To be honest I don't think a universal health care sysytem is the way to go. I'm not saying babies and children don't deserve to have the same rights as me, and be cared for when sick....I am just saying that I feel it's unfair to take away from people in the middle class who work so hard to pay for their insurance (b/c I can tell you right now it's not cheap) and give health care to people who have illegally entered our country or those who are citizens and don't pay taxes and are already a drain on our fragile economy. If they can be criminals/deadbeats (in the sense that they have come here the wrong way, or can work but choose not to) and they get free health care.....Why do I a tax paying law obeyding citizen, born in this country, have to pay hundreds of dollars for the same care? So I guess i see it as a privelage.
Too many people are taking the everyday stuff for granted such as getting medical attention when you seek it......That is a privelage you have because you live in the United States....Just as it would be an amazing privelage if you lived in a 3rd world country. Just b/c you live here doesn't mean you get to take advantage and take for granted everything wonderful that is offered here.
