbor says about paying for your healthcare?

    I told you, you're my neighbor and evidently you don't like it. Too bad you will have to deal with it. Don't worry, we all have difficulties in life to overcome, I'm sure you will do fine.

    No, I am not your neighbor and it isn't uncommon for people like you to fail to go face to face with anyone to ask for money yet go to a faceless taxpayer because that is the easy way out. The advent of the computer makes going faceless a lot easier

    Don't you work in the medical community, a nurse, PA or something?

    Yep, that is what happens when you let Southern Conservatives into your party. They stain your fabric and it takes generations to completely rid yourself of the stench, as you so well point out here.

    May I point out the private insurance works on this principal. You are either a funder or beneficiary. We do not have pay-as-you-go health care, (although prior to the PPACA, we had it more than most countries as you could be rolled out the system with a pre-existing condition). No one pays dollar for dollar on his/her healthcare. You pay your premiums, which have baked in a estimated probability that you get a disease or condition that is financially catastrophic. Since the premium is based on an expected value (probability * cost * mark-up), should you actually get the disease, you neighbor pays the freight. If, instead, he gets the disease instead of you, you pay for your neighbor. The only difference between private health insurance and a government health insurance is the profit motive (which can be a good or a bad thing)..

    Except that private insurance had one major difference -- consent.

    Do you live under the belief that you have to give an affirmative consent for all things in our nation in which you participate in one way or another?

    A lot of National defense spending is done without my consent also, but themes the breaks.
