So why donít blacks vote Republican? The answer is simple. Black people are not crazy. Being not crazy, they understand a simple truth about conservatives: They have never stood with, or up for, black people. Never.

Forget modern controversies like mass incarceration. Social conservatives, then based largely in the Democratic Party of the early to mid 20th century, opposed the Voting Rights Act. They opposed the Civil Rights Act. They opposed school integration. They opposed the Montgomery Bus Boycott. They opposed a law to crack down on lynching.

These are the people for whom African Americans are now supposed to vote? To make the argument is to betray a stunning contempt for the intelligence ó and memory ó of black voters.

Yes "it's just natural for them to be concerned that Obamacare will reduce their coverage" meaning if the government isn't going to pay for it, if they have to pay for it themselves its "socialism".
Nobody and no program is limiting their access to care, just whether they have to pay for it or you and I do.
Obamacare sucks but its got to be better than the way we were being squeezed before by Medicare/Medicaid and the uninsured.
If it isn't i'm sure the single-payer option will be revisited and maybe that's been the D's plan all along.
What I do know for a fact is that if they did the right thing and privatized health care the ones screeching the loudest would be the teabaggers:
"Keep your gubmint hands off my Medicare!!!"
Medicare premiums (government plus supplemental) are much higher than most people think, far more than the average person pays toward his employer insurance plan. So, when people retire and go on Medicare, they usually experience a significant increase in cost.

There is no free lunch.

so as long as we continue to suffer with the likes of FOXbot carol and her comrades, the background noise/what the FOXbots would rather not hear will continue unabated.
Great metaphor, FOX filters reality for these lemmings. The good news for progressives is that FOX has created a cult of politically dysfunctional illiterates.

Most people don't develope serious conditions. Beside, the catastrophic coverage flack has covers it, not you.
So, if you get a condition that lasts years with expensive treatments, you think that catastrophic policy will just cover it forever.

What condition, how many years, and how expensive?

The policy will cover it as long as you pay the premiums and the annual deductible.

Of course, depending upon the condition, there are alternatives to medical treatment.
Yeah

Public libraries are quaint luxuries if the taxpayers can afford same.

Galt has an extensive personal library, probably too much to ever get through.

Galt hates electronic books.
