Aww. I think Victus is just engaging hyperbole, as am I, to a degree, in our long-running, um, debates. Personally, I don't mind that tactic amongst friends.

No, because that's not what I'm saying. What I am saying is that ill people should be able to afford medical treatment. Period. I'm not copping out on that.

Define poor minority. Is it your claim that middle class folks can afford, say, $100k in medical bill and still pay the mortgage or the rent? If they can't, well, I guess that might make them poor....

Which party was this?


This is a new complaint?


I don't recall any period in U.S. history where either party ever demonstrated a predilection toward shrinking government. When was it not growing?
