“expecting me to pay for your doctor visit is radical and does not work
expecting to change healthcare without torte reform is stupid and another reason Obama-care won't work.
wanting clean air is good for all but not when it uses phony science..... people who get paid to come up with studies to support a viewpoint.”

“No one is expecting you to pay for anything, except for yourself.
Tort reform? So, when the doctor makes a mistake that could possibly render you incapable, you don't mind your compensation being inadequate for your continued care?
Clean air is based on phony science? I presume that the very few scientists who proffer a different view of climate change are doing so from the goodness of their hearts and not for the check from the various fossil fuel industries that like the idea of polluting our planet?”

“If you have health insurance your are paying for someone else's doctor that's how it works, I hope you don't think the insurance co is keeping your premium saved up in a lock box for only your use.”

“Funny thing...Obamacare is working, and the people being paid to come up with studies are supporting the climate change denier viewpoint. Both of them.”

“If I'm just as willing to pay for your doctor visits and put up the money to do so, why shouldn't I expect the same courtesy in return?”

“Driving to Decatur, IL, I see all the corn being grown while I burn my ethanol gas eating cereal....... but how can I avoid using these products?
Why do you allow that to happen?
IL is full of crony capitalism and it needs to stop......”

“True . We are now feeding our cars corn whiskey and our meat animals chemicals .Why are we so dumb ? I prefer corn-fed beef to alcohol in my car. WHO did it ?Well it wasnt me . But today the farm subsidy bill was before the house to give them MORE at a cost to us taxpayers .
PS Corn is a commodity and so is labor . Why isnt labor supported in the same style as pork bellies ?------We know why dont we ?”
“who pays for the subsidies for Obama-care?
The people who pay taxes.....it is a slight of hand, a card trick and you have your liberal lemming glasses on and can't see it......
the US citizen pays for all of these government programs. Even if a business pays taxes, the consumer has purchased the product to create the profit so government can take it share. So you are paying for it directly and indirectly.
That is why smaller government makes sense. Government does create profit, increase value or the GDP.”
Walter Lampton on Dec 5, 2013 at 11:01:48
“ADM (Archer Daniels Midland ---ethanol ) is the largest welfare case in the USA .They get a subsidy for raising corn , another for processing the corn and a 56 cent subsidy per gal when it goes in your tank . It does nothing for your car but it raises the cost of your cereal and meat . SUCKER !”
“once the dust clears, you will have some changes so that 70 year men are not paying for maternity coverage.
once insurance companies see the demand, they will have another tier of coverage that you won't be able to purchase on the government exchanges. it is just business.....for profit....
greed is good since it drives companies to have profits so the government can take it's share like Tony Saprano.......”
it is a government program, doctor shortage will take place in the next few years, people will find out there will be "death Panels", can not cover the cost of Medicaid, no savings of $2,500 per family and then people will find private health insurance again and enroll since they will be able to control who is their doctor and which hospital they will go to......
so in the end, you will have two or more systems of healthcare with the rich and healthy paying less and getting better coverage while the middle class pays for another silly liberal lemming program that does not work.”

“With Obamacare, routine checkups will be done by nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Physicians will be busy, but they will get help from the boom in other healthcare jobs that Obamacare has prompted.”
AntiSocialSailor on Dec 4, 2013 at 19:17:45
“"...and then people will find private health insurance again and enroll since they will be able to control who is their doctor and which hospital they will go to......"
Such is the depth of ig.norance that informs this debate.
Just what do you think Obamacare is? It IS PRIVATE Insurance from PRIVATE insurance companies. That's most of what's wrong with it. They should have just let everyone enroll in the PUBLIC insurance program called MEDICARE.”
“deductibles are going up, families have co pays and will be paying more per year or not going to the doctor...... so why was this passed?
who read it?
how is this going to save us $2,500 per year as the President promised while the deductible has doubled? Fuzzy math by the Democrats or just Chicago math.”
Walter Lampton on Dec 4, 2013 at 19:03:20
“Cost of insurance is one thing.MINUS the subsidies and deductibles is another.
Republican always claim taxes are high but they never tell you about the refund that cuts their taxes in half . Example the person paying 25% income tax earning $40,000 will pay $10,000 but the refund can be $5,000 cutting the REAL TAX to 12.5 % And its the same for Obamacare --The cost can be high but the subsidies and deductions can lower it . GOT IT ? Romney paid 15% in taxes and bitched about high taxes . Today republicans are bitching about the cost of insurance but they never mention the SUBSIDIES . Do you know why ? They want it to fail (not because of the price or the benefits ). They want it to fail because of OBAMA Dont THEY ?”

Senate rules are not a bill...and, the Constitution gives the House and Senate the right to create their own rules;-)

“Because Warren has some questions about her Indian heritage yet and Hillary has many questions about her, like what really happened in Benghazi or why she blamed a YOUTUBE video for the attack, neither should be worried about becoming the Democratic nominee for the White House.
Neither women can win a National Election. The only election Hillary won was a Senate seat in New York which based on current elections, is not hard to do for Democrat. Why didn't Hillary try to win election in IL, the state she lived in prior to getting on the coat-tails of her man Bill Clinton?”
“When unemployment for young adult African American males is over 20%, it is a concern for all because if people don't have real jobs they find themselves working in cash businesses which might be illegal and then I can not go into certain neighborhoods because they are too dangerous.

“Hold your breath til we ask you. In the mean time worry about all those young white boys snapping with their assault weapons, killing up innocent folk at day care centers, theaters, schools and churches. That ought to be enough to keep you out of our business.”
“based on educational testing and inner city schools, we now know that the state is not better at education and looking at Medicare programs and this roll-out of Obamacare along with how government does not understand how insurance works even though the government is trying to take over the this industry is enough proof to know that Adam Smith was wrong on this too.”
She keeps going back to talking points about Obamacare when these points have been dropped by every other Democrat, even the President because they are false.
Pelosi forgets that Obamacare changes what insurance policies cover and how even small changes in policies, which happen every year, void or cancel that policy and makes it illegal for an insurance company to sell....
Insurance policies are not constant and never changing unlike any federal program.......”
“the individual market is going away because of Obamacare rules and regulations.....

“Individual marketing is defined as... the individual market is defined as tailoring products and marketing programs to the needs and preferences of individual customers.
When, pray tell, did the insurance companies evvvvveeeerrrr do this?!”
“It has been almost four years since it passed, no Democrat read the bill before they passed it, mocked anyone who stated that health insurance policies would be cancelled, mocked anyone who claimed there was death panels and then continued to lie.......
Susan, I admire you ability to keep an open mind but this is a disaster that will get worst over the next few years. When the website works, the sticker shock starts, then the employer mandate delay while be over then we will have individuals and companies with cancellations.....
People have been converted from full time to part time, economy stalled and the President owes anyone who disagreed with them an apology for being correct.”
Susieq Blitzy on Nov 14, 2013 at 13:47:18
“Please do not misunderstand my intentions. I do not like the ACA, nor do I believe the POTUS is doing a good job. I simply gave him the credit he finally earned in "my eyes", by admitting his fault in the disaster at hand. The ACA has not helped my family, nor has it made my healthcare more affordable. I assume somewhere out there it has helped someone. I appreciate the fact that if it is law and we must obey the laws, that they recognize the flaws and try to fix them. That is all I meant to say.”
“having millions lose their health insure and the ACA exchange is not working, how is that ignorant?
it is ignorant not to act and if you keep believing the lies, then just give your paycheck to the President every Friday....... Medicare/Medicad has over 30% of it's budget being paid to people who are committing fraud...... who is ignorant and stupid?”
