Why does a person without insurance pay a higher cost for prescriptions than an insured one? The medication is the same.

How long do you think before New York City slides backwards to the David Dinkins high crime, grafiti era with its new liberal Mayor who got elected cause his kid has an afro and he promised "equality" and "fairness"?
During yesterday's inauguration, numerous libs knocked former Mayor Bloomberg's policies. Meanwhile, Bloomberg was a successful businessman who followed Guiliani, a successful prosecutor. Their leadership brought NYC back from being another lib run cesspool.
In true lib fashion, an empty suit politician was elected by the lowest voter turnout in years. We might as well have Al Sharpton sitting in Gracie mansion.

Sit back and watch the decline. Squeegee men and thugs are rejoicing.

Throwing your marbles into the air and running away isn't answering the questions, moron.
Here they are again in case you ever feel like answering them:

Would you be talking about muslim terrorist organizations in policy making positions in Obama's White House?
Or, would you be talking about Obama lying for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the US in Benghazi?
Or, would you be talking about Hillary lying to Congress?
Or, would you be talking about Eric Holder lying to Congress?
Or, would you be talking about the NSA unconstitutionally spying on Americans?
Or, would you be talking about the IRS consulting with the White House over a hundred times to target TEA Party organizations?
Or, would you be talking about Moochelle's old classmate from Princeton who owns a foreign company getting a contract for 93 million dollars to build the ObamaKare website disaster and stole the software for instead of writing it like we paid her to do, ultimately costing us a billion dollars for a website that would have cost less then 50 million dollars to build in the private economy that still doesn't work, after she demonstrated her complete incompetence when she got a contract from the Canadian government to build a gun registry that never worked even after a hundred million dollar cost overrun?
Or, would you be talking about Obama being indoctrinated in hatred of the United States his entire life?
Or, would you be talking about Obama being an ignorant buffoon propped up to make it look like someone's actually president while Vallerie Jarrett is the actual president?
Or, would you be talking about Obama being a dropout from Occidental College and followed his boyfriend, who actually did transfer from Occidental to Columbia, to New York where nobody in the entire student body or faculty ever met him?
Or, would you be talking about Obama not being a US citizen when he traveled to Pakistan while it was on the US State Department's "no travel" list in 1981?
Or, would you be talking about when Obama lied about being born in Kenya?
Or, would you be talking about when Obama lied about being born in Hawaii?
... and on, and on, and on.
Here's a couple of questions you never answered:
Did Obama lie when he said he was born in Kenya, or did Obama lie when he said he was born in Hawaii?
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Banghazi?
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Try and imagine the most radical rightwing conservative you can muster who only served in the U.S. Senate for two years with no real world experience in a leadership capacity and little, if any, contributions as a politician who had connections with fringe rightwing zealots and organizations and who felt it was his mission to single-handedly change this nation into a staunch rightwing country after going about the business of pushing a signature piece of legislation to do so during an economic crisis of which the majority were against and which excluded any input from Democrats but yet still passed on a strictly partisan Republican vote.
Then try and imagine this president demonizing Democrats at every opportunity and blaming them for not falling in line and simply going along with his personal vision.
If you can imagine that even for a split second, then you know what it's like to be a conservatives over the past five years.
In this real world scenario - only with the shoe on the other foot - you can imagine Democrats would be a little vocal too. Rightfully so. The difference is so would a lot of Republicans.
We still have three branches of power and one party was never meant to monopolize the system for party power against the will of the people for political gain.
Imagine this same radical rightwing president looking the other way in an IRS scandal which literally interrogated liberal individuals and organizations after denying them the same tax exemptions as conservative ones.
It's a lot to imagine, I know. But at least you know what it's like being in our shoes.
Not happy with President Obama.
Democrats were not happy with President Bush.

All of this "Illegal", "Drug Mules", Anchor Babies and "Terrorists" stuff is just a "vast right-wing conspiracy" as Hillary Hog Thighs would say.
Good morning. Do you thugs ever take a break? Geez!

I used to be an advocate for sending all illegals packing until I was convinced that just isn't feasible (thank you, Ronald Reagan). I even used to refer to them as "criminals" but, since police don't arrest anyone for being an illegal immigrant that hardly seems appropriate. I support changing our laws to deny automatic citizenship to "anchor babies" and firmly believe that is the only action that will curb the flow of illegals across our border.

That said, most illegal immigrants are of no risk or danger to us. They are hardworking people looking for a way to feed their families. Detention centers are full of them. Those who are "Criminals" are in jail.

