You are a "sloth amd a slacker", dependent on government and the generosity of the rich (only ones who have the money to pay the taxes to support your mountain of lifetime personal and medical care.
    You better hope they're in a generous mood.

    As for whether people hate or not, you have no clue, and its not your call.
    yeah that is a realistic argument for a communist government

    He's right though it would be ironic and fitting if you needed some medical treatment, it wasn't covered and you went bankrupt trying to pay for it. It would be karma from all of your posts! :P

    Maybe that's because you haven't been someone who had a master's degree, 2 skilled trades, and recently found himself (after 2 years of looking everywhere else, and not having any friend or relative connections) applying for a job at Burger King, only to be told by the manager that he wasn't taking applications. When you asked why, he opened a file drawer, and showed you a stack of applications 2 feet thick, and said "here's 700 applications taken in over the past 3 months. Why take any more ?" And you say "Uh, yeah." and walk away. Understand now ?

    I have a rather large insurance policy. But I don't feel a need to steal from others to pay for me.

    Yes that makes logical sense. If someone has a few grand in the bank and his insurance doesn't cover his surgery what is he supposed to do? Take out LOANS for life saving surgery?

    life isn't fair but dragging down other people isn't the answer. we make failure way too easy in this country and it has created a massive explosion of people who think the government exists to take care of them and others exist to pay for what they want

    what is really funny is that you parasite class enablers constantly whine about billionaires yet your schemes really impact the upper middle class the most. why do you bitch about people like Bill Gates when you plan on screwing over your doctor or (assuming you had a job) the guy who once employed you
    If it makes you feel any better, I'd be more interested in taxing the pants off multimillion $ and billion $ incomes (and wealth) than the lower rich. Incidenatally, I wouln't call someone whose income is $250,000/year, middle class.
