The whole point is you tried to say that McCONNALL was never notified.
If that's the whole point then re-reading my post will end this discussion real quick.

I didn't try to say anything. I asked if the OP has met McConnell and let him know her feelings. She still hasn't replied.

Your "whole point" is as lost as a fart in a hurricane.

Pay all the doctors a set salary. Let the government buy and supply the hospitals. Get rid of the insurance companies, and regulate the hell out of the drug companies. When we don't have to pay a 1000 dollars plus a day for a hospital stay, and don't have to pay 150 a pill or more for some medications I will be happy.

The doctors and hospital's high cost on every item is due to attorneys filing frivolous lawsuits. This in turn, hikes up the physcian's malpractice insurance to sky high rates, so they as every other business passed the cost to paying patients.

They also raise the rates on each item or procedure due to the loss in no-pay patients such as illegal aliens, people either too poor to pay for insurance or rather spend their money on something else as a new car or home mrtg.

The cost of people recieving welfare and medicaid is also passed on to the paying patients because Medicaid/Medicare only pay a portion of the bill.

The only ones I see that are damaged and hurt from this is the working middle-class people who will foot the bill.

The rich will not because most who are in government receive free, no out of pocket expense courteous of paying tax payers.

The only way to stop the abuse on the middle class is elect a leader who knows what they are doing and doing it for the people.

Obama wants the middle class to be taxed more to pay for the deficit caused by paragraph two.

Our admin. as the previous admin get donations from pharmaceutical companies to allow them to charge the rates they do.

Our admin. does not want to make Health Insurance affordable by going out of state to look for better and competing rates. They do not want to cap the lawsuit amounts for frivolous and actual malpractice cases.

They need to put the caps on those 150 dollar pills and stop hiring so many lawyers.I agree that insurance companies are all about providing jobs to stop paying on ligitament claims and could even provide preventive medicine.

Everyone who live in KY and is a Dem heres a little phrase I made up

"Its hard to be blue in a red state"

and for the Louisville Cardnal fans:

"Its hard to bleed red in a bleed blue state"

No but for real now: I 100% back Barack Husain Obama! And there is already a gov. plan its call welfare, food stamps, and a medical card. Their all free but you have to be lazy, unemployed, or make only poverish wages to get them. or LIE like hell on the application forms.We are in debt Obama is the way out, McConnell can "SUCK IT" as far as Im concerned. And most of the back woods rednecks that live in KY eat sleep and breath Rush Limbaugh he a piece of sh*t too!

*Disclaimer* This is an opinion much like everythang else blogged about on topix.com . So before you bash you better have more than an opinion! Thank you!

There is a government plan for people too irresponsible to pay for their own living. Just because someone is on welfare, this is not because they have to be poor, its because the majority want to be poor and not work.

As for "its free", nothing is free, someone is picking up the cost for this "freebie" and the someone is getting off of their butts and working.

I 100% donot support Obama's socialist healthcare. If one has any common sense about them, they would be educated to what the proposal is all about and it AIN'T good for the working tax payer, mostly the middle class.

I'd put you in the "backwoods" category.

You obviously were promoted through an educational system that did not have the wherewithal to properly instruct their charges in the correct use of punctuation, spelling, and other easily-learned rules of grammar.

If that's not the case, then you're not quite bright enough to comprehend them. Either way, you've earned the "backwoods" label as much by the way you write as by what you write.

You're saying you choose to write as an uneducated oaf? It's your plan to come across as maybe a little slow in order to better make your point?

Apparently the problem actually wasn't in the quality of your education, it's in the quality of your mental aptitude.

Good luck in your attempts to be taken seriously when you write something as hilariously ironic as "As far a my education Im sure it was just (if not better) then yours buddy!"

Any way "grammer" the subject of this thread is to talk about McConnell not being in touch with the people in the state he represents. Not about a cheap way to make you feel better about your sorry-ass-self. So now ladies and gentelmen continue with bashing or praising Mitch McConnell.........
