I am disappointed in the failure of our political leaders to find a way to insure every American equally. They have failed the basic American in every imaginable way. More taxes will surely ensure the demise of working class people.
If people in or near retirement age could get health insurance coverage in earlier years then many would retire and make more jobs available for the young.
Then gain we already have a government run health care system "Medicare." Elderly people are freezing to death in their homes because they used what little money they have to buy badly needed prescriptions, instead of paying their gas bill.
People are so busy working to care for themselves or their family, that they do not have time to be sick. They just want a pill to make it go away so they can move on. The mortgage payments do not wait.
Many of us already pay half of our wages to government. Should we all start raising pigs to pay for the taxes?
