You, as a self proclaimed Libertarian, support the tax lovingly known as obamacare to cure the problem of people abusing emergency rooms?

“Stop treating [President Obama] like God,” Beck declared.“I apologize to those on the left, to assume that you would treat God with any respect…Stop treating him like he’s the prophet Mohammed.”
He suggested the lawmakers who can’t tolerate the mockery pick up a copy of the United States Constitution.
So, in addition to listening to 3 hours of Limbaugh, you listen to another 3 hours if Beck! What comes next?

Hannity is getting sacked for more hours of Savage Nation, you must be totally orgasmic.

Republicans Trot Out a Parade of Losers to Sell Their Party’s Fail

The entire point Republicans were trying to make today on the Sunday shows is that the Politico story about the “Eve of Destruction” within their own party was all wrong. Everything is fine! See? The country loves us, we’re fine, and we can appeal to new voters! In order to prove this, they trotted out Carly Fiorina who stands for cheap, outsourced labor and lost her senate campaign, a stale John McCain who’s been on every single Sunday show since the dawn of time and still lost 2008, a screeching, strident and always annoying Bill Krystal and RNC Chair Reince Priebus, a person who manages to make Mitt Romney look connected while showing how clueless and scared he really is.

Someone needs to tell Republicans that lying about their party’s successful rebranding and great policies on the Sunday shows isn’t the best way to get the youth vote. David Plouffe tried to tell them that they need to find a product to sell to no avail.

Just sayin… The fail is strong with this party.

There was no violence nor "disrepect", to use your ghetto lingo.

The purpose of a rodeo clown is to attract the bull away from the fallen rider, so naturally the bull will chase him.

Besides, respect needs to be earned, something Obama has failed to accomplish.

V. C. Summer Unit 2 is the first new nuclear plant in the US to start construction in 30 years and is barely underway. Galt has been to the site many times.

Vogtle 3 also started limited construction this year.

Summer 3 and Vogtle 4 have not started construction.

Watts Bar 2 has been under construction for more than 30 years and is not a "new" unit.

A start is better than nothing, but other plants (Seabrook and Shoreham) have been constructed and never allowed to operate. Time will tell.

By the way, what makes you think that people without insurance automatically go to the emergency room instead of a family doctor?

the IRS is making medical decisions?
so is that going to be Politifact's lie of the year?
Okay, please note *the source*- it sometimes eludes you.

(CNBC) Get ready for the Internal Revenue Service to play a dominant role in health care. When Obamacare takes full effect next year, the agency will enforce most of the laws involved in the reform—even deciding who gets included in the health-care mandate.

"It's also going to help manage who might get health care," said Paul Hamburger, a partner and employee benefits lawyer at Proskauer.

Michele Bachmann says the IRS is "going to be in charge of our health care"

Dan Kotman, a spokesman for Bachmann, explained her comment by saying that "the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare only meets the constitutionality standard as a tax, and the entity in the United States that enforces tax policy is the IRS. If you don’t comply with Obamacare’s individual mandate, you will be answering to the IRS. That is clearly the context she’s talking within because she had just said,‘The IRS, Greta, is the chief enforcer of Obamacare.’"

But several health policy experts agreed that’s not the same as the IRS being "in charge of our health care."

William McBride, an economist with the business-backed Tax Foundation, said the IRS has been tasked with "a tremendous amount" and that the agency is in "uncharted territory," but he added that he doubts the IRS "will effectively control much of anything related to health care."

Other health policy specialists were even more blunt. "Not accurate," said Gail Wilensky, who headed Medicare and Medicaid under President George H.W. Bush and who is now a health policy consultant. It’s a "ludicrous statement," said Jonathan Oberlander, professor of social medicine and health policy and management at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Our ruling

Bachmann said the IRS is "going to be in charge of our health care." The IRS does play a number of key roles under the health care law, but it’s wrong to say it would "be in charge" of any American’s health care. The IRS won’t oversee interactions between doctors and patients, nor will it play any more of a role than confirming that exchange purchasers qualify for subsidies. Even within the government, HHS plays a much bigger role. We rate Bachmann’s claim False.

If you'd been paying attention ACA is supposed to bring down cost, that was its purpose. I don't think it will though overall, premiums may be lower.
Where you're screwed up is ACA doesn't change the fact that providers will still be private, and for the most part, for-profit providers. If you have the money you can get anything done you want with no waiting. Canada recently re-opened its private sector.
You just want the government to pay all your bills.
Pretty sure you're in for a big surprise - which Pelosi is probably getting hoarse saying by now.
