    OK, had to Google it; NZ Climate Change Denier seems to be the main find (coal researcher; hint). Keep denying, as you cruise through the Northwest Passage, Doc! Or catch those icebergs calving off Antarctica…

    Vincent Gray is the mayor of Washington, D.C. Gosh, guys, even in Toronto I knew that.

    And in what direction is health care going since Obama Care has been passed think about that.

    This has nothing to do with health care. This cartoon is about ethics problems in the DC’s mayor’s office.

    The dollar sign in the middle of the x-ray looks terminal.

    I think it’s going in a very good direction if you consider adding insurance coverage for 30 million people who otherwise would either just get sick and die or use the emergency rooms in critical situations instead of proactively maintaining their health. It also more than pays for itself, actually reducing the budget deficit. Read here for details.: http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2012/08/niall-ferguson-finally-renders-me-speechless
    SO, whats your problem Jack?

    Or the people who will just pay the 200 dollar tax each year until they get cancer or have an accident and then get really cheap insurance subsidized by taxpayers. Get it Jude?

    As opposed to the old system where someone gets sick, goes to the hospital, and when he can’t pay, the cost is passed on to those who can. What do you think of THAT plan? 39 Billion in uncompensated medical care in 2010. Obamacare is a step in the right direction. But if the CONservatives have a better idea, PLEASE, lets have it.

    Here is something from a little better source that states just the month before your own post that the CBO said Obama care will cost more and reduce the deficit less. Read on in the first paragraphs it says “Today, the CBO believes that Obamacare will spend more money, raise more tax revenue, and reduce the deficit less than the agency thought in 2010. And things could get worse”.

    Damn Ima, you are a fool. July was the hottest July in recorded history (don’t you ever go outside?), so little worry about the world being covered in ice. And people will always get sick, it’s just now they will have the chance to get well without being driven into bankruptcy. You seem to be concerned only with yourself, and distainful of others or their concerns, but not all others share your selfish viewpoint. We want everyone to be healthy.

    I met a republican who said Obama is a Marxist. Where do they come up with that stuff?
    I wanted to point out the lies that are being told, but why bother.
    They are none so blind as those who will NOT see.

    Of course. The only people allowed to have death pannels are the for profit industry. Can’t make them money? Hit the bricks. Your god must be very proud of you.

    Yes, It is an improvement. The local hospital says ACA will save over 51 million in costs that would be passed on to paying patients.

    Even though this subject is off content of the cartoon please let me say that if ACA had been available years ago, my brother and his wife might still be alive. My brother was denied coverage for either healthcare or life insurance because of a pre-existing condition developed in the US Army. He was even denied by the VA until finally they found all of his records. His first appointment was to be 2 or 3 weeks after he passed.
