Two things I'd like to address here. This statement is misleading in itself. First off, there are things like reduced cost pay clinics out there that offer good preventive care for around $20. per visit. And before you say that the people that you are speaking of are too poor to afford that, we already have programs in place for them. One is called Medicaid.
This does not mean that there are not both real need for reform
The strawman in the liberal argument here is that conservatives want to do nothing, when in fact that is not the case at all. Real proposals have been offered time and time again to be roundly ignored by the liberals in the congress, and then the talking point that reps have offered nothing is an outright lie. The difference is that the proposals that reps offer will not give enough control over people to make a difference to power hungry demo's that want nothing out of any of this but control.
