Much has been made of the Supreme Court ruling on healthcare last Thursday, and for good reason. The ruling was historic not only in it’s precedent-setting but also in it’s confounding application. The media world exploded with analysts and experts hypothesizing what the obtuse SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) decision will mean for every aspect of American life into the future.

The Blaze was there on the steps of the court when the ruling came down. While we will leave the hyperbole to the pundits, we did have one question that needed answering:

“What does the Left really want out of healthcare?”
So we followed up with the multitude of progressive protesters that showed up that morning on the steps of the court. As they marched in a circle with custom signs we asked them:

“Why do you support Obamacare?”

“Do you think healthcare should be free?”

    Then they need to understand that the concept of "free" does not exist.

    Socialism is an unsustainable form of government/economy (and the two ARE inexorably intertwined). Eventually it will eat itself because those who produce will have no incentive to continue to do so.

    I signed away my rights and Liberties on the dotted line know as a contract to join the US armed forces. To tell the truth its not bad at all...I get taken care well, healthcare is wonderful (my provider is tri-care, which is military/government ran healthcare). I get sick, they patch me up fine. I called in for an infection, and the next day in the morning I was receiving treatment. I dont see what all the uproar is about...

    My wife has tri-care. It is good insurance. One problem though. Locally, no doctors will take it because they cannot get their money back from the government. We have it, but almost never get to use it.

    My wife is always REALLY sick. The Army took 30% of one lung. Closest base is over 100 miles from here.

    I am sorry to hear that, but thank her for her service and I salute her...is she guard or reserve, because 100 miles from the nearest base is WAY too far for active duty.
  • cowboy Janoy D... 2012/07/06 09:58:46
    cowboy
    Not active. Medicaly retired. Shreveport is the closest base. Tri-care works great there. But here locally, nobody wants to accept it in their offices.

    And that part SUCKS. I went to get prescription filled out at the local walgreens, they told me they no longer accept tricare, I was WTF, and went to walmart (down the street) to get them filled. Other than the spotty service, tricare is pretty cheap and good. May I ask, what to 30% of your wife's lung? was it illness or cancer?

    Basic training. She had an asthma attack during the gas chamber part. The military docs squirted her lungs full of an asthma medicine, that she turned out to be allergic to. It scarred her lungs immediately, and they had to perform an emmergency surgery. There was no way they could have known she would have an allergic reaction. The medicine was new and is used all over the world now. Anyway, that pretty much ended her military career. I get to be on Tri-care because of being married to her. It is good insurance if you live in the larger cities. They have the best presciption plan I know of.

    I HATED the gas chamber when I went through basic training. But agreed, works well in big cities

    These people in this video are truly clueless and are living proof of decades of liberal indoctrination in public schools(dumb-ass English kids too). I should know, I teach in a public high school and the liberal bias is so obvious it is staggering.
    They were never taught about the Wickard v. Filburn case in government class.

    A. We are not Europe

    B. We will never be Europe

    C. Nothing is Free in Europe

    D. If you try and make us Europe, you are going to have a bloody fight on your Hands.

    Socialism is alrady demon possessed. I cannot help it.
    Just understand that Free Stuff or free services is never free. Some one always pays for it. and when the government has it's share the price is usually three or four times the original price plus your freedom. When you kook to government to provide safety through more intense laws that encroach on the Constitution . And you choose Safety over your personel Liberty You Deserve neither and will have nothing but oppression in the end. Slavery is not attractiv
    Birth control? My happy red ass. Under the Dictatorship of those who follow Obummer They will tell you when to get pregnant ofr even if you are ever to be allowed a pregnancy. Being a White Girl I rather doubt that will happen since several of Oba,a's friends already talk about eliminating 90 % of Whote Folks because there are too many Whots in the countrye, but it is what you are to the government by that time

    Ugh, in reality the government should not pay for birth control or welfare.

    The biggest argument used by supporters of birth control is that it's better than paying for a child's 'education, healthcare, etc.'

    However, if we weren't being compelled to pay for poor children's health and education, then that argument would make no sense.

    End all entitlements - they just perpetuate a vicious cycle of poverty and dependency.
