I watched the second debate and saw Candy Crowley the fat slob lie about Benghazi. Why on earth Republicans continue to allow corrupt Democrats in the media to host debates is bewildering.
Democrats lie. They are corrupt.
Mitt Romney deserves a portion of the blame for allowing that fat slob Crowley to get away with it.....

And in good news for America
In a final rush to sign up for health insurance on the federal marketplace, the number of Texans enrolling more than doubled in March, exceeding official expectations but still a fraction of the state’s uninsured residents.
Slightly more than half of those who have proven they are eligible to buy plans on the federally run marketplace in Texas — or 734,000 out of 1.4 million people — chose qualified health insurance plans, according to numbers released Thursday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. About 5 million to 6 million Texans lack health insurance, or nearly 1 in 4 — the highest rate in the nation.
Look up CHIP. Apparently, you've never heard of it before.

So you're going to believe the Department of Health and Human Services too? The brainchild behind botching the rollout of which the head of that department had no idea of the numbers until magically the day after the deadline and then had that number nailed down to an exact 7.1 million?

How convenient they figured it out at the very last minute!

Not sure how you handle full-blown cancer. Hope I don't have to find out. But very happy to hear about your wife surviving her battle with cancer.
For now, don't let myself think about it other than positively and sometimes it's easier to block it out. It will become more real around the time of the PET scan.
Surgery was done in your average same day surgery clinic. Surgeon was referred by a dermatologist. Have no problem with the surgeon other than her staff and too many miscommunications.
It's a growing apathy among medical professionals that's the problem. Been that way for a long time though.
Afraid it's only going to get worse.
That's all you can do is think positive and have faith everything will turn out OK in the end. My wife passed her 5 year cancer free mark and is feeling fine. Now she is wearing me out with her new appreciation of life. LOL. I only mentioned that to provide you with a positive outlook.

The poor have always had access to free health clinics in most, if not all, states. They're scattered throughout the state of Florida within a 20 to 30 mile drive. Not to mention ERs.

And, of course, CHIP covers all children.

It's not the poor who are the victims under the ACA. It's the middle class.

Ever wonder how many working class Americans are going to get health care now that they can't afford it?

There was a much better way. Surely, even you can at least acknowledge this. If you were being honest.

More good news for America and the A C A

DOVER – What started with a sputter last October ended with a full-throttle surge in April, as thousands in Delaware and across the nation rushed to sign up for a new health insurance policy before the 2014 deadline arrived.

More than 14,000 Delaware residents got coverage through the government’s new insurance marketplace during the first six-month enrollment period, according to Rita Landgraf, secretary of the state Department of Health and Social Services, in a report Thursday to the Delaware Health Care Commission.

The total, 14,397, was 27 percent higher than the number Landgraf reported last month, reflecting that 11th-hour surge of shoppers.

In addition, more than 4,000 others were found eligible for Medicaid under expanded rules. In all, 18,614 Delaware residents got Obamacare plans, as the new plans are called, or Medicaid coverage. Unlike Obamacare, Medicaid enrollment is possible year-round. But many learned they were eligible for Medicaid while applying for an Obamacare plan.

The state last year estimated that 35,000 of its 92,000 uninsured residents would qualify for an Obamacare plan, and federal officials gave Delaware a goal of enrolling at least 8,000, a mark the state exceeded last month. All who had at least started the enrollment process by the March 31 deadline were allowed to finish, and more than 3,000 were added to the rolls because of that flex.

Everyone knew an attack of some sort was coming somewhere, but nobody could conceive an attack at that scale could occur at Pearl Harbor. The army commander was worried about saboteurs and moved the planes to the center of the airfield unknowingly making them easy targets for Japanese planes.

Can only imagine what she went through. And you as well. But someone having a new outlook on life coming through something like that is easily understandable.

A worrier by nature, thinking positively is the only thing I know how to do in these kinds of situations. Or just block it out. If I didn't, I'd be crying all the time. The surgeon emphasized there was only one cancer cell. And it was removed. I'm holding on to that as a positive sign.

If there is a better way it may be worked out as ACA is reformed. Republicans most likely will Not repeal the ACA.

Homeless people can not drive 20 to 30 miles.

ER's do not provide preventive care.. Early detection of cancer is important and the person needs medical coverage.

Looked like a deer caught in headlines. Half the country had to pick their jaws up off the floor - including me.

It was such a shock that a moderator would say something like that - even if she did admit Romney was right about Obama blaming a video for weeks afterwards. But no one heard that part because they were in such a state of disbelief - including Romney.

It was too late after the moment passed. Obama's remarks egging her on is what made me want to kick the friggin' TV. He sat right there knowing he lied to us about the attack and then acted so smug about having the moderator cover his butt for him during the debate.

It's really very hard for me to accept America has gotten so stupid.

Any homeless person can walk into any ER and be treated.

The majority of the homeless reside in the bigger cities. There's at least a half dozen free clinics right here in Orlando.

If the democrats had concentrated more on lowering the costs of health care and compromised with republicans on solutions that were better than what we have now - which is a lawyer's smorgasbord and a tax nightmare - it would have been a lot cheaper just to treat the poor in ERs and free clinics at the taxpayer's expense. We were doing that anyway.

Obamacare is just making more people homeless.
