I now support Obamacare even more.

SINGLE PAYER DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY

"Been on Obamacare" refers to what, exactly?  Buying insurance from the evil companies who sell plans through it?  Congratulations on getting on board with single payer!

before you libtards get all huffy, keep in mind that obongocare offers discount/free contraception which, if available, would have prevented inhofe from existing in the first place

Don't Senator's get socialized government-provided health care?

This

Almost Everybody Poops: SINGLE PAYER DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY


Also this

And... "socialized medicine"?  We're getting socialized medicine?  When's that happening?

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Yup, hell it's so good it's kept Cheney moving.

Jim Imoffmymeds said what now?

Wow, they are really scared that people are gonna find out they've been lied to over this for so long.

The GOP aren't really going to talk themselves into single payer over this, are they? It almost seems like the worlds biggest reverse psychology at this point.

No, as soon as their base stop being outraged over the novelty of it, and get used to it, they'll fight to the death to keep it exactly like it is, except cutting medicare for the lower income brackets.

So they looked up his ass and found his heart? Sounds about right.
 
2013-10-22 12:32:30 PM  
So... I didn't read the article, but can somebody tell me why having insurance where they can't kick you off for pre-existing conditions kill somebody? Please don't tell me he's just using hyperbole to equate this to socialized medicine. My frail little sensibilities just wouldn't be able to take it!
 
2013-10-22 12:32:41 PM  
Its like these idiots think their insurance card says "Provided by Obamacare" on it.  And this will keep them from getting the help they need.
 
2013-10-22 12:33:13 PM  
When I opened the article it just read "I want attention and donations." Not sure if anyone else read it differently.
 
2013-10-22 12:33:31 PM  
This sounds sooooo familiar.....I can't quite put my cursor on it......
 
2013-10-22 12:35:50 PM  
Inhofe represents a state than has 22% uninsured.

So basically, he's saying that if those 22% had access to health care, his doctor may not have had time for him. So it's ok for THEM to die, but we almost lost an important person here.

Inhofe - proof you can too get pregnant from butt sex.

The guy has government provided healthcare.  smh

/my senator
//What comes after him will be worse
 
2013-10-22 12:37:52 PM  
I wonder if he realizes there are 1.5 milliion federal employees who get free, "socialized" medical care. What's worse, all their spouses and children get the same free care.

Conservatives hate people like that!
 
2013-10-22 12:38:22 PM  
So.... gold-plated, taxpayer funded Congressional healthcare plans for everyone? Sounds good to me!
 
2013-10-22 12:38:41 PM  
Remember - Inhofe requires uninsured soles in order to survive.
 
2013-10-22 12:38:46 PM  
He'd be in the same boat with the poors!
The horror!
 
2013-10-22 12:39:24 PM  
Ya know, if we took the people who believe in "death panels" and sent them to death panels, we could get something done in this country instead of having retards clog the discourse.

"And so the message there is, you know I say this to all of your American listeners, let's hold onto what we've got here," he said. "You know, you are talking to someone right now who probably wouldn't be here if we had socialized medicine in America."

I hate assholes like this. His job provides him with freaking fantastic insurance. How about all the people who have suffered because of no insurance? I bet more people have died because of a lack of insurance than those who have suffered because of socialized medicine.

csb time: My friend's dad owns a very small environmental compliance company. I'm not sure how many employees they have right now, but I think it is something like 6 or 7.

In the early days, back when the company had 3 employees (the dad, his business partner, and my friend) they provided a stipend for medical care, which was awesome for my buddy because his wife is a teacher so it was cash in their pocket.

But, they hired a 4th employee and unfortunately he has a prior condition (Crohn's) and couldn't pick up any private insurance. My friend's dad is a decent guy, so he decided that his employee should be covered. So they got a small group plan even though all 3 other employees had good insurance. Friend's dad was covered from his retirement at a municipal water district, business partner was covered through his CalPers retirement, and friend through his wife.

So remind me again how good the previous system was...

Barry's trolling the long game.
Sometime in 2015 we'll see him come out and say "FINE!  FARK IT!  If you assholes are so against helping health insurance sell affordable product and increasing their consumer base by millions then we'll just go to single payer.  You've pushed me and pushed me and pushed me.  I surrender - let's set the medicare enrollment age to 0"

We need a "believes in death panels" checkbox on patient charts that is the same checkbox as DNR.

It's a web site!  It's a disease cure!It's a tax!It's a gateway to socialism!Obamacare is everything and more! It's the horrible jerking motion of a teen trying to drive a stick for the first time! It's leaves in your gutter! It's cat puke on the rug! Obamacare is a paper cut sauced with lemon juice! It's going to bed with your contacts in! It's looking for D-size batteries at the store hours before a blizzard hits! Obamacare is like raaaaiiiinn on your wedding dayyyyyy! It's several people talking to you at once while you are on the phone!
 
2013-10-22 12:43:37 PM  
So he still has to buy insurance from a private company? Great, nothing much has changed.
 
2013-10-22 12:44:46 PM  
If the Democrats really wanted to play hardball during the shutdown - the Senate should have introduced a single payer system to replace Obamacare.
 
2013-10-22 12:45:29 PM  
"Obamacare will put so many more people into the health care system that it will lead to rationing which will lead to death panels"

Remember people: anytime you see someone say that, you should respond with "Doesn't that mean that a lot of people didn't have access to the health care system before Obamacare?"

And the downside to that would be?

Uh, yeah, but all those people were dying of natural causes and not being told they HADto die. See, if you give them health insurance and they are told they are dying, that takes away their freedom to die on their own without being told. Do you hate freedom?

Conservatives would then say he's ignoring the unborn but neglect to set the age to -9 months.
