And then the rationing begins, for the better good a collectivist utopia, eliminate whitie.
Rationing is the key problem in countries with socialized medicine.

Liberals think it's going to be different here even with a population of over 300 million.

They think government running our health care instead of running the military and the treasury is the best thing since sliced bread.
They must love going to the DMV.

<quoted text>yeah right sure. Not the case. My husbands' partner paid out of pocket for the birth of his second child one year ago.

Now that would have cost around $18,000.00 if he had insurance. You are such a lying old bat.

FACT: Testing makes it possible to eliminate high cholesterol, heart disease, diabetes, cancer and many other diseases. However, its better for all of us if you don't get tested.
So now testing is "preventing" illness. OMG. If you were tested how did you get cancer three times--why wasn't it eliminated after the first test?

Not researching, just asking about the sexual motivation. It's having sex with a butthole.
All elected officials are servants of the people. As soon as you and sonic forget that, you both might as well buy a brown shirt.
Why are you asking this on here? Go to the gay sex forums and ask them. Then after that, go on the African American forum and tell they're all dumb for not being republican

There are always a few rotten apples and Professional Maintenance is just one of them.
The majority of company share the view of Starbucks' CEO Howard Schultz:
"Starbucks' CEO Howard Schultz told CNN earlier this month that Starbucks will not change its coverage even though Obamacare will raise its costs.
"I don't believe that ... the health care law should be a reason or a motivation to cut benefits for either the employee or spouses," Schultz said. "An investment in your people is an investment in shareholder value."

No problem...Starbucks customers don't care about price...you lefties are the only ones stupid enough to pay that much for a cup of coffee...but Galt appreciates the free Wifi when traveling...

Qualified health claim,
Daily intake of Selenium can significantly reduce the risk of cancers.
This idiots know nothing about health or caring for themselves. They run to the doctor for everything, thinking that is preventing them from being sick. The best place to get sick is in the hospital-and death by doctoring. I bet they all eat sodium chloride by the cup full. And think they need it.

Dude, your missing the point. It's not about the treatment or survival rates, it's about who's paying for the care. Between Medicaid & Medicare, the Feds are paying for medical care for nearly 50 million Americans ... And the system is nearly out of cash.
if someone is on Medicaid/medicare they don't have the means to pay?

Where will oBamacare get the money to pay for these people?

Except for the people that just lost their insurance, thanks to idiots like you.
They don't have to buy insurance from the exchanges. Actually, many may find it better to bundle their health insurance with their auto or home insurance....if they own such things.

Fckn stupid liberals.
the hard truth is that early diagnosis of some cancers just increases the cost of treatment and prolongs the agony of death...in other cases lives are saved, so a mixed bag...

Because they refused to have their baby vaccinated. As the hospital figured out when the lawyers came with the police, they had to release the baby with out vaccinations. Liberal Illinois. Looking forward to what O'bama care is going to do to babies-if they are born that is.

Rush hasn't taken Oxy for years. Why do you consistently lie? no one ever changes or pays their debt to society--this is liberalism. Always force people to carry their crimes with them for the rest of their lives...I don't believe that is justice. But evidentally you lied before also. At least one thing is for sure, I stick with my convictions---you on the other hand...
