“We are going to see millions of reasons that Medicare should have been gradually expanded to include everyone. That, the right thing, was never going to happen because it would have cut out the insurance crooks and ended their generous contributions to members of the House and Senate.”
“The Affordable Care Act is here to stay. That's a good thing. Too bad it isn't just an extension of Medicare. It's time to go all the way and cut out insurance companies altogether.”

“I hope you don't really believe that, because it would destroy this country. The only people I know who support Obamacare do so because they come out ahead financially. Many do NOT--especially young and healthy individuals. There will be some type of healthcare reform, but Obamacare is unmanageable, unaffordable, and unconstitutional. The Supreme Court will have no choice but to strike it down due to the Origination Clause of the US Constitution, as rewritten by Chief Justice Roberts as a TAX. All tax legislation must originate in the House of Representatives--Obamacare was a Senate bill. Just wait and see--it's SLOWLY working it's way up there. They will strike it down--and SAVE this country.
“Insurance companies still make money by providing those on Medicare with supplemental insurance for what Medicare doesn't pay. And that supplemental insurance to someone on a fixed income isn't cheap!!!!!!!”

“There is NOTHING affordable or caring about this law. People are now finding out that their premiums are doubling and tripling and their copays start at 6,000 dollars. When everyone has to get a plan that covers drug addiction, maternity care and mental health care even though they do not need it, the costs soar out of sight. The administration has NO IDEA how to run the insurance business.”

“they still don't know that the entire rest of the WORLD's major countries have Universal Health for their citizens... Never, ever even heard of it.”
“Thanks to Republicans sending manufacturing jobs overseas.”

“You might want to go back and do at least some research before you make a statement like that one. In case you didn't know, or are just talking off the top of your head, it was during the peanut man's turn at destroying OUR COUNTRY that started the mass movement of manufacturing overseas. And, I am pretty sure he too was a dimwitocrap.”
“What the TP is doing is taking more from the middle class and giving it to the rich and powerful. Might not be what you want but that is what it is doing.”

“There are two ways of looking at this.
One point of view sees a 1% vs. 99% cleavage, while the other a 47% vs 53% breakdown.
The common-ist approach, that it's most of us versus "the rich," is a sham. Common-ism is doing what it has always done. It is aimed at levelling and despoiling the real middle class, the Kulaks that Stalin went after.”
“It's nice to have both pinto and black beans without dead animals in them.”

“If it weren't for "dead animals" not a single human would be here today. Chew on that.”

“Cry me a river......I slow roasted pork ribs yesterday for 4 hours at 250 and they were fall off the bone tender....with a great rub, it was an incredible treat. And guess what? I love animals....I volunteer at the SPCA, give a ton of money to cruelty charities...I also love guns, belong to the NRA....
“It is preserved. Do you think beauty is put on the planet only for the pleasure of humans and for them to inevitably destroy? It is beauty itself to think that some of the natural world remains safe and untouched by humans.”
