Health Care For Everyone....Courtesy of Arnold Schwarzenegger

You really gotta hand it to Arnold. He hasn't even been sworn into his new term yet and already he is waxing poetic about giving/mandating health care to/for every Californian. Isn't that special. How do you think he's going to get that done? There's no other way to except to raise taxes like he specifically promised not to do. SUCKERS! All you fellow Republicans that voted for him....how does that taste? It's not like we don't already have a magnet for illegal aliens here in California. Let's just add more fuel to the fire. Hell, this may attract riff raff from all over the country. Nothing like giving away free stuff to attract the moocher class.

    Sounds like Hillarycare to me.

    But seriously, shouldn't excellent healthcare be a right for all Americans.

    No it shouldn't. With your logic why stop at healthcare. Let's give everyone a mansion. Let's mandate $100/hour minimum wage. Let's mandate happiness & utopia for everyone. Seriously Dan, when does it stop for you guys. How do you decide what's best for everyone. I know your bleeding heart wants to help as many as possible, but it's not possible without sacrificing our freedoms and our economy. I don't want to wait three months if I need bypass surgery or a kidney transplant. If you like that idea then move to Canada or England where healthcare is rationed.

    I want to give mandatory health care for everyone so that the nanny watching my kids never gets sick. When she's not there, Maria and I have to spend more time with them and that gets boring quickly. Being with Maria gets boring pretty fast too.

    Medical bills are the cause of half of personal bankruptcies.

    That in itself warrants a review of how health care services are delivered in this country.

    No one (including you Allan) is immune from a catastophic illness that drains the bank accounts and leaves financial ruin in its wake.

    I'm responsible Heywood and have plenty of health insurance. Services are delivered just fine right now. You want to really screw it up....get the government involved.

    That's great Allan. I'm really happy for you. Others aren't quite as fortunate.

    But here is what cracks me up. A couple of months ago you were crowing about how Arnold was going to kick Angelides' butt and weren't Dems sorry?

    Soooo....your GOP candidate got elected and your still angry. I'm thinking you won't be happy ever.

    Arnold has done a magnificent of having two very distinct groups dislike him. The far left and the far right (such as yourself). For us in the middle it means he is doing a pretty good job.

    I didn't vote for Arnold Heywood. I voted for Art Olivier.

    It's not a matter of me being fortunate Heywood. I'm responsible. I work hard to be able to live in Irvine and have a decent quality of life although lately that has been diminishing thanks to overcrowing here and traffic. Life is a series of choices people make. If you choose to have a job that doesn't include health care, doesn't pay very much, & have too many kids to pay for, etc....that is a problem people bring on themselves. Don't go crying & begging to the politicians expecting them to bail your ass out.

    Should have read the Irvine master plan; the growth here is planned and managed and your claims about traffic and overcrowding just seem silly. But hey, there is always New Hampshire or Montana.

    We have the world's best healthcare and few people can afford it. Just because you have health insurance doesn't mean your not a bad accident away from bankruptcy.

    Healthcare should be a right; I'm sorry you don't see it that way

    Dan's absolutely right Allan. The stories of insurance companies walking away from patients with catastrophic illnesses are legion in number. And guess who gets left holding the bag?

    Count your lucky stars you haven't been one and will hopefully never be one.
