    Yep, the conservative way — let the poor die, because if their lives were worth anything, they’d have money like we do. Obamacare is going to work fine in Colorado, because we have Democrats in government who want the public insured. (On the other hand…. the entire Colorado congressional delegation has asked for federal assistance for the flood repairs, which is very nice. But what I just learned is that every last Republican in the Colorado delegation voted DOWN assistance for Hurricane Sandy. I’m sincerely hoping that the rest of the country is more charitable than our conservative @$$holes were.)

    Got a sick kid? Send him to the Emergency Ward? Got arthritis? Off to the Emergency Ward. Pneumonia? Emergency Ward. Miss a period? Emergency Ward. Measles? Emergency Ward. Emergency is 4 or 5 times as expensive, but it ISN’T Romney-Obama Care so THAT’S the way to go. Rush Limbaugh tells us so.

    Have you noticed ,everyone that will receive subsidies to buy insurance is for Obamacare is for it.Those who will have to pay 3 or 4 times as much for their own coverage and all the subsidies too are against it.
    More and more taxes being demanded from an ever shrinking labor force.
    The best way to make the unemployment figures go down is to stop counting the half the unemployed.
    What could go wrong.?

    For once Varvel got it right. The elephants are no help at all.

    Meanwhile in Florida, healthcare services are hiring more people.
    Gov Rick Scott, who turned down $51 billion in federal money to implement Obamacare and opposed letting navigators tell people how to sign up, is taking credit for creating jobs.

    I’ll agree it would be nice to have a new leader, but I have to ask myself…who does the right have that could do any better? Or for that matter who does the left have that will do any better?

    It doesn’t matter who wins the next election. Both the parties are packed with radical nut jobs who would rather everyone else die than their personal ideology be compromised.

    The train from Fairbanks to Wasilla goes through the Denali Park. When younger I rode this train twice a year to the farm.
    Some trips the train would smoosh over 20 moose.
    This seemed like a lot of moose and worried folks. An aerial survey was done and it turns out these moose getting hit were too small a percentage to worry about so nothing was done.
    Today maybe one moose gets hit per trip, maybe. Seems that the small percentage that stood on the tracks got smooshed and the rest of the moose do not stand in front of trains.
    Natural selection at work. After watching the last presidential election I figured the republicans know they are wrong and this is their way of helping America suffer less by party suicide.
    Hurts less than a lingering death I guess.

    Socialism? Well helping out the corporate insurance might be looked upon as fascistic. Right wing not left in this case. However if helps 30 million more people than our present arrangement. It bails our the corporations to help more people they would otherwise allow to suffer and die. Isn’t that worth it?

    Back in the days of the Eugenics craze, with the USA leading the way, it was found that the lowest 10% was a drag so they wanted to sterilize them first. Some wanted death chambers. The Nazis liked the ideas and used them where other countries would not like the USA. (We still had some laws for people then.)
    Now we are seeing the cheap way by simply letting them die. Then making their family pay for the disposal. No fuss, no muss for the elites.

    Colorado is a seat of Right Wing Libertarianism and hard core Christians.