More bad news for Vallerie Jarrett and Obama.
Putin said in his New Year message to the Russian people heís going to ďannihilate the Islamist terroristsĒ this year. He was speaking globally.
Letís review some recent US history.
Obama surrendered to the Islamist terrorists, and is now assisting their invasions and attempts to take over muslim countries. Today, right now, as we speak, the Armed Forces of the United States are training Al Qaeda terrorists from around the Arab world on a US military base in Jordan, arming them, then sending them into Syria to help the Suni Islamist invasion. No doubt the Syrians have captured a few of them by now, to be used when the time is right for their propaganda purposes.
What will happen when Syria decides to bomb that US military base in Jordan training Al Qaeda terrorists to smithereens?
Some more recent US history.
The ignorant buffoons running the White House stumbled into a trap in Syria set by Putin a goddam blind person could see. The end result was the US lost every bit of credibility in the Middle East, and has absolutely nothing to do with anything that happens there now. Putin said heís going to annihilate the Islamists terrorists. That means, because the White House is part of the Islamist terrorist network, and they are the most ignorant government in the entire world, itís a no-brainer those clowns will stumble into another trap a blind person can see.
Putin is looking to make a very clear statement to the world that Russia is the most significant enemy of Islamist imperialism today. The reality of that statement is, that makes the White House that is obviously part of the Islamist terrorist network the enemy in the westís resistance against Islamist imperialism. It would be just like these ignorant clowns running the White House today to stumble into a trap that will show the US and Al Qaeda huddled together for the world to see. When that happens, Putin will show the world that Russia is serious about annihilating the Islamist threat to the world.
You people propping up Obama are the most ignorant people in the world today.
When Putin makes him move, donít be surprised if Americans donít support your anti-American, anti-Constitution, racist, bigoted, Marxist communist, Islamist, treasonous pathological lying fraud Obama. Americans are still fighting the war the Arab Islamists started. Itís only Obama and the Democrats that have surrendered to Al Qaeda and joined them. Americans are still on the side of the United States.
Your hero Vladdy Boy can't even put down a rebellion in Chechyna that began in the 1990's.

His chances of supressing the restive muslim republics is slim to none. Expect more and bigger bombings.

He's looking the fool worldwide, so now he's releasing all his political prisioners to show what a nice guy he is.

The Sochi Olympics will be a disaster for Russia, and esp. for your hero, Vladdy Boy.

Funny how deep your admiration for Communists is. That's why you're a Ted Cruz fanboy.

Play your cards right with Vladdy Boy and you could be the 2nd American buried at the Kremlin.

Actually, it's going to just keep getting worse in the next two decades according to the CBO and Obama's own signature law.
The national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, according to a new projection released today by the Congressional Budget Office, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law.
Here is the 2012 through 2022 Congressional Budget Officeís most recent extended baseline budget scenario:

It's the "alternative fiscal scenario" graph you have to look at.

I used to have friends that said ignorant sht like that.
I liked this from the comments on that article on the appendicitis:

"I've audited family medical bills for years that had line items listed for ridiculous amounts, and had them either reduced and/or eliminated from bills, many that were 100% covered by insurance. The insurance companies should be doing complete audits on what they pay out for the premiums you pay, but it's easier for them to be lazy and pass the difference off to you in premiums and 'non covered' costs. It isn't just what you're getting overcharged, but what the insurance companies are being overcharged and passed back to you in the form of higher premiums. Needless to say, I'm not the most popular person for medical billing folks."

Chrysler now an Italian company, courtesy of US taxpayers...
U.S. automaker Chrysler will become fully owned by Italy's Fiat under terms of an agreement announced Wednesday that also involves the United Auto Workers union.
The agreement comes more than 4-1/2 years after the Obama administration brought Fiat in to keep Chrysler in business as part of a packaged bankruptcy proceeding.
In a statement, Fiat said it has agreed to pay $3.65 billion for the 41.46% of Chrysler it doesn't already own from the UAW's medical benefits trust for retirees.

Sure we do.
Ted Cruz is a Communist Plant in the US Senate.
Born in Calgary,Canada, under the socialist free healthcare system.
His father fought alongside Fidel Castro to being Communism to Cuba.
He was sent north to infiltrate the democracies of North America. Canadians were too smart for th ecommunists, so they moved to Texas, where people are so stupid they elect armadillos.
And you're a sick racist with the stupidity to use a ptbw moniker, thus proving your outsider status to the human race.
Any other questions, scumbag??
Well, first, let's set the record straight.

Ted Cruz served as the director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission, an Associate Deputy Attorney General at the United States Department of Justice, and as Domestic Policy Advisor to U.S. President George W. Bush. Cruz was an Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin where he taught U.S. Supreme Court litigation from 2004 to 2009.

Now, as to his father...Rafael Bienvenido Cruz...born in Matanzas, Cuba, once believing Castro's vision (like you believe Obama's) but ended up protesting the regime and "suffered beatings and imprisonment" when "the rebel leader took control and began seizing private property and suppressing dissent" (like progressive liberals).

His father fled Cuba at the age of 18 and studied at the University of Texas. Cruz's younger sister fought in the counter-revolution and was tortured by the new regime. This was not lost on young Cruz's hatred of communism.

The elder Cruz worked his way through college as a dishwasher, making 50 cents an hour earning a degree in mathematics. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2005.

There now. All done. You're welcome.

The article does not say anything about what the person had for a policy so how can you even start to make a judgment? Maybe the patient had a policy that covered 80% and that is what the person wanted.

You liberals are all the same. You make judgments and spew hyperbole without having any details. You don't think logically, just emotionally like a stoned high school kid.

Like I say to the television when one of those ghosts-are-real shows is on: Show me the ghost.

Show me the government shutdown.
There was no government shutdown. Only 13% of government spending was affected. Coincidentally, that's about how much government spending has to be cut every year to avoid certain collapse because... you may need to write this down... money doesn't grow on trees, moron.
If nothing else works, do the same thing again. To anyone who can actually count money, a government shutdown is a good thing. Let's see it for real this time. If you're going to claim there is a government shutdown, the least you could do is shut the government down to prove it.
