Pretty sure most Republicans want pre-existing conditions as part of their health care reform as well.
It's simply not fair or American that a significant number of people be denied medical treatment because they can't afford it.
That's been my beef from day one. The COST of health care - which the Democrats still completely ignore.
There aren't any easy solutions. But the crux of Obamacare isn't it.
Do you think that people with pre-existing conditions should pay the same premiums as everyone else?

Also, where we are now with this present administration and the dumbing down of America did not come about just since 2008. It has been a long time coming.
It's why this fight is not just about politics. It's about who we are and who we are becoming. With the help the liberal media's bullhorn and a powerful central government.

Evidently your knowledge & service & quality of workmanship just doesn't cut it.
Matching coupons is on identical products in different stores.
Nowhere is quality and service more important than in medical care, and yet the government reimburses the worst providers the same amount as the best providers.

Someone named Bruce Thornton said it all in this article:

That’s the modus operandi of the progressives. Democracy, human rights, free speech, individualism are all great when they serve the progressive agenda of growing the Leviathan state in order to coerce citizens into paying obeisance to the goals of “social justice.” If they don’t serve those goals, then the freedoms and rights of conservatives, Christians, capitalists, gun-owners, and other enemies of the state can be abused. But when it’s the progressives’ political ox that’s gored, then we hear the bellowing paeans to the First Amendment.

Speaking for myself, your crudeness won't be missed. It's not helping. The fewer of you there are who have nothing to offer but mean-spiritedness on my side of the fence, the better.
That usually comes from the liberal side and our challenge is to rise above it. Not wallow in it.
I happen to agree when it comes to physical threats but what I don't get is why you give a sht where lily is concerned. She pulls no punches where you're concerned.

ever hear of the Mafia, or the Russian Mafia. In the 1920's-30's, Chicago and many other American cities were pretty violent...a lot of gang warfare was taking place, drive by shootings with tommy guns. Guess which race was responsible for that violence.
Boston and many other American cities have Irish gangs that are violent. In fact, there's a trial going on right now for Whitey Bugler. In fact one of the prosecutor's key witnesses disappeared.
guess what race Bugler is?
Guess which race is solely responsible for all those school shootings from the 90's to Newtown Conn?
Heck, there were a couple of grade school kids that set off the school fire alarm, then went into the surrounding woods and picked off kids as they exited the school.
care to guess what race they were.
Most of the violent murders committed by blacks occur during other criminal activities in poor ghettos. Usually its robbery or protecting one's drug turf.
Not so for the school shooters. They were either middle class or upper middle class....and did it for fun.
My guess is that economic factors have more to do with it than anything else. I could go into poor neighborhoods of any race and find that violent crimes and murders occur more often.
its also a fact that blacks represented a higher percentage of the American society living below the poverty level than their overall percentage of American society
BTW almost all the serial killers in American history were white
John Wayne Gracy
Charles Manson
You don't get the point and it went over head, the Point is statistically Blacks are more violent than Whites as a group if the White and the Black populations were equal here in the US is the point.

Nothing has changed. Congress still has to use the exchanges. They just need to set up the government paying their share of the cost.

Bruce Thornton continued:

As these three scandals show, progressivism is a totalitarian ideology that seeks more and more power in order to institutionalize its dangerous ideas about human nature, the good life, and justice, and that considers any end advancing those ideas to be justified. Which brings us to the important questions––Will the voters see that these scandals are the signs of those failed ideas and reverse our descent into big government’s “soft despotism”? Or will they just shrug them off as politics as usual?

http://frontpagemag.com/2013/bruce-thornton/w...

The majority shrugged off the descent into big government's "soft despotism".

Unless too many in the real majority didn't want to vote for a Mormon.

I hope.

What Obama is requesting from Congress is a Declaration of War on Stria, no more, no less.

Think about it.

I see you're from Philadelphia. You might find this interesting.
In 13 Philadelphia wards in 2013, Obama received 99% of the vote or more. In others, he received 85% and, in others, almost all.
One woman said Obama just needed more time to get the job done.
So what job does Obama need more time to get done? Higher unemployment, more part-time jobs, less money in their wallets?
You didn't vote for Romney either in PA?
Of course, I meant to type "in 2012".

So, you are always the lowest price? That's the only reason they call?

Seems those fast food workers striking for $15 are wasting their time. They will soon be unemployed. Fast food and fast service restaurants Are increasingly turning to technology to cut costs, especially labor. already places like Applebee's is turning to Ipads replacing waitresses/waiters to take your order. Pull up to a Burger King and place your order by smartphone. Say goodbye to those entry level jobs. You get what you ask for. Won't be long till the only person working at the local McDonald's will be the maintenance man. He too will be phased out eventually.
I saw that at an applebee's in valejo. I asked the waitress if we should use it and insisted our order would take longer.

Hi, Yeah. As usual, I am playing catch-up. Still travelling but convinced that I played a very small part in convincing Obama to rethink his course of action. I don't expect him to go against Congress and I don't expect Congress to make the same mistake twice.
However, I need to correct you on one thing, Bush did eventually apologize for his "failure" by admitting the Iraq war was "a clear example of poor judgement" and something that he finds "regrettable".
I trust that Obama has more common sense than Bushie Boy.
George W. Bush, May, 2013:
"After the events of September the 11th, I focused all my energy on protecting America from the next attack." Regrettably in our zeal to defend America, my administration exaggerated threats which - although real - did not constitute a clear and present danger to the United States.
"After my presidency I have come to the belief that the Iraq War, although well intentioned, was unnecessary and too costly to justify. I deeply apologize to the American people and to our soldiers and veterans in particular for engaging them in such a conflict.
"I may have made a mistake - but I think all Americans know that I pride myself on being able to admit my failures."

Hey there USAsince1680. Sounds like you're having a lot of fun seeing the Good 'ol US of A! I hope you're keeping away from heatwaves and tornadoes!

I missed this 'apology' from bushie boy! My reference comes from his first interview with Matt Lauer after his presidency when he said he couldn't apologize because he believed he was doing the right thing. Then he laid the blame at the feet at the intelligence community when in fact, he used 'information' they never provided and even left out information he was actually given.

Well, apologizing this late in the ball game is 'nice', but it really carries little meaning as far as I'm concerned. It might easy his personal conscience, but I don't think it will help those Americans who endured personal loses because of his actions.

And we also know where his wife stands. After all there was another thread here about Laura claiming history will 'vindicate' her husband.

Well, it would seem she also lied as well with the 'apology' being made.

Presidents make mistakes. I get that. But this was a doozy of a most ludicrous proportions and about as brainless and moronic as one can get while lying not only to Americans, but the world.

Is that why the UK is gun shy about Syria? If it is, I don't blame them.
