"Maybe health care isn't a right in our country, but it is in other countries, and it ought to be here." - 2K10

Government interference in healthcare limits our access to it; and then when we tell them that we can't afford it because of their intereference they don't have any answers as to how lower middle class people and those without access to health insurance in their jobs can afford it.

About the only people in this country who have really secure good health insurance are those with government jobs. So I guess the answer is to play the game by their rules or "if life gives you lemons make lemonade."

Yes, someone making $100,000 a year can afford health insurance but someone working in a service industry job making $8 to $10/hour will not be able to afford health insurance after paying rent, food, car insurance, repairs, etc.
