Neither should life, but in this world, (which is the only one we have) it takes money to maintain. do I thing it should be as expensive as it is? no. but I tend to think of it as paying to lengthen your life, without the money, natural selection will take it's course. yes, i am a veteran, yes, i will probably die of some third-world disease when the gubbmint turns it's back on me soon as i run out of money.

From cradle to grave, minoritypoor populations tend to suffer poorer health and get poorer health care than whitewealthy Americans.

Focus on helping the poor and not on race. Cletus deserves benefits as much as Tyrone and Pedro. Being white doesn't automatically make you a healthcare wiz or rich.

Doesn't take 12 years of school and massive debt to be a policeman, unfortunately.

Reduce the time requirements for doctors, lower the cost of schooling, pay them the same starting pay as a policeman and maybe that holy than thou attitude will go away as well.

gunsmack: Wasn't this covered in Obamacare?

/has anyone read that bill yet? It might be in there somewhere


This is in the bill:

Section 4207 of the bill amends the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 to include the guarantee of "a reasonable break time for an employee to express breast milk for her nursing child for 1 year after the child's birth each time such employee has need to express the milk," for nonexempt hourly workers, and also the stipulation that this be done in "a place, other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from co-workers and the public."
 
2011-04-08 02:55:02 PM  
But remember, it's not going to cost a single penny more. They say they have money on hand to pay for this.

Right..........

I can see wanting to help the poor, but once you start attaching race or ethnicity to funding, by definition you are a racist.

Ask yourself this, would you support a program that reimbursed the hospital for Oprah's medical bills and denied a poor white or asian service cuase their skin was not the right color?

There are rich and poor people in every ethnic group. To start a program that reimburses for medical care based on race, not income, is bigotry pure and simple.

Ah, racism sure is great. My favorite selection from the article... minorities make up more than half of all uninsured. So ALL minorities together, make up what I assume is slightly more than half of all uninsured? Well god bless them, lets get them healthy and fark everybody else.

It is nice that the democrats are making jobs for their most loyal activists and community organizers. Also, it is nice that their bills are covered even when Obama is denying military people their pay because he wants us all to chip in on abortions.

If it isn't a product, it can't be sold. But I digress. "Health" is not a product. Health "care" is a service provided by those that perform the service for a fee.

He didn't argue that they should be paid the same as a policeman. But you totally decimated a point that nobody has made. Nice work.

Make any reference to the government at all, in any post, and it seems to draw derp like moths to a flame.

Let's just dissolve the government already. The country is magical and can run itself no problem! Right?

It's common courtesy to chip in, which usually means pay half for these things. If you don't your a real jerk.

if they didn't have 15 farking kids they wouldn't need financial (read: health care) assistance.

Free healthcare for the first 2 kids. You only get healthcare for more of your kids if the first two die.

Perhaps they wouldn't have 15 farking kids if the religious set didn't throw a rabid shiatfit about proper sex education in schools.

Catholicism is also to blame.

Ummmm, so exactly who is the minority? More than half, wouldn't that be the majority?

Then, uh...where the hell does it belong? Or are you advocating anarchy?

Let's see:

Where they live - the government enforces building regulations so your house doesn't fall in on your head, they provide police and firefighters to keep your home safe, and they protect your home from foreign invaders.

Where they labor - government enforces safety laws to ensure workplace injuries are kept to a minimum, they enforce labor laws that keep (or try to keep) greedy owners from exploiting their workers.

Where they learn - government should be out of the business of setting up schools? What? Is that really what you mean?

Where they play - well, let's see, the vast majority of playgrounds are public, government owned and operated property. Then there's also the national parks, designed to both save parts of the country's natural beauty and also give folks places to go.

Where they pray - while I agree the government has no place telling you where or how you should worship, ensuring that everyone CAN worship as they want, or not at all, is one of the foundations of this country.

In other words, you're wrong on every single point.
