These are the same people who oppose health care insurance for all. How they live with themselves is beyond me.
Uhhh.... With Obamacare, we do have health insurance for all. In fact, if you make up to $92k/yr, the government will pick up some or all of the tab. And under every healthcare plan, you are guaranteed 100% coverage for preventive care. All you have to do is get yourself to a clinic for a flu shot. The government will even pick up the tab for your taxi ride. But you are right - there will still be people dying from the flu, because the government can't use everyone's money to make people accountable.
