    Here we come down play our problems because obviously theirs is worse so obviously that means we have to pay for them. Here comes the fun.

    Like I have a responsibility for anyone other then me and my family? Oh right, to liberals I do. I don't, sorry.

    And btw, nice show of compassiate behavior you got there. Death is better than being poor. Surely.

    Tell me when that choice makes sense, and tell me when these safety nets start to reach their goal.

    I'm guessing my work is your right to provide your healthcare. Ofcourse, this whole healthcare is a right business is a bunch of gibberish.

    What if the patient is also a tax payer? What if the patient pays more in taxes than you do? Wouldn't he essentially be paying for his own health care if he's been paying taxes for years? You're paying taxes anyway, why do you care if some of it goes to health care? You're already paying for medicare which is even more expensive.

    In the case of health care, you can either buy a private company's product, or you can die. Even if I had the money to pay the hospital/doctor/pharmacist out of my own pocket, I would still be dependent on these private companies for my survival, I cant grow a health care tree in my back yard. No wonder America is stubbornly clinging to privatized medicine, we've got the largest, most powerful pharmaceutical and insurance lobbies in the world.

    I understand, but I'm not arguing for an effective privatized health care system. And what exactly is alternative health care?

    So is assuming that people can't care for themselves, because the American's are in DESPERATE need of their government.

    So, I take it you are in favor of the insurance mandate then?

    Thats the confusing thing...the gop is fighting the insurance mandate...yet when asked what happens to people that choose not to buy insurance that can afford it...and something catastrophic happens where bills run into the hundreds of thousands or like in that poor girl terry schiavos case MILLIONS..who pays...now its all very convenient to say let him/her die...but what if they are in a coma and need constant care...what then...america gets in the business of murdering them...lol.....seriously this whole thing is such bs...Ron Paul is a nutcase and what he yaps about most of it will never come to be....Ron Paul is living in a 40 yr old lalaland...and his supporters are living a dream that they wish would be reality
