Why not make it easy and just say if you are sick or have a disease it must be because of some irresponsible behavior you have and deny health care. After all it is just a tax.

It goes back to the "healthcare rationing" (death panels) by the husseincare Healthcare Reform.
A physician should first "do no harm". But this changes assisted suicide by a physician, at the request of the patient, to assisted murder of the patient at the request of the Federal government.
hussein has declared war on the elderly, and children with terminal cancer.
With a 74 year old body, I don't think of my 24 year old mind as elderly, but I better not have another heart attack!
Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

How about all the people who live near the Ford Rouge plant that get cancer? Should we cover them? They could have chosen to live elsewhere, after all.

To him we are just "useless eaters!"
Hell's Bells! I agree with FlaGator, what will happen if we don't take the flu shot? I have never had one, and don't intend to either.
Mr. ABC has one every year, and every year he gets sick from it and I keep my distance from him. This year he had a pneumonia shot as well ... and suffered a *double whammy!*This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.
