So it's fair for me to work 80 hour weeks for my entire working career so my children don't have to bear any financial burden then have the government come in and say "hai we want you to pay for all the poor people too..."
Pay for all the poor people too? No, it is about human decency. What if you worked 80 hours a week and had nothing? Would you be happy about fatcats getting obscene amounts of money that got a free pass through life and don't give back? I am in the upper class, and fine with helping the less fortunate in this country.
I understand some good hard working people get screwed, but a lot of impoverished people are just taking advantage of the system. Again. It's
yea. Giving employers a reason to give their employees health insurance and creating more jobs really fucks everyone.
A lot of hard-working people get screwed.
Look at the CEO of GSI commerce. Has more money than any of us ever will. He started his first successful business at 17, become a millionaire by 20 something, then started one of the largest E-commerce companies in the world. He works practically 24/7. Is it fair to go up to him and say, "hey, we're taking some of your money to pay for people who don't want to work" or "We want you to give everyone in your company a raise, and in return we are going to continue giving you sub-standard workers from our failing education system." Not a fucking chance.
So because our education system is sub-standard, that doesn't give people the right to affordable medical attention? You are saying that all people that can't afford Healthcare "don't want to work". That glosses over a huge portion of the uninsured, those who work and can't afford it.
And what about the middle class? If you think the middle class won't see a tax increase from public health care you are retarded. Suddenly my family, who makes enough money to get by, will have to start sacrificing the things we work for? Heaven forbid that middle class family have more than 3 kids they have to put through college. They'll have less money when all debts and credits are counted than someone not working, living on the street, with 0 dollars in their pocket. WHERE DOES THAT GET FAIR.
Most of the taxing proposed was on the upper class, of which I am in according to the tax bracket. As government spending goes down in other areas AS ALREADY BEING DONE, money would be allocated to healthcare.
Keep preaching about fair. There is nothing fair about this to 4/6ths of the population so that the uninsured 1/6th can take advantage of us again.
Public health care is 100% the definition of the minority taking advantage of the majority, which is flat out unconstitutional.
So what about those roads that I pay for and never use? Or how about Senate getting healthcare FROM MY MONEY?! Or how about those members of the Armed Forces getting housing benefits, medical insurance, college money, etc with MY MONEY?! Man, fuck those minorities taking advantage of those taxpayer's money.
Republicans are a lot better than economics than democrats. And no I never said that. I said they were too busy arguing with democrats to actually focus on solving an actual problem.
Oh clearly, Bush was an economic mastermind.
hopefully they will have the decency to give some back
i don't think that, and I dislike republicans as much as democrats
