happyfew, could you please provide a link detailing the dates, locations and specific amount(s) "spilled" that you've referred to here?
Clara, your abhorrence is as misplaced as your faux-indignation.
Clara, you suggest because germs exist we should have gov't mandated/imposed universal healthcare, and that a "few eggs" is a reasonable price to pay as a subsequent result of enforcement--you could make one he!!uva omlette with the millions already broken and scrambled!
A majority of Americans however, think this is an extreme federal overeach (why is the gov't even involved in health-care, and what gives them the right to force citizens to purchase a private commodity?), and if you subscribe to the idea of cradle-to-grave entitlements, please Google "Life of Julia" for an advanced primer on the concept; it sounds like you're exactly the demographic the administration is trying to reach.
"we don't hear about them, and most times the EPA doesn't either"
Then how do YOU know when/where they occur, happyfew?
"The reason for public health laws in the early 20th century" Yes, over 100 years ago there was a dire need for improved medical services, and better access to them, but in contemporary society, we have options unheard of then.
Clara, you sound like a staunch advocate of the ACA, please tell us why it's such a boon to the citizenry, and explain its numerous exemptions, the botched roll-out and millions of subsequent policy cancellations.
"We Canadians want our people to be healthy and strong and smart. We have no problems with our taxes paying for that. We can go to any doctor that we want to and it doesn't cost us a dime"
Wow, Ms. Hill, I didn't realize that Canada is such a utopian society that health care is absolutely free!
Since you seem to believe that it magically appears with no funding, please relocate there and enjoy that benefit, and all the complimentary back bacon and Molson you can digest.
I'm embarrassed as well; that a citizen of this country would buy into such nonsense, and then come here to describe the exchange.
Sally Alberts asks, "Can we not bring some sanity into this situation?" Yes we can, as soon as legislators and folks like you stop proposing feel-good/do nothing legislation.
Since you consider yourself intelligent--judging by your past op/eds, I'm not convinced--, just what do you suggest would be effective measures to implement and enforce?
And yet the G actually has a vibrant and dynamic on-line forum, with submissions from all over the political spectrum, while you hang out here--alone and anonymous--reduced to name-calling and speculation.
