HEY STUPID! Nurse Practitioners and Physicians Assistants need to pass rigorous educational requirements and have Masters degrees in their fields. They are definitely not third rate and are fully capable of diagnosing and prescribing treatment for common chronic conditions.
You're an idiot Galt!
There is a reason that people spend years in medical school and internships. The reason is that amateurs like nurse practitioners and physician assistants can't tell the difference between routine illnesses and serious problems. Why should anybody take the risk to save a few bucks?

The standards for these amateurs vary widely from state to state.

Obamacare at odds with state
As ‘extreme’ insurance costs loom, Senate pushes waiver

"The Affordable Care Act is proving to be anything but in Massachusetts. The recent revelation that federal regulatory changes could jack up premiums over 50 percent for some small companies has resulted in resistance from an unexpected source: the senior Democratic leadership in the state Senate.

The Senate passed a bill that will force Gov. Deval Patrick and his administration, to seek a waiver from certain elements of the ACA. The House on Friday went along with the Senate language. The move could come to a head when the provision lands on the governor’s desk. Should he sign it, it would be an embarrassing political moment for the Obama administration. How is it that the ACA is forcing significant changes to the state law officials claim was their model?"

When a good portion of the guns being used in Chicago come from out of state, then trying to control access to guns in Chicago doesn't work very well.
Instead dealers just go to a Red State to buy guns & sell them in the marketplace protected by Republicans.
Dumbwaiter sides with the NRA in making sure gun manufacturers don't lose out on any sales.
Chicago has a high rate of urban gang killings because the police just don't give a damn.

Liberals/Democrats would have been celebrating Snowden as a Hero if this had happen during the Bush Presidency!! WHAT’S UP?
It did happen under the Bush administration...only difference was that the Bush administration circumvented the law by not getting court orders.

June, 2006: George W. Bush on the surveillance program in which the release of classified information on the governments bypassing of banking privacy protections, to tap into international banking records for information about terrorist financing:

"This program has been a vital tool in the war on terror. There can be no excuse for anyone entrusted with vital intelligence to leak it and no excuse for any newspaper to print it."

Treasury Secretary John W. Snow wrote: "In choosing to expose this program, despite repeated pleas from high-level officials on both sides of the aisle, including myself, the Times undermined a highly successful counter-terrorism program and alerted terrorists to the methods and sources used to track their money trails."

A GOP House resolution..... "expects the cooperation of all news media organizations in protecting the lives of Americans and the capability of the government to identify, disrupt, and capture terrorists by not disclosing classified intelligence programs such as the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program."

"The GOP resolution, sponsored by Rep. Michael G. Oxley (Ohio), also states that "the disclosure of the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program has unnecessarily complicated efforts by the United States Government to prosecute the war on terror and may have placed the lives of Americans in danger both at home and in many regions of the world." It "condemns the unauthorized disclosure of classified information by those persons responsible and expresses concern that the disclosure may endanger the lives of American citizens."

GOP Mantra: "Do as we say, not as we do."

<quoted text> Can't tell him nothing. I've said the same thing a few months back when gun control was their new cry for injustice. How can Chicago enforce gun laws when, the surrounding states have loose gun measures. All one has to do is cross the border into the neighboring state, buy their guns & bring them back across the border. This is common sense shit that seems taboo to the uncommon!
Hee, Hee. Now you blame it on other states, eh?

Isn't your President's open border policy with Mexico and illegal Mexicans an issue, too, bro?

It’s been a great week for gay activists, but Dr. Cornel West is not happy. As the postmodern professor par excellence explained to radio host Tavis Smiley last Sunday, the advances made by gays and lesbians mean that “we black folk are just being pushed to the back of the bus”:

"Again this has something to do of course with what history books will say. The irony of the age of Obama in which black folks found themselves pushed to the back,[and] our gay brothers and lesbian sisters more and more pushed to the center."

Perhaps West is right, and identity politics really is a zero-sum game. Then again, the good doctor may simply be suffering from a touch of radical conditionedness.

Think you have it backwards. The IRS just got a big taxpayer bonus with the help of Obama's precious union for screwing over a significant number of taxpayers who also gave them that bonus.
Did you forget Obama wants us all to sacrifice and "put some skin in the game" while he goes on a million dollar taxpayer golfing excursion with Tiger Woods, hosts gala events at the White House and flies all over the world in Air Force One with his huge entourage? While the White House doors remain closed and embassies are denied help before being killed?
Or how about thousands of waivers to avoid Obamacare while the rest of us have to pay the cost and the price of a declining assessable health care?
Yes, you definitely have it backwards.
You paint yourself with the ignorant brush every time you parrot Faux news. The only truthful statement in your post is that Obama is hosting gala events at the White House and flying all over the world as well as taking much deserved vacations....just like all the presidents who came before him. Big Whoop!!!

That's 'Kenya's problem' and yours. The rest of America and the world knows President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. Now; in the case of Ted Cruz--born in Calgary, Canada , not even an American citizen ...

Where have you been for the last five or six years? Obama's birth announcement was published in the Honolulu Advertiser on Sunday, Aug. 13, 1961 announcing that a son was to Mr. & Mrs. Barack H. Obama on August 4th. Perhaps you are just having one of those senior moments.

Obammy's 5 Step War on the Middle Class
Step 3 of 5
3) Higher Student Loan Costs: One of the great aspirations of middle class Americans is sending their kids to college. That takes a lot of money that sometimes needs to be borrowed. Many young Americans who hope to work their way into the middle class have taken out college loans as well.
Because of Barack Obama, those college loans cost considerably more.
After Obama seized the student loan industry, he talked a lot about making college more affordable.
However, what he did was charge higher rates for the student loans so he could take the money and funnel it into Obamacare.
The government borrows money at 2.8 percent and loans it out to students at 6.8%.
Incidentally, those mean old Republicans? They want to cut the rate to 5.3%, but Obama is fighting to make students pay more.
So, if you think you're paying too much interest on student loans, make sure to thank Obama for that.
The larger question is the wisdom of going deeply into debt for worthless degrees from fourth-rate schools for jobs that do not exist.

Why not work and attend college at night, instead of piling up massive debt?
