“What he saw wasn't truth. It was delusion. Just because perception shapes an individuals reality doesn't make it so for the whole of reality. I mean there are people out there who think aliens are putting tracking devices in their teeth.......”
“Ah, so as an American I am privlaged with free healthcare but then he will comeback around and call me a deadbeat when I don't pay for this mythical care the "tax payers" are providing me. It's a wonder anyone is voting for this very confused man.”
“"Look, it doesn't make a lot of sense for us to have millions and millions of people who have no health insurance and yet who can go to the emergency room and get entirely free care for which they have no responsibility, particularly if they are people who have sufficient means to pay their own way," he said.
When I was rushed to the hospital for extensive intracranial pressure that was causing me chroinic health problems I didn't get the pleasure of this so called free care. Would have saved me thousands of dollars in medical bills. Hey Mitt, shoot me an email on the ins and outs of getting this magical free care you speak of.”

“Basically, you refuse to pay. It gets noted on your credit but medical emergencies don't really affect your credit rating. Hospitals will turn it over to collections, collections will send you letters and call you, but frankly they can't do anything else. I imagine that is what Mitt is talking about, because free care is not "offer" -- care is given and then attempts to collect payment after the fact fail, and thus fall to the taxpayer.”

“That is exactly why everybody needs health insurance. We all deserve good health care.”
“ would recieve less than $200 a month for food. As for your claim that the greatest number of foodstamps being used under our current president is at the highest in history is a false claim made by Newt Gingrich on Jan. 16 of this year in a debate. More were added under Bush than under Obama, according to the most recent figures. But figures be damned right? You didn't even know the difference between medical and medicaid, and you accuse me of not knowing much? Ha.”
“ You seem to have a fundamental lack of understanding of these programs work.First off Medicaid and Medical are two different programs with two different purposes. Medicare is a program designed to help with long term care for the elderly over 65, while medicaid is a program designed to assist the poor. Both are known under the same name in both states. Medical is not the California version of medicaid. Furthermore not everyone is elgible for the program. Lets say if i was poor I still couldn't get Medicaid because I am a male without children, not withstanding other stringent qualifications I wouldn't meet. Section 8 housing doesn't provide you free housing. It is a program to Section 8 program is to close the gap between a city's market rate rents and what a low-income family can afford to pay for rent. If a family is spending more than 30% of their earned income on rent and utilitys they can apply for a voucher to help pay the gap. This program often has an extremely long wait list numbering into years, and has a budget meaning that the number of people it helps is limited. Moving onto foodstamps, again not everyone qualifes. It's a small pittance based on how much you make if your employeed(which if you work over a certain amount of hours a week you are ineligible) or how much you were making when you did have a job. A single person without children with no job that had been making less than $13k”
“"If you are actually "poor" in the USA,
you get free:
healthcare, housing, food, medicine, education, job training, etc. etc."
You don't seriously believe that do you?”

“Greatest number of food stamp participation in history under this president.
Heard of the Section 8 program for free housing?
How about Medicaid? You know , the FREE program for healthcare in New York which is known as MediCal in California.
Guess you don't know much.”
“These ladies are doing Gods work. Funny the vatican wants to stop them. The vatican seems to be an organization thats starting to show its cracks. I expect a group like them trapped in amber will eventually crumble.”
“We should just start questioning the patriotism of everyone that doesnt have their car painted red white and blue. Heck why stop there, we should start slapping a flag sticker on everything. If you don't have one you should get thrown into jail for being a possible terr orist.
Oh I see its only requried to show patriotism at the olympic games. Good to know.”
