That is called solidarity.
What do you suggest instead? Just let these addicts rot in hell? Or maybe just give them even less money?
This healthcare thingy would help these poor piss-soaked grandparents to afford new glasses, diapers(....) and whatnot.
Same thing goes for the four month old kid. The parents of these kids could easily pay for some vaccines (oh I said the bad V-word that sadly a lot of americans still don't like) etc.
You pay this healtcare tax to help these people and they are doing the same thing for you.
Not a bad concept IMO.
Well the issue is there drug addicts are not being taxed, and honesty if your OD'ing on coke, that's your issue not mine. If you go to the hospital you should either be having your wages garnished
And while it does help those who need it, there is still the issue of getting them to the health care. If johnny's high on coke, who else is around to get Grandma and little Suizy to the hospital
Still there are those that need help and that get the help, just wish the States had a better regulation of said help. A perfect example is the "home less sheleters" we have here in my own home town. They are privately owned and those who live in them are "homeless" the requirement for this free housing is
1) they work, your wages are garnished and you work to maintain the property
2) your room is inspected and laws are set in palce
They are well taken care of their and each member is held responsible. You break the rules, and yea you get to rot in the streets. The rules are not hard, you do what you can, Take care of the house your living in for free and you get to stay
and I'm talking about the children of these drug addicts, the parents are too strung out to get vaccienes, and it's these drug addicts who are creating such a large strain on our the health care [at least where I live] that we need the government to step in and tax us. So the issue goes back to these addicts, they won't care for them selvs, their parents or their off spring
what the need is rehabilitation, and Tom Yum I will say this... I've seen some documentaries about Prisons over there... and I like what I saw. You saw clean cells, gardens and prisoners doing hard labor to maintain what appeared to be a very lovely and well kept prison facility, yea it was still all stone with crappy beds. I would be more inclined to support this tax, if our country actually offered a half decent rehabilitation program like what you appear to have over there, the issue is we are talking care of these people, or rather enabling them to countinue to fester in their addicitions, there are a few programs stepping up to actually help these people... but they usually shut down due to lack of well funding :/
ahh thanks, I saw EP and though Ep's like music
