    But you are getting into very dangerous ground that communists often use. Communism didn't work because the USSR wasn't "real" communism. Stalin wasn't a nice guy. If I ran it, I would do a lot better. Well frankly that's bull****. Things don't work the way you would like them to in your fantasy land.
    Letting black people into the same schools as white people was pretty unpopular too. Sometimes the people are wrong.

    You're making my point for me. Politically guided decisions aren't always the best. Which is why politics shouldn't interfere with health insurance.

    So, then treat the problem, not the fantasy.

    Well, for Democrats and socialist the thinking and feeling happens in their gonads. Normal people learn to use their heads.

    Yeah, I probably do.

    I know that encouraging fantasy isn't how one adjusts to reality.

    Yes, I agree that welfare shouldn't be paying for it.

    That's different from an insurance policy paying for it. If government workers for instance get a benefit where their insurance policy covers it, I don't see that as "government" paying for it.
