That is so s***.
I see where you are coming from but Americans need handouts. 43 million Americans are on food stamps (14%) and there are nowhere near enough jobs to go around. A major job fair got cancelled recently in America because there are no jobs. Even when you were prospering there wasn't enough jobs for every American to earn enough money to live and get health care. There needs to be some handouts, yes they can get abused but businesses and institutions also abuse their power to exploit and take advantage of others as well. The dollar is declining and things will get worse, it may not be ideal but people will be dependent on the state.
From what I can gather the medi-care bill did go against the American value of liberty although if the aim was to give medical care to those who would not be able to get it and save lives then it is not a great evil. Maybe a compromise just needs to be reached somewhere, maybe the medi care bill should have gone on a countrywide referendum rather than in house.
