I think you're logic is so flawed I don't know where to start.<quoted text>
No, my logic is, I fail to see why I should have a lower standard of healthcare just so someone can have better healthcare. My logic is that my healthcare is not less important than someone elseís healthcare and they have a lot of nerve if they want me to be worse off, just so they can be better off, without lifting a finger.
I also think the government should focus on making healthcare more affordable, rather than simply taking money from some and giving it to others to buy it for them, which is nothing more than cost shifting. If the government took all your assets and gave them to me so that I could buy a Ferrari, that still doesnít make the Ferrari and affordable car or as affordable as say a Ford. Calling that act the ďAffordable Care ActĒ is actually a misnomer. It does almost nothing to make healthcare more affordable at a national level. It simply shifts costs. If they put 10% of the effort into fixing a system that has us pay way more for pharmaceutical drugs than folks do in other nations for the same drugs, as they did into enacting that the ACA, that alone would have saved everyone a ton of money and everyone would have been commending Obama and the democrats.
My logic is also if you set yourself up to be a walmart greeter or a cashier and expect to be paid like a highly skilled worker and expect to receive benefits commensurate with a highly skilled worker, such as an engineer, tradesman, or college graduate, you are quite foolish and you really only have yourself to blame when you find out that walmart greeters and cashiers donít command that level of salary and benefits. Iíd also ask what rock you had been living under for the 18 years before you became an adult, when you should have been thinking about your future. If you thought you could raise a family in that line of work, Iíd say you are downright delusional, should not have had any children, and were irresponsible if you did. Why do folks feel they can have kids they canít afford and expect society to pay for what is really their responsibility? Isnít that irresponsible? Am I missing something?
I also think there are two types of people Ö those who look within when they want to improve their life and those who look at others and expect others to give them stuff when they want to improve their life. While there are no hard and fast rules (hence Iím not talking about ďanyoneĒ or ďeveryoneĒ as you understood) and sometimes bad things happen to good people (thatís the minority, however Ö the vast minority Ö the vast majority who find themselves in need of continuous need of government support mindlessly go through life not thinking about their future or putting in the effort to set themselves up for a good future Ö theyíve abrogated that responsibility), itís this dichotomy of thought process that largely explains why some people achieve and others do not.
We need more achievers in our society and less takers. By rewarding takers with an ever increasing level of handouts, demanding less and less accountability, cost shifting the consequences of poor decision making, punishing achievers by making them pay for more and more handouts for the takers, you incentivize being a taker and disincentivize being an achiever. <<<< This is a fact Ö itís basic human nature Ö itís basic animal nature. Leave dog good out for a coyote and see how much it puts in the effort to go hunt game on its own? A lot of folks are no different. You need to be mindful of this aspect wh
I'm not going to argue on the "afordable care act" b/c I
think it's so flawed it does little to help the ppl that really
need the help.
It is Immoral no to care about others.
It doesn't matter what argument you use to justify it.
B/c it still boils down to this: I want to be well cared
for and I don't give a rats ass about anyone else.
