  •  Government Cannot Be sued (0+ / 0-)

    In general, public employees (folks employed by the government) cannot be sued.  Sovereign immunity.  Admittedly there are exceptions, but unless specified by law, one of the savings of the government health care is that they won't be sued. So why can't doctors at least be capped instead of paying outrageous malpractice insurance?  The government takes advantage of it.  As for the tax system, I don't like it either, but I use TurboTax so for $50 I get a first-class audit free return so I don't pay more than I have to.  I don't gratefully pay for anything more than I have to.  

    •  Perhaps (0+ / 0-)

      gratefully was the wrong term. Perhaps 'willingly' paying something so that those who don't have health care get it would actually be a bonus considering the cost to every American of the system we have now.

      •  I'm Sorry, I'm Not Willing (0+ / 0-)

        There is nothing on the floor right now that I'm willing to pay additional for when I'm barely scraping by now.  No thank you.
