Now that's the whole point isn't it?

Response to If someone is overweight and has a heart condition why should I pay for it?


and that's what scares me. This country is getting to the point that nobody thinks they are responsible for anything. I don't think you should have to pay for the fat guy that has a heart condition but I'll bet you he does. It's called personal responsibility. We have lost it as a country. I'm all for helping those that need it but when kids are taught that nothing is their fault, guess what, they become adults that think that way and then we get to the place that we're rapidly approaching.
Once we start paying for one thing it eventually gets to the point where we're paying for everything.
I guess for now we're fortunate enough that we have enough people in this country that work and make enough that can cover the rest.
Now for the scary part, what happens when that's no longer the case? Then who pays? think I'm full of crap? Just look to Europe.
Ok, that's my fear. Now instead of calling me an idiot, tell me what you think the answer is, and mark my words, there better be one or we're all in trouble.
