    You mean a federal taxpayer liability when people who can't afford health insurance end up in the emergency room and it ends up costing all of us in the end.

    If you want health care to be a privilege then maybe you should move to a different country. Americans overwhelmingly want at least basic health care to be available to all Americans. And that means it is cheaper and wiser to provide for those who can't get insurance for themselves.

    I hear there are lots of third world nations which support your particular brand of conservative ideology.

    Why is that a Federal Taxpayer responsibility and not local responsibility?

    Actually you would be better served living in a different country where you can get cradle to grave coverage, make less money, and pay higher taxes.

    Your liberal ideology has bankrupted a lot of countries and is now working on this one. Congratulations, you got your man in the WH. This empty suit community organizer couldn't be further from the basics upon which this country was built. The vast majority in this country don't agree with yours or his vision so maybe you both ought to leave.

    My vision for America was a public option. That wasn't Obama's vision and my vision was supported by a not only a majority of Americans but by a majority of doctors, nurses, and economists. So if you want to pull out the ol' ad populum argument after I spanked you with it for several posts once before, then feel free. We can play that game again.

    I didn't get my vision for America and you didn't get yours, so I guesss we are equally unhappy.

    If you are an example of the education system in this country today then we really are in a mess. This country wasn't built on your vision but it was built on mine. Unfortunately we have a leftwing in this country which wants to undo that original intent of our founders and they have people like you supporting them. What a shame! The truly educated elite have no education at all but worse they have no concept of personal responsibility, individual wealth creation, and the reality that some people are going to fail. Like far too many you have yours so basically the hell with everyone else who will become dependent on the taxpayers for their own existence, and it is politicians that will administer those tax dollars in a way that they keep their job instead of doing their job.

    This country and no other country can fund your vision without destroying the economy. Countries all over Europe are rejecting your vision but it does seem that arrogance of a liberal has no bounds. Never have I seen a liberal accept failure even though every liberal program has failed. they cost more than intended, do less than intended, never solve a problem and always grow in size. you got "your" President and the American people are waking up. Hopefully not too late.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. Tell it to Costa Rica, Canada, and many other countries around the world.

    Such arrogance...

    I'll say it again only this time publicly...

    If you really feel that this country has gone to hell in a hand basket, you should either run for public office and do everything you can to invoke your brand of politics or leave. It really is just that simple.

    Yeah, yeah, millions of people are trying to get into Costa Rica because it is such a utopia. Why not make it millions plus one?

    You do not understand personal responsibility and what made this the greatest country on earth.

    I don't have to run for public office as I live in TX, the best move I ever made in my life. It is one of the few states with rising employment and conservative values.

    the people of TX understand personal responsibility. Obama lost TX by over a million votes. Thanks for the suggestion but I will stay here.

    Stealing millions of miles of land from natives and slave labor? Not getting involved in two world wars until Europe had bombed the hell out of itself?

    Funny, your vision of an America of personal responsibilty is rather idealistic.

    My vision of America took care of my family and allowed me to prosper due to my own efforts. Yours is one of another less productive, less profitable one. Don't know who is filling your head with this distorted view of America but I am done with you. One of these days you will grow up, I did.
