So basically, whoever designed Rmoney-bot put a xor logic gate at the end of the output? that explains why everything he says is the exact opposite of the previous.

Romney: Here, I made a health insurance mandate. Millions are covered! What an achievement.
Obama: I made a mandate too.
Romney: What a terrible law. I am going to repeal it.
People: Romney has no empathy!
Romney: But my health insurance mandate covered millions! Nothing shows more empathy!

Ricik Santorum has only been right one time in his life by my reckoning.

The day he stood on a stage with all the other GOP nom hopefuls and said that Mitt Romney was (and is) the absolute WORST PERSON EVER to try to carry the "repeal and Replace Obamacare" banner into political battle.

The debates cannot start soon enough.

"I don't believe in a bigger and bigger government,'' he added. "I believe in free people pursuing their dreams. I believe in freedom."

Okay, you can't convince me that wasn't written by a computer program. The only keywords they didn't enter into the quote generator were "children" and "future".

I am confused, wasn't the Affordable Health Care Act considered real health care reform?

We won't be chugging for Rmoney reversing himself on any particular issue, however. Not interested in alcohol poisoning.

Citrate1007: The GOP will replace it with a single payer system and claim it was their idea all along.


And if they did, no one from the Democratic party would be rallying around "we need to repeal this single payer healthcare law'. They would be happy if the GOP did this, give them credit, etc.

Meanwhile, the GOP is upset that Obama passed a Republican idea.

skullkrusher: legislating that others have to care for their neighbors isn't compassion and empathy, dickwad


Is this pedantry? Because even forced compassion is compassion, just not altruistic compassion (which is what people assume). What else would you call it when, at the end of the day, the people who need help have gotten it?

Maimonedes wrote a pretty good summation of the levels of charity, which highlights some of the ways people give help. People who give conspicuously are not as "charitable" as people who provide jobs anonymously, according to Maimo's ranking, but still charitable.

bullshiat - you can't legislate compassion and use that as evidence of how compassionate you are. You might as well say that you get sad when you see a Save the Children commercial

I understand compassion to mean carrying someone else's burden. Suffering alongside someone. Not placing someone's burden on someone else.
 
2012-09-27 11:38:18 AM  
Okay....

1. Making people pay for their own health care isn't what one would call 'empathy'. Given Mittens' history, empathy with 95% of the population is not even in the realm of possibility.
2. This is something you have been treating like kryptonite, even mentioning it turns off the GOP/Teabagger base, something that is not anything even approaching a good idea given that this election looks like it is less about swing voters, and all about turn-out.
3. Then going on stage and saying the national version of that same health care law is somehow exactly what's wrong with the country doesn't exactly make a whole lot of sense. If the Mass idea is so great, then why is the Obama version so bad?
4. And what would you replace it with? Something akin to that Economic-Magic?

skullkrusher: you can't legislate compassion and use that as evidence of how compassionate you are


Oh, that's the sticking point? Yeah, that makes sense. If YOU force ME to give charity, neither of us can really claim to be "compassionate" based on that. Assuming the rule applied to both of us, though, both of us can claim to have given to charity.

// and in order for it to be considered "charity", you have to actually have given something beyond good vibes

He said the uninsured should just go to the ER because they can't be denied service......which is one of the key causes to rising health care cost to begin with.

This is what Romney is proposing the poor should receive in health care.
