Taxes of course. You know- the ones that Jesus specifically told you to pay.


Funny to me how 'christians' insist on passing all manner of laws compelling people to adhere to their notions of 'morality' (not unlike the Pharisees, eh?). But then they scream bloody murder at the thought that the government is gonna compel people to help the poor just like Jesus said to do.

And how are the sick healed now if they can't afford it. Do you honestly think Jesus would turn them away. Jesus was about love....some of his followers these days not so much.

You'd have to believe in prayer, not money.

But you have no right to force others to contribute to your insurance pool so that provider and hospital corp. costs are inflated because of a guaranteed income stream to them that you created.
I agree, that is why I support the public option, something Republicans have been very much against.

Do you know how much destructive, unnecessary dental work is performed because of Medicaid?

And do you have any idea how many lives are saved, and how much completely needed medical work is done?

You're offering a false analogy.
