    The title of the thread is as follows, "Should hospitals be forced to give emergency care to the poor?". Do you perhaps realize that people are the ones that provide the care?

    1.) yes correct that is the title
    2.) i simply realize that what you stated and what the thread title is are factually not the same but now i see where you are making your mistake

    hospitals having to give emergency care =/= mandating care

    let me know if theres anything else i can help you out with you're welcome

    I agree 100% and it is hilarious you thought they were the same or what you said made any sense what so ever since facts, english and definitions of words all show otherwise.

    You really should wiki that and read the specifics. It's not an all access pass.

    No, it's not an all access pass. Who suggested it was, hmm? It's for ****ing emergencies, not headaches and stubbed toes.

    Whether or not emergency medical care is a right is the topic of this thread.

    Its distorted thinking. For one thing, the price of food and clothing are vastly different than emergency medical care. As an example, one of my kids was hit while riding a bike by a man who was about 80 years old that did not have on his glasses. It cost around $70,000 for a three or four day hospital stay. In contrast you could by a $3 bag of rice and a $3 bag of beans that would last you that long or maybe longer. So your thinking is distorted.
