“That's awful to hear. Still the odds are not as bad as traffic accidents.
So children should have more extensive testing. I know adults who developed auto immune diseases seemingly out of the blue. Don't need a vaccination for it will eventually occur.”

“I don't care if the odds are 1 in ten million, if my daughters life is at risk and it's 100% preventable by not getting vaccinated, I'm not letting her get the shots. Period. The risk is NOT worth it.”
“Re paying for subsidies — still cheaper to pay for a minor doctor office visit than the paying part of the salaries of 50 hospital employees that one encounters in the ER when one procrastinates in dealing with a medical issue.
And I thought Republicans loved saving money. Only saving money for the insurance companies, obviously!
Yes, perhaps some people were paying too high a deductible for a broken bone. Depends on the policy. But it's when things really hit the fan where one really finds out where their policies fall apart.”

“So all those people who's lives were saved getting cancer treatments, emergency surgeries, etc..using their "junk" policies weren't really getting a good deal..right? You really need to stop drinking the kool-aid and wake up before it's too late.
And by the way, since I am sure you didn't notice, Obama took more money from the big insurance companies that any other candidate in the last two elections and you think it's the republicans that are in bed with insurance companies? You really are in need of some serious education on this subject. Just reading the propaganda isn't serving you very well.”
“A pencil arrives broken, but since it was paid-for, just tape it together and use it. It works perfectly fine, until the pencil is used and sharpened to the broken spot. It's a pencil, it writes, it's good. Why get a new pencil?
On the other hand, obviously, some people don't even know that their pencil is broken.
Also, she should not be sorry that she voted for O; she should be sorry that congress whittled down his proposal until it became this version of the ACA, where the for-profit insurance companies can still play games with us.
President is not king; this had to get by 400 people.”

“Peculiar analogy. In their case, the pencil was not broken. They can have any emotions over the pres that they feel the need to have with this latest issue. They are not the only ones.
There is a pres who can give a great sales pitch but doesn't bring the goods. Perhaps that is what the 400 missed.”

“So have the children tested for underlying conditions that make them susceptible to side effects. My children's doctor would take temperatures before giving out the flu shot, make sure no one had a cold.”
“I actually don't care if people pay twice as much as they should for inferior health insurance, as long as they go to the doctor and not to the ER, and no depending on the rest of us to pay for them.
I feel sorry for how much they enjoy to stew in ignorance.
But I know one thing: I'm always grateful when someone points out a better deal for me.”

“Another worthless DNC Obamacare talking point without any proof to back up your claims. It's amazing how the vast majority of people were using their "inferior health insurance" to keep themselves healthy, mend broken bones, cure illnesses and take care of their children all these years...then suddenly Obamacare made these plans worthless, expensive and nothing more than junk. You really need to come up with another story to sell Obamacare because this one isn't working. And by the way...with the Obamacare subsidies being handed out..we are all still paying for those people going to the ER without insurance. Who did you think was paying for all the new "free" health care? Oh wait..you're a liberal, you actually think free is free..right?”
“Why is she restricting herself to Kaiser? There's the rub. Go on the exchange, and do some real comparison shopping.”

“Considering that she had insurance that was just fine and working for the family it seems absurd to have to now seek out another company, doesn't it? She is still looking but she is sorry that she voted for O”

“Thanks for the links. I liked Faith No More, but I don't think his newer work is going to grab Kennedy Center, ever. The very first link that I shrugged my shoulders at was the best of it. Couldn't stand the last performance that opens the interview. Disappointing.
But let's see what happens when he's 68 years old. Maybe it'll grow on the committee.
“Everyone has the right to be healthy and afford treatment. Everyone, to ensure a stable country, should not be fleeced by for-profit insurance companies.
No one has the right to not go to the doctor when a problem is minor, and then go to the ER when the issue has become major — especially when it costs the rest of us, and ruins our Pursuit of Happiness.
Single payer would eliminate most issues.”

“Actually, I've read that the only "right"/guarantee/promise we have at birth is the end of life.... Everything that happens in between is done according to what can be and people decide to build, not often just expect others to do.
Compare groups, culture, mentalities, and societies throughout history ... you say there are universal "rights"? Really?”

“Permanent disabilities are hype, if the patient has no pre-existing conditions.”
rikadarling on Dec 9, 2013 at 17:31:47
“Hype? Tell that to someone whose daughter was perfectly healthy prior to receiving the vaccine and then suddenly becomes ill with an auto immune disease, Guillan Barre, or some other horrific disease. Tell that to my dog who came down with AIHA (Auto Immune Hemolytic Anemia) after getting a rabies vaccine. You unfortunately are misinformed or a tool of the pharma industry with no concept of the real world.”
“Your relative is not looking in the right spot. Make sure it's not a bogus site, which offers only high price policies. Make sure the data input is correct. CA has plenty of options.
No way does NY have the only good policies.”

“Pretty sure that she, a teacher, and he, an engineer, know what to do. It was not about price but preexisting condition. Which Ocare was NOT supposed to consider. She has looked at Kaiser and their prices are outrageous. Perhaps you should look up the turmoil in CA and their take on OCare. None of it. good.”
“"Just fine… no problems", yeah, right. So gullible and that compulsion for immediate gratification…”
Swankie on Dec 9, 2013 at 17:19:45
“yes, they were fine..very fine...perfect for most people. Why do you have a problem with people actually liking their old health care? It doesn't fit in the DNC Obamacare talking point lies so they had to develop the Junk Plan new tag line?”
“They want to hear, "we know you were a victim. We're sorry. We will impose laws and regulations so that it never happens again. We will ensure that no one gets in your way to become productive citizens, able to raise your children safely where ever you want, go to any quality public school you want.”
