    There is only one possible answer. If rich people get tax breaks and the middle class doesn't, rich people get richer and poor people get poorer every hour of every day.

    Well.. actually that's not true since we have a progressive tax system.. and we run deficits.. so the tax system has little to do with the rich getting rich and the poor getting poorer.

    But anyway your reply is irrelevant. What my point was..that in all the systems that other countries do... you know the ones that liberals say we should emulate? They pay for their healthcare single payer..with making the poor and the middle class pay more in taxes.

    Doesn't it seem to be a bit of an intellectual disconnect.. for liberals to say "look what other countries do".. and want to emulate that other countries system to get this healthcare savings... but then in the next breath... NOT want to emulate that very system when its pointed out the downsides to that system for the poor and middle class?"..

    If other countries make the poor poorer, they are not liberal. They are socialist. That is not democracy, but a totally different government and different political party. Republicans call Democrats socilaists because they don't know this and think liberals want the most government control possible without being communist, which is obviously not true.

    I hate it when people say, "Look at what other countries do." They don't have a separation of powers with Congress, a President, and a Supreme Court. Some of them are royal. None of them have the same Constitutional laws.
