Sure if you call over seaing over 320 million Americans healthcare 'small'.
I don't want even to begin think how many millions would be require to be hired or the trillions it would cost.

That's called state taxes....police, fire and roads are something needed unless we go back back to wild west law, which I am in favor of by the way. Health care is a totally different beast....i can't make you not have kids because you can't afford them, I can't make you eat healthy foods to avoid health risks, I can't make you stop smoking because you'll get cancer.

Those in favor of a single payer, who exactly do you think is going to be paying for that?
Do you think it would be "free"?
Those of us who are working would be paying for it, via a drastic increase in taxes. We would be paying for everyone who is not working.

Open up a history book K.
Cause there was a lot of snip that went on after 1938.
People with problems like that picture were not kept around.
The Nazis were big time in to eugenics.
The master race.
And I'm seeing more and more people (especially on this site) stating that if you can't afford healthcare you deserve to die or that if you're on welfare you should be sterilized. How are those sentiments any different than what the Nazis espoused?
Remind you of something?
screwing over a number of people, especially the working class

What happens when a species takes all their assets and uses it to "help" those who can't or won't help themselves? I guess the in the human mind, that is doing a good thing. In theory, you are being nice and helping others that can't or won't help themselves. You diminish the masses for the minority. If this were intelligence...you are dumbing down the masses to make the minority feel better. If income...you are making the rich poorer to help the poor. Or taking food from the mouths of the dominate to feed the failures.
You may think we are different from other creatures...but we are not. When you take from the successful of the species, bringing them down a few notches...to benefit the weak, poor or failures you diminish the entire species. You end up with a weakened species and follow a path. That path is that the failures will breed more failures and the successful will breed less successful. The species will eventually die. It is called natural selection. It is the biggest law of nature. The strong and successful survive...the weak and the failures die and the species succeeds and thrives.
When the weak and failures are allowed to breed out of their nature...it eventually destroys the species. These are simple facts that can't be denied. While this may sound harsh, you have a simple choice. Prop up the failures and destine humanity to death...or follow the law of nature and save the human race.
Your choice...die or thrive. I don't like it anymore than you do...but it is the way it is.
