GOP Lawmakers Say Obama's Prisoner Exchange Violated Law

GOP Lawmakers Say Obama's Prisoner Exchange Violated Law

Commented Jun 1, 2014 at 14:31:04 in Politics

“I am an Independent (lean left) and believe both parties have something to offer. With that being said I am getting sick and tired of listening to the Republican party criticize everything the President does. They offer no solutions just criticism. The President is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. The Republicans just look like fools at this point.”

“I am sure he has great insurance and will receive the best care possible. It is a tough surgery and physical therapy takes time. He is in great shape for a man his age and will probably rebound quickly and be back on his feet in no time.”

ex-eye-in-the-sky on May 28, 2014 at 14:56:54

“Even if Pres Bush didn't have "any" insurance...I'm pretty sure he has enough money that any doctor in America would be available to him. In fact most of them would probably do it pro bono just to be able to say they were the one who did the deed. And then hang his picture up in their office. I'd say any Dr in the World. But I've heard some Countries might have a problem with him entering their borders.

Even though I've never been one of his biggest fans, he was nonetheless our President & Commander in Chief. That said I wish him only the very best and most speedy recovery. Get well soon sir. So you can have as much time off as possible again. Like you always did while in office.”

“Does he hate Obama (whether he's black or democrat or whatever reason) so much that he would take insurance away from this State's constituent? And these people will probably vote for this man? Pray tell, what will you do for these families Mr. McConnell, put them on welfare? Let them lose their homes and businesses to medical costs? What's the alternative for them?”

“While I sympathize for this father and I believe any parent would go to dire extremes to save/help their child, I have to think of the flip side as well. How many other peoples children that were addicted or died from the product he was transporting? I think this speaks volumes for the health insurance policies this country has. It's disgusting how an insurance company can drop you when sick and refuse a 250,000 bone marrow that would potentially save your life.”

nhwynter73 on May 13, 2014 at 20:31:10

“Insurance companies can no longer drop you for that. Remember, this happened 20 years ago. . That is one of the ONLY good things about the ACA..”

“Exactly my point and my blog I have put in here. Many are not thinking of the harm or deaths that are a result of his delivering the drugs, or they do not care.”

jacmed on May 13, 2014 at 10:38:59

“Yes, other children were addicted or died, but three consecutive life sentences is ridiculous. As to the rest of your post, that won't happen any more unless the GOP succeeds in getting the ACA repealed - they we'll be right back where we started.”

“The difference for me is that those addicts are addicts by choice. We can't blame those who produce it, transport it, and sell it and disregard the responsibility of the people consuming it. This father knew drugs were a quick way to make a lot of money.....his child's life was in danger. I'd have done the same thing. Let him out of jail.....he's served more than enough time for this.”

geraldms on May 13, 2014 at 10:32:17

“Insurance is based upon probabilities. The insurance companies are in business to make money. If they are forced to insure all risks, that is the same as redistribution of wealth. Robin Hood does not exist in a free-market, capitalist society. However, such a society allows for the most prosperity and the most freedom for all people.”

sylvabugg2 on May 13, 2014 at 07:42:17

“It should be against the law for an insurance company to drop you for a non preexisting condition. You pay in all that money for all those years and for what? Money down the toilet. Unbelievable.”

“Sterling won't face anyone on his way down because he's filthy rich and hasn't associated with anyone not within his income bracket in over 40 years.

“Considering Jesus was just a man I believe he could have been married. The Bible reminds me of the children's game of Telephone. You start with a story and as it is retold over and over again, it becomes larger than life and very different than the actual first told story. I am sure these stories have some thread of reality to them but have been exaggerated greatly. The Bible was written by scholars and religious elders to keep people in line and not fear what we now know as science (earthquakes, natural events).”
