The example of lazy people does not refute the need for health care for all. There are many people working in jobs that do not provide benefits and pay low wages, how are these people supposed to purchase health care? So unless you feel people who work at jobs that do not provide medical insurance benefits are lazy, then the example cited really is beside the point. It should be clear as day that something fairly substantial should be done about health care in this country. Costs are spiraling out of control, which is the prime reason the number of uninsured keeps increasing. Even if some people think universal health care is a bad idea because it will cover "lazy" people, how can they not at least ensure all children are covered since presumably even the most right-wing nuts can't blame kids for their life situation? Just because I have health insurance through my employer doesn't make me think that this should not be a birthright of all Americans. Universal health care for all Americans is indeed possible but I guess our country has other priorities like funding useless projects like missile defense, and doling out billions to corporate interests.
