    Sounds like an uncle of mine that was bit by a dog, got blood poisoning and was too tough and too cheap to go to the doctor and get a shot of penocilin.

    The original Socialist Security program expected almost everyone paying in to be dead before they got old enough to collect, as a means of keeping the costs low.

    And hell, if someone is to damn embarassed to ask their children for help, they SHOULD die before they allow the government to steal money from strangers.

    That is what amazes me that people believe that someone outside their family and outside their state should fund programs beneficial to them. You want healthcare work within your family, your charity, and then your state. I do not expect anyone to provide me my healthcare in TX nor should I fund someone's healthcare in Maine.

    I suppose. My pediatrician would just tell me to sleep and eat healthy, and I always got better. The only time he prescribed medication was when I had strep throat.

    Indeed. I am quite impressive.

    Good thing you can afford to take a week off work. Lack of empathy noted.
    I'm talking about when I was a kid.

    Anyway, I think we're over-medicating our populace, children especially. Fighting off routine diseases strengthens the immune system. Medicating simply creates resistance among new strains and reduces the efficacy of current treatments in the future.

    Considering that laws governing insurance companies, healthcare providers, professional liscensing of both insurance agents and healthcare professionals is handled at the state level it only makes sense that healthcare issues would be tackled there. Why people desire this issue to go federal is beyond me. Its a total waste, and as we can see with upcoming medicare payment cutbacks, dangerous.

    Outside their "state"?

    Why the "state"? Why should the guys living in Buffalo have to support the guys living in Albany? Why should someone in the San Fernando Valley be taxed to support thugs living in South Central Los Angeles, even?

    But you're right to a degree. People living in Loseranna, with the full knowledge that a hurrycane is going to come someday and wreck their state, should be saving money, and their state should be saving money, and investing in survival gear suitable for the expected disasters, and they should neither expect Californians, who obviously have chosen to not live in Loseranna, to pay for their expected natural disasters, nor should they expect to have to pay for the little troubles Californians enjoy from time to time.

    This is called being a mature responsible adult...and behaving like one.

    They can ask for charity when they need it, they shouldn't be turning to the federal government to demand it.

    Got any proof of that or are you just testing out your revisionist propaganda?

    Are you sure some of them weren't childless for various reasons like war, high infant mortality, death from disease, children without any money to help? No of course not, it must certainly be that they are just dumb lazy farmers eh?

    I'm sorry about your cousin's wife. That's a devastating loss. After losing the mother of children to an illness with a late diagnosis, one would think the responsible thing for the father of 2 small children to do is to get his ass to the dr at the first sign of illness. Does Billy Bob (wait, you said he was black), does Tyrone know about after hours urgent care facilities? He could have gone in after work.
    This is a prime example of people running their mouth because they are so happy to run someone down that they neglect to actually pay attention.

    1) I'm not a liberal
    2) His wife died almost 2 years after he had his illness.
