Maybe you should try and move out of the Ghetto, get off of Snaps and stop selling crack.
What the hell are snaps and now you are saying the illegals are selling crack. Yes yes, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin has always been considered a Ghetto. of course, why didn't I think of that. In case you didn't notice, your precious illegal criminals aka messicans are in every area. I remember a few years ago when the USA was playing Messico--the future democrats were cheering against the USA, seems fitting doesn't it?

Stupid argument? It could be. Can you guarantee that it won't once the national government is charged inclusively with public health? No one can predict the future. You said congress can do what it wants.
We are more diverse and complex than Canada. Canada's population is about the same as California. If California had the ability to eliminate Medicare and Medicaid and initiate a single payer system for everyone for itself, I wouldn't have a problem with that.
The European Union has a parliament in Brussels, yet all the nations in the union have their own healthcare plans.
No one can predict the future.

Single Payer is not like the VA. Just admit you were wrong & quit flailing about the how it might change ion the future.

Asked Wednesday if he had any response to criticism by Vice President Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz that no president had done worse in office than Barack Obama, White House press secretary Jay Carney delivered the perfect reply.
"Which president was he talking about?" he deadpanned at his final White House briefing.
"It's always good to hear from former Vice President Dick Cheney," he added

It looks like we may have been wrong about Cheney being Bush's brain. Bush is smart enough to keep his mouth shut and is pretty much hiding from the press while his colossal Iraq blunder plays out. Idiot Cheney, on the other hand, is still beating his chest about his part in creating this Middle East disaster.

They are ovals. There is a lot more to it than that but I wouldn't expect you to understand. 210 mph going down into turn two last week with another car a foot away beside you is exciting. Bet you didn't know a cloud going over the sun could speed a car up 3-5 mph. Road course this week. Watching a bunch of men running up and down a grass field all day to 'maybe' score a point is boring. I like rugby much better.

I once made an inquiry for a friend who retired at 62, thinking he could qualify for Medicaid because he lives on social security and he was denied.
The income levels for qualifying are really low, plus he owned a home and two cars.
Another friend who had a terrible biking accident and couldn't walk for 6 months, or work, had been self employed, same thing. He tried to apply for disability, it's not an easy task as many claim on here. He gave up and survived by the help of friends till he got on his feet and went back to work.
The Medicaid expansion would allow those who fall between the gaps to buy insurance that would otherwise cost them $700 plus a month. Let's see if Rick Scott does something about it or gets voted out and Charlie Crist does.
My state had basic and essential plans tailored for your friend. Early retirees used it as a bridge to Medicaid. Obamacare eliminated them. We were already at 200% of poverty level with Medicaid.

Thanks Bush-Cheney for the mess you created world wide. After eight years of the very worst "leadership" and I use that term loosely, we are now seeing the results of bagger leadership.

We should have know as history shows that every time we have had a depression or a serious recession it has been after eight years of a Republican presidency. I do believe that will be the last time we will see two morons like that as hopefully we have learned our lesson. Each day there are becoming fewer and fewer sheep on the right. All we have to remember is that "RIGHT is WRONG".

Exactly. One cannot predict the future. I never said the VA is the same as single payer. I said single payer is something that could lead to VA style healthcare. You can't guarantee that it won't long after we're gone.

Bill Clinton was bombing Iraq almost every day-why isn't Clinton saying anything? cause he doesn't know what he was doing? maybe it was just a video-yep Clinton's entire presidency was just a video.

Apparently:
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they'd be asked the "half empty or half full" question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she enquired: "How heavy is this glass of water?"

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it's not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn't change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

She continued, "The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything."

Remember to put the glass down.
