In the last 10 years I have had 2 complicated pregnancies, multiple hospital stays,5 surgeries, cancer and chemo. My husband is a Baptist Pastor in a small, rural and poor community. We are not materialistic. My van is 12 years old with 205,000 miles on it and I am content to drive it till it dies. I hate insurance. It costs us out of our own pockets over $1200 a month, that being said, without it I'd either be dead or we would be in debt more than the $5K interest free to the local hospital. It is not a pretty site. IMO if everyone got rid of insurance we might have a fighting chance. That way costs would not be padded as if a person is not paying for them.
I am helping an Amish couple in their late 70's. She has cancer so I drive her to town for treatment. He still works. They wonder if they will ever be able to pay their medical debt while they are living. They don't have insurance and live like it is the olden times.
OK, so I am looking at S. 1326: A bill to implement the President’s request to increase the statutory limit on the public debt. It looks like that bill, sponsored by Rand, is the Senate compliment to the House bill H.R. 2663, The America Pays Its Bills Act of 2011 http://www.washingtonwatch.com/bills/show/112_HR_2663.html.
That link says it does not increase the tax payer’s debt. I am not sure how all of that works. How does on raise the statutory debt and not increase debt to the tax payer?
You said: “He's attempting to rewrite it so Americans won't lose their right to a trial but the Constitution was written for all "men". It's not a cherry-pick document.”
I read this “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
And the bill of rights refers to “the People” I am assuming that is the same “we the people” group. But am I wrong? Who is “we the people?” Is it not just citizens?
Yes, I am inquisitive, that is the way I learn. Thank you for your time. If you have any words to offer, at your convenience, they are appreciated.
