In the other words Mitchell McConnelly has done the last ride of the Riverdancing and has now decided to be the person who likes for the suffering of sick individuals who cannot obtain the medical caring.  Listen Mitchell McConnelly I have the understanding that you do the representation of the derpvidiuals of the district of you who has the silliness of doing the election of you to the federal office of the congressional district of senate but I do not wish for telling you one more time the Supreme Court has done the speaking of this so perhaps unless you feel that the tears of you will cause the curing of the kids with cancer and the people with the preexisting conditionings then you can just stop being such the whiny biatch and move on with the life of you because you are the skank.

You are welcome.

jigger: Serious Black: Here's a novel thought: why don't the Republicans in Congress work with the Democrats also in Congress to make the law better and ensure it is smoothly implemented?

They tried. Multiple times. The Democrats were having none of it.


"Full repeal" is not making the law better and smoothly implemented, you disingenuous toad.

Ned Stark: Remember when liberals mocked Republicans for such a terrible terrible idea?

Good time.


The fact of the matter is that it only works if everyone's invested in the system and if the pricing of the providers within th system is set fairly and reasonably.  If you start cherry picking risk pools, and applying free market principles to a service that has extremely inelastic demand, you end up with a recipe for disaster.

There are any number of laws, rules and regulations I would like to "exempt" myself from, but no matter how many times I tell the IRS, the FBI, the Health department, and the vice squad, they insist that I am NOT exempt.

Huh.

jigger: Or you can recognize that it will make all the problems associated with health insurance worse and that going back to the shiatty situation before would be incremental reform.


Or, the GOP could have voted on their preferred option in 1995, after the Republican sweep.
Or in 1996.
Or in 1997.
Or in 1998.
Or in 1999.
Or in 2000.
Or in 2003.
Or in 2004.
Or in 2005.
Or in 2006.

Which, oddly enough, is exactly what didn't happen.

You just agreed that the status quo ante was a horrible shiatty situation, right?  But, considering a decade of inaction, you have to assume the Republicans liked the shiat-show we had. 'Repeal it and we'll come up with something better, really this time' doesn't hold any water.

There is a common sense irrefutable logic to single-payer:

1) you cannot deny emergency health care to those who can't pay
2) the only fair way to pay for this is Government
3) government should pay for everyone's emergency health care, because it is unfair that only people with money should have to pay for their emergency care in addition to the taxes they pay
4) for various public health reasons and lower cost associated with preventative care,it becomes economical to extend this approach to all basic health care

There's no reason you can't personally exempt yourself from Obamacare, it's easy to get the results.  First, regardless of what your insurance premium is billed at, pay your insurer +30% more each year.  Then, when your cancer is discovered and you begin treatment, underbill your insurer so you cover more of the cost and they pay out less than 80% of their take in claims.  After a couple months of that, call your insurer and cancel your policy because you had a pre-existing condition, saddling you with the entirety of the bills.

Viola!  Life without Obamacare, and you can take the personal responsibility to make it all happen for yourself if you're patriot enough.  All the Real Americans are doing it.

So... lets leave the profit takers in the loop and make it illegal to drop out of the market? Lets incentivize making sure healthcare is as expensive as possible?

Good times.

Do you remember why it was "terrible?"

It was because we could, at the time at least, do better. Not "OMG socialisms."

cubic_spleen: I wish I could favorite you a million times.


I think this is the possibility if you remove me from the favorite list then do the readding for 999,999 times.  Much like the 999,9999 people who will now get the treatment of the hemorrhoids of they thanks to the care from Mister John Wayne Barack Saddam Hussein Obamalamadingdong.
