    Well, I am sorry to hear that you are only earning 24k a year. However, I am not saying that Joe Citizen that earn's 45k a year cannot afford insurance, at the very least a high deductible catastrophic policy, I am saying that if he chooses not to buy it, and then incurs a huge medical bill for life saving treatment that cost will be passed on to everyone else because no one other than a sociopath would let the guy die simply because he was uninsured (even if he could have afforded it and chose not to).

    but being forced to do something is not charity.
    Of course it isnt...
    I dont like my tax dollars going to fund illegitimate wars.... But healthcare is a basic right. How are you going to say it is right that 45,000 people die a year because they cant afford health insurance is ok? How is your health a privatized game?

    Whatever happened to being responsible for yourself...oh ya, the 60's happened, nevermind.
    This is the 60's fault????
    I believe the first person to come up with some form of socialized medical care was John Adams...

    No, not if it's from my tax dollars. The money that is taken out of my pocket would be better spent in, say a charity to St. Jude's.

    I don't like my money to fund illegitimate wars either. I've been stoutly against Libya.
    Healthcare is nowhere in the Constitution.

    Yes, it's the 60's fault. The 60's showed a massive decline in self-responsibility.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Agree. Unless the charity was gov't-run.

    And Iraq, which was 1,000 times more expensive (literally) than Libya so far and equally as illegitimate.

    But resulted in a massive increase in kick a$$ tunes.

    You just stated earlier that you earn 24k a year. If that is the case, then you don't have to worry about it because you pay very little in federal income taxes. The only taxes you are paying to the federal government other than the gas tax, would be payroll taxes and you will directly benefit from them. We live in a democratic republic. If you disagree with what taxes are being used for you can vote for candidates that share your view. However, taxes are not theft, they are the money you pay for the services that have been collectively allocated to the public sector.

    By the way, being that charitable contributes are tax deductible, if you believe that money would be better spent going to St. Judes, donate the money to St. Jude and deduct that donation come tax time.

    Yes because all Joe citizens are just like you. Have the same lifestyle. Same numbers of sick children. same job situation....and on and on.

    Seriously, get over yourself. You can't possibly suggest that because you have health insurance that everyone else should have it. That's nothing short of myopic and disingenuous.
