I haven't really editorialized on the health care thing much in part because I don't have a level detached philosophical response to provide. That said, I'd like to put my opinion forward now.

Shut the fuck up, you fucking moron assholes. Shut up you fucking senators who already fucking have government subsidized health care that, by the way, my tax dollars are paying for. Shut up you crazy people at town hall meetings. Wipe the spittle from your mouths. If I had a way to make sure each and every one of you were without health care for a year or two, I'd do it. I'd push that button.

As an uninsured American with a number of "pre-existing conditions," whose income bracket lurks somewhere in the vicinity of the poverty line, I'd like to invite you paranoid backwards pieces of shit to seriously shut. The fuck. Up. Basically every word out of your mouth is a claim that I don't deserve to be healthy, that many of the people I love don't deserve to be healthy. Frankly, if we don't get some kind of public plan, I will be clamoring for euthanasia options for my remaining elderly relatives, because none of them will be able to afford to live in anything resembling comfort.

And by the way, I'm guessing some of you people are the ones who like to blame the unions for everything that goes wrong with our economy. Those unions are the only reason anyone has any kind of private health care, just so you know. Otherwise the hegemonic rich dudes who are encouraging you poor white trash to make so much noise at town hall meetings wouldn't have reason to give you shit.

Wait, as a grad student you're uninsured? Suddenly I have a whole new appreciation for Penn State.

And yeah, shut the fuck is pretty much the only possible response to this bullshit.

Yes! This is the post I've been wanting to write all week, but I couldn't get past "SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU MOTHERFUCKING ASSHOLES".

I said it once, and I'll say it again:

"What really irks me is that one guy on the Right walked into the pet store and uttered the word "Socialism," and it set off every goddamned parrot in the building."

Let's privatize the fire department too while we're at it. Morons.

I have one contention with the plan. So far I've heard of nothing that prevents private employers from cutting corporate health insurance to save the millions of annaul dollars once workers are able to get public health care, which would put a far greater strain on the economy.

Also, I don't think people should be excluded from public health care as long as their employers offer health insurance. For example, the girl I'm seeing now, the health care her company offers costs roughly $250 a month. She makes roughly $400 to $600 a month. How is that affordable?

Many states are already offering Socialist public health care for every child under eighteen, and that seems to be working out fine. Millions of people in Europe aren't dying for lack of proper medical care.

November is coming up. We could put it to a public vote. I bet there are far more poor and sick people out there than there are wealthy morons, and if people feel this strongly about it, the voter turnout would dwarf the last Presidential elections.

AMEN! I had no health care for some five years and no way of obtaining it. The system is fucked and it has to change.

This. I have to say that I am with you, but lack your eloquence. That, and the fact that with the wars still on the price of ammo is still up, so I try not to get into discussions with a lot of these people, cause it is just not worth it and I am not that nice.
