    • On July 06, 2009, by aharris - If the government were put in charge of the desert, there would soon be a shortage of sand. Logically, if we were to put it in charge of our health care, you do the math. Of course, since they will need money to make the best health care on the planet dry up and disappear, we will be forced to put them in charge of our wallets, too. Guess what happens then ... oh yeah, a shortage of money for all of us.

    • On June 08, 2009, by i_c_fyre - After working at an emergency room, I understand that Americans AND illegals are getting free healthcare already. No one can be turned away from an ER, for inability to pay...not even the homeless on a cold night.
