What is the Paul Ryan argument...

... about medical costs upwards of a million dollars, which is totally possible in this era of high tech medicine, when he pushes medical savings accounts? Are they supposed to be in addition to insurance for small things (in which case it doesn't address the ACA question at all), or just.... "save a million dollars?"

This is not a rhetorical question. I want to know what they enemy's position is.

Thanks

1. He recently put forth the Freedom argument.

My response - If you love freedom so much then how about legalizing drugs? And why stop there? 100 percent freedom means no laws, no government. Do you want to live in a country like that?

3. The taste of liberty is far sweeter than chemotherapy.

Wouldn't you agree, Comrade? Or do you want Jones back?

4. It's quite simple.

If you can't afford to pay for your healthcare, then you deserve to die. They won't come right out and say it, but that is exactly Paul Ryan's (and the Republicans') position.

5. Health savings accounts are used in addition to insurance.

They are not meant to be used instead of insurance. In fact, I don't think you can open an HSA without a qualifying insurance policy.
