Are you trolling/being sarcastic here?

Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean they're trolling.

Thanks for reminding me to schedule my cancer until after I win the lottery.

Not all diseases are caused by lifestyle choices, you know.

Not to mention injuries.

So how would you propose someone born with a weak immune system should prevent any illnesses?

And that's just one example that falls outside your limits. There are millions more.

Please tell me that first comment was sarcasm, even if it was tinged with some truth.

That's unfortunate. Hopefully they can get a job that provides health insurance.

I do understand, somewhat where you are coming from, I fall more into the category of someone that pays for a lot more government services than I use.

There are those that are irresponsible with their choices and expect to have services provided to them at no or little costs.

My brother has Type-1 Diabetes. I guess "fuck you" is the position of the right on his illness?

There's nothing in the constitution that says we have to be taxed to pay for people that make poor choices. No insurance? Go to your church, they'll help you!

I agree with you. They're hitting me with 20 different taxes in my pay check. I'm paying for people to sit on welfare, stupid infrastructure projects.. I don't drive on every highway and I'm already paying to constantly repair them. Enough is enough with these 'hidden' taxes the Obama administration is hitting us with.

That person, you and your family should be the primary parties that are responsible for covering his expenses.

Exactly! Healthcare is a personal choice. If you have no insurance your family should step in and take care of you. Why should you burden society? If your family is poor? Oh well maybe they should have made better career choices!

that is a valid point gasoline taxes pay for most highways, so we all pay and use

I pay for public education, I have no children, but don't mind it is for the common good. I don't want to pay for everybodies higher education, and beer pong, vape leaning experiences.
