No person should have to pay for anyone else. If you can not pay yourself then tough, you dont deserve it. Since when do you get to receive goods
or services and not pay for them. You wouldn't expect to go out to dinner at a nice restaurant that you cannot afford, eat, then expect everyone
else in the place to pay a part of your bill so you could eat for free or at a reduced cost. If you make used Honda wages then you do not deserve to
drive a Mercedes. You would not buy a house that you could not afford and then expect the rest of the tax payers to pick up your mortgage so that you
can live in a really nice house that you cannot afford. (Oh wait, some of you think that IS a good idea!). So why is health care any different?
I already pay for health care for those who can't, its called FICA
By the way I got cancer a few years back and did not have insurance. I had two surgeries that totaled more that $55,000. The cancer treatments were
another $20k. And after 7 years of being cancer free, I have paid all but about $4300 dollars back, I should be done paying it off sometime this
summer. I never asked for a handout, or for anything to be given to me. I paid my bills. I made payments, some big, some small. There were things
that I wanted,but paying off my medical debt that I incurred was the main priority.
How many of you who say you cannot afford to pay for insurance have cable TV, high speed internet, and Ipod, a PSP, an Xbox. etc?
Yeah, health insurance is not cheap. Health care is not cheap. But you get what you pay for. Health care is not a right. If you don't make enough
money for the things you want or need, get an education, then get a job that pays well, limit the kind of dept that you incur, and for Gods sake pay
your own way. If you cant pay for something yourself then you for sure dont deserve it.
That includes health care.
