I play MWO with a few guys from Canada, it has happened not only to them personally but to others they know as well. We are 17+ TRILLION in debt. Can you honestly see this thing going well? C'mon man think for a second.

Yeah I am totally going to buy some Ventrilo anecdotes as indicative of a system as a whole, one that I have personal experience with. The national debt wasn't arrived at by introducing the ACA and balancing the books and providing healthcare are not mutually exclusive.

We're going to have less personal choices, pay more, and the freeloaders will still be freeloading. How the fuck is that a solution? Honestly, sugar coat it if you have to, but give me a legitimate reason this is going to be at all better.

Things I like about the ACA - the entire concept, standards for things like pricing dissemination and a potential ban on exclusion due to pre-existing conditions. Basic coverage for people who are already sick. It is really difficult to think of things I don't like about it, most of my complaints are going to be related to implementation but that's why we change and improve things.

Not paying for the so called "freeloaders" is more expensive in both tracking and administration costs, not to mention we pay for them in critical care regardless. It is better for a society as a whole to keep its citizens healthy and working. The fact that you lack that understanding or empathy on a basic level tells me that all of these words are wasted on you.

No the debt was arrived at fighting the Cold War, and continued by both parties with no end in sight.

It's not that I lack empathy, I just come from a background where I honestly didn't have life handed to me and worked my god damn ass off to get the required knowledge in order to do something I enjoy and make decent money at. The way I look at it, if I can manage to do it, so can they.

I didn't realize it's the government's job to provide people with a life just because they're too lazy to make something of themselves. Guess I've been doing it wrong huh?
