Regarding the article Coverage proposals skip undocumented workers:
What are we to do? Nothing is free, so who will pay? Why dont we all just drop our coverage and let someone else pick up the tab. The mentality in this country, be it the presidents budget, bailouts, etc., is that the money will be there, just print more of it. No regard or thought as to where the money comes from. It comes from the workers of this country, and they can only sustain so much. Its simple. The government takes in X amount of dollars each year, and spends X amount each year. The problem is, we spend more than we take in, so what do we do? We either cut spending, or increase the amount taken in, regardless of what it is spent for. Now, let's be realistic here. If you or I ran our family this way, would we get away with it? If so, how long?
