Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
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.
Now I'm a bit puzzled as to why the same does not apply to government-funded insurance. People pay a premium, and the funds go into a pool and it's distributed according to need, no? So, basically, what is the difference between both? Catholics will not be forced to use birth control, so I fail to see why it's even an issue.
"There is a lot of talk coming from CitiGroup about how Dodd-Frank isn't perfect, So let me say this to anyone listening at Citi —I agree with you. Dodd-Frank isn't perfect. It should have broken you into pieces." -- Elizabeth Warren
"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."

Lots of things that appear in regular insurance packages are elective. Are you suggesting we pare down Obamacare to only things that are specifically life-saving? I might agree with that.It's a complete non-sequitur. The two are not alike. One is elective. The other is life-saving.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
