  1. How convenient! If Administrations are on a “7 or 8 year” delay…this economic malaise if because of Clinton. Obama, then, should not do much to fix the economy because it will only redound back to Dubya.

    Methinks Republicans have a hard time with accountability.

    The economy is in the tank because of a lack of trust. The Bush Administration, and their daft policies and their bait-n-switch, has not engendered much trust. Au contraire. And this is only one of the faults of what has wasted the past 7 years…trying to drown the government, rather than evolve it.

  2. Although I agree with personally responsibility, all hospital stays and needs of healthcare are not from people making unhealthy choices. Accidents happen, genetic predispositions, and chemicals lurking in cookware are factors as well.

    My station in life should not dictate my value (health wise) to the government I’m already paying taxes to. I’m paying for a corp. bailout, why not my fellow citizens wellbeing?

  3. Myron,

    Accidents, genetics and luck (lacking a better word) definitely happen.

    I propose that our station in life determines many things: where we live, general quality of life, the car we drive, etc. Why wouldn’t a person’s health care be determined in the same manner?

    No place in the U.S. Constitution does it say that healthcare is the Federal Government’s responsibility.

    An argument can be made that the the corporate bailout falls to the Treasury in its role as the lender of last resort. For the record, I do not with the “bailout” as we know it. I am getting off topic though.

    Respectfully,
    Mark
