When you get a bid on getting your roof replaced (for an example) and you get 3 different bids. Do you pick the cheapest one out there?
When you go grocery shopping, do you fore go name brands and always buy the cheapest thing there is?
When you buy a new car do you forget personal preference/need or performance ratings and buy the cheapest thing on the lot?
I'm going to venture a guess and say no, you do not always buy what's cheapest....
So why do the Republicans feel that we need to always settle for what's cheap? They have a new health care proposal that they are touting as cheaper than the President's plan. So, what? That doesn't make it the plan that will suit the needs of the American people. Consumers are willing to pay for quality. So, why can't we get a quality health care plan that meets our needs, even if we have to pay a little more for it? I think any individual would be willing to pay higher taxes for quality. And I shouldn't just say "higher taxes" because that sounds overwhelming. The thing is that most times, it doesn't really amount to all that much more when it comes down to it.
