Ann Romney Wouldn't Find Free-Market Health Care Without Mitt Romney's Millions

Ann Romney Wouldn't Find Free-Market Health Care Without Mitt Romney's Millions

Commented Apr 8, 2012 at 07:55:17 in Money

“Exactly of what is Ann Romney guilty? She and her husband have been together since 1969; they have raised a family; earned their (yes it belongs to both) money legally; she has MS and survived ductal cancer. And she has insurance. All the hate. For what?”

“So time evil people no matter what is said just won't get the point or they chose to side step the truth. You are not getting the point of the article. This one of the reasons the world is the way it is because people like you.”

“Typical teabagger who thinks that just because people disagree with them it is equivalent to hate.

We are pointing out the fact that only the wealthy could self insure or even afford the astronomically high premiums, co pays, and deductibles. Only the wealthy could defend the practices of for profit insurance companies and oppose ACA. And you teabaggers are pawns.”

“All the hate!! Where? Why are YOU trying to make something out of nothing. It is a comparative article. Try reading without injecting your hate.”

“Nobody is "hating" her. They are pointing out the blindness and insensitivity of Mitt wanting to end the Affordable Health Care Act which, if Ann were not married to Mitt she would absolutely need in order to survive the same way the woman in the article needs... in order to keep herself out of financial disaster (since she has no access to insurance to cover the "pre-existing" conditions of MS) should she have a health crisis.”

“Could have been avoided if the kid took the permission slip home and an attentive parent signed it and made sure the kid's hair was combed....the principal should have allowed the child to sit in the office while the kiddies got photographed. Poor kid. He must have felt really bad.”

“It's "Maroons" like you who should be ashamed, YOU have no idea if the little child had his hair combed or not. Maybe it's because you didn't care how your own kids look for their 3rd.

“@Carolyn

My airline travel NIGHTMARE beats yours by a SUPER LONG SHOT. Try imagining being a 6-4 guy/passenger; NOT traveling First-Class; on a Delta Airlines direct flight to Singapore [w/ a “very brief stop” to refuel in Japan] from Atlanta, Ga.

Also add to that really long miserable flight, a stretch of flight time where THREE (3) babies decided to simultaneously WAIL-AWAY for what seemed like HOURS!”

“Foolish comment, demonstrating that its writer quite obviously either didn't read the article carefully or simply didn't understand it.”

“Nonsense. He knows, as a con law prof, that that arguments that may carry the day with this court, the most conservative since people have been measuring, is one that was thrown out over 80 years ago. And each of the RATS sat there in their confirmation hearings telling us they would follow stare decisis (Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia).

What would be the difference of a tax to pay for health care that was fully refunded--as a deduction or credit--to every person has health care coverage otherwise?”

AmericanDoughboy on Apr 5, 2012 at 07:40:33

“So, if you understand it so well, how about juxtaposing the opinions of Tom Jefferson and Barack Obama regarding judicial review and get back to us. Start with the Judicial Act of 1800, the opinion issued by the Marshall court (Marbury). I think you will find that the opinion of the executives are practically equivalent...”

“Seems to me that it is this activist conservative court that oversteps its bounds. For crying out loud, they've just made it legal for citizens of this country to be strip searched for the most minor offenses. What will it be next? Torture is okay, as long as there's a "perceived threat", which will be left up to the local police departments to decide. And we know how much they can all be trusted. When Bush was president, we constantly heard complaints of "activist liberal judges" and how they should be impeached. I for one have completely lost faith in the SCOTUS, starting with the horrible Gore v Bush decision. They've become as radical as the GOP, predictably always siding with power and against the little guy.”

aussie01 on Apr 5, 2012 at 07:31:17

“So it is perfectly ok for one branch to disrespect the other two? This was passed by a filibuster-proof majority.

This requires SERIOUS contemplation by the unelected branch!”

“How true! I recently did a complete diet overhaul and believe it or not, my snack of choice now is steamed broccoli! I actually crave it at times.

Mitt Romney Claims President Obama Will 'End Medicare'

Commented Apr 4, 2012 at 19:26:22 in Politics

“I disagree with Romney that Medicare's demise is in the offing. I can tell you though, the HealthCare Bill has already dramatically changed Medicare recipients' access to primary providers, negatively impacted the coverage of both diagnostic labs and imaging, and even some denial of procedures are occurring. The same situation is occurring for folks with commerical health plans: folks are seeing less covered preventive services, higher deductibles and co-pays, more and more stringent rules and government control. Some parts of the bill could be salvaged but what is really needed, in my opinion, and hasn't yet occurred, is an independent audit of all government funded and adminstered healthcare services, Since the advent of Medicare and Medicaid and SSI, and Tricare, there have been no audits for fraud. There's a huge savings yet undiscovered. Talk to healthcare professionals for the lowdown.”

okim5150 on Apr 4, 2012 at 19:34:41

“I have a friend who would have reached his life time limit if it hadn't been for the health care bill. He still has insurance along with a million or so others.

“However the president's comment was meant by him or interpreted by us, one cannot deny that his comment explained the reason why he never publlished.”

“Perhaps he will publish when he leaves the White House in 2016. At that time, he'll have alot of stuff to include in his book.....with all that has happened, the Tea Party and the weak GOP Congress.....he should have a best seller.”

“Fanned for your comment, not the picture. I swear. The man has a huge ego and claims everything, but never published anything? No body has any pictures of him, recounts his days as Professor, Community Organizer. Nobody counts the "Ums" when he speaks or notes the choppy sentences that make no sense. Carney was asked about the SC ruling and three times told Bret Bair it was about him trying to control the conversation. At what point does the left understand Deb Please-Wash-Your-Hair Schultz, Biden, Pelosi (6-3 baby) need to just be quiet. The President misses so often because he wants to tell people how it is, but should realize he needs to say nothing and put value into when he speaks. (And actually have something to say)”
