On MSNBC's Morning Joe today, Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) stumped Joe Scarborough (R-Scarborough Country) speechless with a single question: Why do we even have a privately funded health care system?

Take a look:

If the public option gets scrapped when this whole thing is said and done, I think this will be the first time I'll be really upset with the administration's actions. I've been without health insurance for a good many years, and I thought when this whole idea started that that would be the way I would be able to afford it finally. If not, I guess I'll just continue to hope I don't get sick...

Hey emzmcqee,

May I ask roughly how old are you, and how you are (roughly) employed?

You may, I'm 27, I work in a call center for a rather large company, I make alright money for the job I'm doing, but the hours are highly variable. Health insurance is available to me through work, but because of the variability of my paychecks, I would at times be unable to afford the extra money taken out of those checks for health insurance.

Thanks, I'm gathering 'real people' examples to help describe the insurance issues to some right-leaning friends. The problem though, is that they don't see 'the right to live free of pain' as a human right, but rather one you purchase like a product.

Best to ya, -R

Glad to be of help :)
