Yup clogging up the ER and having the hospital pass along the costs to rate payers sounds totally sustainable.
 
2013-08-22 01:24:45 PM  
Because it's cheaper.
 
2013-08-22 01:25:06 PM  
He actually went further than advocating for Romneycare. Jim DeMint advocated for completely universal and mandated coverage, which goes beyond what Romneycare (or Obamacare) does.

DO IT.

Since I'm sure somebody will ask for a citation, here's part of a letter he signed and sent to President Bush in 2007:

"We would like to work with [President Bush] and your administration to pass legislation in this Congress that would ensure that all Americans would have affordable, quality, private health coverage, while protecting current government programs. We believe the health care system cannot be fixed without providing solutions for everyone. Otherwise, the costs of those without insurance will continue to be shifted to those who do have coverage."

Jim DeMint is a horrible person.
 
2013-08-22 01:29:52 PM  
Damn did they ever put a lot of eggs in the "the Supreme Court will obviously strike down Obamacare as unconstitutional" basket.

This is what they're left with.

My wife is a nurse at a hospital emergency room. The amount of people that come in for bullshiat because the ER has to treat them is unreal. It slows down the EMERGENCY room and people that really need treatment cant get it. Her hospital is currently laying off people because they lost $30mil last year. The amount of unpaid ER bills was over $150 mil.
Republicans think this is a fantastic system. It's not.
 
2013-08-22 01:30:23 PM  
Surprise surprise.

Is there any one Republican out there who has a conscience, soul, morals, ethics or anything that would lead me to believe they aren't vile, despicable, maggot-ridden vials of human misery masquerading as meat popsicles?

Look subby, that 's pre-1/20 thinking.

Things were irrevocably changed on January 20, 2008 when Al Quaeda was able to insert a Muslim Terrorist in the White House making Osama bin Laden's dream a reality.

They would spend upwards of 100 billion dollars to make the HNIC look bad.  No, correction: there is no amount of money they wouldn't spend to make Fartbarfburger look bad.

But that involves condoms, vaccines, abortions, and admitting that Obama did something (at least mildly) correct.

So that's a non-starter.

It's farking clownshoes that he's gotten enough bites off of his transparent bullshiat in the last month to become a fixture around here.
 
2013-08-22 01:35:35 PM  
You see, what this is is his views have evolved.  No, evolved is not the right word because he probably does not believe in evolution.  His views have been designed or created in the last five years, coinciding with the election of a Kenyan to be President of the U.S.  That's all you really see here, and it's nothing for DeMint to be ashamed of.

Is Obama for it? They are against it. Doesn't matter what they said in the past. They created the Obama monster. Now they are forced to pretend.

After watching them burn $75,000,000 in taxpayer money to chase down a cum-stained blue dress I realized there was no depth of stupidity and petulance to which the republican party is willing to sink.

The last time I had to go to the emergency room (about 7 year ago), I was amazed at how long I had to wait to get my gaping hand wound stitched up.  "It's cool guy, just wait here and stare inside your hand at the fancy tendons and muscle.  Consider it an educational experience."

If Jim DeMint gets his way, I can have an even more educational experience while waiting behind the uninsured guy with a hamster up his butt.
 
2013-08-22 01:37:57 PM  
Because everybody at the ER works for free and all the medicines are free and the building was free.

One would think a lawyer could craft an argument defending DeMint.

That right there says an awful lot about republicans. You really think it would be a bad thing to admit that a person is capable of reevaluating and evolving their views as time passes? That seems like the sort of thing that would be a negative for you?

Oh I almost forgot to answer your question.

I like to pay my taxes, with them, I buy civilization.

Also only a very very very small portion of my taxes are going towards the Presidents salary. Which I again have no problem pay, civil servants should be paid. Do you disagree?

How about if I admit that he was a pussy until pushed by Biden?

Would that satisfy you?

Now explain how that relates to the Heritage Foundation and Jim DeMint threatening to shut down the US government because Obama and Congress passed a plan invented by the Heritage Foundation, passed by the GOP's last presidential candidate, and supported by Jim DeMint?

So it's trolling in your book to call out "he's a farking asshole who eats babies because he disagrees with a position that the organization he now runs took in the past" for what it was?  I think it's fairly clear that I don't think, or suggest it to be the case, that Obama is/was a knuckledragging homophobe, fwiw.

Or is this whole thing too subtle for your type?

Key word. The only real change to Obamacare is this word to "public"...but that makes all the difference in the world.
