What an incredibly stupid premise.
Canada? Where people wait months for cancer treatment? USA has more MRI machines in one average city than they do in the whole country? Where people flee to the US when they need serious medical help quickly?

No, that won't do.
Thanks from Sabcat

After mowing the lawn I went out and bought a box of cereal. And browsed a couple of yard sales, bought an old cowboy movie. Feeling hungry I stopped at BK and got a whopper junior and a glass of ice water, less than two bucks.

How much would my burger cost if the govt guaranteed my burger?

Maybe less than Two bucks out of pocket, but by the time the govt beurocrats got done the real cost would be about $49.00 .
Thanks from Sabcat

Think about your own job. What if the government decided that everyone has a fundamental human right to whatever goods or services you produce?

So it's morally wrong to feed poor children?

NO IT DOESN'T. There is nothing voluntary about Christianity, except joining. You either follow the "rules" of Jesus Christ or you don't. If you choose not to....no problem. You're NOT a Christian.

I'm an American.

It costs me $10 to see my doctor. $0 to go to the E.R. and $5 for any prescription.

(Admittedly, when I turn 65 - 66? - and I'm forced to go on Medicare, it will go up)
