I am so tired of hearing about the need for health care reform. Hello, there isn't a health care system to reform! As cold as it may sound, health care is a privilege, not a right. If you want good health insurance, then work for it.
Why should my husband work his tail off just so someone who is too lazy to get off his rump and work can have the same health care benefits that my husband works and pays for? And then when we need service, we must pay the co-pay and the deductible while the aforementioned get it for free.
I'm sorry, but we are not responsible for those who can work but don't, and why should they? After all, if they sit back and do nothing, it will be handed over to them on a silver platter, taken right out of my husband's wages that he worked for!
There are only two groups of people who should receive free or reduced-cost health care: Those are the elderly and the disabled. The rest of the folks need to work for it.
