I would be. I don't go to the doctor, even when I have health insurance. I can and do live with pain. everyone dies of natural causes.

So if you got hit by a car & broke your arm, you'd just live w/it? Walk around w/it dangling at your side like some zombie? Maybe get an infection from it? Then the infection spreads, killing you. There's your death by natural causes.

No I agree the right to vote is much more basic.

But I like the right to universal affordable healthcare as well.

I think I will vote for those who promote this and you can do the opposite.....Good luck with that.

When the thugs in DC have brought this nation to its knees, the healthcare-welfare system can be successfully instituted, along with all their other beloved socialist "programs". We will be weakened beyond measure. This is a negative outlook, but it is a coming reality. And more than concerning. Unless we do something now to stop these marxists. But this is not just a fight with this administrations, but also a battle with the idiot millions of leftists who put in the Charlatan in the WH, Congress and their three stooges (Pelosi, Reid and Frank) and the seemingly unstoppable media leviathon. Biden a competing loon, but just an insignificant afterthought....

Don't know that the worn-down, worn-out hard-working sane folks who keep this country afloat are up for the challenge.....just too tired of the fight maybe, too taxed to death and more coming. Will we last another three years of being beaten down, companies and corporations going under or bought out by bureaucracy, the threat of other markets (auto, energy, housing, banking) going down or bought out (blackmailed) by bureacracy? Will we wake up in time?

Three very different services compared to a doctor's visit. Your house burns to the ground, the fire department (tax dollars) doesn't buy you a new house. Your house is burglarized, the police department (tax dollars) doesn't replace your door or windows. So why should universal health coverage (taxpayer dollars) pay for unclogging your arteries when you have a heart attack?

Thanks for echoing my thoughts and concerns.

I have broken several bones without going to the doctor. I fractured my skull, which I am sure is obvious by some of my posts, and I didn't go to the doctor. I used a stapler and super glue to put my head back together. I found out about it when I thought I was going to die because my blood pressure was so high. they gave me a MRI and discovered the skull fracture. if I was on my death bed, I might go to the doctor, but I can live in pain. plus I do have $4000 handy, and if people don't, they need to manage their finances better.

Do you write Harlequin Romance books by chance?

Your rhetoric is emotionally delicious. Just fabulous. Fabulous.
