I don't think you agree with those any of those positions.
But, the "let the States decide" puts you in their company.
well i guess 34 is younger. however what if the government passed a law that would have prevented mixed marriages? of course i don't agree with slavery. in your cases yes, the govt made the right decesion, however i don't think people should be fined if they don't have health care. and the irs enforcing it? aren't they in our lives enough?

anything the govt does will always have haters. i remember when people thought is was a bad idea to get tax cuts.

If you choose to go uninsured and then get sick you cost me. When you speed you put my children's life in danger. Do you not believe in fines at all?

Are they really in your life? How did they hinderence your life today?

for over 30 years now, I have been self employed

if I don't pay Social Security payments on my income the IRS comes after me now.

Social Security is a retirement plan, is that more essential than Health Care?

i am paying into social security without the hope of getting so where does that leave me? plan for retirement through other means. if i had to choose between health care or SS, I would choose HC. I have always said that I shouldn't have to pay into SS if I don't want it.

I'm getting the feeling Swan, that you just don't like government at all and lean closer to anarchy? Am I right?

/QUOTE]

the irs came after me because they claimed i didn't report my state income tax return in 2007. I just had to send in the paper work to show that I had. Major inconveince that took a couple months to work out. Sure I believe in fines but why should I have to pay for something that I don't want? If I get sick without health care and then I try to get some through the feds after I get sick, they should grant it too you, then fine you when you didn't have it.

i am not a libertarian either, what you don't know about me is that I protested in washington dc the war in iraq after my wifes cousin dies so I really don't ride either side of the dumb political realm. I just don't like big govt programs due to ineffientcy and looming bankruptcy.

As for Federal Laws that discriminate, or exclude classes of people from equal protection? We should be moving away from that and become a more enlighten society.

Yet, some still yearn for the 'good ol days' when states could exclude some people, to the advantage of other people.

You don't want coverage because you're independently wealthy and can afford a major surgery if something happens to you today?

This doesn't make any sense.

And I've worked in public hospital administration for years and I can tell you it's not always much better. And the public insurance companies aren't efficient at all. I work in a hospital that is 60% covered. Last year we only had 38% of procedures reimbursed. And Medicare paid out much more than public insurance companies, so a lot of what they are telling you, lies.

thats why i don't like big government...its still run by people which by nature are flawed. of course we should move away from things that discriminate. but spending more money doesn't end that.

medicare still does though turn down people like my grandmother who has alheimzers but thank god some of her treatments were picked up by cigna. my stepdad was telling the truth though, he could have lied to me but whom to do you mean lied to me.
