OK, you're learning. Just saying, when I quote someone's post, I want them to read my reply. Their point is the one I'm agreeing/disagreeing with.
That's what YOU mean to do when you quote someone. I already told you how I am different.
Ummm, if they are "young and healthy", WHY AREN'T THEY WORKING AT JOBS WITH BENEFITS?
I know this wasn't directed at me, but I'd like to address it anyway.
I'm sure many people would love to have a great job with wonderful health benefits. The fact of the matter is that it is not easy to obtain those kinds of jobs for many people. There are far more people than there are quality jobs with good healthcare.
Obama is a socialist, so he advocates government social programs.
As a socialist, I can tell you that Obama is NOT a socialist - at the very least, not nearly to the extent real socialists like myself would like him to be.
?Most poor people won't use even a discounted $25 co-pay as incentive to visit the doctor for preventative care... they will use it to buy their next pack of smokes, a few items off the Mickey D's $1 menu, and some lottery tickets.
This is one of the major problems with America: Those who aren't poor seem to think everyone who is poor must be wasting the money they do have or save, which simply isn't true in many cases.
To attack poor people this way tells me you have probably never been poor or faced significant financial struggle in your life - because if you had, you wouldn't think like this.
The fact of the matter is that not all poor people waste money. Not all poor people smoke. If they do eat at "Mickey D's", it's only because they can't afford something nicer like you probably can. They don't all play the lottery, and if they do, it's only because they dream of not being poor (something you may take for granted).
