Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
There's an ironic joke they tell in Indian country that you come across when reading NA authors, about a bunch of NDN crawdads that have been caught and dropped in a bucket. Each time one gets near the top and almost escapes, one of the others pulls it back down into the bucket.
That's kind of what is going on with this health care argument. So many people have such wacko ideas about those who don't have coverage and they feel like they will personally be pulling the weight for the undeserving poor. They'd pull the whole system apart to protect their sense of entitlement, not realizing how such a repair will improve conditions for literally millions of people.
