    Don’t worry, the Republicans are working on taking that away too. They live for the day when only people like Ted Cruz can be legislators.

    Exactly, why would this heartless creature need a cardiologist?

    I don’t know about Florida, but politicians who serve in DC get some amazing benefits and exclusions from laws that, depending on how long they stay in office, can follow them long after they leave office to work for the very people whose donations kept them in office.
    We need congress to work on the ACA and make it a product that will have long lasting positive impact on our nation. It can be done if politicians will care more about their oaths of office than their access to campaign dollars and making the "other party " look bad.

    Could the righties on here explain these things for me, so I can understand your position better?

    1. Why do you want insurance companies to be able to deny coverage for pre-existing conditions?

    2. Why is it bad to require insurance companies to spend at least 80% of insurance premiums on actual health care, as opposed to executive salaries and bonuses?

    3. Why is it bad for dependents to be able to stay on their parents’ policy until age 26, instead of making them get more expensive care at a younger age?

    4. Why do you like lifetime insurance caps?

    5. Why is it better to have millions of people uninsured who then use emergency rooms for routine care, costing far more?

    Thanks in advance for explaining these things, so we can understand why you hate Obamacare so much.

    Good people do not get sick, only welfare scum.
    Giving them the same care as I get diminishes me.
    If it all was equal how could folks tell I am superior? The sores and ill health are their badge, it keeps them in their place.

    I don’t have much hope, R. Troll. At the risk of spamming this is the third health care thread I’ve posted them on, and not one of the usual gang of righties has responded.

    On the other hand, how could they?

    Nevertheless, I’ll keep monitoring all three threads just in case.

    ^
    Next time, include a question on whether Ted Cruz is constitutionally eligible to be president.

    You’ll get the same deafening silence.

    @Anthony 2816

    Republicans/Fox “news” viewers will not answer because their answers are embarrassing:
    -
    They do not want our health care system to be improved. Their own health care is just fine and they do not care if the health of the citizenry as a whole improves.
    -
    Their only proposed ‘improvements’ are to allowed insurance companies to sell across state lines, (which will result in them all moving to one state with no regulations, like the credit card industry), and to eliminate medical liability lawsuits, which at least sometimes holds medical malpracticers accountable.
    -
    And besides, hatred of Obama is more important than the interests of the country and its citizens.

    I read today that Ted Cruz gets his health care coverage on his wife’s policy with her employer, Goldman Sachs, who pay about $40,000 a year for their coverage.

    @coraryan

    Living in Ohio must really be bad then. Here in the conservative hated California my wife and I have both been on Medicare now for the last 5 years, and so far the only thing we have needed to pay for is some very reasonable copay on our prescription medications. I must admit that Medicare does not pay dental, and that we have a somewhat higher copay for glasses, but over all here in California we seniors have it pretty good as far as health care goes. concerned on Medicare. But then, the average senior has paid into the system for some 40 to 50 years or more, so it is NOT welfare at all!!

    After reading Anthony’s statement about Ted Cruz’s wife working for Goldman Sachs, I finally had some time to confirm and she does.

    ^
    Because of what I’ve learned about Goldman Sachs since 2008, I find this relationship between Mr. Cruz and Goldmans Sachs, the provider of his healthcare, disturbing. Despite evidence of mismanagement by people in G-S OTHER than Ms. Cruz, no one in that company has been punished and efforts by the President to more tightly regulate Goldman and other financial companies has been blocked by Republicans as well as a few Dems.
    ^
    In addition, Goldman is manipulating aluminum prices, a metal precious to our military, our corporations, and home builders.

    ^
    I am not making accusations of culpability. I congratulate Ms. Cruz on her success in an industry wherein men dominate. I do believe that Mr. Cruz has a vested interest in Goldman’s continued success that makes some of his actions in the senate suspect. When Clarence Thomas’s wife was working for the Heritage foundation on issues that Justice Thomas failed to recluse himself and on which he voted, I was equally concerned about her 400k salary and Mr. Thomas’s objectivity.
    This revelation is disturbing to me. While I do not have time to research it at the moment, I welcome my conservative friends to provide equal citations of similar appearances of conflict among the Democrats. I know some exist, I just don’t have time to do the research.
    Too many are warning the “Too big to fail or prosecute” financial institutions have slipped into the same behaviors that created the last financial crisis and one can only wonder how many legislators are helping set these dominos up for another fall.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    I have not seen NeoconMan for a while.
    If I make him wince hard enough with poor imitation maybe he will come back.
    .
    Or have the extremists gone past what even he can stomach?
