    The problem is you're a righty. and many of your ilk have sold their souls to the religious right and all their hypocrisy. You can't separate yourself from the influence and the relationship. Good luck trying.

    Already have.

    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    Because everybody is a victim of their surroundings. You're right.

    Stickin with the actual question posed...who is more selfish...those that believe the individual in question should live with the consequences of their choices or the 30 year old with a good job that chooses not to get insurance?

    This pretty clearly illustrates the folly of insisting insurance companies cover people regardless of preexisting conditions. Its no different than choosing to not carry car insurance, wrapping your car around a tree, and then expecting an insurance company to grant you a full coverage policy and pay for your own stupidity

    We are simply NOT a society which will stand idly by and watch a person die due to lack of medical attention, food or manty other things. When somebody voices the opinion - as this person did at the debate on Monday - that we should do it - it is like nails on the chalkboard.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    As logic often does to emotional types.

    When a person opts not to be insured, he should not be insured (SCREEEEEEEECH!). People should be free to decide they don't want medical care, or to only purchase what medical care they personally want to pay for (SCREEEEEEEECH!). A major part of the cost problem is a profound lack of cost containment incentives (SCREEEEEEEECH!).

    Secondly, they guy should've had health insurance. Why should we have to pay for his lack of responsibility?
    Oh yeah.............that is where I got that.

    BTW, you are aware that the insurance mandate was a Republican plan as an alternative to UHC that the rest of the industrialize world has, right?
