First off, there is no one slipping through the healthcare crack in the US. It is even MANDATORY that health clinics and hospitals give ILLEGAL aliens care if they come in and here in California, have to provide someone who can interpret Spanish.
Secondly, the notion that it is the Governments job to confiscate someone else's hard earned wealth and RE-DISTRIBUTE it is a Communistic notion that can only be expressed by those who have been bullschitted by the educational system and their Governments that this is the most efficient way of caring for the poor.
Its stunning to me that anyone with a Jr. College level education can even think that Government is the answer and that it is okay to STEAL from someone and give it to someone else.
The EU and Canada are suffering from the weight of their own largess and finding it harder and harder to support their Socialist programs. Canadians have to wait some times over a month just to see a doctor for something as simple as acid reflux; yet here in this country we can get that same care today.
The nation’s families and PEOPLE have always done a much better job caring for themelves and making decision for themselves with MORE choice, and with competition, competitive prices than any other form of Government in the world. We just need Government to do TWO things to enable us to prosper; (1) defend the nation from its enemies; and (2) administer its laws. Everything else is nothing more than wasteful pandering to ignorant voters who think they can get something for nothing and create a dependent class of citizens who suckle off the Government teat at others expense and hard work.
