Socialized Medicine – the Moochers Point of View

In today’s (13May09) Detroit News we find the following letter:
Nationalized health care
I can remember my father saying to me as a kid, back in 1963, that it’s a shame that the United States, the richest country in the world, doesn’t have national health care. Here we are, 46 years later, and there is still nothing in place. Thanks to our newly elected president, children now have health care coverage. We need to move forward with national health care because if it’s a burden on our big corporations here in the U.S., then it’s definitely a burden on all the mom-and-pop businesses.

David Edgar, Financial Secretary,
United Auto Workers Local 869

You know, Mr. Edgar, if you really felt strongly about this issue, you and your Union would raise the funds or cut your demands on the businesses necessary to make it happen.  However, you and the rest of the moochers like you (see Ayn Rand’s "Atlas Shrugged" for a definition) have decided it’s not important enough to spend you OWN money to make this happen.  You want the Government to FORCE EVERYONE ELSE to spend THEIR money so YOUR goal may be achieved, with little or no cost to you.

When it comes to acquiring virtue by spending money, you are all in favor of spending other people’s money but heaven help anyone that suggests you spend your own.

Why don’t you just use a mask and a gun and go rob your neighbors, instead of using the Government to do it?  At least that way you’d be intellectually honest about your intent and method.
