    Or, the current version:

    Him: “Well, I got kicked off my insurance because it didn’t include an abortion and contraception clause and didn’t meet the Obamacare standard and I couldn’t afford any of the plans on healthcare.gov so I was going to pay the penality but the IRS didn’t charge me so, now I’m here…”

    Her: Not a problem! We’ll enroll you in an Obamacare plan as soon as the site is up and running. In the meantime have a seat and we’ll make sure you are treated and the government gets a massively overpadded billing for it!

    Health care corporations, like all corporations are out to make a profit, they cut their costs wherever and whenever they can.

    They tell you what doctors you can use, what treatments and medicine the doctors can use, and can (and will) drop you if you become expensive.

    They also can,and do raise their rates whenever they want.

    The simple, sad, fact is that U.S. health care is among the most expensive in the World, and is far from the best.

    If you have a job your health care might be provided, but lose your job, well then you are “dependent on the kindness of strangers.”

    Try that ER stuff when you have cancer, and see how fast they treat you back to your health….

    And if you don’t have a job; tough cheese, hurry up and die? There is that compassionate conservatism we all know and love.

    Read his bio, upper right. Ben, is a true independent skewer of pompous asses. There are just more on the left at the moment.

    I’ll say this for Sargent, at least he sticks by his guns of ignorance. I guess if you repeat this same BS often enough you think it just might become reality.

    “Today the answer would be:
    I had employer insurance that I was happy with. Until Obama said it was inferior and I lost it. Now I have none.
    Oh happy day!”
    .
    How did you know? I lost mine and my wife will lose hers. Unfortunately I don’t drink the lefty Kool Aid or smoke the equivalent in crack to glorify Obama for it.
