    But what if you paid all those tax dollars in, and didnt use them, wouldn't that be a waste of money? Also the rich get richer because they dont spend every fucking dime on shit they dont need, or afford, most poverty stricken people dont even want to get a job, just suck off welfare and pan handle on the street corners. I used to be a minimum wage puke, but got skills that enabled me to barter for higher paying wages. Idiots have no intelligence so take what they can get.

    I remember back in the day when hospitals only need a 100 bucks or so. But with all that FREE stuff to illegals who cant be turned away from the emergency room, then someone who speaks English has to pick up the tab.

    Average American worker here, and doing quite well in life if I might say so myself. Once the medical bills begin, no one will be able to actually afford it, not even the upper class workforces. Funny how with all the open channels that help people find the solutions to these upheavals, and the government programs that kick in once all other avenues have been exhausted, somehow we see these things getting lost in these political discussions where the issues are being manipulated more for votes than actually solving them.

    Sounds like the Demon-crats want to make doctors and nurses slaves before it's over with. They are already farming much of the care out to foriegn born physicians and other's coming here to work for less.

    My life. I’d rather money not get in the way of my cure. Or anyone else’s.

    I thought life was precious? Apparently not as precious as the all mighty dollar

    Right. Even people with $5 million dollars sav3d don’t want to pay $10,000 a month to take care of a love one with Alzheimer’s for example

    Don't have to, as there are many ways to deal with these things already in America.

    Done seen it many times over. There is always a way provided, but it has to be uncovered. Might not get to live carefree anymore, but ones health is more important than money. No one should be bankrupted by medical conditions, and that one needs to be worked on most of all.
