We are dealing with a population that is morally and spiritually (not in the religious sense) devoid of reality.



    This entire effing legislation is based on emotion and ideology.

    Many of the sick in our society love their illness. It gives meaning to their lives, and is the reason for their existence. This is as much a mental/psychological problem as a financial one.
    I'll gladly trade my heart condition with someone who wants to be sick like this.

    Any takers?

    Does anyone else see the total implosion of logic here?
    I'd like to get that figured clarified - I was just listening to Rush and he said the figure is 2% of your income or $2,000 a year, which ever is greater. That is all I know about it.

    I could go and find you several within a week or two.

    Oh it will take a week or two? I guess this large segment you speak of isn't so large.

    Well I'm off to Wal Mart to pick up my 'scripts.

    Medical field, thus mental health. The two are closely tied together.

    Incorrect, I did address it.


    On the contrary, you are the one crying about being forced to purchase insurance.
    Yeah, I have to pay a fine for living. Imagine being upset about that.

    Everything is scare
    WTF?


    Blanket statements about "government care" only apply to the US now? Fascinating.
    Is the US identical to other countries or not?

    That is what you have been arguing for....
    No, it's not.

    You could have fooled me. All you have presented me with are normative rants without any positive support. You are going to have to do much better.
    Get your head out of the sand or out of your ass, whichever it is, and maybe you'll be able to understand the evidence that's been presented repeatedly.

    If your only argument is "you're wrong, I'm right" then we're pretty much done here.

    Why Does Health Care Cost So Much?
    Come back when you want to address my post.
