Questions I have for you
1-do you believe that giving more to a lazy person is going to motivate them to do more for themselves?
2-do you believe that parents pass attitude traits whether good or bad onto their children?
3-in a socialist system which class disappears; upper, middle or low?
4-financially, do you think this is a smart time for us to spend more or buckle down and get our country into a better financial situation?
5-do you believe in the tooth fairy?
OK got it. We keep the current system where the ER has to treat anyone who shows up with an emergency, regardless of their ability to pay, and the costs for those that can't pay gets passed on to the rest of us in by way of higher fees.
1. No. But I know that not everyone that happens to work someplace that does not offer health insurance, or that is self employed is lazy. Making it easier for these people to get health care sounds like a good thing to me. Personally I would have preferred it be though low cost no frills clinics, but I'm will to give the health insurance exchanges with subsidies a try.
2. Yes. What are you suggesting we do about it? Let kids die because their parents are lazy?
3. I suppose the answer you're looking for is "middle", but I also know that much of the middle class got there because unions helped elevate many people up to the middle. I think the middle class would shrink under a purely capitalist system.
4. No, it's probably not the best time to be spending more. But with medical cost rising and fewer people having employer provided insurance, I'm not sure how long we can wait.
5. Yes, always worked for me. Every time I put a tooth under my pillow I got money for it. But I'm starting to have my doubts about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. Neither of them has given me anything in years.
