Nevertheless, this is what it is.
You whine and bitch that you have to PAY it, yet when someone slams into your car and has NO insurance, you whine and bitch that your car is
wrecked, cant afford a new one, etc. You whiners will NEVER be happy
Well, it's just that the slippery slope always bites you in the ass. When you accept the car insurance argument, the health insurance argument is
inevitable. Now we have the POTUS standing up on TV telling us we don't have the right to cross the street without health insurance and he's gonna
fine us and call it a tax if we refuse.
I must confess that I never saw that one coming. I never liked having to pay for auto insurance but I grudgingly conceded that it was a reasonable
solution for a very difficult problem (even if insurance companies are just taking advantage of the situation).
But you could not have told me ten years ago that the government was going to send the IRS after me if I didn't buy health insurance.
What is next? Mandatory employment? Government assigned jobs? Don't laugh. If you don't work, you can't buy your mandatory insurance.
Why did we get rid of the mafia, again? The liberals have always complained about the robber barons and yet they act just like them when it comes
around to making their crazy ideas work.
