    I'm not conflicted. I want to get what I pay for, and I want others to pay for what they get/want. I don't want to pay for someone to get free healthcare. Simple enough?

    This current socialized system we have has to really upset you then.

    I'm entirely willing to "get what I can afford" but question the stomach of Americans for hospitals turning away the sick. Now this isn't just the poor homeless sick getting turned away. This is the Middle Class who need chemo but are between jobs. U willing to see them middle class folks dying on the streets or in homeless shelters?

    isn't that the gop mantra? 100million retirement bonuses to CEOs of ins companies that cut off clients and deny them treatment after years of paying premiums? those people dying are just fulfilling capitalism in their broken minds.

    Wow, my family pays a 15% tax rate and so do NFL stars earning a million a year? This isn't right is it?

    No, it is not that simple.

    We don't let people bleed to death on the street here.

    Not yet anyway.

    Modern day conservatism is the political codification of selfishness.
