Are you OK with seeing dying people on the sidewalk in front of a hospital?
If they abuse the system they should have thought ahead. The healthcare system always covers life or death. We both know that. I am not OK with it being expanded. I am not OK with paying for health care for people who do not have jobs and spend their money on cigs and booze and drugs instead of their own well being. Let them learn. Break the cycle. Set strict limits and stick to those limits. Be an asshole, I don't care. That the only way to change people from being dependant. If you keep giving them more and more, there is no motivation for them to change.
So I am serious, I am going to have some medical bills coming up in December. When can I get my check?
