Sticky Post

We may have the best life care in the world however; our health care SUCKS!!! I consider my self a social liberal and a finical conservative and normally when it comes to government spending you will find me on the right of center. However; I feel strongly that health care is a moral issue and when making tough decisions like this I revert to Immanuel Kant’s categorical imperative (CI) to solve the dilemma. I cannot find any argument that supports letting people DIE, because they do not have the resources to adequate health care. Hedging a bet on someone’s life has so many things wrong with it!!

Personally, I think the best thing you can do when debating this issue is to ask this question, should heath care be a RIGHT (everyone no matter what their economic status should have access and a right to live longer and healthier) or a PRIVILEGE (it is something you buy and the more money you have determines how healthy you are and how long you live).

How insurance companies drive the debate

With almost 20 years inside the health insurance industry, Wendell Potter saw for-profit insurers hijack our health care system and put profits before patients. Now, he speaks with Bill Moyers about how those companies are standing in the way of health care reform.

Rachel Maddow: The Right Needs to Answer for What’s Happened to Conservatism

“While discussing the success of Sarah Palin’s book Mike Murphy echoes David Brooks with his statement that “the noisiest parts of kind of the conservative media machine have far less influence than the mainstream media machine that covers the Republican world thinks they do”. Murphy needs to tell that to those sour-grapes Palin voters hitting those tea bag protests across the country. I also wonder if he thinks there’s a difference between the “conservative media machine” and Fox News?”
