Then why do we worry about the uninsured......
I said, no effort to cover EVERYONE.
Obamacare never ever claimed to try to cover everyone.
It was openly acknowledged that it would not.
Who would not be covered?
Are you saying you thought everyone would be covered ?
Eventually. How many people need drug war coverage.
There was no eventually with Obamacare.
Hence, there was no effort to cover everyone.
Hence, the federal government wasn't acting like Health Care was a right or covered as you claim.
Hence, you are incorrect in your assertions.
Hence, you deflect with a comment about drug war protection.
Why any mandate, if the effect was not to try to insure, everyone, eventually?
You continually shoot yourself in the foot.
How is the mandate supposed to "provide" health insurance for everyone ? The answer is that it didn't. It was a weak attempt to force people to buy it....which they haven't.
They are not attempting to insure everyone. They are attempting to coerce everyone into private plans.
If General Welfare means providing General Welfare for everyone, the the federal government would simply step up, nationalize the health care system and take it over making it available to everyone.
They are not trying.
Hence, there is no General Welfare being provided here.
Additionally, they are pushing people onto plans they can't afford.
That is General Welfare.
While I am not happy with the current state of things, to call this kind of system any better than the one we had before....seems silly.
I am going to start another thread which I hope you will participate in and not simply slather with one line unsupported claims.
