My fellow Americans, I do not want national healthcare, because then I would be paying for... My fellow Americans health. People in this country break bones left and right And if my taxes are raised to cover them then that's ****** to me, it's not my fault they do dangerous things.

So maybe national healthcare works elsewhere, but if this area had the same citizens and new government, healthcare would still be bad.

let's all declare war on the USA!

Hah, yeah and most likely get destroyed in the process.
The USA outspends every other country combined on our military, not only that but most countries, even though they hate the USA, will be missing out big time without it.

No universal healthcare is ******* stupid. Obama's way of doing it is terrible. It's going to hurt a lot more people than it helps. The big million dollar company's will be fine but the small local business are ****** . They are barely making a profit as it is and now you want them to spend even more? I'm not even going to say people COULD lose their jobs, people WILL lose their jobs over this. It's a fact. Also a lot of people will loose a lot of hours. If the minimum is 30 hours a week in order to receive this benefit, they'll only work 29. But let's talk about why I'm against universal health care in general. I'm 20 and actually pay taxes unlike some of the younger people on this site. I don't want my money to go to some drug addict so he can go to the doctor after destroying his body. I don't want to pay for some alcoholics liver transplant. I wont pay for someone who's been smoking their whole life to receive lung cancer treatments. **** that. You ruined your own damn life.

Why do you want government healthcare? Why would anyone want government healthcare? Just by your own for better quality.

And hookers.
Don't forget the hookers.

On a more serious note: Your problem is that bribing politicians is legal in most cases.

Oh, the irony strikes like me like my axe of logic and reason to OP's poorly constructed treehouse of logical fallacies and ignorance.

Healthcare. Privacy.
You DO realize of course, that we are giving up at the very least, SOME part or other of privacy to the government for the sake of "coverage" under the Universal Healthcare Law, right? It's simply the nature of involving the government in your health - as they are involved to an extent that remains to be seen, they know more about you.

My understand is that the IRS will also be involved. Have you ever been audited? Every inch of your financial history is examined with a fine tooth comb; your privacy destroyed. Now, include your MEDICAL history in that as well and factor in that everyone now puts their lives on the internet, privacy is virtually gone.

We all have these poetic notions of a society where its citizens have completely private lives, but everyone has free healthcare provided by the government, or guns are banned, and no one goes hungry.

Your and my opinions on government involvement notwithstanding, the simple fact is that the more products and services your government provided, the more involved the government is with your life, and the less privacy you have.

If you want to have a reasoned debate about gov't involvement, or Obamacare, or my arguments here, I would be more than happy Just keep it respectful; I've gotten into one too many debates plagued by emotions (on both sides) that resulted in an avalanche of red thumbs.)
