“And then where will the rich in other countries who currently come to the United States for quality health care go? Now people in America can wait just as long for treatment as they do in those other countries that provide rationed, mediocre care.”

“You mean certain Latin American, and middle eastern countries....well they use to go to Germany, and United Kingdom.....now days...they go to Turkey, Israel, Cuba, Canada, Thailand.....I really would like to understand the purpose of your statement..."Where will the rich in other countries who come to the United States for quality health care go" percentage of foreign patients coming to this country for treatment is so little it does not make a dent in the medical incomes except the balance sheet of certain hospitals who are charging arm & leg plus........”
“When is the government going to recognize plural marriage? Equal protection means EQUAL< protection.”

“I think it would consider recognizing it as soon as enough people who want it, spend decades sacrificing their life and their time rallying for its support. Have they done that? Are there enough people who still want it?
If not, why bring it up?”

“That's not an equal protection case, because plural marriage is structurally different.
If you need that to be demonstrated it's easy enough.”

“Plural marriage? As in polygamy?”

“Hi Larry - it is in the word, equal and there is more. Have you ever wondered why in so many countries that recognize marriage for gay and Lesbian couples do not also recognize plural marriages?
Marriage in countries that do not allow polygamy -marriage is a legal contract between two people -with presumed equality between the two people. This is important in many estate issues, apportionment, inheritance, divorce, child support and custody and much more. In countries where there is polygamy, there is not presumed equality -generally the man has more rights, with the various wives with lesser rights -all rather labyrinthian. Marriage for same sex couples changes nothing in the normal contractual capabilities in marriage between two people. i hope this helps deepen your understanding of the legal implications and why it is not likely that marriage equality with be extended to polygamy -a different form of marriage contract.
“And then when the marriage fails, what do the parties do? It is not just about tax status. It is also about how dissolution of a marriage is handled. If you want to get government out of marriage, get the government out of divorce, too. Good luck!”
“I hope your opened mindedness extends to plural marriage. Equal means EQUAL!”

“Actually the Supreme Court recently ruled on Utah prosecution of plural marriages. This is an issue for Mormon's and Muslim's in America. In time I think that SCOTUS will overturn these laws prohibiting free practive of religion too.”

“So you have a great affordable health care plan.... I don't
And affording one is nearly impossible with the status quo...
I don't believe in hand outs....but politicians are the first inline to secure their own,
All political parties included. A national standard in a Billion upon billion dollar enterprise is at the cost of human life and people are dying hoping to receive medical help they can't afford.
This is a moral obligation in society as we live on this planet.....Yes that is socialism.... and God expects that !”
HITO on Dec 10, 2013 at 08:11:46
“"blatant lies" ??? What blatant lies could you be referring to ? That people were dying and having catastrophic events requiring emergency care because they couldn't afford an annual check up ? That people were filing personal bankruptcy due to such catastrophic events - and who picks up the tab then - THE TAXPAYERS.
Here's a fact: Reagan's trickle down theory was THE biggest lie spoon fed to the public. All it did was take middle class income and have it trickle up to the wealthy.

“They have to accept it because it is the law of the land and we are a country ruled by law (except for Daryl Issa). Now here's a new concept for you. Get control of both Houses and win the presidency and repeal it. I know, I know ... it's a radical idea, but I hear it works and it has even been done! And are you suggesting that a politician was less than truthful? OMG!!!!!!”

“And the Repubs only tell the truth? You have to be kidding. How about the Repub party in CA that set up an official looking site that could be mistaken for the state site and put up very misleading information to convince people not to sign up. When it comes to lying, the Repubs are the true masters of the art.”
“The main failure is the obvious lies people are now realizing the President has been telling regarding features of the ACA plus people are learning they are being forced to purchase coverage the do not need. How can unnecessary coverage be considered superior to what the President is calling "substandard coverage". The sole creators of the problems are the Democrats who passed the bill and the President who signed it into law.”
sandsman101 on Nov 27, 2013 at 10:04:02
“The true main failure is a lack of politicians to accept what the majority voted on and work towards making it successful. Instead, the Republicans are only concerned about what will get them in or keep them in office, and could care about what the majority voted for. Sore losers and big babies is how I see it. As to unnecessary coverage - it is only unnecessary until you need it, and most people are only concerned about the moment they are in. This is insurance for all possibilities, not just to the ones that you have already experienced...”

“Maybe he should talk with the newest couple in CA that just had their monthly premiums tripled and the over 8 MILLION who have now lost their insurance because it wasn't up to Obamacare standards. FOX NEWS has this story that you won't read on Puff Post.”
