Old people get medicare.Originally posted by: agentbad
I am not looking for some socialist utopia or hippie commune. Health care should be a right to any tax payer in this country. The poor already get free health care under the current system if that's what you have a problem with which is paid for by taxes. Now they don't get the best care because of that but they do get health care. Will you wait until you start getting old and need that first bypass that you will reconsider? What if you get cancer and have to spend your whole life savings to pay the insurance premiums since your job fired you because you can't come to work? I see and hear these arguments all the time at work and it saddens me.
