Let's prove that "American Exceptionalisim" is more than just hubris. The richest country on earth....a country with 27 year old billionaires and super rich hedge fund managers and venture capitalist who produce nothing, a country with a growing and dangerous divide in the wealth of it's citizens....the least a country like our's can do is provide universal health care from the cradle to the grave.
The rich can grumble about socialisim but they'll still be able to build 20,000 square foot mansions in Aspen that they use two weeks a year.

Free? I'm not so sure about 'free' Jim. I'd be happy with affordable. Affordable for all. Free for the poor sure... Cheap for the working poor...

We pay for it now, we should have it. It is the most humane thing we can do. Provide health care to all of our citizens.

Free is a misnomer, a single payer system is what we should have. F*#k the lobbyists!

Nothing is free accept our constitutional rights. Healthcare is a service, it can never be "free".

You're right, Mr Donini.

The government should force other people to pay for your healthcare, because paying for it yourself is, like, a real drag.

Hey there, Jim.

You may have a point.

Each of us has their own point.

Some of us, unfortunately, have it right on on the tip-tops of their heads.

Setting my own watch, had I one.

I know, but I'll defer to the resident experts...should be a fascinating opportunity to share their philosophy.

You guys go climbing and dirtbag your way through life. I will work 60 hour weeks to make a modest salary and do the weekend warrior thing and pay for your health care.

Yeah, I will be stuck in the office and will only pull .10a while you guys get free health care and glorious routes all to yourself.

Time to tell the kids to dirtbag it.

thanks man.

I'm already doing that to pay for my own healthcare.

If you guys want free healthcare and the uptopian socialism ideals there is nothing stopping you from moving to Europe and giving up your U.S. citizenship. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. Hasta la vista.
