I hope everyone against a government health care system has their kids in private schools, don't drive on roads, and won't call 9-1-1 when their lives are on the line and they need police or their house is on fire. I hope these people also won't ever collect social security or use Medicare. These systems are socialized. Just like the new health care system, whatever it is (who can keep up with it right now?), will be.
I had someone try to counter this with, "At least I won't be fined if I don't pay." Well, first off, we don't know what this bill will actually do. There've been changes so fast I don't think the media can keep up. But she's wrong anyway. If you withhold taxes because you don't want to pay for public schools, roads, etc., well, you'd be going to jail for tax evasion.
Health care and life should be rights, not privileges. Once upon a time, social security and Medicare were just as controversial. Now, if you were take those things away, people would be screaming bloody murder and calling for a mutiny. It would cost so much less money for someone to be able to go to the doctor for preventative treatment or at the start of a problem, like a UTI, rather than to have to wait until an ER is necessary, then find out that waiting resulted in that UTI turning into a kidney infection requiring hospitalization that the person can't pay for, which the hospital subsequently writes off as a loss, meaning that much less to pay taxes on, a loss which the taxpayers will ultimately subsidize. May as well get that person a script for Zithromax at the start and save everyone time and money.
Universal health care was controversial in Canada and the UK too when stated, and now look. Those people receive better care than Americans. We only have the best health care it we can access it. Right now tens of millions of families don't have access.
