And he pretended he read any of the links I posted regarding free health care diverted from the intended to the US.
Then wondered why he should be personally embarrassed, ashamed.
Reminds me of SDW saying to a poster here that it sucks his provider doesn't allow him to choose his doctor or hospital, because mine does.
Guess it depends on the employer, union.
The old I'm alright, sucks to be you, but I don't give a shit mantra.
Well...to a certain extent, yes. I don't have a responsibility to provide you healthcare. The fact is I chose a profession with certain trade-offs. I have more time off, but cannot choose when I take it. I have slightly shorter hours, but I am bound to them whether I have work to do or not. I have a great benefits package, but my salary is not as high as it would be in the private sector.
In other words, I made choices as we all do every day. One of the results of my choices is having a great healthcare plan. Now, if you'd like make it easier for people to get the kind of coverage I have (make it more affordable), I'm all for that. I just don't think government is the answer here. Why can't we have tax credits, tort reform, portability, etc?
