and I really hate when people blame Presidents for legislation.
Who else signs it in place?
if you receive government aid, you should have to serve the general public
I wouldn't consider Medicare and Medicaid a government aid. It is a payment for services received.
Obama's a lunatic for demanding Catholic hospitals offer public contraception).
Why are you blaming the president for this???
You just stated that the house and senate are to blame for passed legislation. Double standard much? By the way, as I see it from Germany (and I may be wrong, because their really is a liberal media here) the individual pays part, the employer pays part and the government pays part of the health insurance under o-care. Can't one take the contraceptive funds just from the funds originating from the individuals? Problem solved?
People, by definition of needing emergency services, don't have the time, energy, and attention to figure things out.
So if, by your definition, health care is different than other services provided, why don't we create a system where the poor's health care is subsidized by everyone in a transparent manner and not like it currently is, where hospitals are burdened with transferring the costs from the insured to the uninsured. Additionally, this would probably save money in the long run. With the poor being able to pay for preventive care, which I heard brings long term health care costs down.
