But you still accept its help every time you go to the doctor, even if its not listed on your bill.Trust me, I'd love to get the government out of the health care industry entirely.

I cant be the only one who read her 'story' and was pissed off. Or am I?Two years ago, Spike Dolomite Ward and her husband had to choose between paying their mortgage or keeping their health insurance. They kept the house, and now at 49 Ward has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She didn't know how she'd afford months of expensive treatment, until he discovered the Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan, which is part of Obama's healthcare plan. Now she's publicly "outed" herself in the hopes that she can teach ObamaCare opponents that the uninsured aren't just lazy freeloaders.
Money was tight - and like countless other people - they had to make choices where to cut back money. Somehow that came down to the house VS their healthcare (nevermind cellphone, internet, tv, etc etc etc).
So - naturally - they CANCELED their own insurance knowing all too well the possibility of something bad happening when they're uninsured.
But then she claims that "not all people without insurance are lazy freeloaders" and that "If you still have a good job with insurance, that doesn't mean that you're better than me, more deserving than me or smarter than me. It just means that you are luckier."
She's a ****ING DIP**** who put their general healthcare underneath the possibility of SELLING THEIR HOME. Holy poo - since when are homes that important? Would it have killed them to just let go of it or rent it out? . . . and she breaks it down to being 'lucky' or not? What about all the other people who were in their same situation and chose to just keep the insurance they originally had even if it meant letting go of something else?
Well - they most certainly wouldn't have been having to appologize to the president and make total asses out of their selves - now would they?

Convictions are not always good just because they're convictions. A conviction in the absence of logic is just an obstinate ego trip.
You can try to dance around it and say it's not "direct" all you like, but you're wrong, and it is. If the government weren't directly involved with medical care at virtually all levels you'd probably be dead already. It doesn't get any more direct than that.
