I like what you are saying but I have to add my two cents on the health care angle. I do believe everyone is entitled to health care. If people cannot afford health care, they use emergency rooms to act as their primary doctor, they do not pay the bill and we end up paying for it anyway via county/state taxes. The health care in this country is absurd. I have been in the health care industry a long time. It has become over the top expensive and I have personally seen insurance companies refuse to pay for procedures or medications that several doctors suggest the patient have. I do not like the idea that someone in an office somewhere can dictate what my own doctor says I need. I don't have a solution but free market has not been working to well, and I know something needs to be done
I agree with the lawsuits definately. I also agree with the illegal issue. If you are illegal, you should be shipped back to your country of origin and apply to become a citizen the correct way. That said, what does General welfare of the people mean? The US is a very different place than when it was written and sad to say, you are paying their bills. When county hospitals cannot collect money, taxes in the county rise and the citizen has to foot the bill. I work with alot of senior citizens and it makes me angry when they tell me that they are not taking their blood pressure pill because they cannot afford the copay. These are people that have worked all their life and now are stuck with having to make these kind of decisions.
