    Your question isn't in any way relevant to my position on this issue, and so there's no need whatsoever to for me to address it.

    But, if you're -so- desprate for self-gratification that you need to mal-characterize my statement, above, as some sort "fear" I might have, of you or otherwise, then you be my guest!

    I caught that quickly, too. I love when Goobie clams up because he knows he just worked himself into a corner and he starts mindlessly demanding that you stick to his talking points.

    It is, and i have explained to great lengths as to why, and yet you have not, in one single way, countered my premise in a legitimate way.

    Tax = Fine: When you consider pigouvian taxation. If you cannot prove this incorrect, or at least inconsistent, than you have to accept it. Being that in the context of our debate, tax = fine, are you opposed to taxing those who go without health care insurance?

    But, if you're -so- desprate for self-gratification that you need to mal-characterize my statement, above, as some sort "fear" I might have, of you or otherwise, then you be my guest!
    You do all the work for me/us.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    You hurt those who pay for your health care. You hurt your children if you cannot provide insurance for them. You hurt our economy and tax base if you are taken out of work because of an otherwise preventable medical condition.

    I understand it is hard for someone with insurance to imagine what it would be like for someone who doesn't. Compassion isn't really a right wing word anymore. You took it out of the political lexicon and replaced it with rhetoric like "terror" and "axis of evil."
    and so it goes...

    Yes, yes you do.
    So, why do you support the idea that I should pay for someone else's health care? Why should -I- be hurt because YOU can't pay?
