Because there are medications out there that occasionally kill you even if you use them exactly as prescribed and they are prescribed exactly as recommended and approved. We use them because they don't kill that often. Even Ibuprofen can very rarely cause a life threatening reaction with lasting consequences.

I have heard of people injured by a chainsaw when they hit something embedded in a tree.

You missed what I was saying. The Rs have characterized it is some kind of plague to be eradicated, not me. Personally, I consider it to be necessary insurance reform but far short of what we need to reform health care in the U.S.

I just find it hysterical that after 6 years of moaning about Obamacare the best they could come up with was a cheap knock-off of Obamacare and they couldn't get it passed even while controlling both houses and the Oval office.
