    You dont see the problem with that? How does one who has nothing contribute to the system? But if you can work you should have to to get aid.

    So let's raise your taxes 4.6% too. I'm sure you can find a way to manage. Otherwise, it's greed!
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Whose fault is it that they have nothing? We offer free education. If you drop out of school, if you get involved in drugs and gangs, if you impregnate or get impregnated out of wedlock and can't afford to care for your children, if you break the law and end up in prison, whose fault is that again?

    Im talking of those that nature has left helpless or who have been injured to the point they cannot contribute. Let me add that no charity should be given by the Federal government. Not even food stamps. Its a state and local matter.

    That's why I specifically excluded those people who were mentally or physically handicapped. Anyone who is able-bodied but who has screwed up their own life and now wants me to pay for them can kiss my curvy yellow backside. I'd say no money should be given by *ANY* government, it should be a wholly private charity matter.

    You obviously have not studied single payer systems in the rest of the industrialized world. People do pay for their health care through a single payer system. And no one has proposed a health care system that cost less.

    How could that possibly happen? With our constant 40% federal deficits of over $1 trillion dollars/year what could go wrong? If we run short of "stimulus" funds then simply print more money and lower the interest rates to actually pay our banks to take it.
