Medicare is more efficient than private insurance companies.
Physicians can't make any money with Medicare. The cost of hiring people to fill out the never-ending forms leaves them with pennies as a profit. It's why so many are now starting to refuse accepting Medicare patients.

How can Medicare cover the enormous costs of covering every American with every kind of condition anyway?

Constantly using that as an excuse for voting on something as crucial as using military force in another country doesn't make them look any better.
Bush would have had to send out a memo to everyone in Congress except the Democrats saying there'd be a private meeting to discuss the same Intel everyone had including the UN but not to tell the Democrats about it. And then meet with them separately to lie to them.
How do you put these kinds of thoughts together anyway? And come to these kinds of conclusions?

Will or will not the federal government require more bureaucracy and red tape to manage the nation's health care?
Will or will not the IRS require more employees and more departments just to keep track of the nation's health care?
Who pays for all these additional bureaucrats' salaries and benefits compared to the few underwriters in private insurance?
Three questions. Three responses. Go.
Three questions based on mindless gibberish__please explain in detail how the Federal Government will be managing the nations health care.

My Gods, the city, state & country actually survived that communist, anti-Ameroican POS.
If only the NRA was around then. They's have Earp in jail.
Most of the gun freaks don't realize that the 'wild west" didn't allow people to carry guns in town...that is the law the Earps were enforcing at the OK corral...

seems even in those good old days there were restrictions on the 2nd amendment, as there have been since the day it was ratified...

With universal single payer healthcare; the provider swipes a card and submits bill for payment. Period.
So the answer is no.
Second question; answer is no.
Third question is ludicrous. How do private insurance companies make a profit, enough to
build all those skyscrapers and pay their ceo's hundred million dollars salaries plus bonuses?
With universal single payer healthcare; there is no deductible; no copay, no denial of services, no maximum.
Single payer cannot be paid for. It is that simple. The US doesn't have enough money to pay for it if it taxed all of the paychecks 100%. Look at the size of the unfunded liabilities of SSI, medicare and medicare part D.

I've asked you numerous times for an answer on when CRA was repealed so you can prove your point.

And the response? Nada.

The Democrats already knew about Saddam's WMDs and him being an imminent threat way back in 1998.
It was really a no-brainer after 9/11. Intel or no Intel.
Hillary Clinton and John Kerry both sounded very convinced about their decision to take down Saddam in their speeches defending their vote.
But they sounded just as convinced back in 1998. Along with Biden and every other prominent Democrat including then President Bill Clinton.
lol! No son.... The no brainer is there were no wmd's found in iraq.

or you must have 'intel' no one else is privy too.

Soo in your tiny mind the Iraq war was worth the lives of 5,000 American lives, 2 trillion in cost, 30, 000 injured and counting. 5 million misplaced Iraqis a few hundred thousand Iraqis killed. Only the very dumbest in our society could possible believe that it was worth it. And all Based on lies. You and your party own it, just the "FACT" that you and others on the right attempt to share the blame proves you know all of the above is true.
It was worth toppling Saddam's regime in the eyes of 111 Democrats which was the original mission.

The response from the insurgents and al Qaeda claiming Iraq the frontlines was not anticipated - so criticize Bush for that if you want to. But there are no crystal balls in war and Hillary, Joe Biden, Harry Reid and John didn't have one either when they voted for the original mission.

They just left Bush to hang in the wind as soon as it got ugly and saw a political advantage to do so.

It's why they're weasels. And Nancy Pelosi is their queen. She was the first to start screaming at the top of her lungs "Bush lied!"

The truth is Nancy Pelosi lied. Because that's what weasels do. They weasel into situations pretending to be something they're not and, when confronted, they weasel out. They have no true "spine"..

We were discussing how efficient the programs were run.

Organizations that push for single payer have the numbers that say it is less costly that what we have now.

Again, isn't government mandating insurance coverage managing health care?

Just answer the question. Yes or no.

And isn't the IRS tracking the nation's health coverage managing health care and under the umbrella of the federal government?

Answer the question. Yes or no.

i took a look at his voting record on Veterans issues. as i'm sure will soon be loudly pointed out.....it sucks.
Of course it sucks. He never served in the military. He even went so far as to say he had “concerns about a proposal to spend billions of dollars on disability compensation for Vietnam veterans who get heart disease (due to exposure to Agent Orange) and wants to make sure that science supports the expansion of benefits.”

One would think the first prerequisite of being appointed to the Veterans Affairs Committee would be some knowledge of veterans affairs!

I thought it was disgusting of republicans to be using the deaths of U.S. citizens in Benghazi as a political tool but it is far worse to try and climb the political ladder off the backs of the thousands who selflessly served our country.

Vets to Burr: "You clearly represent the worst of politics." Yes he does.

You seem ... to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy... The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal.

Please educate me then. On the history of slavery in the Old South.
I already said the moral fault on the part of many Americans - even some of our founders - was allowing it to continue and tolerating it for far too long.
That is something I will never understand.
But you can't hold a grudge forever. And restitutions have been made as much as is humanly possible.
Blacks have taken their rightful place in society and those who haven't choose to be victims.
Just as whites who live in poverty lack an education for whatever reasons and have children they can't afford too young, the same problem exists among blacks who live in poverty.
You can't blame the sins of the past on those living in the present and future. So please stop doing that. Let's focus on fixing the real problems of present-day poverty.
I know you poor thing, I too wish it would just simply go away :-/
