Thanks for the promo tea bagger, means I will post more. Why don't you ever counter what is said ?? If you can't discredit the argument attack the man. That's the whole point, I said the USA has the most costly health care in the world bar none & one of the most unhealthy populations. So tell us how it is working for you ????
Also why you want to keep that system when you have a Prez with the guts to try & make it better? Or will you just post more bs links.

Problem: the "real dumb" population in this country is large and there is no cure in sight.
Sadly that's what we get when millions sit around all day watching "Cribs" and then thinking their untalented,unemployable, uneducated butts deserve the same.

<quoted text>Well Carol you seem to be forgetting your own words to the effect that the President was blaming the GOP for problems with the rollout. Here's what he actually said;
"Let me close by addressing some of the politics that have swirled around the Affordable Care Act. I recognize that the Republican Party has made blocking the Affordable Care Act its signature policy idea. Sometimes it seems to be the one thing that unifies the party these days. In -- in fact, they were willing to shut down the government and potentially harm the global economy to try to get it repealed.
And I'm sure that given the problems with the website so far, they're going to be looking to go after it even harder. And let's admit it, with the website not working as well as it needs to work, that makes a lot of supporters nervous because they know how it's been subject to so much attack, the Affordable Care Act generally.
But I just want to remind everybody, we did not wage this long and contentious battle just around a website. That's not what this was about. We waged this battle to make sure that millions of Americans in the wealthiest nation on Earth finally have the same chance to get the same security of affordable quality health care as anybody else. That's what this is about. "
Is there anything there blaming the GOP for the rollout difficulties? No. His is rightfully pointing out that the Republicans are using this as another talking point. Bush's Medicare Part D experienced similar difficulties but Democrats, even those who voted against it, helped fix it and get it up and running.
You heard what you wanted to hear Carol, your thought processes have been so warped by hatred that you couldn't hear anything else.
The only issue I have with Oblama's statement is that he's a pathological liar who lies about literally everything.

Taxpayers will foot the bill for Flack and Galt if they need expensive health care because these two morons don't understand the risk of being without insurance. They are are basically on welfare right now by not paying for insurance because taxpayers will be stuck with this "free" health care while they pocket premiums.
Galt's an old timer and on MediCare which he loves. He's an opinionated hateful corksoaker whose entire existence has become topix.

He's like the nasty old prk drinking alone at the end of the bar because nobody want's to get close enough to get an ear full of his puke.

Galt never discusses his personal affairs and only a fool like you would infer anything about Galt's insurance.
She was a non-drinker and non-smoker.
You are the one that posted here your personal affairs claiming that you pay cash for your health care. By your own definition, see above, you are a fool. I agree.

Here’s a few questions, What Event that Trigger the Iraq War?
Who was the Mastermind behind 9/11?
Who was the president that failed to take out the Mastermind?

Yeah GP's, family docs who can get away with it. Actually it's a pretty good way to go if one wishes to serve a neat, tidy and well heeled patient load.

Don't look for the "specialists" to follow suit though, without insurance they'd go broke.

Lois Lame was going on about Nixon's health care reform earlier in the week__this is from the In His Own Words piece:

"Across the nation the average cost of a day of hospital care now exceeds $110. The average cost of delivering a baby and providing postnatal care exceeds $1,000. The average cost for treating terminal cancer now exceeds $20,000."

Those are paltry prices compared to today's costs and perhaps that was the better time to put reigns on the beast bust it didn't happen. Through, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and Bush I health care reform was basically ignored. Clinton took a quick shot at HC reform but never got serious and Bush II was preoccupied to fk with it.

Obama rightly saw HC reform as a now or never project__good for him.

Good point. The importance of that is demonstrated by how Obama takes out as many top terrorist leaders as he can. A libtard like "Yeah" won't be honest and acknowledge that but action is louder than words.

Ironically, this is the only thing Obama is doing right, however he's using the military he and the Democrats don't support.

Clinton did nothing after the first Trade Tower attack except for the typical weak Democrat stance of treating it as a "criminal" matter.

If Clinton did his job, taking out Obama Bin Laden when he had the golden opportunity, Bush would not have had to clean up Clinton's mess.

Too bad he threw out the baby with the bath water and uckfayed up Obamacare as is now abundantly evident.

Democrats never do anything efficiently or appropriately. They always go to the extreme and overplay their hand.

We have a friend who needed a heart transplant and got one; on Medicaid. He was unemployed and had no insurance. It's a wonderment that he is alive and vital, age 58 and is so absolutely grateful. Receiving medical care shouldn't be based upon income.

Obama, the Deer-in-Headlights Community Organizer Punk Child will only go into Iran if he can follow the French like he did in the Libya fiasco.

Didn't Obama say we were going to get answers and bring the "Video" perps to Justice about a year ago?

Instead we found out Obama & Clinton handed over high tech military items to the terrorists after their cover up.

I laugh when I think about the commercial Obama put out against Hillary - the 4AM phone call. Actually, both of them couldn't handle the situation after a 10PM phone call!
