What about soldiers that volunteer to go into a war zone?

YES, they are human.

And my father who needed a quadruple bypass and with my sister who has MS deserve treatment as well.

WE ALL DESERVE TREATMENT. GET IT?

Boom! There it is! I’ve been saying it since before Obama was elected - socialized medicine is the end of your freedom. If healthcare is as critical a resources as its proponents say, why would you put it under government, which can DENY you that care, even if you have the money for it? Or should I say, deny you care, UNLESS YOU DO WHAT THEY SAY.

Do Liberals deserve medical treatment beyond abortion? They asked first.

This way of thinking is disgusting. Maybe the people who THINK this way should be denied care because they obviously are lacking a heart and have no soul at all.

JMHO

The government run “healthcare” will obviously decide which lifestyle it likes, and which lifestyle it hates.

Druggies, the anal sex crowd, aids patients from other countries, women having abortions, elderly being forced out of life, will all get favored treatment in government run “healthcare.”

Obese, elderly cancer patients will get nothing.

The National Socialist believed in the very same BS.
Amazing how someone spouts this *rap and then wonders why people wonder if they are suffering from a mental problem.

For all you guys who say "yes, treat them" I'm with you. I like this comment from the site:
Exactly. If you don't want to treat a certain segment of our population for the results of willingly , then those segments should be defined and exempted from paying INTO the system. Somehow I never hear those who don't want to treat these people out of fairness to other recipients alarmed about the fairness of making them pay but not allowing them to collect.

Then there's the whole issue of politically correct high-risk populations. Those who want to shut the gates on smokers, drinkers, fatties, and bungee jumpers never seem to want to do the same to active homosexuals, a population willingly engaging in a behavior that leads to a higher risk of an illness that’s VERY expensive to treat. Now read carefully, I’m not taking the opposite inconsistent position, that it WOULD be fair to allow homosexuals to pay in and then be denied treatment. I’m just pointing out that the proponents of restrictions are inconsistent PC hypocrites.

But really, all this paradoxical situation does is show that government shouldn't have a high degree of involvement in our lives. Every time they do, these hard choices arise. The government intrudes in our life in one area without invitation, then uses that involvement to justify further intrusion.

The Democrats, not being human beings, will deny health care to anyone that isn’t one of their species. This, unfortunately, excludes fat people, hang glider dudes and Repubican oldsters.

It is with extreme sadness that anyone who considers themselves to be free men would even contemplate this issue.

“...there is no rational way to allocate property taken by force...”

People are still going to look out for their own interests first, but introducing government into the equation will change whose interests are at stake. What socialized medicine does is substitute an economic decision made by the people directly involved into a political decision made by outsiders.

How it is that someone could think that — drawing from the same pool of ‘selfish’ people — having it so there is a monopoly that is enforced by the coercive power of government is somehow going to be more compassionate or efficient baffles me.

Do people “deserve” food? Since we are talking health, and since food is indispensable to health, how long until they reach the logical conclusion that “we” as a society surely have a right to food at taxpayers expense.

But the premise that someone has "a right to healthcare" means "a right to" seize values by force from those who produce them and give them to those who did not earn them. In such a slave society, people exist and produce values by permission, to the degree in which those in power find them useful. Whether their values are seized directly, such as in socialism, or are nominally theirs but controlled by the state, such as in the fascist state our healthcare system is in, is irrelevant.

Unfortunately, we are already here. If not in practice, it is in mindset by a near majority of citizens in one degree or another.

The fact that such a question needs to be asked is frightening. This is exactly what led Germany to the concentration camps. Once you start asking who deserves medical care, it's a short half step to asking who should be allowed to live. Yeah, yeah ....can't happen here. Don't be too sure.

Already we have Zeke Emanual, the man who wants to scrap the Hippocratic oath, advising the Kenyan warlord. We're all supposed to line up for this in the name of reduced costs, which won't happen. What about ethics? We've seen how government ethics work with the IRS. If you can't pay your taxes, SCREW YOU! We'll take your home and everything else. We're heading for the day when it will be, "Oh you're too fat SCREW YOU!!! No more blood pressure meds!".
