NO one is opposed to another person or identity group. They are though opposed to unfettered illegal immigration especially to welfare state.
Many people are simply just no longer Americans first. Including nth gen citizens born on US soil.
The country is increasingly balkanzied, ghettoized, self-segregated along class, racial, ethnic, cultural, religious lines.
How can the US govt “force” a Middle Class family of four to pay $2500/month for health insurance? When will ACA be $5,000/month?
Off-shore jobs, infettered, illegal immigration, H1b, preferences for jobs and college admissions to protected groups, then scholarships and financial aid (paid for by Middle Class taxpayers!) …..
How much more pain can the Middle Class stand? Will anyone represent them?
Remember the American Revolution?
Simple questions. Health care is NOT complicated.
(1) If an American citizen experiences a serious and seriously expensive medical condition or episode, who makes the patient financially whole again? Except of course for the ACA premiums.
(2) Can the US govt. “force” a typical family of four to pay $2500/month for health insurance?
(3) When will ACA be $5,000/month for that family?
(1) over-population is a problem, (2) competition for scarce resources, (3) many immigrants, legal and illegal, belong to “protected” groups in the US and therefore receive preferences for jobs, college admissions and more, (4) citizens are penalized again when their taxes go to support the very people receiving the benefits and preferences
First a citizen could lose a job or a seat in college and THEN be forced to pay for the winner through taxes.
Unless all of these issues are rationalized and explained legally, economically and ethically, division is just aggravated.
