For the 33rd fuckin’ time…I just don’t get (well, I do, yet I don’t) why Republicans and DINOs want to *not* help our most at-risk citizens get the health care they deserve.
I believe that health card should be a human right. It provides most of us with more useful years to live and provides a basic stability upon which we can innovate and take a few risks that might normally involve the total loss of health care if those risks go sour. Who doesn’t want innovation? Who doesn’t want all of those unhealthy individuals to get the proper treatments *so that they can fully participate in society and contribute more to the economy*?
Republicans and their uber-wealthy Randian backers don’t. Damn those who don’t even have bootstraps to pull themselves up with! Survival of the fittest, and all that bullshit. BTW, natural selection refers to entire species, not individuals. We stand or fall as a species, and standing requires cooperation and helping the less fortunate, “weaker” members of our species.
