We are pure idiots to keep the system we have now.

Where is the money going to come from?
Answer, it's already there and then some. Period, End of story. No more argument.

Until you can come up with a better argument than money, then shut the heck up.

Until you can come up with a better story than we have better health care, shut the heck up.

Why even argue? You so called fiscally conservative right tighty types are arguing to keep a system that costs twice as much as it needs too.

I. Just. Don't. Get. It.
