Yeah, she's a nurse. Sure she is.
 
2010-03-21 11:15:09 PM
Why are people so farking stupid?

Don't they realize that this is only a dog-and-pony show for the masses and that true reform is but an illusion.

They didn't fixed nor passed anything major, they're just propping us for the next bubble, and this bubble is currently 17% of GDP, can't wait to see what mess this makes when it pops.

DamnYankees: This is now the 5th longest thread in Fark history, and the longest Fark thread ever about a normal topic. The top 4 have 2 "last post" threads and 2 hot women threads.

Well that settles it, we'll have to ALSO turn this into a last post AND hot chick thread. I'll start:

Bootstrappy 20 year old without insurance hates reform.

Hey kid, I hate having to pay for your surgery after you break leg. Oh, you'll never have an accident or illness? Awesome!

Eddie T. Head: In late,

So, has anyone's door been kicked in by jack-booted thugs coming to take their elderly relatives to face the Death Panalstm yet?

/back to lurking


don't be ridiculous, we know it's happening but obviously those people can't post an answer to your question
 
2010-03-21 11:15:33 PM
yeah, you little shiats!! all you got to do is go out there and work.

/this nurse is a dumbass....
 
2010-03-21 11:15:41 PM
Hello I'm a nurse and I don't understand who pays for the uninsured in the emergency room.
 
2010-03-21 11:15:41 PM
TwelveToneRow: What a goddamned tool that 20 year old guy was.

"I don't have insurance, and that's my choice! Not getting sick is my choice too! I'll get cancer when I want to get it!"


Oh, there's a fantastic reason for putting people like that on the air, but it isn't to help the caller make his point.
 
2010-03-21 11:15:42 PM
Insurance, what is insurance? Jeez, and shes a nurse?
 
2010-03-21 11:15:52 PM
Vanetia: So is the server back now?

"We take care of our patients whether they have insurance or not."

You think that's going on for free, lady?


No doubt. It's not the quality of care, it's the coverage.

Hey, an informed high school caller to CSPAN. Is that a first? Go her!

17-year-old high school senior: Why are we worrying about health care right now when there are other things to do first?
 
2010-03-21 11:16:08 PM
Yeah, those crazy Dems making people think that they don't have health insurance. Just get a job that offers health insurance you loser! derp
 
2010-03-21 11:16:08 PM
17 year old girls calling CSPAN? I call BS.
 
2010-03-21 11:16:08 PM
I'm not opposed or supporting, but we shouldn't do this now.
 
2010-03-21 11:16:12 PM
bberg: Ardilla: So..... What'd I miss?

House passed the Senate version of the bill. House is voting now (and has required votes already) to not amend the Senate version of the bill. In 5ish minutes the House will vote on the "Reconciliation", changes made to the bill by the leadership of House/Senate.


Which means Obama has the whip. He can sign the approved Senate version regardless OR he can hold it to see if some better bill is generated.

"Hello. I'm a nurse, and I'm an authority on this issue. Also I'm really really really farking stupid."

"Hello. I'm a senior in High School and I'm a moron because I haven't been paying attention at all to the economy or the health care system."
 
2010-03-21 11:16:18 PM
Why now, Michelle?

It's been standard in other civilized countries for years. We're behind the times.

17-year-old girl asks why we have to do this now, when it will land on her generation. As a member of her generation, we have to do this now, so that it does not land on our generation.
 
2010-03-21 11:16:24 PM
Haha, this caller can't even vote.
 
2010-03-21 11:16:30 PM
DoctorCal: Obama is going to tell us when we can or can not sleep.

Bwaaaaaahahahahaha.


Host: "Are you insured?"
Caller: "No...by choice though."
 
2010-03-21 11:16:36 PM
Ok I admit I'm an idiot. I'm not entirely sure what's going on and I don't want to do the whole "up in arms" thing either way until I understand what just happened.

Can someone explain to me exactly what this bill does? Everyone gets health care now? How much do we pay?

EchoMike: Witchydiva: Offer for a year's worth of TF to the farker who gets the fark.com shout-out on C-SPAN stands. Will ship you bbq or wing sauce if you mention lemonparty.org too.

I accept that challenge, and I'm trying to get through to C-SPAN right now.


Awesome. Standing offer through tonight's coverage.
 
2010-03-21 11:16:43 PM
That nurse should blow it out her ass. My mother-in-law is an RN who used to work at the VA, and at a private hospital before that, and she is all for this bill.
 
2010-03-21 11:16:44 PM
Weaver95: Fjornir: Ardilla: So..... What'd I miss?

Pelosi bungling the biggest speech of her career.

i'll watch it on youtube when I get home. it'll make good rebuttal footage for those idiots who were saying she's a 'great leader' waaaaaay up thread.


It wasn't that bad at all.

And she is largely responsible for this passing. Whether you agree with it or not, you cannot deny that she got her house in order, pun intended.

Now a seventeen year old girl! Let's hear what the five year old has to say too!

"Why can't this wait another twenty years?"

Man, tell that shiat to Teddy Roosevelt, biatch.

God, how many completely uninformed idiots watch CSPAN?
 
2010-03-21 11:16:53 PM
17-year-old who like doesn't get why this is like such an important issue that like the Democrats can't take care of it in 20 years ok?

We wouldn't want to deny her her first car or case of booze because obamacare will tell her where and which blanket to sleep under.

Renowned transvestite sexologist: RockChalkH1N1: There are other factors than providing health care. I think most Republicans are against having the government taking control

They aren't consistent with that philosophy. When they use religious beliefs to address other legislation that restricts human behavior they are using the government to take control. If they were strict in their idea of limiting federal government and instead relying on states to determine their own destiny, I would think they were acting in a credible way. They don't work that way. When they want to stop people from acting in a non-biblical way, they have no problem using the power of the federal government.

We're talking about the same party that made the largest expansion to government controlled healthcare and left it 100% unfunded. They bonded it out and decided to not pay for it at all. They have NO credibility when talking about healthcare.



Yeah, the GOP needs to drop the whole religion thing

TheOther: Which means Obama has the whip. He can sign the approved Senate version regardless OR he can hold it to see if some better bill is generated.

Yup. It's been passed by the House and Senate. It's on his desk for approval or veto.

She's not SOTH because of her speaking skills. There is more than one definition of the term, lad.

A 17 year old says we should take care of health care 20 years from now... What a dumb coont.

ra-ra-raw: ra-ra-raw: TheNyquilKid: Anyone brave enough to check freeperland and tell us what's going on?

This is the freeper quote that pretty much sums up what is going on:

To: veracious
I would think most all of us got spoiled, fat and content, too secure to even think that we could be so undermined by our own people in government.

We let the government educate our kids, and they learned all the wrong stuff. We let them interfere in our private lives, keep creating programs and taxing us more, and those who fought against it were too few. Now we have to fight back in every way possible and it won't be won at the ballot box, because they will steal it like they did in 08. ACORN probably now is tripled in numbers.

And we will have to overthrow them soon, before Barry alOsama creates a crisis of some kind in order to invoke Martial Law.

I must be dreaming--I keep thinking maybe all or most of the Republicans will just get up and physically start kicking @ss, pull guns on the Dems, and march them out of the House, out of the WH. Yeah...i'm dreaming, or crazy.

As a member of Generation X, we needed to do it 30 years ago, and 20 years ago, and 10 years ago.

We've put it off too long.
