    That is the way govt. programs work, like a drug dealer, get people dependent and then take more control. For some reason there are never any consequences in your world after all that govt. spending.

    Tell yourself whatever you must, but the program works, and people support the program. Instead of complaining that your paying more for more, you might work to balance what is done with how we pay for it.

    Growing up I learned personal responsibility. I don't expect you to pay for my healthcare, why do you think it is my responsibility to pay for yours? I asked you a question which of course you ignored, who pays the cost of the uninsured, the Federal govt. or the state governments.

    Would you rather the uninsured just be put out on the streets?

    but it is obvious you have no clue about the civic obligation of a citizen
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    How about answering the question that Boo refuses to answer? Who pays the cost of the uninsured, the Federal Govt. or the states?

    What liberals do is look to the Federal Govt. to implement programs they deem important when the states refuse to do it. They certainly don't understand civic obligation thus always look to the Federal Govt. to overrule state issues but only when a liberal supports the issue that the majority in states approve it.

    close,
    it should have read:
    What citizens do is look to the Federal Govt. to implement programs they deem important
    but your ramblings confirm what was already known .... you have NO understanding of civic duty
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed
