What do you propose to do with people who don't have insurance but use ER's, hospitals etc. and can't afford it, thereby sticking the cost to others? Just wondering because that is a problem and I know of someone who has racked up over 1/4 million in hospital bills but can't pay and is going into bankruptcy.
So, since the government already intrudes too much into the lives of its citizens, then we should just allow them to intrude even more?
I'm sorry if I don't understand the logic there.
I do agree that it is a problem for people who don't pay taxes to leech off of taxpayers whenever they get sick or injured; but the solution is not to put us all under the thumb of the federal government. We first need to get rid of this false notion that every American is somehow entitled
to healthcare. There is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that even implies that. Just like the lie that every American deserves
to own their own home or has the right
to a college education. These are not basic human rights guaranteed by the Constitution, thus the government shouldn't be handing them out like candy and we, as free citizens, shouldn't be demanding these things from the government.
