    … the one making the POSITIVE claim…

    I would also add it needs to be testable.

    This is a great argument, until of course it gets applied to you. No matter who you are or what you do someone will think you are making a stupid decision, and eventually some of the people thinking you make bad decisions will be right. We are broadly irrational and therefore usually make bad decisions, the funny thing is we don’t often know this until years later. I don’t know what, but you regularly do things which are bad for your health, and don’t even know it. NO INSURANCE FOR YOU!

    Healthcare isn’t a “right.” Providing healthcare should be a choice. If healthcare was a “right,” then I could show up at a doctors house and sue him for not treating me. I believe in liberty, where individuals are allowed to do as they choose as long as they don’t violate anyone else’s liberty. I say implement a free market system on the federal level and let the states do as they choose.

    We shouldn’t pay for people who make stupid decisions. For example, people who eat to much and people who smoke should be held accountable for making the wrong choices. So if the insurance company denies you that was your own fault.

    Actually, in the US, the top schools are public schools.

    You don’t need to be a billionaire or millionaire to be successful. You said it again, “lucky.” Thomas Peterffy, look him up. Luck has little to do with his story. Improving the economics of the country helps people make their own way. Giving hand outs helps a few people for a short time, then makes them dependent on that assistance. Giving fish vice teaching a man to fish.

    CA, OK, VA, WI average nurse salaries average between $63,000 to $75,000. The LOWEST 10% made roughly $52,000.

    Yeah right, there are tons of stories about immigrants who to a country with nothing and became rich. But that’s the minority, most people aren’t this lucky. If everyone who had work ethics and were devoted to improving their lives would get rich, the whole world would be filled with billionaires. Reality isn’t a fairy tale, it’s not that simple. Look at nurses for example: they can work their asses off for 40 something years and still get a near minimum wage paycheck.

    The burden of proof is on the one making the claims. It is not my job to provide evidence to the contrary of every ridiculous conspiracy theory I hear. This is how the scientific community conducts itself, and that’s because it makes the most sense. It has nothing to do with laziness.

    Youtube won’t let me link anything. Obama was asked about a hypothetical situation of an elderly patient getting a heart transplant. He admitted that probably wouldn’t be covered. “Death panels” are the buzz word, but “bean counting” is more proper. Avoid the rhetoric, do some research, and make a proper counter argument. “Link or it didn’t happen” is a false logic.

    Too lazy to use Google? I refuse to give a link to 2moro’s sunrise… does that mean it won’t happen? Is there a link to my pay stub? “Do you have a job, sir?” If you do then compare your pay stub from last year to one of this year… and you will see you are paying more in taxes. As far as death panels I’ll try to find a link to a freaking NPR(not conservative radio) piece I heard 2 weeks ago. Wish me luck… or you can do your own research like most Libertarians do.

    I know plenty of tax payers who slack off and plenty more people from low-income families that have to work multiple jobs and live without luxury to afford food and rent. No offence, but you are an idiot.

    by that logic paying taxes on schools, roads and anything else is propping up slackers and redistributing wealth. Ensuring that every citizen has access to necessary medication and procedures, seems more egalitarian and democratic than denying access based on social/ economic status.

    Welcome to real life. I suggest you read from a variety of sources and almost NOTHING in the media. Take everything anyone tells you with a grain of salt unless they can back it up with fact. Fact is not what ThinkProgress(dot)org thinks either.
