Obama care is giving health care to the people that are completely able bodied with the ability to work but are too busy leeching off the rest of us in every way that they can. If someone is too lazy to help themselves why should the rest of us have to suffer with worse health care to help them out? I don't give a shit about a crack dealer with a cold and a hangnail.

I'm with Bruce on this one. Seriously.

He plays Devils advocate on purpose to get people to think. I hope people have made the connection that not everybody can just work thier way into a better place. Thier jobs restrict thier upward movement. Chances are, if they are in that postion, they aren't able to just look for another job either.

Is the answer obamacare? Hell no. But the 'american' idea that you just have to work harder is not true due to companies screwing over thier employees.
