    It should not be upto the government to determine whether someone should have insurance or not. That's the whole point of a free democracy. But, you wouldn't know anything about that, Canadian.
    You - bankrupt
    Me - not

    Keep thinking the way you do loser!

    Yeah - that whole "representative Democracy" thing. Either party tends to be all for it, until they are out of power.

    Jon Stewarts' - "losing isn't tyranny" / "...it's supposed to taste like a **** taco" bit on this back in April was spot-on:

    Do you believe the government should force the public to spend money on health insurance?

    We already do. It's called Medicare and Medicaid.

    Question for you; do you believe our taxes should increase to cover everyone?

    Yes. Because you will go bankrupt if we don't cover you.

    I still can't believe you're the one arguing against this when you're the one, of all the folks in this forum, who would benefit the most.

    It's mind-boggling how idiotic some people really get.

    If other funding options have been exhausted. Many changes can be made to Medicaid and Medicare.

    Without question,Yes.And what burns me the most are the protesters at these Health Care Town Meetings who are obviously old enough to be(and most likely are) enrolled in Medicare.It doesn't get much more "socialist" than Medicare but if any Congressman seriously tried to "free" them from their "socialist yokes" they would be booted out of office so fast it would make your head spin.

    Swastika painted on sign outside office of congressman who had contentious health care meeting
    By Ben Evans, The Associated Press

    WASHINGTON - Someone spray-painted a large swastika on a sign outside the office of a U.S. congressman who was involved in a contentious argument over health care at a recent community meeting.


    Democratic Rep. David Scott, who is black, said the swastika is the latest example of what he believes is an increasingly hateful and racist debate over reforming health care. The Atlanta lawmaker said he also has received mail in recent days that used racial slur references to him, and that characterized President Barack Obama as a Marxist.


    "We have got to make sure that the symbol of the swastika does not win, that the racial hatred that's bubbling up does not win this debate," Scott said in a telephone interview. "That's what is bubbling up with all of this. There's so much hatred out there for President (Barack) Obama."


    Scott said staffers discovered the graffiti Tuesday morning at his Smyrna, Georgia, district office. The Nazi emblem covered a sign bearing the congressman's name.


    Scott said local police were notified along with the FBI, the U.S. Secret Service and U.S. Capitol Police, who have warned lawmakers about potential threats stemming from the increasingly emotional debate over health care reform.


    Scott, a moderate Democrat who represents a majority-white district, said he thinks the racism is isolated but can't be ignored. He said the swastika was probably intended as a warning but hopes it instead convinces reasonable people that it's time to cool down the rhetoric surrounding health care.


    "We must not allow it to intimidate us," he said.


    Scott's Smyrna office is located in a bank building, so he said he is optimistic that surveillance cameras captured the vandalism.


    At an Aug. 1 community meeting Scott angrily yelled at protesters who peppered him with questions and complaints about Democratic health care proposals. He has said he was upset that they interrupted a meeting that was supposed to be about plans for a new highway in the area.
    Oh great. Now the neo-nazis are getting involved.

    Racism is still alive in America. No wonder so many are so pissed, what with a black president and all.

    No, it's not your, nor the rest of the public responsibility to cover me. In America, you either make or break. You earn your keep, but apparently, in Canada, everyone is the same. You don't have to do anything on your own. It's called personal responsibility, and apparently you haven't picked up that concept yet.

    You never answered the question; yes or no.

    I'm done with you. You just don't get it. You never will.

    So go bankrupt again, and I won't be around to tell you "I told you so" because I no longer care about your ridiculous position.

    I just hope you don't contaminate the rest of America with this sillyness.

    Any time a Republican is in office, lefties blame everything that happens during that time on a "free market." It makes no difference that the Republican Party is in the business of expanding government, not restricting it.

    I believe every Democrat on this board has blamed the current healthcare problems, the recession, credit card debt, etc. on a "free market" despite the fact that we have had nothing of the sort.

    Why should citizens get to vote on what affects other citizens? Should a "majority rules" be in effect for everything?
