No, Obamacare doesn't make everybody pay for health care. Liberal parasites with low incomes STILL won't pay for health care, that's why you lefties like it.
Doctors have to pay over $100,000/year in malpractice insurance. Ask one next time you go in. Who pays for that? The people that see him for health care.
Recently Merck Pharm was sued because a few fat middle-aged smokers had heart attacks after taking Vioxx. They got a couple billion in a class action-- who pays? The people that buy drugs from Merck.
I put $700/month into a health savings account, about the same as I would pay in health insurance. In a year, I have over $8K. In ten years, that's almost $100K with modest investment growth. Since I've been doing it for 30 years, I can afford just about any procedure I need. And any money I don't use is passed down to my children. Try to do that with an insurance policy.
See, there are many solutions to problems if you take responsibility for yourself. But that's not the Liberal Way. You lefties like to blow your paycheck on bass boats and beer, then when something bad happens you want a corporation (or the ubiquitous Evil Rich Guy) to blame and a gubbermint program to make it all better.
I for one am getting damned tired of bailing out you parasites. Liberals are pathetic, I wish you would grow up.
1) Currently the poor have Medicaid.

So who is uninsured? The working poor that can't afford it & some by choice.

Obamacare will get the majority of these either insured or paying fines into the system.

Those making over 133% of the poverty line will have to pay part of their insurance.

And really, Isn't the yearly limit for a HSA is around $3100? & wouldn't that make you a liar?

And really, you plan no health problems for you or our family. One serious issue & you become one of the people you are b*tching about.

We're going the wrong way, so I'm going to continue to speak out.

Dave is a moron.
The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.
The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.
So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.
1) Not all subprime mortgages were CRA loans.

2) CRA loams are typically long term standard mortgages

3) The percentage of all failed loans that were CRA is about the same percentage of all loans that were CRA.

4) Banks were never forced top issue bad loans.

5) Redlining was proven to be racist in a court of law.

You left out Texas because Texas got a pile of military spending.

And really, Virginia is a Red State.

In August 1998, Ritter resigned his position as UN weapons inspector and sharply criticized the Clinton administration and the UN Security Council for not being vigorous enough about insisting that Iraq's weapons of mass destruction be destroyed. Ritter also accused UN Secretary General Kofi Annan of assisting Iraqi efforts at impeding UNSCOM's work. "Iraq is not disarming", Ritter said on August 27, 1998, and in a second statement, "Iraq retains the capability to launch a chemical strike."
However, by 1999, he reversed his opinion.
In June, 1999, Ritter responded to an interviewer, saying: "When you ask the question,'Does Iraq possess militarily viable biological or chemical weapons?' the answer is no! It is a resounding NO. Can Iraq produce today chemical weapons on a meaningful scale? No! Can Iraq produce biological weapons on a meaningful scale? No! Ballistic missiles? No! It is 'no' across the board. So from a qualitative standpoint, Iraq has been disarmed. Iraq today possesses no meaningful weapons of mass destruction capability."
In 2002, Scott Ritter stated that, as of 1998, 9095% of Iraq's nuclear, biological and chemical capabilities, and long-range ballistic missiles capable of delivering such weapons, had been verified as destroyed. Technical 100% verification was not possible, said Ritter, not because Iraq still had any hidden weapons, but because Iraq had preemptively destroyed some stockpiles and claimed they had never existed. Many people were surprised by Ritter's turnaround in his view of Iraq during a period when no inspections were made. During the 20022003 build-up to war Ritter criticized the Bush Administration and maintained that it had provided no credible evidence that Iraq had reconstituted a significant WMD capability.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iraq_wmds#Betwee...
In January 2003, United Nations weapons inspectors reported that they had found no indication that Iraq possessed nuclear weapons or an active program. Some former UNSCOM inspectors disagree about whether the United States could know for certain whether or not Iraq had renewed production of weapons of mass destruction. Robert Gallucci said, "If Iraq had uranium or plutonium, a fair assessment would be they could fabricate a nuclear weapon, and there's no reason for us to assume we'd find out if they had." Similarly, former inspector Jonathan Tucker said, "Nobody really knows what Iraq has. You really can't tell from a satellite image what's going on inside a factory."

I didn't SAY they should recover his body, after all it's about as covered as it can get right now! WhatI SAID was it was a shame that his family didn't have anything to bury after he died in the cave-in which buried him so completely. As Christians it is our duty to bury our dead even when God already did it for us!

I can't believe how gullible you losers are; some reich-wing non-journalist tells you all your life's misery is the responsibility of "liberals" who are ALL black, stupid, on welfare--when they're not Hollywood, elitist, rich--and you just fall into goosestep.

Yes, love, love, love. Love, love, love. There's nothing you can do that can't be done. Nothing you can sing that can't be sung. Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game.
It's easy.

Nothing you can make that can't be made. No one you can save that can't be saved. Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.
It's easy. All you need is love. All you need is love. All you need is love, love. Love is all you need. All you need is love. All you need is love.
All you need is love, love. Love is all you need.

Nothing you can know that isn't known. Nothing you can see that isn't shown. Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be. It's easy. All you need is love. All you need is love. All you need is love, love. Love is all you need. All you need is love (all together, now!) All you need is love.(everybody!) All you need is love, love. Love is all you need (love is all you need).
