    Sorry Matt, nobody is forcing you to join a group, but we are all forced into Obamacare.

    Ka-ZING!!
    Truthfully, they should be in favor of it. It could ultimately reduces costs to businesses — unless your intent is to have poor, unhealthy peons.

    Nope, wrong.

    I think they want poor, unhealthy peons.

    “we are all forced into Obamacare…” unless you already have insurance, in which case you aren’t forced into Obamacare. It’s the law, you should learn how it works before repeating malicious misinformation. And the government IS forcing us to subsidize groups like “Americans for Prosperity,” who are the con-men spreading the lies that you, apparently, are listening to.

    Why should ANY political organization get favorable tax treatment?
    -
    Why should bribes campaign contributions be tax deductible?

    The ARWB does not want the American health care system to be improved.

    You know, MY health care is just fine. Sorry (not really) if yours isn’t.

    “So they provide you with health-care if you can’t afford it. If you can they charge you. What’s wrong with that?”

    Not a thing.

    Except the devil is in the details, and the interpretation. What they have always done here in the past, and are doing with this is ‘qualifying’ people for care, if they fall below a certain income level.

    The catch is that the government thinks people can live on about 25% of what it actually costs to live.

    So the answer to people who ‘fall through the cracks’ of the qualification procedure – that is, those who are sick or impaired but who don’t qualify for ‘help’ will just have to manage or die.

    In other words, it’s not an honest system. They will shut as many people out as they possibly can, while exempting the well off from participating. The American public will really not be satisfied until the government is getting the same deal they are – one way or another. It’s hard to see where the resistance to an all-inclusive plan comes from; those who oppose it are, on the whole, those who can afford to buy any kind of health care that appeals to them. The point in a national health care system – however it is paid for – is to cover all, and particularly those who are not well enough off to pay for care out of pocket.

    You are right to express contempt for those who accept that our military veterans should be homeless, or that they should have to fight for healthcare. It is utterly contemptible for a government to operate this way.

    I don’t know that it is such a strange country, really. It’s not as if it’s the first time a country has been hijacked by the industrialists and well off at the expense of the public. It’s just that it really does seem that by now we ought to know better.

    Evidently we don’t.

    If you were saying DEM instead of GOP, you could be in 2005, except that there wasn’t much of your sort of superior tripe to be had from the vast rightwing conspiracy at the time. But now that the hob-nail boot is on the foot on the other neck of the woods, burning down the forest seems like a good idea, I suppose. We will destroy ourselves, one way or another, it seems.

    No, substituting in DEM for GOP would make no sense at all, I think someone took the straw you are grasping at and made a straw man in another post.
    .
    There are a number of thoughtful posts, repeats, but still they make sense at least.

    You’d think that the supposedly patriotic Republicans/Fox “news” viewers would want a healthy American population.

    Evidently, they don’t.

    Feudalism was SUCH and egalitarian system, that’s why conservatives are trying to bring it back!

    There are and have been many forms of “family” in various cultures. Our word “family” derives from the Latin “familia”, but a Roman family was much larger than our families are, with many more relatives included. It’s pretty common for people to think that whatever their own culture does is what is “natural” for everywhere to do; it’s important to learn that there are and have been many other ways to be human and to build a society. I’m not saying that no one should judge other cultures, but knowledge should come before judgment.

    I am a prime example of being only whatever you choose to see me as being. You can find a more useful plan of action in reading the Tao Te Ching. Perhaps there are instances of government being beneficial and good when it has great power, but such power is historically misused and abuse in the long run, which isn’t all that long. You are a prime example of people who have only guns and knives and are looking for a way to make a better world with only those tools, crying that “We must do SOMETHING!” I would ask, though, haven’t you done enough? When will the harm be great enough that we realize we should stop, that our exercise of power is harmful, even when our intentions are most noble, and our morality follows the highest authority?
