    It doesnt change the fact that these unfunded mandates are what drive up costs and deficits.


    The question you need to ask is how does someone's right to health care exist with such force that it take precedence over the right of health care providers to be paid for the goods and services they provide, and/or justofy forcing other people to pay for same.
    The problem is that the vast majority of Americans regardless of their political persuasion are not unconscionable sociopaths, so leaving the uninsured out to die in the street when they need life saving care is not an option for them.

    So, that leaves us with having to provide life saving care to those that do not have the ability to pay. Which brings me back to my original point, everyone has a vested financial interest in the uninsured having at the very least some sort of catastrophic only coverage.

    If you don't like that, possibly you and Charles Manson can found yourselves a nation where the uninsured die in the streets if they can't afford life saving care.

    So if an uninsured pregnant women shows up at the hospital, you are for denying her care?

    And if she did give birth to a baby with special needs, you're against any care for the infant as well?
    I notice that you didnt actually address the question that I said needed to be asked. How about you do that?

    But, to answer YOUR questions:

    If his answers to all three questions were "Yes," how would there be an inconsistency?

    Unless you have pre-existing conditions then health insurance is likely somewhere around $100 a month. You've got to be in some extreme poverty to not be able to afford that by cutting back on non-necessities

    You might want to source that, since it flies in the face of all the pricing of health care I have done.

    Good news -- these people DO have an option in that they can give to charity and/or take care of the uninsured themselves. They have every right to make that choice.

    And so, I don't see the problem "with that".

    I also dont see how asking the question I asked makes you an unconscionable sociopath. Did you have a specfic asnwer that actually addresses that question, or were you just going to toss out personal attacks?

    Looks pretty damn affordable to me. Unless you live in Massachusetts.

    Typical of the right-wing view:

    I did answer the question with reality. The REALITY is that people are unwilling due to reasons of conscience to deny life saving treatment to individuals that lack the ability to pay. That is not a liberal issue or a conservative issue, its just that virtually anyone with a conscience is unwilling to deny life saving treatment to someone just because they can't pay for it. Period, the end, that is just the way it is. Moreover, that is always been the way it is. 200 years ago, you get seriously injured and show up at a hospital and they would treat you even if they did not think you would ultimately be able to pay.
