    "Taking away the freedom to take care of your
    because somebody else has decided what your priorities should be and how you should take care of them is not the best thing, either."

    every country in the known world does this. the difference is, we (sort of) have the opportunity to make our desires felt, on election day. presumptively, our elected representatives vote for those things that do the best, for the greatest number of people. it's how we got a post office, a national interstate system, public schools, a national military, airports, marine ports, etc., etc., etc. all of which we, the people pay for.

    when all the provisions of ACA kick in, people at the bottom economic rung will get nearly cost-free health insurance. the "freedom" to do nothing, eventually results in someone else paying the tab, there is no such thing as a free lunch.

      We poor old folks who can't afford good health care tend to get confused sometimes.
