you go without auto insurance and wreck your car...no one 'provides' for you

you go without homeowners insurance and a chimney fire burns your house down....no one 'provides' a new house for you.

you go without medical insurance...why should everyone else pony up for you?

and if you spend all your money on other things, and don't stock up the pantry, you really expect that folks are going to bail you out with food week after week as you blow your income on lottery tickets or alcohol or drugs or gambling?....or if you are too lazy to get a job and work?

Heck, we provide temporary shelter and food for a short time for those without, but we don't buy them new cars or new houses if they screw up and don't have insurance.

If you think folks are entitled to hundreds of thousands or millions of bucks of medical treatment because 'they want it', we really disagree on that.....
