As our middle class shrinks, we are gradually becoming a two-class system, just what our forefathers and colonists fought to avoid and get away from.
Our 'boy mayor' in Pittsburgh just proposed a "privelage tax" for ALL post-highschool education in the city, making higher education and the chance of bettering one's self even further out of reach for many Americans.

[QUOTE=dnf777;522793]Agreed. The disconnect here is that there are two economies. One for the McCains, Kerrys, Kennedys, and Bushs.......then there's the economy for you and me. We are being asked (FORCED) to foot the bill for the other people's recovery. Look at how much we (we didn't, the current Administration & congress did and without reading the contracts) gave bankers just last year, now they're poised to grant themselves $23 billion in bonuses!!!!!

I agreed with your post, but wanted to add my 2 cents.
Tell me where this happens now? It is illegal in every state that I am aware of. I work Fire/EMS and no one and I mean no one can be denied emergency medical treatment due to lack of ability to pay. Yes, when someone does not pay, those costs are passed on to the rest of us as consumers, that is the risk and price I am willing to pay.
If this happens else where (medical abandonment) then the laws can be changed to avoid this situation and make it illegal not to render care.
When you throw up a false argument it makes your entire argument look foolish.
Life is full of choices and responsibilities. It is both your choice and responsibility to buy insurance. I buy my insurance and I expect you to do the same thing. If you choose not to then you will end up accepting the risk and paying the price later.
It's called personal responsibility and maybe you lefties should try it some time and stop wasting our money.
Stop trying to change the entire system to cover a very small percentage of people.
So, you want to make me buy a product simply because I live and breathe and it will make the product cheaper for you. (Sounds like a form of wealth redistribution and selfishness on your part)
This should be about reform not take over.
