So you are arguing for Obamacare. Moving towards everyone having insurance would make everyone payers into the health system.
Not having insurance & relying on Health Savings Accounts will only work for the small stuff. My fried had a heart attack at 42. Her emergency room & ICU bill was $89,000. Without any doctor bills yet.
As soon as she has enough strength its triple bypasss time.
We could have meaningful tort reform ass soon as Republicans quit insisting on caps.
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.

The Second Persian Gulf War, also known as the Iraq War, Mar.–Apr., 2003, was a largely U.S.-British invasion of Iraq. In many ways the final, delayed campaign of the First Persian Gulf War, it arose in part because the Iraqi government failed to cooperate fully with UN weapons inspections in the years following the first conflict.
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, 90–95% 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 2002–2003 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."

Like 9-11.

Clinton had upgraded the CIA and FBI's anti-terror units. He created a massive stockpile of antidotes for terror agents like anthrax. Several terror attacks were foiled like the one against Los Angeles Airport and another aimed at the Israeli embassy in Washington.

He was gone for over six months when 9-11 struck.

And Bush was warned by Tenet of an impending terror attack six weeks in advance. Tenet's August 6, 2001 PDB even mentioned preparations for hijackings, which of course, is what happened.

BUSH and THE CONSERVATIVE MEDIA LIED US INTO THE IRAQ WAR.

In 2002, Scott Ritter, a former UNSCOM weapons inspector heavily criticized the Bush administration and media outlets for using the testimony of alleged former Iraqi nuclear scientist Khidir Hamza, who defected from Iraq in 1994, as a rationale for invading Iraq;

We seized the entire records of the Iraqi Nuclear program, especially the administrative records. We got a name of everybody, where they worked, what they did, and the top of the list, Saddam's "Bombmaker" [which was the title of Hamza's book, and earned the nickname afterwards] was a man named Jafar Dhia Jafar, not Khidir Hamza, and if you go down the list of the senior administrative personnel you will not find Hamza's name in there. In fact, we didn't find his name at all. Because in 1990, he didn't work for the Iraqi nuclear program. He had no knowledge of it because he worked as a kickback specialist for Hussein Kamel in the Presidential Palace.

He goes into northern Iraq and meets up with Ahmad Chalabi. He walks in and says, I'm Saddam's "Bombmaker". So they call the CIA and they say, "We know who you are, you're not Saddam's 'Bombmaker', go sell your story to someone else." And he was released, he was rejected by all intelligence services at the time, he's a fraud.

And here we are, someone who the CIA knows is a fraud, the US Government knows is a fraud, is allowed to sit in front of the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations and give testimony as a expert witness. I got a problem with that, I got a problem with the American media, and I've told them over and over and over again that this man is a documentable fraud, a fake, and yet they allow him to go on CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, and testify as if he actually knows what he is talking about.

You're right about us liking it. Because what you call "liberal parasites" are people of all ethnic backgrounds too poor to afford medical care.

And we Democrats give a damn about them.

BILL CLINTON IS DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR 911.

"It's the economy, stupid," was the buzzword that many pundits acknowledge catapulted Bill Clinton into the White House in 1992. During the Clinton years, the deficit plunged and the stock market soared. It was a time of peace and prosperity in America with the Monica Lewinsky affair providing a comic sideshow along the fodder for late-night TV Hosts. But while the economy roared and the latest Monica jokes made the rounds, the seeds of terror were blossoming around the globe. In 1993, Americans were horrified to see the bloodied corpse of a U.S. serviceman dragged through the streets of Mogadishu by a mob of rabid Somalis.

Then came 1998 and the lethal bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa. Still, the administration did little but lob off a few cruise missiles now and again. And the seeds of terror kept growing. The results of a special investigation - examined how a nation and an administration, through a combination of inactivity and massive failure in the intelligence community, were asleep at the switch during the Clinton years. And how, without warning, those seeds of terror reaped a bitter harvest on America's second and even bloodier day of infamy, September 11.

The Clinton administration repeatedly mishandled major opportunities to kill or capture super-terrorist Osama bin Laden, the man who declared war on America. On at least two occasions, foreign governments actually offered to hand him over on a silver platter - but the Clinton White House refused to accept him.

One guy with a thousand million dollars. Cut his taxes?

The billionaire already has every advantage, he made all that dough with tax rates as is.

So taxes were too high? Then how did the billionaires get rich? Too high taxes would preclude being able to get filthy rich!

But the DB GOP made tax cuts for the richest it's focal point.....(remember tax cuts for Richy create jobs)

REALLY? Then how did Bush lose millions of jobs AFTER MASSIVE TAX CUTS?

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.
