frick that. I pay for my own damn health insurance, so I'll eat and drink whatever the hell I want to. Why should I be taxed?


I pay into an insurance plan through my employer... our rates get adjusted every year due to the amount of claims... at the end of the day, we all end up paying for the issues of everyone else. I would assume with universal health insurance, the issue will be on an even bigger scale.

Exactly.

We pay more if other people make more claims.

You're stepping over dollars to pick up pennies with that argument. Focus on all the people who show up at the hospital to receive free healthcare first. Then, worry about the fat people.

There's a reason shite is so expensive at the hospital. It's because you and I are paying for the people who didn't.

Um. You most certainly already pay for those poor decisions. Difference is that they receive sub-standard care from only being allowed to go to the ER AND it's more expensive for the people who foot the bill (taxpayers).

No. The point is to push all of the healthy people that can afford insurance, but don't have it, into the insurance pool. That way it's cheaper for everyone that can afford insurance and everyone receives care.

Oh, and the government isn't forcing you to buy into Obamacare. You can opt out, you just pay a tax.

Exactly why I didn't want the government in charge of my health care. This is exactly the kind of nanny state attitude that we were stupid not to expect when we gave the government that much power.

I hate soda and I think it's one of the worst things you can do to your body, but I'm glad he invalidated the ban, shit's ridiculous.
