You brought it up.

Also, just because it's enshrined in "law", doesn't make it right. Slavery, blacks being 3/5 of a person, women (and blacks) not having a vote were all "law" at one time, but since they conflicted with "Natural Law", they were never "right". And forcing a person to pay for things which they find morally repugnant is slavery.

Now that we are out of the scientific research "Dark Ages" of the last 8 years, I expect many great & cost savings discoveries in the health field.
Oh, so all those billions we pumped into NASA gave me my $1200 HD TV? Sony, JVC and LG Corp had nothing to do with it? Seems to me that Richard Branson reached space a lot cheaper than NASA ever did.

But......who wouldn't want affordable health care??
My health care is affordable. Why do I have to pay for yours? Or anyone elses? Why not let the market work? The doctor in New York proved he could do it. Are you saying the government knows better how to run his business than he does?
Dr. Knope, the author of “Concierge Medicine: A New System to Get the Best Healthcare,” has this kind of practice in Tucson. His patients sign a contract agreeing to pay $6,000 a year for individuals and $10,000 a year for couples. The fee covers office visits, physical exams and phone consultations, and Dr. Knope will meet patients in the emergency room, see them in the hospital and occasionally make house calls.
Seems like these doctors can make it work too. And it's cheaper than what I pay now. How many of those government doctors do you think will make house calls?
Face it Devil, the free market(a truly free market) ALWAYS
does better than the government.
