Summer Vacation 2009 - Demonstrating outside Congresswoman Susan Davis' Office
If you'll review the Preamble to the United States Constitution, you'll see that our government is authorized to to "promote the general welfare"... not provide the general welfare.
Among other things, we have as individuals the freedom to fail and to learn from our failures. Health care is not a right; it is an individual responsibility. For those who fall outside the existing safety nets, we need to find effective and charitable solutions...preferably local community solutions. It would be dangerous at many levels to put health care in the hands of our federal government.
P.S. Medicare is not my big focus. I was just borrowing a sign available at this TEA party.
