It's not free, some other taxpayer who has their services reduced is paying for it.

Must be nice to have that FREE VA health care and then sit and gripe about some low income woman getting a free health screening.

I'm sure God would agree with you that poor don't deserve health care, Schmahl.

No its not free its part of the $3500 tax on middle class families for Obamacare, the top 80% get premiums and rate increases while their care rationed to cover the bottom 20%.

This had nothing to do with Obamacare. It was a free basic check up provided by a local hospital, volenters, and other doners. They have been doing this for years.

When the government offers a "free" service; it is paid for by tax payers, so it is not "free". When a private organization and volunteers are offering it then they are giving it away free of charge to anyone. As such it is the very definition of a free service.

I'll never understand why people insist health care be FREE.

In many cases these freeloaders have the money but insist on getting the free stuff from Government/other taxpayers.

Friends of mine are like that, they are always snooping around crying poor me and then taking all the free stuff they can off the labor of others.

The freeloaders are not black, they come in every ethenticity..

Seems to me the cause is Government can't say one word: "NO".
