    So would I.

    My other right wing brother said to me, "I don't understand why you're a Democrat.  You've got it made-- why should you want to pay higher taxes?"

    Um, because I care about people other than myself?

    Um, because we're all in this together?

    Um, because I was able to get my higher education through student loans and government grants?

    Um, because you already have a single-payer health care system at your disposal as a veteran and a person on MediCare, which I don't begrudge you, but why do you begrudge it to others?
