    Charity. People are charitable when they are not forced to be that way.

    Don't see the connection. He raised the money and he still died. It just shows that medical care is not perfect and people still die even when they can afford the care.

    The guy could afford health insurance with the money he was getting being campaign manager. He made a choice to not insure himself and paid for it. Its called life, I know, how rude for me to point out.

    You keep using the word "force". It's not a matter of forcing you to pay for someone's health care, it's a matter of deciding where to spend the tax money that you're already paying. Besides, you're already paying for expensive health care programs like medicare anyway.

    It's a strange argument. "Socialism won't work because people naturally don't want to share. Charity will work because people will naturally share"

    He didn't raise the money.

    His family was left with a $350,000 bill because he was uninsured. On the subject of force, why should his family be forced to pick up the bill because he wasn't insured himself?

    What a load of manure.
    As if charitable donations could even begin to fill the gaps in this nation's horrendous health care system. Hilarious.

    It has to do with wanting tax dollars going to you, not for services for other people. Its about using tax dollars to promote the protection of rights and liberties, not general services.

    Its not really. The one is related to people you know or care for on issues that you actually want to do something about, the other is talking about people you don't care much for on issues that you couldn't care less about. See?
