    Not surprised that this is what it’s come to… Too bad Congress is ‘bypassing’ this wonderful healthcare that their constituency may end up with since they are getting the best of care on our dime.

    Some people work, save, and plan so they can afford state of the art sticks. Others play, have large families they cant afford, and expect someone else to pay for a good stick. Didn’t Darwin have something to say about this?

    The stick looks like a divining rod.

    yes, survivor of the fittest- screw the lame , the indigent , the unfortunate, the uninsured because of joblessness…..let them and their children die…so that we, the superior ones who “worked and planned” can rightfully claim the resources of the world as our entitlement

    screw them all , except for me and mine

    hail the blue circle!

    Does anyone realize that this is a lie? Whether they can pay for it or not, doctors are obligated to help people to the best of their ability. They can be sued for not stopping to help someone stopped at the side of the road!

    nighthawks(GENIUS) is expressing the typical view of the Statist wherein people must be seen as “groups” or “classes”. “The homeless”, “the uninsured”, always seen as poor, helpless victims of some vague, nasty other group, such as “The rich”, or “the insurance companies” or “wall street”, or “big pharma” or…..? This is always their excuse for expanding the Federal Monstrosity to come to the rescue. Do any of you thinkers out there STILL believe in this concept?

    You get better results with carrots than with sticks.

    Bikemaster did not recognize the satire in Nighthawks insightful and poignant delivery.
