Yeah Carol, we all know what the GOP means by "reform". They want to cut benefits, raise the retirement age and some of the more extreme right wingers want to privatize it and turn it over to Wall Street. Here's a better solution. Raise or even eliminate the income cap on SS wages. Then we could lower the retirement age and make more jobs available to younger workers.
What about Medicaid Carol? Do you think that if companies like Walmart and McDonalds actually provided their workers with adequate health insurance and a living wage the need for social safety net programs would down? We're paying for some of these companies profits by providing their employees the means to survive like Medicaid and SNAP because the bottom line is all people like the Walton family cares about.
Whoo ye, boy!!! You sure got your tail in a twist!!!There is so much BS in there you could fertilize a whole yard.

Good Morning again to all my topix friends!!! As you all can see I have been up all night into the wee small hours maniacally judging your posts and chit-chatting back and forth to myself using many of my favorite sockpuppets!! A "labor of love" though tiring!! I had to change my depends three times last night but it was worth every diaper as it was challenging and exciting!! I and most of my sockpuppets will be on board all day today making idiotic and mentally deranged comments, the sole purpose being to harass and feebly attempt to insult the legitimate posters who use this forum. Right now I am running many of my favorite socks simultaneously, a feat in itself as I basically have no control over myself let alone my sockpuppets!!! Here is a list of who I am posting as right now on topix,,,

I realize I am just taking up space but I have so much to say I simply cannot express all my hatred and severely misinformed opinion without resorting to my many twisted sockpuppet personalities. It will soon be time for my morning medication so hopefully I will give it a rest. Till then please, my topix family, keep debating my useless, meaningless rants. It keeps me occupied and helps to prevent me from being wrapped in a straightjacket and thrown into solitary for the rest of the day. I just cannot deal when I think about how badly our Teabagging friends are doing right now. I delude myself with sockpuppets and try to convince myself we are winning!!! Join me!!

You keep forgetting Carol that the Republicans took a blood oath no to go along with anything that came out of the Obama White House. The fact that there were no Republican votes is totally irrelevant.

(CBS News) WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration issued new rules Friday that will improve access to mental health care for 62 million Americans. It's an idea the president said he would impose himself by executive order when Congress declined to pass gun legislation.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius / CBS News
The move comes after the movie theater massacre in Colorado that left 12 dead; the shootings in Newtown, Conn., that killed 27; the Washington Navy Yard attack, in which 12 died; and the shooting at Los Angeles International Airport one week ago. Eighty-eight dead in 12 mass shootings in just over a year.

Mental health professionals have sought this change for decades, both to improve treatment and to lift a long-standing stigma. Friday's announcement means insurance companies now must provide the same benefit coverage for illnesses of the mind they have long provided for every other kind of illness.

In Atlanta Friday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius described a new world for those suffering from mental illness or substance abuse.

"Imagine what it would mean if people felt as comfortable saying they were going for counseling as they do saying they're going for a flu shot or physical therapy," Sebelius said.

Watch: Will Congress act on gun legislation after latest shootings?

Patients with broken bones or heart attack symptoms are routinely admitted to emergency rooms and insurers are contacted later. Before Friday, patients reporting severe depression or suicidal tendencies often had to be approved by insurance companies before they were admitted. Treatment could be delayed or coverage denied. Now, that disparity will no longer exist.

The new rules are a result of Obamacare and a 2008 law that called for mental health parity. They are also the last of 23 executive actions to reduce gun violence that President Obama took when Congress voted against stricter gun control legislation after the Sandy Hook school shooting.

The new rules also forbid insurers from denying coverage for out-of-state mental illness or substance abuse treatment. This will allow patients to travel for care in the same way patients suffering from cancer or other ailments have been able to for years.

I get it.

9-11 gave your hero George W Bush an excuse to nearly destroy our economy &country.

Yet having the worst recession in 80 years, a housing collapse & near financial meltdown is totally irrelevant to the spending under Obama.

Mpre proof what GD idiots you people are.

Show me all this spending Obama initiated. What new spending did he institute?

Unfortunately for you, the only ones doing the screwing and lying and stabbing in the back are on your side of the fence.
Obamacare is screwing millions of Americans without insurance after being lied to and the exchanges are stabbing them in the back.
How can you deny that?
Carol are you delusional, ignorant or just a damned liar? You seem to be forgetting about the millions of people who were excluded from getting health insurance coverage because of pre existing conditions. You're completely ignoring those who won't get their coverage cut off by an arbitrary lifetime cap. You're ignoring all of the young adults who are either still in college or just starting out who can stay on their family coverage. The exchanges are screwing people? Lets look at some actual cases shall we?
Salt Lake Tribune – Health exchange: Utah family gets coverage for $123 a month
After plugging in particulars about his family of five, the Salt Lake City business owner was able to compare 38 plans and apply for tax credits to put toward his monthly premiums. He settled on a silver-level plan from Altius that retails for about $850 a month.
After tax credits, the Sherburnes will pay just $123 a month.
“It’s a great deal. I’m thrilled to have coverage, period,” said Sherburne, who was previously shut out of affordable insurance due to a pre-existing condition, a shoulder injury.
KNTV – Obamacare in Calif. Saves One Family $400 a Month
Right now Rakesh Rikhi pays $950 a month to insure himself, his wife and two children with Kaiser.
He came to the health trust in San Jose to get help determining if the new affordable care act truly will be affordable.
Rikhi was stunned to learn that through covered California he can get a similar Kaiser plan for his family for $400 less a month.
He quickly did the math and found he had just saved $5,000 a year.
KQED – Newly Enrolled in Covered California — One San Franciscan’s Story
Covered California will not be releasing any enrollment figures until mid-November, but San Franciscan Paul Cello says he’s already in — and reports his new insurance will have better benefits, at lower monthly cost than the plan he’s on now…
He enrolled in a Blue Shield PPO plan with a $1,500 deductible and maximum out-of-pocket costs of $5,000. Because he qualifies for a subsidy, he’ll pay $178 a month, shaving more than $300 a month off what he pays now.
“It’s like a whole ‘nother world,” he enthused.“The coverage is better … a lower premium, no pre-existing condition exclusions, I get mental health coverage, so there’s way more coverage than I had and I’m going to be saving.”
It's been the insurance industry that's been screwing people Carol by conning them into buying junk policies that if they really needed to use them would cost them more than what they saved on low premiums.
