    What a piece of propoganda.

    If you guys were right about this, or the economy, or the war, why are you approaching this problem the same way you approach every problem? Deny there is a problem for as long as you can, do nothing about it when you are in charge, Have prices go up 101% after you get into office, and then lie and scare people into thinking the liberal approach will cause the exact problems your own status quo is guilty of?

    Hightower Lowdown | The four Big Lies about universal health care

    This debunks all your bullshit.

    We want exactly what Senators get. SINGLE PAYER. Choices! No pre existing conditions! Inexpensive! Covers everyone!

    We decided a long time ago that education was important. We made it MANDATORY for every kid. This is more important.

    Yesterday this guy who sells insurance called the Ed Schultz show crying that this would put 15,000 agents out of work in Dallas alone, or something like that. HA! How's it feel bitches? You didn't mind sending manufacturing jobs overseas. You didn't mind putting truckers out of jobs. Now it is your turn. Go find another fucking job. Maybe you can work for the humain society euthenizing kittens.

    Dick Cheney, George Bush, John Boehner, your parents, my parents, and retired military vets are all on taxpayer funded public healthcare. And I haven't heard them complaining about it.


    why don't we ask them how they like it, rather than rely on the opinons of a rightwing blog author?

    Giving it away? Hey we will be paying taxes to pay for it. Nothing going to be given away. The difference is that there will not be a middle man (insurance companies) taking a cut for doing nothing. All the money will go to medical expenses instead of fat cat corporate CEOs.

    Why is it that right wingers love to get screwed by big buisness?

    Which means those that pay taxes will be providing it for everyone, whether they pay taxes or not...

    Sorry... but you are not OWED a damn thing for your personal care, health, and well being from anyone else on this fucking earth

    You're an adult... earn it and pay for it yourself

    The government does not exist to be your insurance company.. what next? Government single payer auto insurance?

    This is why left wingers just don't get it...

    Ah yes, the 'rugged individual' argument. Everybody in this country pays tax. The idea that some don't pay tax is a lie.

    I love how the righties are always saying that people who don't pay tax are getting a refund. This is a lie. It's true that some don't pay 'income tax' but those people do pay a tax on their income, it's just not called income tax. It's called FICA and it's paid by most people on the first dollar they make and they pay it on every dollar they make. Everyone pays sales tax. Everyone pays property tax, either directly or indirectly.

    The government exists to be what the people decide it should be. If we want to pool our resources to provide health insurance for everyone we can do that.

    This is why right wingers just don't get it.

    There you are being dishonest again... a large proportion of citizens do not in fact pay federal income tax and you well know it..
