Clueless Fools

A precedent was established by the SCOTUS, one that says the government can force us to purchase a product. In law, precedent is everything. Why? Because it then becomes PRACTICE.

Why, after the democrats have gone this far, stop at health insurance? Does anyone think the government, no matter which side is in power, will stop with health insurance? Ask yourselves this - has the gov't ever once, having expanded its authority, not expanded upon that authority?

So, what's next, life insurance? Solar panels for your home? Electric cars?

You folks who wanted the Supreme Court to side with Obama have no idea as to the can of worms you've opened and dumped down an already slippery slope.

Thanks a lot, clueless fools.

There's NO GUARANTEE that doctors and hospitals won't be stiffed for the bill the a loser does pay. Lower premiums mean HIGHER DEDUCTIBLES for all.

A liberal who doesn't want to pay $2,000 deductible (or doesn't have it) isn't going to pay the bill when their health INSURANCE doesn't pay. So much for a bad credit risk...

If it's ghetto, ignorant, and idiot, it's illiterate, loser, and liberal..

Political Science teaches but does not act?

Microsoft says it fielded more than 37,000 requests for information about its customers from law-enforcement agencies in the first half of this year - roughly consistent with the pace of such data demands in 2012.

Bureaucrats run the government, not politicians.
Appointed and anointed by the elected bureaucrats.

Small town mayors earning $7K hand out $100K jobs to city managers/economic development managers/ the popo and fire chiefs__shall we go on???

So__I had a piece of land once that the city wanted to buy for a good deal of money, make that a great deal of money, so they bought it from me and just after closing but before the check was cut it was learned that the grant money had never even been applied for and the city couldn't complete the transaction.

I retained the land along with a handsome legal settlement.

Ya gotta love city hall__and the higher the elected, appointed and anointed go the more distracted they get__until they're totally worthless.

The United States and Israel are not one Nation--but we share the same G-d given values as two separate countries. You liberals hate G-d...why are you propagating your love for G-d now?
Tick tock, tick tock. Just because you are an American born citizen who isn't required to take an oath of allegiance to the United States does not mean you shouldn't. Let's hear it.....where does your allegiance lie...with the United States or Israel? It's a pretty straight forward, simple question.

I'll make it even easier: You can answer with a Yes or no. Do you pledge your allegiance SOLELY to the United States of America?

Hey crazzzzy!

Who does not want medical insurance?

Get sick, 5 days in the hospital: owe over $200,000?

Hospital: pay up! take your house, take your bank account, force bankruptcy...etc.

That is the old way of Republican rule!

New way: Come get insurance, guaranteed affordable by law.

The democrat way.

YOU can't be turned down for any reason!

All 50 states. Obamacare....it's everywhere.

BY FEDERAL LAW.

Republicans: so afraid and it shows!

Citizens: who needs a Bhoener to mess up my med ins?

Who needs a Cruz to spew madness and hate?

50 million finally get medical insurance in the USA!

Republicans hate that?

LOSERS!

no more votes for you. this thing is huge, going to be a great success in the USA......

It's only a little lie and how bad is the bad?

"For instance, religious individuals and political conservatives tended to say that lying was never acceptable under any circumstances, while political liberals tended to say that lying was permissible or even obligatory if it resulted in greater good than bad"

So lower premiums if preferable over quality doctors.
BTW, I googled your quote, here are the results
No results found for "lower by as much as 25% by limiting the number of doctors and hospitals in the network."
Care to cite your source?
Here you go sweetie:

All that had to be done for all that waste of bandwidth and money was catastrophic insurance, tort reform and selling across state lines.

The rest is nothing but an attempt to create a single payer system run by the government.

It's a good law, the Democrats just did a lousy job at selling it. Of course healthcare reform is a tough sell to begin with, boooorrring. And with Republicans and their mouthpiece at Fox News whining and bitching and mis-informing every step of the way it's no wonder the confusion and hatred towards it.
