If that means not keeping up with the Jones's to pay for health insurance, then so be it. My point? Personal responsibility should dictate life decisions, instead of making life decisions that cause us to fall short in meeting our financial obligations, and thus relying on the government to pick up the rest of the tab. THAT is what is killing this nation. Everyone is expecting government to cover the tab, no matter what bad decisions we make.
I didn't say pick up their tab but healthcare has become so INSANLY expensive that it's scary to get sick! One doesn't choose when to get sick, it happens. Let's say this same couple gets a mediocre health plan (most private "Affordable" health plans fall into this category), and one of them falls critically ill. what then, that was their choice? They chose to get sick?
Now what are they to do? Please don't tell me is personal responsability, this dog eat dog mentatily is what will KILL the country. Helping others who are less fortunate than us won't. I don't think I'll change your mind, you won't change mine, so I'll drop my argument with you, you don't see it, go on.

Last I checked, government workers can and do get fired.

Ever heard of a dishonorable discharge?

Poor analogy. Apples to oranges.

They'd probably do better than the ones in charge of it right now. I work in a dr's office. Just today, a kid fell off a tramp, hit her head, started vomiting. Signs of a head injury. The insurance company required prior authorization to do a CAT scan of her brain. In other words, we had to furnish a bunch of paperwork before they would pay for it. In an emergency! Finally the dr. said he'd just fight the ins. company.
