Exactly. Forget the poor here who can't afford their medical care. They should move to Canada or some other socialist country. We don't have time or money for them. My money is my money. I earned it. No one gave it to me, so no one should take it away to pay for some loser's operation.

That's what the socialists want to you believe. All the poor are on meth anyway, so I'm sure paying for the meth is in the health care bill. You know it is if the socialist Democrats wrote the damn thing.

If our life expectancy is basically the same, what exactly are the poor missing out on here? You socialist types should be out changing someones life right now instead of bitching about it online. Won't find you in the ghettos though.

Exactly!! Quality of life is just one of those buzzwords the socialists use to steal your money from you. And then they dig up faulty numbers to make it seem like they have a case.

I say KEEP OUR MONEY. If the poor want surgeries and cancer treatments and they haven't saved up for them or, more likely, they've spent all their money on meth, how is that my fault?

See if you understood numbers you would realize that if more got healthcare, they would live longer and we can beat that life expectancy statistic...

You want to win don't you?

No I don't really care, I think 78 is plenty. How can you really hope to beat that? But this could all start a euthanasia discussion.

The fact that America has more births to teenagers, more to obese mothers or those that smoke or are addicted to drugs is more a reflection of the differences in lifestyle than that of healthcare systems.

"Better health" is not the same as receive better healthcare treatment.

The question is, which system would you rather have access to if you needed treatment?

Relax!? How can you be so blase about this?


I work really hard and I can't believe that some asshole who makes less than I do because he doesn't work as hard is somehow going to steal my money to pay for his chemo or antibiotics or whatever else he needs but didn't plan ahead for. He didn't start an HSA, so why the fuck should I pay for it?

Really? You don't think healthcare and education are linked?

I think you are sadly mistaken.
