WOW - do you understand that Medicare is "socialized health care?" I hope your mama didn't eat too many biscuits in her younger days - that would apparently be a disgrace to you.

Agreed. Especially a disgrace if the neighbor's medical issues are brought on by certain lifestyle habits. Why should THEIR choice become MY liability?

Check out the American Cancer Society website - talk to some folks with cancer - then you'll learn that if you don't have private health insurance here, you are worse off than in any other nation in the world. This is why the American Cancer Society launched a campaign this week to obtain a national health care plan.
Get informed and stop listening to the myths.
<quoted text>
Those myths like the NHS's own statistics?
Nationalized health care means care rationing, wait lists and nanny-state social engineering through denial of services.

Medicare may be insufficient. But forcing everyone else into that nightmare is not the answer. Expanding SCHip to cover kids in families with incomes 300% above poverty is not the answer. Reform the tax laws surrounding private insurance. Expand credits and allow yearend carryover on health savings accounts.

Best I can think of is, would I like to be denied emergency care because I didn't have my passport on me when the drunk driver T-boned me?

That's but one of the things that makes this a great country: taking care of people who need it regardless of nationality. "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses", et cetera. Socialism, in one form or another, is part of our society. Taking care of each other is just being a good neighbor.

However, other countries DO provide this unconditional service. For example, I was passing through Germany some years back and my aunt had a cavity that was bothering her but we didn't have a lot of money. Walked into a dentist's office, explained our situation. He sat her down, filled her tooth, and sent us on our way.

I'm glad we didn't have to test that hypothesis. I'm not completely comfortable with the idea of freeloaders, either. But if we button up a few illegals, they get to mow our lawns or clean our hotel rooms a few more years for pennies on the dollar. Fair trade.

The ones that come in and start up on welfare or start slaying, yeah, they gotta go ASAP. If it costs me a portion of my wages to allow more people to be healthier, I'm okay with that. Like many Americans, I'm capable of adjusting to change. I didn't put aside a significant portion of my income while I was serving my country so's I could worry later in life.
