This would be consistent with anyone's plan to take over the entire health care industry.
Yes I know. Except the good doctors will simply stop practicing. It is amazing how easily people are willing, no eager, to give away their freedom.

How about you look at the signature of the mother, and you tell us how a human hand can have the normal change in thickness and contrast of the script as the force on the pen point changes as the angle of the pen changes in the human hand while writing for the first half of the signature, and what is obviously a constant thickness and contrast computer generated script for the last half of the signature.
You never explained, for one example, how a computer generated signature got on a supposed "birth certificate" generated in 1961.
Like I say to the television when one of those ghosts-are-real shows are on, show me the ghost.
Show me the computer from 1961.

I'm with you on this issue.
Evangelicals are as conservative as it gets, with the abortion issue driving them.
It's funny how religious crazies of all stripes, from Evangelicals to Muslims to Catholics, are eager to strip their fellow citizens of their civil rights, based on their beliefs..
Even those who do not share their religious beliefs have their rights taken away due to the zealotry of the religious fascists.
Yes, fascists. Muslim fascists, evangelical fascists, Catholic fascists.
Yet you whine about a make believe 'war on Christmas', as you eagerly try to steal your fellow citizens rights.
It's both sad and pathetic.
You know, I've been around a lot of Christians since Roe v Wade and not once have I heard the issue of abortion become the topic of discussion.

It's more of an understood thing - that God created life and irresponsible behavior isn't just cause to end it.

But this "evangelical" thing some of you seem obsessed with just doesn't exist.

It's probably more prevalent in black churches, actually.

Spending $716 Billion, Twice
Time for an honest debate on Medicare.
By Grace-Marie Turner
The issue of $716 billion in spending cuts to Medicare has taken center stage, with accusations flying about who is raiding Medicare and pushing Granny off the cliff.
So here are the facts:
In 1997, the Republican Congress passed, and President Bill Clinton signed, the Balanced Budget Act (BBA), which gradually reduced payments to Medicare providers as part of a plan to reduce overall federal spending. The key to the policy is the Sustainable Growth Rate, which requires the government to adjust payments for physician services each year so that growth in Medicare spending does not exceed the growth of GDP.
But Medicare’s fee-for-service model works at cross-purposes with this policy, and incentivizes doctors to bill for more and more services, driving up Medicare spending to higher levels year after year. Further, each time the payment cuts are about to be triggered, doctors swarm Capitol Hill to get Congress to postpone them. At first, the payment cuts would have been just 1 or 2 percent if doctors hadn’t succeeded in killing them. But over time they have accumulated, and now doctors would be paid 27 percent less for treating Medicare patients if the originally intended cuts had gone into effect. And the cuts would continue in perpetuity.
Doctors say these payment reductions would cripple their practices and make it difficult for them to see Medicare patients, especially since Medicare already pays doctors less than private plans.
The American Medical Association wants a permanent “doc fix” that would end the threat of these cuts, and the fix was the main demand the AMA made when it was at the negotiating table over Obamacare. The White House promised the fix, but reneged at the last minute. The doc fix was yanked from the bill, largely because of its $208 billion price tag. Astonishingly, and much to the dismay of doctors across the country, the AMA endorsed Obamacare anyway, giving the bill an important push over the finish line.
Last month, following the Supreme Court’s disastrous decision about Obamacare, the Congressional Budget Office recalculated the ten-year cost of the health-overhaul law to determine what the court’s decision would mean to the overall cost of the law. The CBO concluded that the cuts to Medicare now total $716 billion over 10 years — chiefly because the ten-year window is moved three years into the future and, as health costs grow every year, so does Medicare spending.(The law contains other Medicare payment reductions as well.)
The president’s plan to “save” Medicare relies primarily on paying doctors and hospitals less and less by keeping in place the 1997 trajectory for spending cuts. According to Medicare actuaries, this would mean that 40 percent of providers eventually will either go bankrupt or stop seeing Medicare patients altogether.

The religious right IS the conservative movement.

There are probably just as many, if not more, "evangelical" churches in the predominantly black churches.

But churches nowadays are rarely all white or all black. Our commonality is based on something much more important than the labels you liberals try to place on us.

I realize you can't understand what you read but come on Dave it's right there in black and white. But you are partially right. The doctors will demand the cut not happen. The politicians will cave. So much for that $716 billion plus cut in Medicare payments that are supposed to help pay for Obamacare.

No, nothing has been shown... other than proof, for just one example, you can't even define the word "subsidy", and for another example, the only thing you know about Machiavelli was what you learned from Wikipedia cliff notes. You're just running away again.
