I agree that medical insurance needs change. Legislating consumer protection policies is important. Making those policies national and not state by state ensures equality.
However, I emphatically disagree having to pay more taxes to cover the costs of insurance for others. And I loath the idea of a single payer system funded by people like me who work hard for what I have.
I am tired of being forced to compensate for those who make poor choices. I chose to finish school so as to be employable. I chose to work to gain insurance for my family. I choose to drive a older used car and live in a home I can afford. I choose to make insurance a priority over designer purses, a $20,000 wedding, $4.00 designer coffee, $200.00 designer cell phone bills w/internet access, the list goes on and on.
I'm sick and tired of the poor poor pitiful me whining and entitlement mentality that seems so pervasive in our country. This country was built on the backs of people who knew what it was like to work, to sacrafice. Now we are a nation of give me, give me, give me....while sitting back and watching tv, collecting all the government benefits.
