Well, they forced it through. Whats done is done, so, rather than bashing it, lets be honest and soberingly truthful. Here is a few examples of who healthcare reform will help, by taking the money from others: - Remember in your suburban high school the guy that you hung around with that smoked weed all the time? And when you hit your senior year you all graduated. He stayed at home and kept going to high school parties while you went off to college and worked a part-time job to make ends meet? On summer breaks, you would see him still going out, drinking, working odd jobs, living with parents still. Then, you graduated. He was working part-time still, age 25. You worked your way up, through entry level jobs, until you landed a nice career, around age 27 or 28. Meanwhile, he finally moved out into an apt, works part-time still, has a couple simple possession arrests, can't find a job with benefits. And whines about how YOU should pay more in taxes to support his substance abuse therapy. - Remember in your ghetto high school when you hated the gangs and violence and drugs? And rather than get caught up in that, you stayed to yourself, played sports, and graduated. The guy who always said you were a "sell out" was selling petty amounts of dope and dropped out of high school. Eventually he decided to get his GED, or maybe he didn't. You graduated and they wanted you to run the streets with them, selling dope. You didn't. Instead, you listened to that Army recruiter and enlisted. Did your 4 years honorably. You heard that back home "that guy" was arrested a few times and got out. But he was actually making more $$$ from drug dealing than you were in the Army. Oh well, not your route in life. You went back home, and used your GI Bill to go to college. Landed a good job with benefits. "That guy" now is a convicted felon, can't find work. And he wants YOU to pay his healthcare for the therapy he needs from the bullet wound he has from a previous bad drug deal altercation. - Remember your old apartment neighbor? When things were good, he was 28, so were you. Both of you were healthy. You saved your money, paid for your own insurance, drove a used car, had an old but OK television, an old cell phone, and lived modestly. Then you got a nice job and did well. But while he was 28, he ran up huge debt on credit cards. He bought a house he couldn't afford, a car he didn't need, a boat he never used, etc, etc. Now, he's in debt, bad, and wants you to pay his healthcare costs. - Remember driving through the ghetto and seeing everyone who owned a new SUV? And a new flat-screen TV? And wearing very expensive Ed Hardy, FUBU, Roca Wear clothing? Expensive jewelry? Remember seeing that? While living in housing that you are subsidizing? Now, you must also pay their healthcare costs. - Remember that former coworker of yours? Yeah, you do. He was always late to work. Some mornings he smelled of alcohol. Got caught sleeping on the job a few times. Got fired. Now has liver disease and can't find a job. Yeah.....he needs some of your money. - Remember that woman you knew that always has a Snickers, Twinky or ice cream bar in her hand? She laughed at people who worked out all the time and ate healthy saying they were "crazy" and that they needed to "live a little". Many of us told her she needed to watch her weight, but she said "I'm happy with my body" and stuffed another fried chicken leg into her mouth. When asked if she wanted to go to the gym with you, she said "No, exercise is boring I hate it" and she got fatter. Then, she changed jobs, and the new insurance she tried to get said "NO, you are too fat, have high cholesterol, diabetes and are way to expensive". Now, after all that, she wants the same people that warned her and tried to help her to pay for her mistakes. Fair, right? I could go on and on, but this issue is about ENVY for other peoples things. People who COULD afford health insurance decided instead to buy new clothes, new cars, new homes, drugs, XBoxes, whatever. They are pissed because they see people who worked hard and earned a job or money that could provide BOTH healthcare and luxury items, and they could not. So, they decided to buy the luxury items instead, and then bitch about wanting YOU to also pay for their health costs. They decided to eat crap, never exercise and now demand others pay for their costs. Just reality guys. This is what liberals are all about. Everyone takes a certain path in life from age 16 to about age 30 when our long-term destiny is cemented. But after that destiny is realized, the liberals want to make everyone equal again.....regardless of the good or bad decisions they made during those crucial years of laying life's foundation.
