<quoted text>and a good morning to you Mr. Hyperbolee.
What ?

No rebuttal.

If course, none is possible.

Right Wingers love socialism - as long as it's flowing from the wallets of working Americans into their open, greedy, grasping claws.

That way their mouths are open to bitch that someone, somewhere, is trying to make them contribute to the cause.

As the Right Wing Mottos say:

"If it comes to me - I earned it - if it goes to you - you didn't"

or

"I'm a true Right Winger - I pay for nothing, take everything, and whine like a little baby if anyone even hits I should sacrifice anything for anybody"

or

"Waaaaah", "Waaaaah" "Waaaaaah"

Published 2009.

"In the economic crisis, public hospitals are needed now more than ever. If you're down on your luck without insurance, the county hospital can be your last resort.

Recently thousands of letters went out across Las Vegas telling cancer patients that the only public hospital in the state was closing its outpatient clinic for chemotherapy.

It's the next thing in the recession - communities cutting back on services like schools or cops or public hospitals because tax revenues have fallen with the economy.

One of the charity patients who got that letter in Las Vegas is Helen Sharp, who didn't realize how a crash on Wall Street might threaten her life.

"I don't want to die. I shouldn't have to die. This is a county hospital. This is for people that, like me, many people have lost their insurance, have not any other resources. I mean I was a responsible person. I bought my house. I put money away. I raised my two children. And now I have nothing. You know my house isn't worth anything. I have no money. And I said 'What do I do, but what do all these other people do after me?''And they said we don't know,'" Sharp told 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley."

Pretending to give a damn about Helen- now that's rich.

All good Right Wingers are shouting: "Let the old coot die !!!"

She should have saved for retirement and had enough for her medical care, even if she lives to be 97.

If she didn't - or couldn't - then ghats just too damn bad - what's it too me.

That's called capitalism, by God - that's the America we know and love. Freedom means winners and losers and guess what Helen - you lost.

Too bad - so sad.

Heck, even Jesus was a Capitalist - remember his words "Suffer the little children to come into me- as long as they got the bucks to make it worth my while - I don't want no sweaty, stinkin sick poor kids around messing up my fine robes".

We don't want no socialist public hospital system, socialist education system, or socialist law enforcement system anyway.

So Helen - sorry - but would you mind digging that grave and jumpin in - we don't want to have to pay to bury you either- that's not our problem.

Now we just gotta kill Social Security and Medicare - ain't nothing more Socialist than those two communist inspired programs.

Hey, anybody seen my Social Security check - that's OK- when the check has my name on it - it ain't socialism - you understand.

Maybe you libtards can tell us how any medical facility can stay in business to care for the sick when the workers have no money to pay their bills, buy food, buy the necessary medicene to treat cancer patients,or care for their children.
I want to hear your answer on how any business can stay in business when the money don't pay the bills.

Oh, I know, keep putting us further and further into debt until the ceiling crashes in. Then everyone will do without medical care, food, etc.
As one poster has said many times, u r not too smart, are u.

"...not surprisingly, economists have found that the more beneficiaries an insurer signs up, the deeper the discounts it obtains."

Sounds like single payer is the way to go to hold down costs.

Medicare: A Plan B for Part D
Congress should rescind its rule prohibiting Medicare from negotiating drug prices.
December 21, 2012
http://articles.latimes.com/2012/dec/21/opini...

One of the most popular benefits of Medicare is the Part D prescription drug program, which enables seniors and the disabled to buy taxpayer-subsidized coverage for many of the most widely prescribed medicines. When it created the costly benefit in 2003, though, Congress provided no way to pay for the subsidies, which have cost more than $300 billion so far. Worse, it barred the government from negotiating with drug makers for better prices an extra gift to the pharmaceutical industry, which already stood to gain from the increased demand for its newly subsidized products....

Medicare Part D is often held out as a successful model for government benefit programs because it uses market forces to help hold down costs. Specifically, private insurers vie with one another to sign up Medicare beneficiaries, competing both on price and on the specific drugs they cover. Just how effectively those forces have held down Part D's costs is subject to some debate, however....

Nevertheless, the competition harnessed by Part D undoubtedly lowers costs to some extent. Today, insurers negotiate with drug manufacturers for discounts to help lower their premiums; not surprisingly, economists have found that the more beneficiaries an insurer signs up, the deeper the discounts it obtains.

So why not let Medicare negotiate directly on behalf of all its beneficiaries, as the Veterans Administration does? Drug manufacturers argue that there's little difference between Medicare "negotiating" and the government setting a take-it-or-leave-it price that the industry couldn't afford to reject. Price-setting would be problematic among other things, it would encourage manufacturers to shift costs from Medicare beneficiaries onto other customers...

The downside of reducing Medicare's spending on drugs is that it would cut into drug makers' revenue, which industry lobbyists warn would reduce investment in the research and development that leads to therapeutic breakthroughs. There are mitigating factors, however. The industry's investment is being buoyed now by the arguably excessive profits the industry extracts from Medicare recipients. Part D wasn't intended to be an indirect subsidy for pharmaceutical R&D. Besides, a 2010 study showed that about half of the innovative drugs approved over a 10-year period resulted from discoveries by universities and biotech firms, not drug manufacturers, most of whose new products were variations of older ones....

Don't get too hung up on the location indicator, it only indicates the location of your provider's router (or is it login server), which ever HE CK, or TSPLOST, or Amos-1 could tell you all the gory details but it doesn't seem to be posting anymore, or maybe it still is having morphed into a new incarnation, or is that a pink carnation.

Thanks for another emotionally driven nonsensical diatribe completely devoid of any facts or rational analysis.

Every time you do it - it proves the emotional and intellectual superiority of the Moderates and Progressives.

Yep, all over the world intelligent people are learning and improving by reading "boring" facts and accumulating knowledge.

But not Right Wingers - they proudly announce facts are "boring" and criticize those who present the facts for consideration.

I hope you pass that attitude on to your kids - the successful educated kids who learned to enjoy accruing knowledge will need people to low their lawns and wash their cars.

Is that how you see it ?

Oh, the pain...

My heart is rendered asunder by the thought that when you and all three of your Right Wing friends gather together for "Spam" potluck night and watch Fox Noise, you might not raise your glasses of Metamucil in my honor.

Please, don't fret on my account - just take your Xanax and relax. Don't worry, as usual, we taxpayers will pay for them.

Somehow, I'll carry on with the thought that my list of admirers is limited to those who can at least spell the word "rational".

Hey, wish I could respond thoroughly right now, but I'm in the office working to pay the taxes necessary to provide you with Socialist Security and Socialist Medicare and Socialist Medicare Part D.

Let us know how else you'dije to sponge of the taxpayer while pretending you aren't.

Somebody has to support the Right Wing Parasites living off the rest of us while refusing to contribute to the cause.

That Right Wing creed: when I get it - it ain't socialist.
