Ok so I know there's tons of threads on this already but it gets muddled after 20 or so pages so here's my 2 cents. I strongly oppose universal healthcare, why? Read the constitution nowhere in it does it say the gov. has the right to provide health insurance, nowhere. That's it period, the government is allowed to do it so it shouldn't. Now for my opinion. Why do I (personally) think we shouldn't have healthcare? I'm sorry if you have some sort of medical condition but I've maybe been to the doctor 3 times in my life (excluding vaccinations and routine shit) those 3 times I got a prescription for antibiotics, that was it. I eat healthily, I exercise regularly, and I am healthy. I plan to never have to use health insurance. So sure I may be lucky but that doesn't mean me and my families tax dollars have to go to pay for a tripple bypass, or high blood pressure medication for fat people who eat mcdonald 10 times a week and never leave the couch. If you're sick it's your job to get yourself better, you can't pawn that responsibility off on the rest of the country. Lastly just because I can't see why people don't see this, but a pre-existing condition is a 110% adequate reason for now letting someone have heath insurance. Health insurance IS gambling, you're paying money on the off chance that one day you'll need it. You can't expect a company to agree to accept small monthly payments knowing full well that you're going to take more money from them. It's like betting on roulette when you already know the outcome. Sorry for the semi-rant really only the first paragraph is important but I suppose we get alot of that in the politics section.
