One thing I had wondered:
A large portion of the conservative base are the religious. How can these people support a party that opposes a bill that benefits the wellness of all? You would think that churches would support such a system that can be viewed as moral.
Considering the estimated costs of health care, maybe we should establish a federal tax on church real estate to help the sick, and aid these churches, whichever church they may be, perform God's work. I am not advocating any particular religion, or God himself, but I would think that someone who claims to live for God would be for this reform, or at least any reform, and not for preventing any true progress being made, by either side of the political spectrum.
I had asked someone who is very religious, who believes dinosaurs roamed the earth with man, this question, and they had basically stated that it was fiscally irresponsible to waste money on the uninsured.
