They're all interconnected Verno, I keep saying it over and over. It all comes down to personal responsibility. It's on you to get education, it's on you to get a job, etc etc. This includes healthcare, you want decent health care? GO GET A FUCKING JOB.

No, it's offtopic ranting that has little to do with the ACA or health care itself. The fact that you totally fail to see your own circular logic is just amusement icing on the cake though. You can't get a decent job if you're sick and you can't get better without health care. Let's also ignore the people who lose their coverage due to no fault of their own like a company going belly up or the economy tanking. That's totally ignoring special cases who are often dropped or excluded from health care due to financial profiteering. Forgetting all of that though on a basic level we have a society of people for a reason, it's not a collection of individuals but a society presumably working towards commonly governed goals. People can't be functional in society without their health and create a much larger strain on our nations finances than providing coverage does. People who don't have their health have a perfect excuse to lay around on the public teat by the way, not that this is even a big issue considering how low fraud figures are for most social programs.

The idea that birth grants you a free ride just because a bunch of liberals base everything off of fucking feelings is ridiculous. What's more ridiculous is anyone with a brain cell buying into it.

Yes how ridiculous that people have a right to be alive and healthy in society, those damned liberals.
