    why so damn nonchalant in the face of millions suffering? I can't put "unfortunate current realities" aside--they're not talking points to me, Cedwyn--they are my actual realities.

    And, yeah...you may not have put it in those exact words, but you are saying that people being deprived of health care is a good thing.

    i said less availability of EPI would create increased demand for alternative, i.e. government, options.  demand drives changes.
    Less availability of EPI would create increased demand...

    why? why would they be demanding something they aren't deprived of, Cedwyn? who will be driving this big demand if it isn't people who are being deprived of it? Open your damned eyes.

    •  nothing i said even remotely approaches (0+ / 0-)

      it would be a good thing.

      i placed no value judgement on any element of the equation.  i merely pointed out a simple truth about systems.  they tend to have tipping points.

      but i'll point out again that i am not talking about EPI just disappearing overnight.

      and don't you think that maybe less EPI would increase the ranks of the individual policy pools, shifting the cost advantage to that group?  

      why do you assume diminishing EPI automatically equals people with just no coverage?

      Never forget that the Republican War on Women originated with religion; the GOP is but theocracy's handmaiden.

        in self awareness? Do you not see how cold and uncaring your comments are here?

        I assume nothing beyond what is evident on it's face. People have tried to convey to you the harsh realities they are facing and they are met with a blase' and seemingly single minded attempt to brush that aside as if it were of no importance at all.

        I can't be that that coldly clinical for the sake of partisan politics. It's corrosive to my humanity.

        I do put a value judgement on the human cost, something you don't even seem to want to take into account.
