Most people who are working, actually "working" would pay for their own healthcare if need be.

I am with her that the typical "welfare" person expects the "working" people to pay for their healthcare. So why should I pay for some lazy ass bums healthcare so they can eat twinkies and get even fatter on my free food?

Why do people defend the lazy bums and always come back with what would you do?

The question should be directed at the welfare bums. Why are you not working and paying for your OWN food and health care.

I pay for my own healthcare, why cant you? Its called work a job or two or three to pay for it.

No more freebies and no taxes on my health care to pay for someone to eat free food and get so fat they have to have a handicap sticker in their windows to walk into the store to get more twinkies?

Dump welfare, dump all free healthcare and dump everything that you do not or have not EARNED by WORKING.

Ya think? I work in a dr's office, and I beg to differ. If the ins. doesn't pay for a drug, pt wants something else. If the ins. won't pay for a procedure, pt. doesn't want to get it done. ETC.

Your contempt for your fellow human beings is astounding!

The lazy bums argument. How original.

Why are so many people obsessed with these mythical "lazy bums?"

Boy you need a reality check.

Maybe because they're not all mythical?

There's a good share of them that seem to be comfy in their welfare program (or they wouldn't stay on it and we'd see the numbers shrinking).

We simply cannot pay for everyone else's healthcare.

It is not my job to pay for your health care.

We need to find a way to make each and every person who is healthy enough to work to pay for their own instead of allowing them to sit back and be a blood sucking freebie case.

We have far to many healthy people who are on welfare and free health care and it needs to stop.

No more free anything. I have to pay for it and so should you.

Every single person needs to be responsible for themselves. We need to stop rewardiing losers and bums and get them to actually get a real job!

2008, 52.6% of all Americans received some form of welfare. This is ridiculous.


Add that to the 45% of all Americans who are not paying a single dime in taxes and we have gone to far.

Time to line them up and do a heathcare check and put them to work.

Can you imagine the money we could save if we forced the bums to actually work for their free stuff?

They do not need to draw a paycheck, they need to simply give back to us by working out their freebies.

I do not recall asking you to pay for my health care, bub!

It would help if all jobs offered health insurance, instead of relying on medicaid for their low-wage workers.

No, I need some data? Got any numbers SD?

Look through those numbers and get back to me with support for your argument.
