Well, by the way you diss conservatives and praise liberals, it's really hard to tell what you are sometimes, Homer.
But I'll believe you.
Who did you vote for in 2012, by the way?
I do not diss conservatives, I diss rightwingers, I do not see the two as being the same and if I praise anyone it's the individual or something I agree with, I believe I have even had a kind word for John Galt from time to time.

I voted for Obama. In all honesty the biggest thing for me with Romney was his plan to increase defense spending by a couple trillion dollars, Homer was/is completely against that. We're already broke. Other that a few other things not much difference between the two candidates once you dial down all the rhetoric and wade through all the BS from both sides.

I know this will be an absolute shock to you but insurance companies actually base their pricing on statistical analysis of various age groups. They do this now, really. No sh*t.
And they are profitable.
The insurance companies will now have more customers & more profits.
Those without insurance now use the medical facilities & often can not pay.
These 30 million newly insured will now use these facilities and pay with their insurance.
So explain why this will destroy private insurance companies. Explain why adding thee 30 million new customers will harm doctors & hospitals?
If those 30 million people suddenly found jobs w/ medical benefits, how would that be different?
Let's just forget about the game changer...pre-existing conditions..right, dumbass dave? Oh, and the other game changer...no one like the medical device tax.

Insurance companies are not allowed to make much profit. The amount allowed to make is even less under obamacare. Most of the 30 million uninsured now don't want or need medical care. Most are young and healthy. The young and healthy will be paying low premiums but will be using health care facilities they would not have in the past because it's "free". A 20 year old who would have toughed out that skateboard injury will now happily walk into a hospital.

Doctors and hospitals will now have to bill according to codes (not actual costs), you know, those same codes one of you dumbasses (no names mentioned...nuculur option) denied they would be used for billing purposes.

You can have lots f halves.
Dave's attempt to save Sonic's stupidity at claiming he was half everything.

He thinks because you have a variety of objects with two characteristics each that it equals the ability to have numerous halves.

Then he gets all pissed when it is pointed out there still is only two options per object not countless ones.

Dumb Dave is arguing it is mathematically possible to have more than two halves.

So there, you are wrong Eman when you challenged Sonic that you can only be half twice.

<quoted text>Both Republicans and Democrats rejected his budgets, so he was probably on to something. And as I stated at the end of the day does it matter, we haven't stayed on budget since the Eisenhower administration. At least the Democrats were honest enough to say why even have a fckin' budget, we're never gonna keep to it.
We never 'stayed on budget' during the suppy-sider Administrations of Reagan and Bush43 and both times it ended in financial disaster , S&L and recessions under Reagan and the bigger Lehman bros. collapse and Wall Street crisis and recession at end of Bush43 's second term. Can't republicans let go of Reagan's nipple and just admit supply-siders SUCK!:-D

We're already paying for their health care, that's what you morons don't get, EMERGENCY ROOM!
that is such a lie. Emergency room visits is a pittance compared to the cost to the taxpayer for O'bamacare. Not only that but the hospital gets tax cuts 10 times greater than the cost of their "charity emergency room care." but you knew that didn't you?
U.S. Hospitals are advertising in Mexico to come have your baby here in the United States-why are they doing that? O'bama cut a deal with them too?

Here is the truth that Obamabots do not understand.

Obamacare is complicated, but essentially companies with 50 or more full-time workers are required to offer coverage that meets certain basic standards and costs no more than 9.5 percent of an employee’s income. Failure to do so means fines for the employer.(Full-time work is defined as 30 or more hours a week, on average.)

But do the math from the worker’s side: For an employee making $21,000 a year, 9.5 percent of their income could mean premiums as high as $1,995 and the insurance would still be considered affordable.

With such a small income,“there is just not any left over for health insurance,” said Shannon Demaree, head of actuarial services for the Lockton Benefit Group.“What the government is requiring employers to do isn’t really something their low-paid employees want.”

Aren’t low-income workers supposed to get tax credits to help them purchase private insurance, though? Yes indeed — unless their employer has offered them “affordable” coverage and they’ve turned it down. So if you reject the sort of “affordable” coverage described above, if only out of simple necessity, you’re out of luck on subsidies.
