    Think before you speak...
    Yes, we should not pay for older people to live another ten years, they should die as well. If they can afford their own expensive care, great, if not, well then they should just pass on. We made this promise to people to gain votes, no one ever considered how much this would cost, we all get old, our bodies all wear out, and it is very expensive to keep these people alive.

    I would ask you to think.....but that seems impossible.

Yet it is these same people who complain because they can't pay their electric bill... give me a break.

    In Mexico, people live within their means, and don't rely on the government to provide for their families. That's the way it used to be here in the US. When I was a kid, families did everything possible to avoid the shame of having to ask the government for anything. It was a matter of pride. Today, lower income families see government assistance as a lifestyle, rather than a last resort.

    .
    Uh, high rates of illiteracy and a more dysfunctional government can contribute to that self-sufficiency out of necessity. The people of Mexico don't really have a sense that things could be better because they have been politically and economically isolated by more influential factions. The most revolutionary action one can take is to try and make it big in the United States, and so long as they have that outlet I doubt will be seeing any more radical activity.

    Besides, you are exaggerating the rosiness of the situation of the American poor. What you are describing is more like the lower middle class.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I know you are clowning around, but eugenics have nothing to do with it, these people are not born fat, lazy, or addicted, these are choices, choices you and I should not be forced at gunpoint to support.

    We don't live in a time where we can be morally responsible an expect to dig ourselves out. if you've lived a long life, that's more than most people have gotten. We should make their suffering as painless as possible, but we should not artificially prolong their lives. They aren't paying anything into the system and are getting something out.

    It's not the nice thing to say but damn, we can't afford to take care of everyone!

    See if this makes sense to you...

    Why in the hell would someone write a story about how people think the government should pay for their health care plan, and leave out the fact that the majority of the people don't approve of that plan in the first place? If the majority don't want it, then isn't kind of silly to make how people want it payed for, the centerpiece of the story?

    This story smells more like someones political agenda, than it does news.

    .
    Because it's intriguing to see what people's opinions are on specific pieces of health care are and if the article covered every opinion on every part of the health care the point and message of the piece would be diluted.
