I will. Now I will use what I have learned remind you that I said, "Boycott of Glenn Beck's advertisers" and not Glenn Beck's show directly. By refusing to buy the products of those who advertise on these shows I am letting my voice be heard the most american way possible-- through capitalism.

I will not insult you like you did me as you've already done more yourself than I could ever hope to.
04:32 PM on 08/31/2009
I AGREE COMPLETELY! I've written to all advertisers on FIX news to let them know I am boycotting them all!

Whether or not Kennedy would have been sent home or not seems irrelevant - both sides will argue there case, claiming that the other side is lying. What is clear is that here, in the United States, Ted Kennedy received exceptional care that prolonged his life far beyond the normal expectancy for someone with his diagnosis. That is testament to both his strength of will and mind, and also to the quality of health care you're able to get in this country. Yet some continue to imply the notion that the quality of our care is sub standard. Some believe we should all get the same kind of care that Ted Kennedy received, and while that would be fantastic there has to be a reason why that same care is not included in the proposed bills. Again I ask, and wait for an answer, why did our representatives exclude themselves from this plan if it is so wonderful?

I have to agree. Compassion is in short supply in the GOP.

It's shameful for a pastor to be working to prevent access to health care by trying to scare people who have health care with lies. Talk about a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Logic? He actually uses the word, logic? I think someone should send him an email with the definition of that word because it is obvious to at least me, he doesn't have a clue as to what it means.

I thought Preachers were suppose to at least give the appearance that they are telling the truth, but I guess being faithful to the Republican party trumps being a faithful to his god and the truth.

It's guys like this that give religion a bad wrap!

Brit criminals do better than innocent.
Patients in Health Service hospitals are far more likely to go hungry than criminals in jail, scientists warned yesterday.
They say frail and elderly patients do not get the help they need with meals, and nobody checks whether they get enough to eat.

The Daily Mail is a RIGHT WING paper. If the NHS is so horrible, why don't the Brits want to get rid of it??

My Father-In-Law had a head injury at 69 in the UK. The neurosurgeons were amazing, and he got amazing care, so much so that they ignored his DNR health directive (drawn up in the US where he spent half his time), and we were worried about his quality of life had he survived. 10 days of trying to save him did not work. But it was ten days, multiple brain surgeries, and round-the-clock intensive care. They denied him nothing. There was no waiting. Eventually there were more brain infarctions and liver failure and that was it. But I've seen the NHS work in person, and I'd take that any day over what we have now.

My frail and elderly Gran in Newcastle, England is in and out of the hospital all the time. She eats very well and has never complained once. She is checked on hourly. In fact, she is afraid to come visit us here in the USA because of what she has heard of our healthcare system. Please learn the facts before posting something like this.

The people that believe this crap are the same people that believe the United states is still a world super power. The best and the wealthiest, the most educated. It is pathetic.

What is wrong with people who believe that health care is to be provided by government....what about food and shelter. Cannot anyone fend for themselves and be self-reliant and pay their own way.
The government provides for the poor with medicaid.
All others that pay taxes do not want to pay more.
03:27 PM on 08/31/2009
Actually the govt does not provide all poor people with healthcare. Only people below the poverty line. Any idea what that line is? it is miniscule. What about the people of the lower and middle class, They are the people suffering, the small business owners and workers who would love to provide or have healthcare. I am all for people providing for themselves, having initiative, but give them something affordable. The cost of private healthcare has risen 13% this year. How can anyone afford that. Oh and those that pay taxes pay for the wonderful healthcare govt officials get along with their salaries. You want to pay for private heath insurance, go ahead and let others have a more affordable options, maybe then you will get to pay a little less. Oh and all that money you pay to health insurance hundreds of millions went to lobbying instead of your medicines and your healthcare.

Real reform means real choice—Private versus Public. There is nothing more American than real, competition-based choice, something republicans despise because the continued monopolization of the health industry ensures their uninhibited access to wealth, which translates into unrestrained political power. Universal healthcare works well in Great Britain, but is opposed by republicans because the Brits have succeeded in removing the constant quest for greed-driven profit from the equation. By using alarmist rhetoric, republicans are attempting to intimidate Americans into remaining loyal to an unsustainable and broken system that is exploitive, abusive, predatory, corrupt and immoral. Contrary to what republican would want you to believe, socialize medicine works exceptionally well in America, as evidenced by Medicare, military medicine and the Veterans Administration. Over 44 million Americans receive their healthcare through Medicare, and the number of Medicare beneficiaries receiving prescription drug coverage is expected to top 28 million this year. Combined, the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs provide health care services to more than 17 million beneficiaries. Unlike predatory private insurers, beneficiaries in these systems receive benchmark pricing and patient protection rights because the incentives have been changed from profit to ensuring affordable, quality-based, cost-effective healthcare. Republicans demonize these systems because the incentive for profit has been removed, which means they can’t exploit these systems for political or monetary gain. Even though as an actor Reagan was paid to villainize socialized medicine, 40 years later, Medicare in a glowing success.

President Obama truly cares about the prosperity and well-being of every American—regardless of class or ethnicity. Afraid of the impact Obama might have on unifying America, republicans are villainizing, dehumanizing and delegitimizing him to advance their exclusionist and elitist agenda. Since Obama is not part of the entrenched Washington political establishment, or the elitist upper crust, he feels no pressure or obligation to return favors that would unnecessarily sacrifice precious political capital he’ll need in the future to coax or strong-arm career politicians. Republicans are singularly fixated on maintaining the status quo to ensure their continued generational access to wealth, influence and power. Similar to race-restrictive country clubs, republicans are concerned primarily with separating and distancing themselves from members of the working-class. After all, the purpose of the working-class is to serve the wealthy by cooking their meals, raising their children, cleaning their homes and doing whatever tasks deemed essential to ensuring their existence is awash in luxury, simplicity and overindulgence. Working-class republicans have been duped into believing that their concerns/interests are championed by republicans, a political party heavily comprised of wealthy, upper crust aristocrats. In reality, the GOP is only concerned with advancing their own self-serving interests, which is why they exploit working-class republicans, are against worker rights and want to keep America angrily divided by class and race. Universal health insurance would provide hope and elevate the standard of living for working-class Americans, something republicans vehemently oppose.
