(Politifact)   Reince Priebus liked it better back when the unwashed, uninsured masses shied away from the ER because of the crushing medical bills they'd get slapped with. He also wishes the aforementioned claim were true   (politifact.com) divider line 119

Remember: Even though the ER is obligated to stabilize you when you come in regardless of your ability to pay, you're still on the hook for the bill.

You can opt to not pay, but very bad things will happen to your credit.  If you care about that type of thing.

So, 57% of the ERs queried said that wait times had either stayed the same or decreased since the ACA went into effect. And Reincey-boy was using numbers from 2012. Seems about right.

Reince. He looks like the Teddy Boy who was always hanging out at the yacht club, hoping the hot girls would notice him, but he was too afraid to even speak to them. Probably worried about getting guffaws upon introducing himself and giving them his first name.

Wait, wait, wait... I thought the poors were SUPPOSED to go to the ER and clog things up when they got sick. THAT'S the non-Obamacare "safety net" that the Republicans advocated, isn't it?

They'd much prefer that the poors not get any medical care whatsoever. After all, they're poor because God hates them.

They should vote to repeal the ACA again. That'll help.
 
2014-07-08 10:23:38 PM  
At this point, any link between the Affordable Care Act and longer E.R. waiting times is speculative at best, because post-ACA data on wait times do not yet exist.

So not only was his number misleading, it was also the pre-Obamacare number.
Shocked I am.  Truly.

Why is it that the only people in the US who hold their politicians accountable for bald-faced, easily-provable lies are blogs and comedians?

Isn't there *some* space in that 24 hours news cycle?

I mean, yeah, it's funny to share and laugh at politicians being caught in a lie, but with most of the media just giving them a free pass, it's not so much getting "caught" as is "getting noticed".

But when we took a closer look, we found several problems -- including that the alleged 5-hour wait time was measured before the health care law took effect.

Whoa whoa whoa. It's not God's fault poor people are poor. That's their fault. God bestows riches upon upright, moral people, therefore the poors must be lazy sinners.
 
2014-07-08 10:42:41 PM  
Has this guy ever been to an ER in his life? Before ACA in some places, particularly big cities, a 5 hour wait was considered a short wait. But of course if he already knows this he ignored it, just like his supporters will ignore that, because it fits the narrative he is pushing.

I'm not sure if people who condemn wait lines at the ER have ever actually been to an ER. You wait. If you're not profusely bleeding, having spasms, or have bones protruding from your body, you wait. You sit there in agonizing pain waiting for hospital triage to take its course of all the people sitting there with the flu who don't have insurance. This isn't an Obamacare problem in California. It's a problem that the uninsured negatively impact everybody, which is a problem that Obamacare is trying to alleviate.

It's disingenuous and downright idiotic to assume that every hospital worker in California doesn't know how to triage a heart attack over a case of the sniffles, and downright moronic and possibly harmful to declare as a plank of your political positions that everyone admitted to a California hospital will see the same wait times because it's "the average." Some old bag in Orange County is going to die of a stroke because she thought it would take five hours to be admitted, and that's an Reince Priebus's stupidly-named, stupid-ass head.

You know, at this point, I think we should just start noting the times when a GOPer actually tells the truth as opposed to noting their lies.

It would simply just save time and trouble doing it that way and just assuming that mostly everything they say is likely a lie of some sort.

Satanic_Hamster: I wonder if right wingers ever get tired or feel bad about being such liars.


I find it...interesting that when someone who is not one of them mentions an objectively proven fact, it's the objectively proven fact that gets called a lie.

You flatly cannot deal with people who literally think that reality is whatever they've been told to think that week by their media pundits, even if it's the exact opposite of that they were told last week.

Whoa whoa whoa. It's not God's fault poor people are poor. That's their fault. God bestows riches upon upright, moral people, therefore the poors must be lazy sinners.


From the "Acres of Diamonds" speech by the Baptist minister, Union army deserter and founder of Temple University that he made himself rich giving over 6000 times:

"A young man will ask "Don't you sympathize with the poor people?" Of course I do, or else I would not have been lecturing these years. I won't give in but what I sympathize with the poor, but the number of poor who are to be sympathized with is very small. To sympathize with a man whom God has punished for his sins, thus to help him when God would still continue a just punishment, is to do wrong, no doubt about it, and we do that more than we help those who are deserving. While we should sympathize with God's poor-that is, those who cannot help themselves-let us remember there is not a poor person in the United States who was not made poor by his own shortcomings, or by the shortcomings of some one else. It is all wrong to be poor, anyhow.

(emphasis added)

Conservatives have been trying to salve their greedy consciouses with that claim for over a century, but it hasn't gotten any less false.

Stop lying, Reince.  I hope that everytime you think about the potential GOP presidential primary lineup for 2016, your bleeding stomach ulcers become plasma sprinklers.
