    What church or charity do you know of that will pay an individual's medical expenses? Same goes for their prescription medicine(s)? Sure, there are hospitals that will take on surgeries pro bono on a case-by-case basis, but those are few and so very far between. So, what you're suggesting, though noble, just isn't realistic.

    Now...

    Promote v. 1. To contribute to the progress, development, or growth of; further; encourage.

    I can certainly see where the health care bill "contributes to the progress" of this country by "developing" healthier citizens, thereby advancing the "growth" of a nation. Makes perfectly good sense to me.

    So you think that offering the uninsured medical insurance will change personal living habits and what people eat, smoke, or how they exercise? Like all naive individuals you somehow believe this govt. program is going to save money when the reality is no social program has ever cost what was intended, did what was intended, and solved a problem.

    Different day, same old rhetoric coming from supporters of bigger govt. You just don't have a clue as to the true role of govt. when it comes to personal responsibility issues.

    As I stated, you don't have a clue as to what you are talking about but that doesn't stop you from thinking you are an expert on every topic

    Just a question, if you didn't have a clue, wouldn't you think others didn't?

    I was willing to give you the benefit of doubt but now realize that you are naive, gullible, very misinformed. Why do you buy the rhetoric from an Administration that has lied to you on every subject?

    My experience gives me credibility as well as historical data.

    Does this mean you can't answer the question?

    It means I answered the question which insinuated that I didn't have a clue. Experience and history say it is I that has a clue and you don't.

    In spite of all the historical evidence that shows govt. waste, fraud, abuse along with a 13 trillion dollar debt you continue to believe what Obama Administration tells you. Where will you ever wake up?

    Try reading the question.

    SORRY this is response to Misterman:

    Welfare of the States..!!!

    Remember Jr. high-school composition? Define the term paragraph then re-read the document with at least that Jr. High level of comprehension...

    NO WHERE in the CONSTITUTION does ANY concern of the citizens become a duty of the federal government (or until the 14th)... NO WHERE...


    BTW is there any level of civility you DO possess?
