Government As Parent

After much thought, I've decided that the best thing is just to totally put my life into the hands of our benevolent government.  Cradle-to-grave, they are the best determiner of everything.  How should I be educated?  What is important to study?  Should I vaccinate?  Am I worth having my knee replaced?  Do I deserve cardiac or cancer drugs?

It's really silly and presumptuous of me to assume I can make sense of this on my own.  Certainly the same lights that have created the DMV, zoning boards, the post office, and other fantastic and highly successful enterprises should be making these decisions; I can't be trusted.

In addition, I think I should pay more for my rationed health care.  I mean, I only pay $1001 out of pocket every month for my family's health care.  Out of pocket; as a self-employed person, my employer does not contribute.  I've also been paying 100% of both of my employee's medical and dental coverage for 4.5 and 2 years, respectively; rather than being selfish, I should certainly step up and pay for other folk's care, too.  People I don't know.  People that have no positive impact on me or my community.

There are many people who require important things like cable, cell phone service, Internet, nice cars, eating out, cigarettes, lottery tickets, and what-not; these folks obviously can't afford to tack health care on top of these crucial quality-of-life items.  I mean, some of them don't even work!  How can they be expected to pay for their own care?  I should pay more.  Heck!  My car only has 200k miles!  I should contribute to these poor folk's new cars, too. 

Oh, I am.

My head is going to explode.

Re: and another thing, or 2
Insurance companies drop people for actually having accidents or getting sick.

This. How is it "insurance" if when you NEED it, it's not there?
