quote: It's not society's job to pay for his treatment - that's your family's job and responsibility. Short of that, turn to charity.

quote: No.Period. And anyone who tries to change this I will oppose. This is basic human decency. This kind of thinking is a war against the people who built this country. My father worked in construction his whole life because he wanted to be one of those people you talk about as making America great. Unfortunately that kind of work has a great toll, especially physically. Combined with unlucky genetics, he is in a situation that would cost me more than a hundred grand a year. That burden is too great for me, even at my income level, and it is certainly nothing he could have ever prepared for.
quote: Society can afford to take care of situations like this. Otherwise there is no point to a society at all.
quote: I would say that I am sorry that the country is not going in the direction you would prefer, but I'm really not. The nation you would like would cripple me financially and penalize people like my father who built the things you get to enjoy every day.
