Boy, this guy’s a real selfish jerk. It’s like taxes, dummy — you don’t get to choose what your tax dollars are used for…you just pay them with the belief that they will be used to benefit our society. That’s what citizenship and community and compassion are all about — contributing to the safety and welfare of ALL the people so no one is excluded. If we had universal/single-payer health care, it would operate the same way — for the good of ALL our citizens.
