  • Those who don't understand probably are broke themselves in a lot of cases. What the government does is what they do in their everyday life so it's not something scary and unknown. OR it could be they're the ones who are benefiting from the companies that are getting a lot of the money so, the country going broke means more money in their pockets. Either way it is messed up to feel that having little to no money means spending a ton of money is going to fix the issue. BUDGETING what we have would be the wisest thing to do.

  • How many ppl have posted to this forum stating they want UHC only?

    How many are for reform of our current sytem? Does being for reform of a broken system automatically make you a socialist verging on living in the gutter?

    Sorry to burst your bubble ladies, neither poor nor struggling here. My houses (yes, I own more than 1 ) are in order, and my kids are independent college and grad school students.

    If caring about ppl who may not have the exact advantages that I have makes be a villian (and what other adjectives) you'd love to inject, so be it.

    TN- give it up on ppl only wanting what they want......

  • I am thinking it's the BROKE part.

     I mean, when you are broke, don't you just whip out a credit card? Duh *sarcasm*.
