We live in a society where we have a social contract. In War, we ask people to put their lives at risk for US. Now, there are Spineless Chickenhawk Draft Dodger who use deferments and Boo Boos on their foot to avoid their debt to us, but millions answer the call. You are argue that Trump, Rush Limbaugh and Ted Nugent owe us nothing. Wrong, you owe a debt you can never pay. You are obviously a Republican who doesn't pay his debts.  MEDICARE is a tax we all pay our whole working lives, GOP MASSIVE VICIOUS RICH REPUBLICAN TAX CUTS are being paid for by cutting $400 BILLION from MEDICARE. But, yes, offering CHIP, Healthcare for sick and dying children, is a moral question. You argue the Scrooge argument, let them die and decrease the surplus population. Shame on you.

Claiming that it is a right does not make it so. There is no natural right to health care. It can't be a right because it's a service or commodity that someone has to pay for. Obtaining health care means taking advantage of time, skills, and resources that belong to other people. You cannot encroach on their human right to in order to guarantee someone else a "right".

trump, the Repubs. who support him, and that mindless base are proud that they have deprived children of health care. They will deny it, but it’s in their greedy and shortsighted tweets, statements, and posts.  

After all, one of them told us,big deal, the parents were irresponsible.

 Doubt this will change their minds, for their hearts are black, but thank you @gruffstuff for the article. It’s good to know that there are still those who enter their chosen professions to help others and not out of greed. 

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

Republicans failed miserably in their attempt to repeal and replace PPACA, so instead they passed a "budget bill" that kills PPACA slowly with no provision for anything to replace it.

 

Even GOPers need to realize that allowing millions of healthy young people to NOT buy health insurance will not keep them from getting sick or injured and becoming parasites on the health care system, using the ER at $2500/visit which they do NOT pay for instead of going to a family physician for $150/visit that their insurance DOES pay for.

 

GOPer dupes ranted endlessly about the fact their insurance costs kept going up instead of admitting the increases were MUCH smaller than they had been all the years before PPACA.

 

Now they'll rant about how their costs are rising as fast as they did BEFORE Obamacare, never admitting it's because their party put millions of freeloaders back into the system, and refused to pay for what they did.

At least we have a few with compassion who get it , like Melinda & Bill and Warren , to name a few. They realize without the 99% they would have nothing.

Health care is a right, and not a priviledge. Most people react immediately to a medical crisis without a thought about someone having a lot of money or insurance. If we see someone lying in the street after being hit by a car or someone screaming in pain, we react and don't ask them who insures them. We need universal health care with more local clinics that can handle minor issues so that someone doesn't have to wait weeks to see a doctor or a specialist. The problem is that we have a health care system that wants to make huge profits. When people are ill and desperate, and many try to treat it themselves for awhile, they want a health care system that treats them. A healthy society is a productive one.

Never turn our backs on Children !!! It will take more than giving $19 a month to St. Jude.

Republicans pretend to hate freeloaders (unless they're really rich like the 4000 with +$1M incomes who pay no Federal Income tax) but they love them when the freeloading will destroy health insurance for 34 million hard working Americans andtheir families.

 

The GOP hatred for the 47% who pay no FEDERAL INCOME tax is hatred for Seniors on SS, the disabled, low ranking military and all military serving in combat, young people working part-time and everyone working full time or more at the minimum wage.

 

How can anyone expect good from a group that is filled with hatred based entirely on a person's financial condition?
