The weekly take home pay for a burger flipper is 300 bucks, and that's before taxes. Excellent health care plan? Is it free?
There's a lot of things in the federal budget I'd rather not pay for. I'd like a refund for the Iraq War for starters. Better yet, I'd like a refund for the corporate welfare McDonald's gets to promote chicken nuggets in foreign countries (yes, it's true).
But none of this has anything to do with capitalism. It has to do with democracy. The People are the sovereigns. Not an idiotic Randian philosophy that promotes sadism and psychopathy. If the People want the federal government to handle health care, then it is their right as the sovereigns to have it. If you don't like that part of the social contract, Mari, you're free to leave.
