Conservatives have taken what should be a pragmatic debate about health care, and once again, tried to turn it into an inapplicable anti-socialism drama fest. You talk about "Hope and Change" being fueled by personal greed, forgetting that thousands of people die every year because the "personal greed" of insurance company boards is more important to them than covering treatment. When we're talking about services that our lives depend on, I like the idea of being able to vote on an issue or aspect related to it.
Administering the Hiway Dept. and the FDA didn't include
SOAKING the RICH in a jealous rage to pay MORE in taxes.
This PHONEY Class War is just a jealousy-based tax scam!
It also doesn't FORCE others to pay road taxes if they don't
own a car. Or threaten prison due to noncompliance of
NOT having HC insurance. Or be victim to ILLEGAL pricing
schemes Pelosi will employ to undercut the Insurance premiums
and making up the difference by taking money out of the
General fund. If a business did that to their competition,
The Corp Officers would go to jail. IT IS ILLEGAL! Pelosi &
Frank should both be in jail for what they have done!
The only HALF argument you have is crying about your
poor dying in the gutters. Trouble is, Anybody can walk
into an ER and be treated. They CAN'T be THROWN OUT,
YOU have ignored on multiple instances now the key point
that MEDICARE is the WORST abuser of denying medical
treatment. Worse than those horrible Insurance cos.
Imagine these same people running Health Care. Think if
you Ignore it and it will go away?
DEMANDING this Poison Pill legislation is right up there
next to assisted suicide. Only people that can't get
a grip on their own lives and take care of personal
business would think it is a workable idea.
