    Re: Sen. Rand Paul: Right To Health Care Is Like Believing In "Slavery"

    How Rand Paul was able to make such a connection between health care and slavery is beyond me.

    First off, we don't have nationalized nor socialized health care for the civilian population. No public option; no universal health care.

    Second, I didn't know doctors still made house calls!

    Third, no one is forcing anyone to see a doctor they don't want to see or received medical treatment they don't want.

    Fourth, States still have some control over how health insurance markets will function within their boarders. Insurance companies may now come under state-sponsored health insurance exchanges (a Republican idea, BTW), but it won't be the federal government that runs them. The PPACA only sets the standard bywhich the HIEs are to be organized; it's the individual States responsibility to operate and maintain them according to the law.

    Fourth, the mandate may require folks to get health insurance, but it certainly doesn't tell you what insurance company to buy from.

    Rand Pauls comments are nothing more than unnecessary race baiting.

    Shh, don't you know, slavery is ONLY slavery when white people enslave black people, anything else isn't actually "slavery"
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No, slavery is slavery when it's slavery. Calling things that are not slavery, you know where you actually get paid for your work, is not slavery. This is some stupid **** here.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    he didn't call it slavery, he said it is "like slavery" as in having some similar qualities, while not actually equaling something.

    you are right, this thread does contain some stupid **** here.

    He was making a comparison, to explain how you cannot have a RIGHT to healthcare. Instead of taking a moment to think about that, and why he said it, you're stuck on "OMG it's NOT SLAVERY LOL" mode. Which is the real tragedy here.

    He's making a stupid and false comparison. If he were serious, he find something that might actually work as a comparison. As it is, he has done nothing but hurt his own position.

    Like is a comparison, and it is not like slavery in any way. Any one who says it is is saying some really stupid ****.

    you never supported his positions, and you clearly have no ability to understand the mindset of people that did support his opinions. so what you just wrote, is pure bull****.

    if you believe you have a right to someones labor, you do support a position that is very much "like slavery"

    I understand the hand-wringing, it sucks for you because this makes you a bad person.
