The sick and elderly already have government programs to help them out. The 35 million people referenced are ones making choices in their lives to not get health insurance. If they do not see their health as a priority, why should the tax payers?
80% of poverty households have cell phones
96% have TV's
83% have a DVR for tv
83% have air conditioning
They put the above items above their health. That's their choice. Their lack of planning or giving a shit about health care is not my problem.
