Health Care Nuttiness
I got into a fight with someone on Facebook about health care reform (actually, this has happened multiple times recently). I find that most people I find myself arguing with end up spewing crap about “big government,” which I just cannot take seriously. The guy I was arguing with this time was doing this, but he also had a few facts in his bag of tricks–as someone presently in the health care industry, he wasn’t completely ignorant.
His position was that the quality of our health care would go down with the proposed changes. By contrast, I took the position that even if the quality of health care for some in the US would decrease with the changes–something of which I am not entirely convinced, but I’ll admit it is entirely possible–I was nevertheless willing to support the changes in order to help the Americans who are completely uninsured.
His response? Apparently I am filled with “envy and hate.” I’d love to see anyone explain that one!
