Im curious to see the responses.
hmmmm Government programs that will keep people from dying?
Do patents on medications and copyrights on First Aid Manuals count?
Of course not.
canada gov. negotiates drug prices with large drug companies.....us gov does not.....something like that would make drugs cheaper for people....esp orphan drugs....
Do you consider the law that requires emergency rooms to see patients as a government program? In essense that is what it is which is an unfunded mandate. Horribly inefficient but a government mandate none the less.
If so then the answer is clearly yes.... and no charity can't cover their expenses this isn't the 50's anymore despite what Ron Paul would want you to believe. (and generally I like Ron Paul)
Of course not who needs FEMA, FDA, etc.
they chose to live in a hurricane, flood, fire prone area let them live with the results of their choices.
And as far as testing unsafe food, I thought that was why we had children?
They will not replace self-care and healthy choices as a priority for the individual.
If human life expectancy in this country gets any longer then it is now.... we are in deep shit.
Govt programs by their very nature have to ration in order to remain effective. To deny that is to admit you have no common sense.
Separate names with a comma.
