How can People be against Government Subsidized Healthcare?
People seem sadly misinformed about Universal Healthcare Many use the European model, which is inefficient. In America, people would have to pay for their healthcare, but the government would help out, as they should. A good country has healthy citizens. If a man gets sick, and is unable to work, he shouldn't have to destroy his credit to pay medical bills! That is what I see the Democrats proposing. Some companies give health benefits. These are largely inadequate, only covering a few thousand dollars. The only jobs that give good healthcare are social servants, teachers, military retirees, and G-men. Matty, you are narrow-minded People b***h about the government until they need something from it.

In America, unfortunately most of the population seems to be denial with regard to their responsibilities, healthcare or lack thereof is just one of many. We have the highest cost healthcare system in the world, yet the majority of Americans either have inadequate care, or no care at all. We are 29th in Mortality, but... More

The way things are going in this country now, any redesign of the health care system will just be an opportunity for government and wall street insiders to loot the system. I picture the same people who ran Fannie Mae taking over.

It's a good idea if you are part of the "entitlement" crowd in our country. Why would you want that kind of government control in your life? They can then tell you how to take care of your own body. Move to a communist country if you need government that bad in your life. That is utterly PATHETIC. I don't need... More

Government health care actually increases the price of health care, by circulating more money into the industry. This makes it harder to pay for. Free or inexpensive health care was provided through charity by good doctors before the government began subsidising it... More

For those of you who question the government's ability to handle health care, do note that almost everyone on the VA system think its great and that is socialized medicine run by the government. Also note that the Medicare system for seniors is exaclty the same as Canada's single payer health care system except the US... More

If that's what you think, many of us know better, and if you want to pay more federal taxes for it, be my guest. I do not.

why do you want to give money to some one just so they can give it back only under the condition that you do the things they want for you to get it back plus they keep a little of it for their valuable decision making, plus a little more for overhead costs... More

because people with jobs have to subsidize the government before it can subsidize people without jobs

As far as being "misinformed" I would say that you're right there too. Point me towards one, just one government-run program that is run efficiently, or well. And you want to add health insurance to these "geniuses" as well? Good government = less government, not more.

So all of America should be forced under penalty of imprisonment to pay for yet another government program they neither want or need? Wow thats so very undemocratic of you. Why is it you freeloaders are so quick and willing to spend other peoples money to get something you can pay for out of your own pocket?
Answered By: roadhazzards - 7/26/2008
i don't think Matty is the narrow minded one, no people complain about the government over stepping its bounds, where exactly does the constitution give the government the right to be in the health care business?
