No one is willing to sacrifice anymore. We ask others to sack up all the time without taking any hardships ourselves.
Healthcare is the perfect example. True story on this link:
The story was submitted by me to the KC Star. They printed it. When my friend found out he was furious - he said "How can you tell me how I am supposed to spend my money".
I replied THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I AM SAYING TO YOU ABOUT MY TAXES AND HEALTHCARE!!!
Had he sacked up, left the expensive phones on the shelf, kept his 21 inch television, his older car, and dropped cable he would have had plenty of money for a premium each month.
We are a lazy society.
