    The problem with health insurance now, is it does not make a difference if you caused your own illness/injury or if it was no fault of their own.

     

    Like I said if you want to tax people who are living a life style that is effecting their health  Iwould have no problem with that. But I still think we need universal health care.

        That was a bad joke especially at a time when people are really

         pressed for money. I dont blame those people, if I was near that

        store, I'd have jumped at the oppotunity. Better safe than sorry.

          WOW.  You took a patriotic post and twisted it into something racist.  WTF is wrong with people today? Bang Head

          Thanks BuyLow, but it's so typical of the response from the far left. Anytime you disagree with them, you're attacked and labeled as a racist or a redneck or any of a litany of other pejoratives. They're never wrong.

          Some people just want to live in a nanny state where they feel secure feeding from the public trough under the watchful eye of Big Brother. They don't care who has to keep the trough full as long as it's not them. Just make sure the trough is full and they're happy.

          They don't care how hard you worked for what's yours; they demand a piece of it and they will vote for people who vow to confiscate it from you. For some reason they feel entitled to your money if you have more than them. They call it "being fair."

          They fancy that it's the "government" taking care of them and they don't care that the government doesn't have any money. They rely on the government to take money away from productive members of society and give it to them - the slackers.

          It doesn't bother them a bit to see this country being destroyed as long as somebody else pays their way.

          Slackers.

            Well, one of the things that's wrong with some of them is that they can't undertand what they read, even when it's extremely simple. Somebody pointed out that when it was first enacted the constitution didn't treat all people as if they were equal to other people. Anyone who thinks that pointing that out is racist clearly has a serious problem in undertanding what they read.

              You said the Constution should not be changed. He simply pointed out that the Constution use to say that black people were only 3/5 of a white person. The point he was trying to make is the Constution has to change to fit the time.

                Memory and math,  something missing on this thread.   For all you race baiters groveling around, learn math and remember our president is half black and half white.  So that means he was never 3/5 of anything since he was 5/5 American theoretically when he was born in Hawaii.. 

                Or.............. he could be 5/5 Kenyan and not be a president at all.

                Or if the race baiter in you, is still in you,  3/5 X 1/2 = 3/10   3/10+ 1/2 = 8/10 white or 4/5ths white  according to the old 3/5ths rule of whiteness.

                Do you see how race baiting math works and remembering he isn't "ALL" black?

                    I never mentioned ANYTHING about race. But that's what the topic always shifts too when you disagree with liberals these days. You can't critique the president without being called a racist.

                    NATURALLY slavery was wrong and calling any human being 3/5ths of a person is wrong (It was the North that wanted to count them as less than human, by the way).

                    It is NATURALLY and rightfully so that that inclusion necessitated changing the Constitution.

                    My point is that contrary to the beliefs of libs, the Constitution is NOT a living document. It was not meant to be altered at the whims and fancies of each generation. If that is to be the case, then why even have a Constitution? Just throw it out and have chaos. Let every little group of ne'erdowells, miscreants and malcontents demand that somebody else pay their bills. The problem with that concept is that eventually you run out of other people's money in numbers necessary to keep all the slackers happy.

                    I am sorry to inform you that there is no provision in the Constitution for other people to pay your bills. It is unconstitutional for the government to demand that we pay your bills, medical or otherwise, and it is an outrage that they intend to illegally confiscate our money to do so.

                    The latest poll shows that only 34% of people (the slackers) support this government takeover of healthcare; 53% oppose it and the rest don't know what day it is half the time. Regardless of the will of the people, the democrats (socialists) are determined to shove it down our throats.

                    Thomas Jefferson warned us about tyrants gaining control like this. He said that when it happens that the people should take up arms and throw them out. In fact, he said that it may have to be done every twenty years or so. He knew and understood the absolute corruptibility of power.

                    Thomas Jefferson was a wise man.

                      Sorry, but in America that kind of thing doesn't happen.  Emergency rooms are required by law to treat anyone who doesn't have health insurance.

                      You see, in this country we already have a great health care system in which nobody "dies" (your words) for lack of health insurance.

                      In other countries with government-run healthcare, like Canada and England, people DO DIE because they either have to wait so long for their procedures, or else the government says they won't get a life-saving drug because they are too old and "not worth it".

                      People who actually take 5 minutes to learn about the system from someone other than a shill for the Democrat party knows what I'm saying is true.

