mad matt's Sig:At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may god have mercy on your sole.

Taxes are a tough animal to tackle. High taxes have been the catalyst for upheaval throughout history, at the same time, tax too little, and everyone bitches that the poor are not being taken care of.

No matter what you do, when you have people who work paying for things for people who do not, there will animosity, and rightfully so.

I wouldn't say that movie is true. It's based on real concerns but I suspect that the plot was driven by dramatic concerns more than truth.

I don't know that a child has ever been refused a heart transplant, or something such as that, by an HMO. Although there have been allegation as to that. My example in my first post was just off the top of my head and intended to illustrate the extreme end of the consequences of our health care system albeit with a bit of hyperbole.

There is another film on Showtime, I think, that was released around the same time as John Q called "Damaged Care". I've never seen it but there might be something similar in it.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
