“Oh, so you don't think that the insurance companies would think of ripping you off? Providing no coverage when you actually got sick and kicking you off as soon as you used it. Making billions in profit for the insurance industry and not caring a whit about the customer. What is really needed is single payer and everyone gets the care they need because medical care should be a right.”

MemphisEd on Dec 2, 2013 at 07:31:39

“You still didn't answer the question on why you didn't previously have coverage.”

“The GOP has obstructed the recovery. It will get worse because of the inequality that is evident in this country and around the world. Even the pope has given his warning.”

draeger24 on Nov 29, 2013 at 22:00:08

“the Dems started the recession by not fixing the housing bubble when they had the chance...W warned of it in 2005, and Barney Frank and Chris dodd said all is well with Freddie and Fannie....the only thing the GOP has obstructed is Obama's march towards socialism...hey, how is all that money for "shovel-ready" jobs that weren't "shovel ready" working for ya? How about all the money wasted on solyndra that was kicked back to his campaign and his raising taxes workin' for ya? Hope and change...cough, cough...Bush's fault...cough cough...”

“Not so. Republicans have a war against women, minorities. They have to gerrymander and use voter suppression to win. They don't win on their ideas.”

GreshamGuy on Nov 21, 2013 at 13:28:15

“And gerrymandering does not work so well on state-wide Federal offices.”

“There is nothing in the Constitution that has anything to do with the rules of the Senate. It simply states that they can set their own rules. It doesn't designate what those rules are. Right, 2014 can't come fast enough to kick all those right wing idiotologs out of congress.”

Craig McKiernan on Nov 21, 2013 at 10:42:28

“If court cases are down and things are being handled easily at the moment, why is there a rush to change the ruels to a nuclear option TODAY?
Do you ever ask these sort of questions?”

“The Democrats have never blocked these types of appointments. Notice all the right wing judicial appointments that George W. Bush appointed and got through without any trouble. The majority of the senate represents a tiny minority of the population of the United States. That is enough protection for the minority.”

DrParkerHeart on Nov 21, 2013 at 10:49:20

“It is simply not true that the Democrats never blocked any of Geo Bush's appointments.”

“They wouldn't have to go nuclear because the Democrats haven't blocked these types of judicial appointments when they were appointed by Republican presidents.. Notice how we now have Scalia,Thomas and Alito. and the Democrats don't want even to apply to the Supreme Court which is over run with right wing idiotologs.”

“It is not a law. It is the operating rules of the senate and is only by their agreement. Not written into the constitution or anything like that and it is so undemocratic that a few senators elected from states of 1 million people can carry so much weight over those elected by 10, 20 and even 30 million people that it is even more offensive to democracy than your silly rant.”

“No, What I understand is that there is a legitimate approach which holds that borrowing money is bad and should be avoided whenever possible. What I don't understand is why so many people are easily swayed by fallacy when so many are going to college, and going in debt to do so. See, some of us oppose the financial destruction of the many to benefit the few.”

“Not so much. If they had to use them, they wouldn't pay out. Besides the public option was dropped to compromise with the Republicans. That was a mistake. This is a Republican plan put out by the Heritage foundation and now because Democrats and specifically Obama went with it, they hate it. Go figure.

Medicare for all is the way to go. Get insurance companies out of the mix and stop them from whacking 20% or more (in the past) off the top.”
