“That's why the GOP love you. They can rob you blind, and you'll be too preoccupied parroting their talking points to a tee. Fact check man, fact check. That's what we do to our party when they speak. The least you can do is do it to your own.”

“If Obama IPAB isn't for rationing, why is there 15 Obama appointees on it? What are they going to do?”

Reaganite60 on May 30, 2011 at 00:16:56

“It's a death panel. Plain and simple. Once government implements socialized medicine and has complete control over it, they use cost savings as excuse to begin to regulate and control every aspect of the individual's life. Now that Obamacare has been implemented, authoritarian government's next moves, in the name of fighting obesity, will be to tax fatty foods and dictate what public schools are required to serve their students. He has already done this in some ways and we can rest assure the federal government will now seek further authority in regulating our diets. The left's assault on liberty is just starting.

In a system of socialized medicine, there is little reason for the state to expand coverage or improve upon it. Their top priority then shifts to one of fiscal efficiency and in the interest of saving money for the taxpayer and bending the cost curve, this death panel will make approvals and denials of coverage based on a criteria of a person's age and his level of productivity in society. Medicare in its current form already denies coverage at a rate much higher than those of private insurers so we know what the future of government run health care is going to bring. Shorter life expectancies and rationed care.”

“Hey, if we listened to the Republicans, as much as 3 million jobs would have been lost. Now that President Obama acted with compassion, that company not only is paying back the LOAN, but they're adding more jobs to the American economy.

Did FOX point this out? Probably not since they're not about Americans. Only the right's extremist agenda.”
