Things to you should think about, 1) The USA is running Thirteen trillion dollar Deficient. The House and Senate have always spent more than what brought in, 2) Do you really think that they will not spend the money when it comes in as medical insurance payments. Like they did to Social security which will tank soon 3) How are they going to pay the outstanding benefits the FICA tax will increase when it happens There far more seniors out their than you and they vote. 4) Medicare will be going down as well they raise Taxes again or us health care money you have put in. Again your vote will not mean much you’re out numberd.5) People die all the time with health care before ever seeing a doctor because they do not want to go or a problem not notices. Heath care does not mean you are going to live longer. You and your future family will be lucky to live two bedroom apartments, maybe a house. 6) This for you to think about, what your life going to be like. Keep taxing the so called rich they will leave. As for me I do not care it’s your future not mine.

Taxes are ridiculously high in this country, they need to go way down. And income tax needs to be erased. A ridiculous amount of our money goes the government who just wastes it on unnecessary crap. Its sicking really.

If you want your own health care, just buy it, you can get a plan customized for you if you shop around. If you complain you cant afford it, get a job that's pays you well enough you can afford it, or get a job that offers it. If you don't want to do that your just a lazy bum who wants everything handed to him.

But fuck universal health care, that's just a pure disaster lol.

America craves spending and extravagance, no matter what the economy is like. We'll keep it up and spend ourselves either in a hole or out of it. Too much rides on the stability of our market.

A little tired, so post some videos. Don't forget the 2 wars on 2 fronts in Iraq (wheres the weapons?) and Afghanistan, that must have been a cheap war.Killing people after all is more important and more debt-friendly than saving our own people.

Maybe people should be against higher taxes if they are against war.

Here's a pie chart for you . The Red is defense 23% spending with most of the pork spending as well. the green is 20% medicare/medicaid 19% the Orange is 17% mandatory spending the light blue 12% Discretionary the yellow is 5% paid on interest and this blunder TARP is 4%. Now come again with your conclusions?

It doesn't matter how they change taxation because the government can always borrow money and spend on whatever it wants. The only job the public has is to forever pay it back to the banks by having it taken it out of people's incomes. America in reality is a bankrupted nation and is technically finished. The international bankers will never allow the country to be debt free. The only purpose for universal health care is for the government to keep track of everyone's activities to be used as statistical data in business models for the medical and pharmaceutical industries. Say hello to modern day serfdom!!

It is extremely naive and ignorant to assume that it's simple for everyone to just get a better job, and that anyone who doesn't is lazy. I don't know what your socioeconomic background is, but that remark sounds like something someone would say if they've had plenty of opportunities handed to them and have never had to struggle to find any or create their own opportunities, so they don't understand that not everyone has it as easy as they do. America is not some fantasy land where there are tons of well-paying jobs that offer health insurance just lying around waiting for any average joe to take them, many people are in poverty (or close to it) and can't afford insurance due to circumstances that no amount of hard work can fix.

Something you have not had to do at 13 I had a full time job going to school on weekdays after school putting in 6 hours was nothing a lot of times 8 because somebody did not show. Putting in 32 hours on a weekend happened many times. I went into the army at 17 after getting out I went to school and worked full time. My first job was in power conversion motor controls the first year 2800 hundred hours. Then from that point on 3500 billing hours and 500 doing, testing and building test set from scratch. Meaning draw up a test rig bending steel wielding it I learned as I went and asked other to show me how. When I went into a steel plant or down a coalmine, I had to make sure people knew and understood I was in charge. On the other hand, get walked over and treated as something less than human it was a man’s world and still is in many ways. So do not tell me it is hard because it is hard nobody has a guarantee for an easy life or even a happy one.

I'm well aware that theirs not an abundance of well paying jobs that offer health insurance, but there are usually plenty of things you can do to better your life. But if you don't take the steps to better your life, it won't get any better will it.

And I know its not that simple as just getting a better job. But there are options avaiable to most people to help them better their lives.

Like most schools offer financial aid, and if your disabled like I am (Aspergers && Bipolar) they offer disability services and fee waivers and stuff. So their are options avaiable to people. But you have to be the one to choose to take that first step towards getting a better life.


I guess what I mean is, if you choose not to better your own life, its not going to get any better, but those who choose to do something about it, and work hard towards that, usually can succeed.

well that assumes a lot.
and it doesn't address an inequality of opportunity.

If you're born poor you have work hard and pray. and Maybe maybe you'll get that ONE chance.

If you're born wealthy you can make mistakes have fate toss curveballs even just lazy for a bit and you still can make a better start of it than someone born poor.

Here is a simple question what are your priorities right now. You are young, healthy I hope and you have a long life ahead of you. Now if you are working how do, you budget your money, or do you even try to do it. Were dose health care come in on your list rent ,power, gas, car insurance, food, party money, computer games so. If you want something, you have to make choice. There are many options out there but get off your scooter and look. Other wises you and Bart have allot in common. Personally, your young I get high deductable solid heath care plain, or just accidentally injury insurance they do not cost much. However, you have to work just to find what you want it not going to fall into your lap.
