“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
“Certain types of loudmouthism should be a capital offense among decent people.” ― Robert A. Heinlein, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress
They already DO provide emergency care to the poor, it's been a requirement for decades. The problem is not in having to provide care for the poor, but that in so many cases, it's not a true emergency, so the hospitals are providing care based on liability fears, and to protect their own asses, and everyone else is absorbing the cost.
"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."

Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
We're paying MORE for LESS compared to other countries and you people want to try to make an economic argument. It's absolutely absurd.

"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
regulations are made to secure rights, states do have the power to regulate business, which is what a hospital is and in becoming a doctor someone in the field of health one takes an Hippocratic oath to care for those that need help, .......that being emergency care in this case.
no one should force to care for people when it is something which is not an emergency, not life treating.

I am the President see me smile
I painted my house and all of our rental houses. I installed the insulation in my house. I mulched our garden, I weeded our garden, I trimmed our hedges, I cleaned the septic back-ups that flooded the basements of our rental houses, I cleaned the water damage, and I've done so much more.
You don't know me.
Besides, this summer I'll be getting a part time job.
And you know what?
When I go into the work force full time my opinion is going to stay exactly the same. If you need health care, pay for it yourself instead of taking from others. That is because I don't believe in leeching like you do.
