    Ahh so you believe Jesus teaches you to force people to buy you things you don't use.

    Can you quote a passage for that?

    You had a question I didn't attempt to answer?

    We need a system of health care, it won't pay for itself. Just because you are not using it now doesn't mean you will never need it. Time comes that you need it, you will be grateful that it is there, regardless of who pays for it.

    People who need the insurance, can afford it, and won't buy it, are a bigger part of the problem than most people realize...

    Take out the word "force" and you will find the teachings....
    not that WWJD has any real part in this discussion.

    Jesus would clearly want everyone to provide charity for those that need it.
    Jesus would never advocate that people force others to provide for those that need it, as, in Christian terms, charity must be a voluntary choice for it to mean anything.

    If I use it someday then I understand why you should have to pay for it someday, but if I'm not using it now why should you have to pay for it now?

    The government allows pre-existing conditions, so if after I pay for a physical I find that I have Parkinson's and need public assistance, then I will need you to pay for something.

    Until then, I'm not incurring a bill, so why should you pay anything?

    You aren't making much sense, but I suppose you get off on that....
    Short answer is, I shouldn't have to pay anything for YOUR illnesses, or your insurance, but those who don't pay their own way take from the system without putting anything into it. If those people enjoy good health for their entire lives, good for them....but in reality, that is not typical. If you want to wait til you need heart surgery to buy insurance, good luck with that. No company will sign you up given today's system.
    Insurance spreads the risk, sadly those of us who pay into the insurance pool are helping to support those who do not. Funny, it is the DEMS who want everyone to have insurance and help pay their own way, and the GOP that is fighting it. Guess on this issue, the DEMS are the conservatives, and the GOP are the idiots who want their children and grandchildren to pay later for the bills we incur today...

    The White House just released this response to the thread:

    This is where people without Government Health Insurance live.
