    The joke is that the first two are clearly, obviously fictional, but the guy in the third panel is too dumb to realize that one isn’t.

    What’s Romney-Obamacare turning into? A local Doctor? A local Nurse?
    Lord, lord, finally I’m convinced, Holbert: Healthcare insurance for the poor and the underclass truly IS a horror. No more. Send the sick and the dying, the feverish and infected to the Emergency Rooms where Doctor Rush, Nurse Glen, and Specialist Fox-A-Lot says they belong.

    Well, some of us here think that government should not be taking over healthcare. Government’s main responsibility is to defend our nation and promote the general welfare, not provide the general welfare.

    Government is not taking over health care, they’re regulating insurance. And if you bother to actually read the whole constitution, you’ll see that while the preamble says “promote” the general welfare, article 1 section 8, Duties of Congress, says “provide”.

    Your extreme ideology is getting in the way of the facts. Government also has a regulatory responsibility. Government has not taken over health care, but is regulating for the general welfare of the people.

    Hillary would have been a step up but she would have been worse then Jimmy Carter also.

    Extreme is advocating for the status quo that allowed 44,000 to die annually of treatable conditions and around 100,000 annually to declare medical bankruptcy because of the cost or the unavailability of affordable health care coverage. That’s a lot of human suffering you are accepting in the interests of defending an ideology.

    First Palin never said that, You quoted Tina Fey, Palin said “My Neighbors can see Russia from their houses”, which is true. When asked about the Bush doctrine it was like seven years later Also, Bush Doctrine changed after 9/11. So you use two confusing points to prove your point

    From Wikipedia:
    “The Bush Doctrine is a phrase used to describe various related foreign policy principles of the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush. The phrase was first used by Charles Krauthammer in June 2001 to describe the Bush Administration’s “unilaterally withdrawing from the ABM treaty and rejecting the Kyoto protocol.”1 After 9/11 the phrase described the policy that the United States had the right to secure itself against countries that harbor or give aid to terrorist groups, which was used to justify the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan."12

    This is why I find liberalism to be a Religion, it is OK to say or do anything because, you are a liberal and liberals are good, while conservatives are bad and you can criticize conservatives as bad with anything for any reason. This is the basis for just about everything you post here, goinvnacaysoon was talking about Hillary and instead of defending Hillary you attacked Sarah Palin, is a great example.

    You could have easily defended Hillary Clinton but instead you thought an attack would be more effective.

    The left will do what it likes, like giving twice the time on Michelle Obama’s fiftieth birthday party twice the time as Benghazi and giving more time to the 100% insecure website of Obama Care. These are the issues we should be concerned about.

    Sure, the health industry is 1/6 the economy, but that does not mean that ACA is a “takeover.” If the government HAD taken over the health care system, then Obama could have prevented insurance companies from deciding to drop coverage, but because insurance companies are still a private industry completely under their own control, he couldn’t. Would you PREFER a government take over? Then speak up.

    by your own standards, conservatism is a religion.

    “……for the status quo that allowed 44,000 to die annually of treatable conditions”Out right liberal LIE! ……."
    Source is from a study by Harvard Medical School and Cambridge Health Alliance. I presume the study does not fit your ideological bias.

    Health care is not insurance. Insurance is most certainly not health care. And the fact that many people make assumptions of equivalency is why most debates about health care are worthless.

    Government has no place promoting health care and taking it’s focus off of creating more wars, killing more kids (on both sides) and disabling a few hundred thousand additional troops!!!
