    Republicans want everyone to have guns, but no one to have health care.

    Where is the link to the video of Santorum arguing with the Mother?

    Two opinion blogs don't make a left.

    Kinda fits into a culture that spends like the government and doesn't budget.
    How many people are considered poor and can't afford health care so they say
    yet have computers,laptops,smart phones,big screen TV's,cable TV,high speed internet.
    These are the folks that bitch that they don't have health care and want government assistance.
    This kid may not be one of them but you can't tell me the people that i just described DON'T exist.

    We have become a people who use credit cards like crazy and don't save for things...
    I know...I am one of them.

    We need to think about how we spend the money we have and not spend what we don't.
    Maybe if the people start doing it the government will follow....

    Well probably not.

    I cannot understand why anyone running for president would want to basically say to heck with your sick child. Working class people who are barely making ends meet simply cant afford to pay those prices. Its a rich person who cant relate to the working class kinda thing.
