Healthcare Whiners

There was a time in history, during the industrial revolution, that employers actually gave a damn about their employees. Employers and employees had a quality beneficial for each other known loyalty. But, modern greed did away with that. If you look at the Christmas Carol that story showed something. Scrooge would have been the old version of Gordon Gecko in the movie, Wall Street, who believed that "...greed is good...", but ask yourself, what did Scrooge learn at the end of the story. 
His comment was that Bob Cratchit needed to start letting Scrooge, his employer, help take care of Bob's family. People used to actually feel like that. That story was about the centermost important problem in American politics right now. Accusing poor people who are sick or disabled of being moochers is twisted and ridiculous and shows no kind of human compassion or sense of responsibility as a human being. This is the very antipathy of the supposed "holy spirit" that Conservative Christians go on and on about. It's not that I believe in the bible but that I have read it and I turned from the Christian religion because it's followers aren't aware of what it says and that is the fault of the Christian religions, not the bible.
