    How about sticking to my point? Thread's subject line says that a tea party crowd shouted "Let him die!" How many is a crowd to you?
    No one ever shouted "let him die." What scumbags some in here are...

    But then again, what do you expect from the left?

You don't like the way they are spending your money, tough! You can pay your taxes or go to jail (which further increases costs by increasing the costs of collections). If you try to change things through the political process then they will yell and holler that you don't really care about helping anyone but yourself. Further, once a program is initiated a special interest is created that is financed by the rent seekers and provided with foot soldiers from the freeloaders, so political change is almost impossible. But, it seems the people are getting fed up with the failed policies that only create more problems.

    The other benefit is that more people who can't afford healthcare won't get it, which will mean the hospital have no need to spread the loss from these people onto other people and raising the costs for everyone. Either way you slice it, it involves rationing, it's either rationing of "quality" (if you see less say in the number of tests and treatments you can have as and when you want as less quality) across a wider base - like the Europeans, or it's rationing of amount of people with access to it and concentrating the highest quality in the top income group - like countries like India, Thailand and others, where Americans might enjoy good "healthcare tourism" and the poor can practice their freedom by selling their organ in the black market.

    Lefties are scumbags, Zing!

    No one shouted "let him die!", but a bunch of people shouted "yeah!" when the question was asked. What's the difference?

    Are you trying badly to parse words here or simply being intellectually dishonest. Here is the video

    Tea Party Fanatics Cheer 'Let Him Die' - YouTube

    At the 50- second mark, Blitzer pointedly asks "if the society should just let him die" ..... there are shouts of approval for that course of action. To pretend otherwise and hide behind the fact that Blitzer said let him die and the tea party audience agreed with him is less than honest. I did not hear any tea party audience member shout all LET HIM DIE. I clearly heard some agree enthusiastically with Blitzer when he asked if the man should die.

    You are quibbling about a distinction without a difference.

    That didn't happen; make up your reality as usual.

    So one or two is a bunch to you, or maybe a crowd like the OP states?

    Answer: You don't. You're just seizing an opportunity to broadstroke a political group with which you disagree.
    Bwahahahahaha...they have to be liberal plants of course!!!!!
