    no we don't.
    I think if you are on the public dole and you breed you should be severely fined or have your benefits cut-the children put in a foster home so they don't suffer but you do

    No it doesn't.
    People, specifically those that were born with disabilities, didn't ask to be this way, it's a product of random nature, that they don't have all the faculties of a human born without a disability.
    It's rather a statement of fact, that they tend to be the lesser among us, but my personal beliefs hold me to support them for this fault of nature.

    That's real unfairness, it's not made up.
    Something the current health care bill never addressed is how the government of the U.S.A. puts limits on the life of those who are disabled.
    All the while, everyone else whines about expensive premiums and having to pay for birth control.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I fail to see how mandating insurance does not impose costs on the public.

    For everyone getting a subsidy on the premium, the public is paying. Anyone under 400% of poverty is getting a subsidy.
