Right now, for your country, yes limited government is a bad thing. It is limited Government that failed to oversee the banks which led to the Banking and thus subsequent financial crisis.
In other ways though the Republican administration of Bush was hardly limited, launching invasion after invasion. But other that that, at home, the administration was a shell of a force and could not even deal with Hurricaine Katrinas consequences.
You pay taxes to get a service and protection from the Government, you aint getting either.
Both federal spending and private spending on health care are likely to continue to increase in the immediate future and to constitute a greater share of GDP.
If these figures are accurate, the program's cost could easily be $4.5 trillion over 10 years, not the $1.04 trillion CBO is claiming. That new financial burden would be a disaster for the deficit.

I think national health insurance is a great idea. Care for
all, who could argue with that?
I could argue with that because it's illegal.
Please show me where in the Constitution does it say nationalized healthcare is a right? Is it before or after the right to free speech and religion or the right to bear arms?
