NuttierThanEver: Cythraul: vernonFL: [t2.gstatic.com image 347x145]Help![t0.gstatic.com image 232x217]I'm sorry that is a pre-existing condition.Oh come on! How could being stabbed with a Morgul blade by a Naz'Ghul be considered a pre-existing condition?!Sir if you look in the fine print of your policy you can clearly see that on page 15 section 127, subsection C) it states that pre-existing conditions including but not limited to cardiac disease, lyphomas, nicotine related illness and wounds inflicted by scimitar wielding Goblins are not covered!
vernonFL: The Republicans will put forth a version of "Obamacare" that is virtually identical to what was passed in 2009, they just won't call it "Obamacare" Viola!Problem solved.
Rincewind53: "[FreedomWorks's leader Dean Clancy said] 'It's not the Republicans' fault if 25-year-old slackers suddenly are dropped from mom and dad's health insurance policy.'"
PacManDreaming: I begin to wonder if all the Christians in the GOP have ever picked up a Bible
PacManDreaming: I'm still trying to figure out why it's so horrible to make sure your fellow Americans have health insurance.I don't claim to be better than anyone else, but I begin to wonder if all the Christians in the GOP have ever picked up a Bible:Proverbs 31:8-9 "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy."Matthew 25:42-46 "For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.'"They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'"He will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'"Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."
PacManDreaming: I don't claim to be better than anyone else, but I begin to wonder if all the Christians in the GOP have ever picked up a Bible:
Cythraul: It seems there are so many flavors of Christianity
Cythraul: Have you heard of the ever increasingly popular 'Prosperity Doctrine?' It seems there are so many flavors of Christianity, who knows what the hell Jesus would be cool with these days.
Cyberluddite: Conservative advocates are displeased that Republicans are privately weighing a replacement plan that involves reinstating popular elements of the health care law - including its coverage guarantee regardless of pre-existing conditions, the ability to remain on a parent's plan until age 26 and provisions that close the Medicare "doughnut hole."Well, that certainly would fark over health insurance companies--so much so that I wouldn't be surprised if some of them got out of the business. The entire concept of insurance is based on the principle of spreading risks, so the requirement to insure everyone regardless of health history only works if everyone--sick and healthy people alike--buys insurance, because the only way the insurer can feasibly be expected to insure sick people who uses lots of health care is to spread the risk by insuring healthier people who use very little health care.If they are required to insure people with pre-existing conditions, but with no mandate for healthy people to buy insurance, I'd hate to see what kind of exhorbitant premiums they would have to charge for such coverage.
propasaurus: I've said before. Given the chance, Republicans will repeal 'Obamacare.' Then they'll replace it with a nearly identical bill that they'll call something like the "Liberty Freedom Anti-Terrorist Free Market Health Care Act" which keeps practically every facet of 'Obamacare' intact. Then they'll take credit for 'fixing' health care.
Mugato: So is this just going to ping pong back and forth depending which party gets power? Is that how it's going to work?

Serious Black: There's a very good reason health insurance companies refuse to offer individual insurance plans to people with pre-existing conditions: there is literally no way to make these plans actuarially sound. They know too much about how expensive their health care is.
