You want to write a philosophical paper about it, go ahead, but it is a terrible debate question.
i don't know about that anitram..........

some thots ............
Among the Calvinists (and at least one other Protestant Denomination and neo con views.........IF you are wealthy then you are a worthy person.

Poverty = unworthiness

Thus health care is more of a Privilege of those who are Worthy.......
....and therefore....

.... there is no obligation = responsibility to try to give Health CAre to those who don't have [the Unworthy] it because various reasons.....poverty, loss of job and maybe no able to use the COBRA (system) /or a pre-existing condition keeping a person from getting insurance.


Where in society that supported individualism, AND a Community POV it would be considered a responsibilty to have people covered.

And in the long run......that coverage drawing from a big pool of people who bring costs down ie like peole getting more preventitive care in the first place, people using the ER less as their "Primary Care" facility...etc

Dazzledbylight, do you know how to use the new multi-quote feature? It allows you to quote multiple people in one post, rather than making a new post for each comment.

and the idea I believe behind helping to shore up the housing mortgage situation is b/c people WITH houses are more able to stay at their jobs = money = more buying power, and more cash (for now) to circumvent the credit Freeze that IS affecting people more & more.

If you were betting on how many times McCain said "my friends" last night . . . well if you picked 22, you won the pool, according to Hardball with Chris Matthews.

Oh, and there's a new t-shirt.
