On Monday, several news outlets highlighted comments that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) made to the Iowa Republican Party earlier this month in which he mocked an Obamacare provision for being burdensome and silly. Paul ridiculed the health law for forcing doctors to use 122,000 new medical diagnostic codes for describing Americans’ injuries to the government, including for “injuries sustained from a turtle” and “walking into a lamppost.”
The new codes do, admittedly, exist. There’s just one problem with Paul’s claims — they were adopted by the George W. Bush administration, long before Obamacare was even being debated.
Paul is referring to the transition from the ICD-9 — the current system of medical code classifications that originated from the World Health Organization (WHO)— to the far more detailed ICD-10. That’s a change that was mandated by the Bush White House in its waning days and is reflective of changing international standards for coding care. Many countries have been using the updated codes for over a decade.
In a press release from August 15, 2008, Bush’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) wrote that it had issued rules to implement “a long-awaited proposed regulation that would replace the ICD-9-CM code sets now used to report health care diagnoses and procedures with greatly expanded ICD-10 code sets, effective Oct. 1, 2011.”"

It's a Bush policy,idiot.
Your stupidity shines through again!!
Right wing use of the term "the Magic Negro" indicates their major problem.
If Obama was White and Republican they would support him...except for the teabaggers on welfare

Most illegal aliens will not bother to purchase auto insurance.
In fact, a large percentage of American ghetto dwellers lack such insurance.
do you think that may be related to the fact that a large percentage of people who live in inner city ghettos don't own a car?

just wondering

No we don't think you are kidding, but we also learned that those coding changes were adopted by the Bush Administration.
so do you still think they are stupid, or as usual think they are a great idea, since it was a bush thing
What gives the government the right to invade our privacy to collect data on our medical history?

Oh, yeah, Obamacare.

I won't waste my time- at this moment- attempting to verify the truth of your statement as it is irrelevant to what you posted.
You continually make the mistake of thinking everyone is as rank partisans as yourself. Haven't you yet realized the 'but Bush' nonsense does not make what the current administration is doing right.
Really, what is your argument here? What Bush did was so bad Obama is repeating it.
I disagree with a lot of what the current Obama administration is doing. we should have been out of Afghanistan right after Osama was killed.
Gitmo should be closed down, but Congress has some complicity in that.

the current "War of Terror" should be declared over and we should go back to fighting terrorism as we did under Clinton and Bush I. Its too Orwellian and leads to too many Constitutional violations

drone strikes on Americans on American soil should be outlawed and if utilized a cause for impeachment

People were pointing out the number of codes, I just pointed out the policy was adopted under Bush. I never took a position on the value of it. But in this day of computers, it helps to track health issues and should be that cumbersome.

I know you guys on the left would rather believe those who hold the Guiness Book of World Records for the number of lies told in the shortest amount of time...and especially the lie that conservatives' desire for smaller government and accountability means the world as we know it would come to an end.

But let me assure you, it will not. There will still be a welfare system, a Medicade system and a Social Security system.

It will just be there in 20 or 30 more years and be more cost efficient without 20 oversized paper pushers sweating and grunting to do the same job one paper pusher can do easily.

There will also be more job opportunities and manufacturing brought back with incentives to do so. Businesses will be unburdened from the ball and chain of what is now government regulation/taxation enslavement.

Is anyone listening? Or even giving this a little thought?

Hello?

No, I didn't want to put any men in Iraq. I knew, along with many others that Saddam didn't have any WMD's.
But, as one who served in the Marines, if you are going to commit troops, you do it the right way. Like President George H.W. Bush did. You tell your military what you want done, step aside and let them run the show. Providing them with the troops and equipment they need. You do not plan the ops.
We should have learned our lesson from Vietnam, when LBJ and McIdiot (McNamera) tried to run day to day ops for the Vietnam war from the oval office.
and yes, if we go to war, we should have a draft....that includes the children of all politicians who voted for the war. Just like WWII. If war is all that necessary, then we as a country should be willing to make sacrifices.
What we did to our troops, making them serve 5-6 combat tours is one of the biggest injustices ever done to a group of people.
Nothing makes me angrier than that scene where a bunch of GOP supporters of the war were talking about it, then they were given enlistment papers and asked to enlist if they supported the war.....
guess they didn't support it that much...as none enlisted
We can agree to disagree about the military draft, a disaster that ripped the country apart during the Vietnam era.

If we didn't learn from that, we never will.

I have also witnessed your racists and bigoted posts over time. You are not worth the time for any of you to go back searching for them. Your moronic posts aren't worth reading anyways. It's always the same garbage. over and over.

Maybe, but the difference is that there was no reason to get involved in Libya.
