Bloody William: See Boobies.
mhd: "Americans should be strongly encouraged to buy continuous coverage over their adulthood. Then insurance companies would not be permitted to jack up their premiums if a member of their family develops a costly condition."Yeah, because health care providers are all about "valued customers".
Bloody William: See Boobies. Doesn't address the cost.
NewportBarGuy: "Americans should be strongly encouraged to buy continuous coverage over their adulthood. Then insurance companies would not be permitted to jack up their premiums if a member of their family develops a costly condition."Um, yeah. What the f*ck do you think the goal of ACA is? Are you that stupid?
Wyalt Derp: It's essentially the same thing, but with a more palatable name.
Robots are Strong: " on Tue, 07/03/2012 - 6:50pm.The problem with Obamatax, it has nothing to do with health care, it has to do with controlling insurance. The reason insurance keeps going up is because the cost of health care keeps going up. Does Obamatax prevent hospitals from charging $3 per tylenol, when you can buy a bottle of 250 for $12? Does it stop a hospital from charging $1000 a day for a bed, when you can rent a 3 bedroom house for a month for that much? Does it stop a cardiologist from charging $100 for an EKG on a machine that cost him $300, and was paid for with just the patients on the first day he received it? It also doesn't stop pharmacy companies from charging us $150 per month for a pill they sell in the rest of the world for $30 a month. Why do pills cost so much? Because they spend millions of dollars on tv ads trying to convince us to demand our doctors give us that new pill, whose side effect are usually 5 times as bad as what the pill is preventing."Why the hell so you think those costs are what they are you farking retard? Also, of course they have a plan. Their plan was developed by conservative think tanks and first implemented by a republican governer. It's now commonly known as "Obamacare".
Bloody William: Let's be fair, it's not the same thing. It's much, much less.
animal color: Mods,WND and Newsbusters are not credible sources of information or opinion. They are derp factories. They don't provide a counterbalance to newspapers and television stations. They are the pooh-flinging apes of the media world, and pretending they represent the logical opposite to Maureen Dowd or David Brooks makes you look like you fling pooh too.Geebus. There aren't two sides to every issue. There are a million facets. You present two of them, diametrically opposed, so you can claim you are fair. Your predictable selection of stories for troll-tastic inspiration and artificial balance makes you no better than the news organizations you mock.
Wyalt Derp: Half the problem with this thing is that the Narcissist-in-Chief chose to name it after himself.
Coolfusis: Clicked so ya'll don't have to:1) Tax cuts2) Personal responsibility3) Make poor medicaid people buy their own insurance, dammit.4) Hack up medicaire into various levels. The good levels would require that you pay for it personally5) Tax cuts, raise the retirement age. WORK TILL YOU DIE, PEONS.
rohar: Bloody William: See Boobies. Doesn't address the cost.We don't want to address the cost of boobies. I swear I've spent more on them than health care in my life.
Martian_Astronomer: Without reading the article or the thread, I'm guessing it's "Cut taxes for the rich so that they can create more jobs for poor people so that they can buy health insurance." Am I close?
