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?

I'm talking about health care, not giving people free cars and money. You're off on yet another vague tangent about responsibility that has nothing to do with anything. You do not have a functional, productive society without healthcare and people without it are a drag on the system. I am totally fine with some of my taxes going toward health care, they do already and I think a healthy society is worthwhile spending. You want to talk about overhauling social security then you'll get more sympathy for me, demonizing the ACA without any substance gets you zero traction.

If you want to live in a world where you are only responsible for yourself and don't have to worry about anyone else then go buy a plot of land in Alaska and live the dream.
