What should we do about the millions of Americans who don't have acess to health care?
Should the govt. pay for their insurance? If the insurance companies won't provide them coverage for a preexisting condition, or if it's too expensive, then they are screwed. If universal health care is not the solution, what is?

The solution is: better education. Think about it. I already provide you with a "free" education K-12. It produces two basic products, those going on to higher education, higher wages and a higher standard of living and those who are going into the work force as unskilled, untrained labor who can hope to get a union...

Let them die. Its the only natural thing to do. Sorry, but health care is a service.... An expensive service. They could have saved, exercised, and ate better. BUT, they chose not to.

They have access to health care. For urgent care they can go to the local county hospital and be treated. If you're illegal, there is no charge.

Why all of a sudden, does everyone expect free health care or health insurance? Health care is not a constitutionally guaranteed right. Lot's of people have brand new cars.

They have access to health care they just don't want to pay for it and if you are on welfare it's free anyway.

They have access. They just don't want to have to pay for what they use.
Answered By: Proud Libertarian - 7/1/2009
It is interesting that some of the people here say they already have health care because they can go to the emergency room. This is interesting because everyone else pays the cost of them going to the emergency room. Therefore anyone who makes that argument is cheering having to pay more for their own health care.

President Obama is trying to make health care available to everyone. How is that a bad idea? People are dying with no access to heath care.

Our President is working on that very problem. If we can get some repugnants on board, those people might have a chance. Medicare is not free and neither is medicade, for you conservatives who don't know.

We should have the federal government send millions of dollar every year to the hospitalS to pay for treating the uninsured. Then we can have the health care industry pass on the cost of treating the uninsured to the insured. OOPS! MY BAD. THAT IS WHAT WE ARE DOING NOW!

It's funny how you say should the government pay for the insurance, which really means the taxpayers, who are already paying in some part for their own health care, so now you want us to pay for health care for others! Sorry, I don't agree, I'm being taxed to death now!

One of the biggest problems with the proposed national health care program is that there are not enough Doctors available now for new patients.
