    We’d like two tickets to reality based earthcare.

    It’s one thing to stand on the sidelines and LET something fail. That is bad enough and is sin by Omission. Its something else again to work hard to MAKE the law fail, sometimes with out and out misdirection and falsehoods. Can’t we work together seems to be a tired and unworkable stance, but is still the only way forward.

    Lets take your analogy a little further. In insurance well people pay for insurance they don’t use in a pool where it pays for sick people. For most of us healthy people, if we saved and allocated our money wisely, we would seldom need help when we were sick. Insurance is all about spreading risk around and always has been. Rich, poor, young, old are mixed together to come to some equitable average cost that benefits everyone. catastrophic cost for healthcare makes it pretty much necessary for all to have insurance. That even covers those prudent young people who get hurt or sick when they least expect it. No one EVER wants to pay in advance for health care

    me too. I was scratching my head because I’ve heard stranger things said by people with a straight face and believing heart.

    Now split it into two overlays, one for delays and tech problems, and one for obstruction, votes on abolishment, negative promos, political bickering, and downright lies.

    So by your logic, rich people make their children pay their own way through school and college, don’t set them up in a business, and don’t bail them out of trouble. and rich people should pay the same percentage of taxes without loopholes that I pay as a lower middle class person?

    Here, Here! Governance is not a one trick pony. many factors and nuance come into play. Well stated, (and I bet you missed a few more mitigations)

    define almost all jobs

    If people should be self reliant and not need help, why should I help others out of my abundance. I propose ALL people need help (even the 1 percent) and there are a bounty of sources for help, any of which can foster self reliance or, on the down side, dependence on other entities. A larger coop, such as government is just one way of caring for the population. Church, individual, and corporate giving are others. Insisting on living wages and consistent levels of quality of life gets into some other creative ways that compel the whole population to be involved in the solution.

    … and there were plenty of presidents who played much more golf than Pres. Obama too. (aside) many presidents do a lot of work related schmoozing on vacation time as well as being kept abreast on current situations.