                      Sorry, people lose out everyday in not getting the full amount of healthcare that they may need or require because they cannot afford it.

                      The U.S. has better resources and 10 fold more Drs and specialist than those other countries that you mention. You're comparing apples to oranges.

                      I've seen people get delayed healthcare services because they carry one of the more popular HMO's...come into an emergency room in a hospital that isn't on that HMO's approval list. Have to wait for approval from that HMO to have services in that hospital or get transferred out to one of their approved facilities.

                      This is not something that may happen in the future or in some other country... it happens here, in the USA!!

                      I wish all of you who think you know all of the details about the healthcare system could actually work in the system and see all that goes on, then maybe you could make some intelligent comments about it.

                      If you can't pay for services in some States, you get transferred to what is called a charity hospital. Heck, I've seen patients brought in from one speciality hospital and I know that it's a dump because the patient's Medicare short-term benefits have run out. Suddenly, the facility finds all kinds of reasons not to take the person back and now that chronically ill person is sitting in an Acute care facility waiting for a less desirable nursing home bed to open up.

                      AND what does this have to do with the lottery???

                      Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

                      Come on Jackpot!!!

                        The point is the Constitiuion can and has change to give the citizens of the United States rights that they did not have before. We are trying to say that health care should be a right now.

                          Am I slow? Whoa.

                          Listen real close now junior, you just might learn something.

                          You have a right to free speech under the First Amendment - But I don't have to buy your soapbox!

                          You have a right to bear arms under the Second Amendment - But I don't have to buy your guns!

                          You already have a right to get any kind of medical care you want - But I don't have to pay for it!

                          Show me where in the Constitution it says that I have to pay for anything that you have rights to!

                          You want to amend the Constitution because you want a handout? Get a job and support yourself!

                          We don't need to amend the Constitution to give you a "right" to healthcare. You already have that right.

                          You just want somebody else to pay your way. Well, the American people don't want to pay your way.

                          If you want somebody else to pay for everything for you I suggest you find a country that does that.

                          The majority of the American people like the healthcare system we have and we don't want to cater to

                          every slacker that comes along thinking he's entitled to everybody else's money for some insane reason.

                           

                          Nobody owes you anything. You don't have a "right" to other people's money. Get over it.

                          And get used to the fact that your hero will be a one-termer. People are waking up to the horrendous mistake they made.

                              I never mentioned ANYTHING about race. But that's what the topic always shifts too when you disagree with liberals these days. You can't critique the president without being called a racist.

                              NATURALLY slavery was wrong and calling any human being 3/5ths of a person is wrong (It was the North that wanted to count them as less than human, by the way).

                              It is NATURALLY and rightfully so that that inclusion necessitated changing the Constitution.

                              My point is that contrary to the beliefs of libs, the Constitution is NOT a living document. It was not meant to be altered at the whims and fancies of each generation. If that is to be the case, then why even have a Constitution? Just throw it out and have chaos. Let every little group of ne'erdowells, miscreants and malcontents demand that somebody else pay their bills. The problem with that concept is that eventually you run out of other people's money in numbers necessary to keep all the slackers happy.

                              I am sorry to inform you that there is no provision in the Constitution for other people to pay your bills. It is unconstitutional for the government to demand that we pay your bills, medical or otherwise, and it is an outrage that they intend to illegally confiscate our money to do so.

                              The latest poll shows that only 34% of people (the slackers) support this government takeover of healthcare; 53% oppose it and the rest don't know what day it is half the time. Regardless of the will of the people, the democrats (socialists) are determined to shove it down our throats.

                              Thomas Jefferson warned us about tyrants gaining control like this. He said that when it happens that the people should take up arms and throw them out. In fact, he said that it may have to be done every twenty years or so. He knew and understood the absolute corruptibility of power.

                              Thomas Jefferson was a wise man.

                              "I am sorry to inform you that there is no provision in the Constitutionfor other people to pay your bills. It is unconstitutional for thegovernment to demand that we pay your bills, medical or otherwise, andit is an outrage that they intend to illegally confiscate our money todo so."

                              You're confused. For the most part, people aren't asking the government to make anyone else pay their bills. They're asking the government to provide a(nother) service. Not only is there absolutely nothing unconstitutional about that, providing services to the people is pretty much the only reason to have a government.
