Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: the_geek: Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: Unless you plan on dying prematurely, and suddenly, you will eventually become an old, sick person eventually.

Yep, and I'll pay my bills when I get there.

You're calling an extra $100 a month today getting "screwed."

Somehow I doubt your financial foresight has taken into account your end-of-life costs.


Half of ALL medical spending occurs in the last year of life.

As a 50 year old man with a spotless driving record, I'm tired of my insurance premiums subsidizing you 20 somethings who can't stay out of car wrecks with your texting while driving and such.

So I guess we are even. Now buy your damn healthcare and shut up.

jjorsett: MFK: Just asking: have the Democrats ever done this sort of thing to any Republican legislation or are we in uncharted waters with this crap?

Name some GOP legislation that hosed this number of people this badly this visibly for this long and into the foreseeable future. Obama staked his reputation and legacy on "this crap" and blew it really really really really really badly, and now he and his Democrat confreres are going to have it hung around their necks for as long as it continues to be an issue, which is to say, forever.

jjorsett: And as long as we're on the subject: yes, the ACA is worse than those wars. Millions of people are losing their coverage and/or losing access to doctors and drugs that they depended on to help manage their health


Whereas the health insurance system we had before this covered oh so many people and everything was just great.

jjorsett: Kibbler: Talk to some vets of the Afghan and Iraq wars.

Felgraf: Operation Irqai Freedom.

Evidently you guys forget that the Democrats voted for both of those wars. They may have later gotten buyer's remorse, but it's too late to revise history and try to say it was only the GOP.

And as long as we're on the subject: yes, the ACA is worse than those wars. Millions of people are losing their coverage and/or losing access to doctors and drugs that they depended on to help manage their health. A significant number of them will suffer and possibly even die as a result. Bad as those wars might be, the men and women fighting them at least signed up voluntarily. The ACA is hurting an order of magnitude more people, people who never volunteered for what's happening to them.


So, because some democrats voted for it, it completely absolves the republicans who ran it, administered it, and completely farked it up?

Is that how it works?

There is just so much derp in that response that it's hard to even know where to begin.  You're really hopeless.

Karac: Assume for just a second that every bad thing you've ever heard about Obama is the God's-honest-truth. That he was born in Kenya. That he's bent on destroying America. That he's a communist plant by the Reptilians. That Obamacare includes death panels which go and shoot your grandmother in the head. Even if all of that was true, does any of it mean that an insurance company won't try to screw you right in the asshole, no lube, at every opportunity?


Unpossible.  What's good for Big Business is good for everybody.

That's actually not a bad hand in texas hold 'em, at least if the first 3 cards give you some hope.

I assumed that was blackjack, and the GOP decided to stay on those two cards.


.....although one of the cards would have been face up, if it were blackjack.

Trivia Jockey: I fear the GOP is going to take seats in these midterms.

It's going to get much, much worse before it gets better.

[www.scenicreflections.com image 350x250]


This is really going to screw with my generation, as we can't find jobs to begin with.  Also, fully expecting my reproductive rights to be kicked out the door if the GOP wins seats.  Seriously America, is that what you want?!?!
I'd really just like a stable, well-paying job, but maybe that's me.

Talk to some vets of the Afghan and Iraq wars.  But no you're right, health insurance reform is way worse.

And then there was Jimmy Carter setting a program that gave free houses to brown people, knowing full well that it would take 35+ years to actually do its damage and crater the economy.

What's even funnier is they consider their base - or the base considers itself - to be the overwhelming majority.
