Sorry...gotta post my FB reply about ACA:

I foolishly got sucked into an exchange with a "friend" who couldn't understand why poor people should be granted "free" health care. For some reason, I respondend...


So once again, the most conservative, right-wing SCOTUS on record says this is legal. Who are you actually fighting?

I mean, really...who are you fighting at this point? We accepted GWB as president just because some old people in black robes said they though he should be president.

Now, those same old people in robes say Obama's health care bill is legal.

What the bloody fuck am I missing?

1. Frankly, EVERYBODY should get 'free' health care

But the USA isn't civilized enough to offer such a plan. We would rather give rich people big tax cuts so they can by Hampton's Mansions and pricy art.

3. The alternative is death for a lot of people.

Is that the Romney Plan?

4. Who does he think pays for the poor person

who gets hit by a bus and taken to the hospital? We pay for it with higher costs to cover the losses to the hospital. We will save money by getting the poor insurance and cutting the losses for the medical care. It benefits everyone.

5. Does he think disease cares about insurance paperwork?

Uninsured and untreated people make great incubators for bugs that can infect insured people.
