Healthcare, Hyper-Partisanship & What Larry Winget Believes About Nearly Everything
I believe that basic healthcare is the right of every citizen. I think we have a moral obligation to help people who are sick regardless of what made them that way or whether they have any money or not. If we have the medical ability and expertise to do it, we should do it. It is the right thing to do. That said, I don’t want my tax dollars to pay for people who knowingly ruined their health by eating themselves into diabetes or other obesity related conditions. I also don’t want to support folks who smoked their 3 packs a day and got emphysema or lung cancer or other smoking related condition. They knew what there were doing was stupid and we shouldn’t have to support them. But you can’t exclude them either. I am a mean SOB in many ways but I can’t let people who are sick just die because they were stupid. I just can’t. If you can look sick people in the eye and tell them “no healthcare for you!” I don’t understand you. I can let stupid people who bought more house than they could afford be foreclosed on but I can’t let sick people die. Especially over politics or money. It’s not right.
I don’t believe we can afford to tax ourselves any more in order to pay for the proposed healthcare plan. That will only put a burden on small businesses that will contribute even more to our economic problems. We should be doing whatever it takes to help small businesses, not hinder them. Taxing people and businesses more is not the way to fix this problem. I don’t want more taxes period right now. You can’t tax or spend your way out of an economic mess.Details
