    Kandahar what the teaparty mentality is that public workers are there to "SERVE" them but they dont want to pay them, they think everyone makes to much money but the rich...only the rich cant make enough

    oye vey.....

    it's like the Civil Rights Act debate again.

    Rand, you gotta realize, some things sound different on television than they do when you're figuring them out in your head.

    Government can't give you anything that hasn't first been taken away from someone else.

    How is this slavery?
    Like Kandahar said even the most "regulated" systems you choose your doctor, your hospital and etc...
    Next you'll want your food, gasoline, mortgage, haircuts and beer paid for. Where does it end?

    This is the dumbest slavery comparison I've ever heard. Nobody gets conscripted in a universal health care system.

    Conservatives? This is your race card.

    Health care is a service provided by professionals, and no one has a "right" to the labor of others. The presumption that some have a right to the labor of others is the defintion of slavery.
    I know well the argument you are attempting to make, but it doesn't apply here. Universal health care is not about forcing doctors to work for free. Rand Paul knows that and so do you.
