People are smart. They understand most of the laws and how to use them to their benefit. It's just human nature and the American way. For example, Nebraska expanded its "safe haven" law that allows parents to leave a child at a hospital without explaining why. All states have this but it is usually to protect infants less than a year of age. Unfortunately, Nebraska thought they would expand this to all ages and now they are going to pay for it. Read the USA Today article and you will be amazed at the examples listed. The law just took effect this July and already there have been multiple cases. One parent dropped off nine of his kids due to what investigators felt was parental fatigue instead of financial woes. The best part is the new Nebraska law actually protects these parents from prosecution. I think it was Forrest Gump who said,"Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get". Exactly. Imagine extrapolating the above situation to a law that socializes medicine. Imagine giving everything away for free and nothing is rationed for fear of being sued by the ACLU. What would happen? It would be a government bailout like we are seeing on Wall Street --- times a thousand.
