Re: “Spreading Density

OK I have a puzzel for you to figure out. I am employed as a sales consultant at a large printer company in the Treasure Valley. I am a Temporary worker for a company out side the state of Idaho and do not have any benefits. I have Type 2 diabetes, for which I cannot afford medical assistance. I have an appointment with a local insurance agent to see about purchasing privately funded insurance. I am also a full time student striving to get a degree and a teaching certificate. My wife works for a small local business. How can I stimulate the economy if my spending capital goes to Medical insurance? And looking down the road, am I a socialist commy bastard if I am employed to be a teacher and take the health care option offered thru my employer, the government? What of a family member that owns his own small business and cannot get health Insurance due to MS? Do we take his money and services as a business owner and throw him out into the street when he cannot care for himself due to his disease? If it is his families responsibility to care for him how will their spending capital be reduced due to having to care for him, further eroding the families ability to expand the economy. These are 2 examples that I am sure can be multiplied across the country. Where do we draw the line?
