It is administratively efficient and fair to treat everyone the same.
So it’s fair for the fit individual who never has to see a doctor (due to better health) to pay the same as an obese individual who is always sick (due to poor health)?
The ones who have good health are lucky
Are you serious? So a person who is obese from eating crap all-day-every-day for years is unlucky? So much for personal accountability for one’s actions.
I suggest that you stop worrying about being forced to pay for someone else’s problems and consider all the benefits for yourself.
Maybe you need to start considering it. When in the hell did it become my responsibility to pay for someone else’s problems? This is typical liberal crap. Your fairness reasoning always works when you apply it to the unfortunate, but never works when you apply it to the fortunate. So fair is never truly fair. You’ll say that it’s for the betterment of all mankind. I would like the option to pay for someone else’s problems. That said, you’re now going to accuse me of being a typical conservative that hates everyone, nature, animals, etc. because I won’t willingly allow you to force me to pay for someone else’s problems. It’s about choice. (and yes, I already know that I am paying through Medicare, Medicaid, etc.)
