    Idiots Explosive Deception

    I never thought I’d see the day when Republicans argued for free medical care delivered by emergency rooms, while Democrats argued that the poor should be forced to pay. Then I read (and understood, which seems to make me unique) the transcripts of the debate on the Affordable Health Care Act. Which is rather throughly misnamed, as it does nothing to make health care affordable, it just forces insurance companies to do something about it. Actually understanding how hospital bills are created and what the charges are is very nearly a PhD level subject. And that’s pathetic.

    We should have universal healthcare like other nations have.
    And yes I’ve heard all the tedious RWNJ talking points against it.

    Well, naturally. It is a Republican plan, something they were very willing to claim until Obama took it up as a desperate attempt to get SOMETHING passed. Obama’s first choice was a single-payer program — and in fact if we simply extended Medicare to the whole population it would be much cheaper. His second choice, people seem to have forgotten, was a nonprofit, self-funding, government-backed insurance company, which the insurance industry lobbied against, with the help of their supposedly “free-market” allies, the GOP.

    Well, Ima, why don’t you ask Darrell Issa about his recently introduced bill H776? He has now “decided” that the Federal Health Benefits plan should be open to non-federal employees. Sure sounds like government health insurance to me! (Federal Times, issue delivered 3/7/13)

    Obamacare is a really, really big deal. Not perfect, and still the most expensive in the world, but it’s the free-market solution to a serious problem that kills over 40,000 Americans a year. If you’ve got your own solution Ima (just kidding! of course you don’t!) we’d love to hear it. “Stay healthy, but if you don’t stay healthy, die quickly before you bankrupt your family.”

    Maybe Obama’s plan was to make Obamacare, which was the Republicans’ initial proposal, so distasteful to them that they fight it and eventually propose universal health care themselves. Kind of like having that coworker or boss who won’t agree to anything unless you make it sound like they came up with the idea themselves.

    I just finished scanning the Paul Ryan budget and it’s as much an unrealistic wish list as is the one by the Congressional Progressive Caucus’. No real numbers in either one but a lot of hype. What planet are these Congressmen and Senators from? Good Grief.

    “Go Ryan.”

    And don’t stop. We’ll close the door behind you.

    NOT free, paid for with the help of tax payer money. Far better use for it than filling the coffers of the military/industrial complex.

    Obama said it was his “first choice” but he threw it away before negotiations.

    Got nothing intelligent to say. Again? Both of you keep throwing name insults. Very childish and useless both of you on that.

    No Pres. Obama was secretly all for it since he thinks like the Republicans do. But then oligarchs on both sides are Plutocrats.
