when you CHOOSE to buy a mortgage, that's part of the contract.
when you CHOOSE to drive your car on public roads, that's part of the deal.
only idiots pay hundreds a month to save $60 bucks going to the doctor.
what is really going to have all the medicated people up in arms is that they are going to have to pay the 4000-12,000 dollar deductible before their medication is going to be covered, unless of course you are Sandra the slut and your 10 dollar a month birth control will be covered but you will have to pay over 200 dollars a month for the privileged. Now what nut would pay this cost plus their insurance cost? I remember before Hillary Clinton couldn't get her Hillary/O'bamacare passed mostly everyone in the country was healthy and slim and could afford their own healthcare, then Billy Bob Clinton opened up the flood gates and got every one to think they need a pill. Now here we are--the mostly costly part of 'so called health care' is the pharma. So see the government giveth and the government taketh away. These pharma drugged people will be on the streets looking for drugs, just wait. It is coming, O'bama care will put the final nail in coffin of the masses who demand 'health care'. IMHO.

Hey, go back and read what I was responding too....

I completely agree that all citizens should be required to purchase health insurance.
in fact, IMO we should have single payer coverage, just like every other modern industrialized nation

You are the one that compare Sebelius to the fired coaches, see your original post below. I responded to that. Never got into elected vs appointed. My post was just that the coaches had a certain amount of time before being fired, you seem to want to fire Sebelius right away
. Whatever 1049712
Summary...
Browns coach: FIRED
Vikings coach: FIRED
Redskins coach: FIRED
Sebelius: STILL EMPLOYED
I noticed you have altered your post from your original post which equated elected as being the same as appointed. You are in no position to be squawking obfuscation.

Sebelius had 3 years to get it right. Yes, she has been given plenty of time.

Maintenance? ROTFLMAO--if you maintained your body you would never have to go to the doctor. No we are not required by law to carry health insurance. We can pay a fine--and if one is smart you can get your deductibles in line and the IRS cannot take anything.

It's apparent you don't like studies. But here's another one anyway.

How Poor Are America's Poor? Examining the "Plague" of Poverty in America

Robert Rector and Kirk A. Johnson, Ph.D.

"In good economic times or bad, the typical poor family with children is supported by only 800 hours of work during a year: That amounts to 16 hours of work per week. If work in each family were raised to 2,000 hours per year the equivalent of one adult working 40 hours per week throughout the year nearly 75 percent of poor children would be lifted out of official poverty.

"Father absence is another major cause of child poverty. Nearly two-thirds of poor children reside in single parent homes; each year, an additional 1.3 million children are born out of wedlock. If poor mothers married the fathers of their children, almost three-quarters would immediately be lifted out of poverty.

"But if poverty means lacking nutritious food, adequate warm housing, and clothing for a family, relatively few of the 35 million people identified as being 'in poverty' by the Census Bureau could be characterized as poor. While material hardship does exist in the United States, it is quite restricted in scope and severity. The average 'poor' person, as defined by the government, has a living standard far higher than the public imagines."

many people who previously had "free" medical care because they were unable to pay will now have "insurance" that has huge deductibles and copays...
...why would anybody believe they will be able to make those payments???...
arguably they are worse off with so-called "insurance"
liberals and democrats don't think they will pay their bills either, they would sooner let these people die in the streets, IMO that was the liberal plan all along, get rid of what they deemed as dead weight. Eugenics aka O'bamacare.
