And you agreed to stealing money from some people to subsidize others. You agree with a government take over healthcare. Big healthcare insurance companies got what they wanted now it's the banks turn <sarcasm>

The BIG difference is, you want a piece. Don't worry, the banks will lower standards on loans to poor people to help them buy a home afford. The tax payer will just bail them out when we wash and repeat.

Patriotically....

Mircea
So expanding health care to all Americans is equivalent to Nazi-ism how?

$20 minimum wage would be great for this country. That's about where it should be to begin with. I'll settle for the current $7.25 wage floor ONLY IF union membership is mandated going forward.

Dude I have health care, I don't care on a personal level. The moral thing to do would be to allow all Americans equal access to basic health care.

Dude! it's moral to steal from me to pay for "others"? I don't think so. It's moral to pay your own way but we know, people aren't woman or man enough to do that so they must justify STEALING.

Taxes aren't stealing; it's really not worth discussing anything with you if you propose such a ridiculous framing.

I volunteer to give some of my money to government. I don't volunteer to give so much. That is STEALING. I know it's easy for you to be generous with someone else's money especially when you are probably on the receiving end of the stolen money.

Taxes CAN be a form of stealing from some to give to others. It is not ridiculous to point out the immorality of redistribution of money.

Let me be Frank
Money taken without consent= stealing
If I break into your house and take a twenty off the dresser, its stealing.
If a government agency takes twenty off your paycheck without you agreeing, its stealing.

Did you work to earn the money? NO? So what right do you have to say anything?
