Do you have kids? Do you think I enjoy paying for their education? I do....because I understand the importance of educating and investing in our future.
Yes i do have kids...and yes I am putting away money to invest in their future.
The problem is that the people who want universal Healthcare because it means they get something for free fail to understand that someone is in fact paying for it....just not them. Their stance that others can afford to pay and therefore should pay for them is absurd.
I am all for helping someone who is working to help themselves. Problem is there are WAY too many people looking to "work" the system.
Point in fact...I was watching TV yesterday morning in the waiting room of a Ballantyne based automotive repair shop (getting new tires on car). An infomercial came on that was all about how there is grant money, bailout money, etc.. for people to receive....and the whole bit was about how they did not have to pay it back.
Person after person gave testimonials how they got "free money" for house downpayments, renovations, starting a new business, etc.... Everyone of them kept talking about how it was free...and they did not have to pay for it.
Fact is that every dollar these freeloaders get come on the backs of others who are paying into the system.
