Subject: RE: BS: Nationalized Healthcare, good? bad?
By the way, a lot of our taxes already do go to private companies rather than to the government. Since so many of the services our government uses come from private contractors, some of my tax dollars, for instance, are going to the company formerly known as Blackwater, and these people are known murderers. And my tax dollars are going to KBR, a private company, who are responsible for the electrocution of several of our service members in Iraq. I was never given any choice about whether or not my tax dollars would go to them. I am forced to pay for their services whether I want to or not.
