    When the Democrats wreck the US economy to provided rationed services to some of the population, health care will still not be a right. It will, however, have become an immortal entitlement.

    Medicare is bankrupt, or will be soon.

    So you want the same system that went bankrupt on the small scale to be imposed on the large scale so it can still be bankrupt.

    They both won't work, so it doesn't really matter if they're interchangeable or not.

    Fairer, too.

    And I haven't even addressed the ridiculousness of that 40,000,000 figure.

    Next you'll be telling us there's only 12 million illegal invaders in this country, but 6 million homeless.

    Medicare is going bankrupt, and nobody "appreciates" it, just like the VA hospital system.

    Thank god you're here to repeat what I said 10 posts ago. I had almost forgotten my stance on this until you reminded me.

    If you read this thread and conclude that that's my position, then you are an absolute failure at reading comprehension.

    Thanks, this was very relevant and helpful.
