I saw the following interview with Congressman Weiner of New York on Fox and Friends this morning:
First, I’d like to say that at least this guy is trying to make his point FOR a public option in healthcare when even the President hasn’t been able to. Plus, we have yet to see Pelosi or Reid on Fox shows make their case. They spend too much time dissing the American people to attempt to make their case.
One of Weiner’s points seemed to be that since the American people like it and are happy with it, Medicare and the like are good things and the way to go. The logic doesn’t quite work when applied in reality.
I used to like beer a good bit, and would have loved it if all the beer I wanted was supplied free of charge. But is that really the best thing for me or those who have to pay for it?
Many people love dessert foods. Would it be a good thing if all desserts were supplied free of charge? If that were the case, people would go out for dessert only and not eat anything else because dessert is free.
There is a cost to everything in this world. Science reinforces it: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
The only things this nation has ever guaranteed are life, liberty and the PURSUIT of happiness. And yet even these had a price to be paid.
The government was NEVER set up to provide for anything other than the common defense.
"Anthony Weiner has a way with B O L O G N A!"
