Two things you never want to see manufactured. Sausage, and Legislation.
Lawmakers get paid to apply an angle to anything to get legislation that benefits them and screws everyone else through all the time. That is their role. You can attack the Affordable Care Act all day long, but how much has the public been lied to over the Invasion of Iraq, The PATRIOT Act, and so many many more pieces of legislation over the years.
Lincoln's most recent film exposed deception back in the Civil War to free the slaves.
Social Security was built around the idea that the average life span was 64 years old, so if you happen to be one of the lucky few that make it that far, congratulations, you earned a check. For those who passed away before then, too bad, so sad.
Insurance is built around the same principle by default. The key problem with Insurance is that the younger generation didn't have enough money to keep the Insurance companies afloat and because many younger people such as myself see insurance as not all that important, we would skip on that until it was needed. Fortunately I managed to gain employment at a company that will provide coverage before I needed any serious surgery.
