CONVERSATION TIPS

http://www.barackobama.com/health-care-holida...

Start by asking:“Have you thought about signing up for health insurance on the new marketplace?”

Offer to walk them through it:“Would you like to take some time with me to sign up right now?”

Ask them to make a plan, and commit to it:“When do you plan on signing up?”

Don’t forget to follow up:“Have you signed up yet?”

(Hope everyone is taking notes...)

Okay, now that we're all informed about "having the talk" tomorrow, does anyone else feel a little stupid now for having even read it?

Obama's decision to postpone Obamacare's mandate that large businesses pay for employees' healthcare violates the Constitution. Since that decision contravenes the Constitution's requirement that a president take care that "the Laws be faithfully executed," Obama should be impeached, and convicted of the "high crime" of abuse of power.

It's not going to happen...but I can dream.

And part of me wants to wait and see what's going to happen next.

Way to go. Let's just cut to the chase and go straight to a dictatorship.

Because this sounds very much like every dictator in history and every supporter of a dictatorship.

Random post on the dummies in the south...

"Great! Just what the "South" needs is another New Yorker telling us how poor and uneducated we all are and how we should expand Medicaid because, after all, the Federal government is paying for it and it will create jobs, of course, all having been said, I assume, without the writer having spent much time in the South. Another commenter states that the South must improve health care and education if it is to attract industry. I must remind you that the South(Texas) is home to JC Penney, once based in NYC, a Mercedes-Benz factory, expanded three times since it was built, a BMW factory, VW, Kia, Nissan and Toyota factories. The South is also HQ for Michelin USA. I could go on, but hopefully you get the point. We aren't all ignorant and without healthcare in the South. I just have to remember when I see all the vehicles with NY, NJ, CT plates at our universities and companies, I know that something good here must have inspired them to move here!"

When politicians offer...the proletariat come...

"Offering free or heavily subsidized care is inevitably going to increase overall use of the health care system.....

...Figures from the early years of the Medicaid program indicate the vast increase in demand that can result. According to a Brookings Institution study, in 1964, before Medicaid went into effect, those above the poverty line saw physicians about 20 percent more frequently than did the poor; by 1975, the poor were visiting physicians 18 percent more often than the nonpoor. Again, before Medicaid, those with low incomes had only half as many surgical procedures as those with middle-class incomes; by 1970, the rate for low-income people was 40% higher than for those with middle class incomes.[1] When Medicare was instituted in 1966, the House Ways and Means Committee estimated that by 1990, allowing for inflation, the program would cost $12 billion; the actual figure was $107 billion.[2](Government forecasts of the costs of entitlement programs are never accurate. In many cases, like this one, they do not even get the order of magnitude correct.)"

Progressive math...

Is this correct?

"Medicare Part A: In 1965, the House Ways and Means Committee estimated that Medicare Part A, the hospital insurance part of the Medicare program, would cost $9 billion in 1990.(4) Once again, they were wrong. The actual cost of Part A in 1990 was $67 billion."

"Social Security: When the Social Security Act of 1935 was being debated in Congress, the cost projections for the program extended all the way to 1980. At that time, it was estimated that the federal government would pay out $4 billion in Social Security payments in 1980.(9) In reality it paid out a staggering $108 billion."

Is this correct?
"End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Program: Congress passed entitlement legislation that provided kidney dialysis for citizens suffering from ESRD in 1972. It was predicted that the program would cost taxpayers $100 million in 1974.11 The estimates were off and the program ended up costing $229 million in that year"

Progressives and the never empty teat...

Is this true?

"The Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital (DHS) Program: The Medicaid DHS Program is used by states to aid hospitals that treat a high number of Medicaid and uninsured patients. In 1987, Congress estimated that the cost the program would be $1 billion in 1992.13 The actual cost was 17 times larger than the congressional estimate. Medicaid DHS cost taxpayers $17 billion in 1992."

Maybe it's best just to wait for the fallout of ObamaCare. Then see what happens next.
If the Magic Negro were to be impeached .....we'd have Joe "Dental" Biden in charge?

God forbid.

Right now, we've got Black Tooth and White Fang in there.

We need a complete extraction and not a partial....
