Since your first statement is a complete lie, I hope you realize the irony of your second statement

.
Complete lie, Really?

Well tell me then, who picks up the tab for this-

HHS cites reports by Families USA and the journal Health Affairs showing that total uncompensated care in the U.S. was between $56 billion and $73 billion in 2008. Two-thirds of that amount is attributed to hospital care.

I will tell you - People who pay there medical bills!

Think about this for a moment,

You're driving through a school zone , children are present. The speed limit is 20 mph.

Most law abiding citizens will obey the speed limit and the children are protected.

Lets say there were no speed limit, you could drive through that school zone as fast as your vehicle will go. Imagine the carnage.

Some will try it anyway, no law is fool proof, but most folks do obey.

Now do you understand why we need laws to protect us from the ignorance of others.

No irony on my part, just and astounding amount of short sighted ignorance on your behalf.

Lets take this sentence by sentence.

"I agree you should not have to pay for someone else, and Obama Care goes a long way in reducing that amount."

You have been advocating for Obama's cause of wealth redistribution since he was elected so you DO believe someone else should pay for unpaid medical bills as well as everything else people SAY they can't pay for. As long as those people are of the uninformed lower socio-economic class variety

Obamacare doesn't reduce anything. It simply takes money from one pot that hard working Americans are paying for, increases the amount that has to be paid, and places it in another pot. Besides, what is going to happen when those young Americans, Obama had planned on paying for this disaster, choose to pay the fine at whatever level instead of getting insurance they can't afford and they have to get health care for lets say a terminal illness or they get in a car accident and will die without treatment? Who pays for that?

"Unfortunately for the common good of the Republic we do need laws to protect people from the ignorance of other people."

Now we're back to the irony of your statement.

Yes we are back to the Irony, the irony of you telling me I have no idea what I am talking about while you are denying the truth.

You are simply clueless of what your talking about, you are repeating the propaganda of the talking head attention whores who would say anything to raise their ratings.

Case in point-

The Labor Department’s price index for medical care — a figure that includes individuals’ outlays for insurance, medical supplies, doctor visits and hospital stays — fell a seasonally adjusted 0.1% in May

The last time medical costs posted a monthly decline, the patent on the modern MRI machine was a year old and the first test-tube baby was three years from being born. That was 1975.

Show me the numbers to back up your opinion!

Other reports have also uncovered a slowdown in cost increases. The number of double-digit rate increases requested by health insurers in the individual market has plummeted over the past four years and Medicare’s projected spending between 2010 and 2020 had dropped by over $500 billion. Under the new cost scenario, the entitlement program would, by 2085, make up 4 percent of the economy instead of the previously projected 7 percent.

Annual growth of medical spending has also slowed “from a high of about 8.8 percent in 2003 to an average of about 3 percent per capita from 2009 to 2011, according to data reported in January by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.”

Sorry, I was wrong

Senator Al Franken released figures today highlighting more benefits of ObamaCare, including Franken’s own rule that if insurance companies don’t meet the new standards established by the ACA, they have to send consumers a rebate.“In 2012, more than 9,000 consumers in Minnesota benefited from an average rebate of approximately $300 per family,” Franken’s office said in a statement

Did I say you didn't know what you were talking about? I don't think so. MAY?! people didn't start getting dropped until October. So that means all the old policies were still in place in May. What do those numbers have to do with anything anyway? Nobody has been able to get insurance through the exchanges yet. Sure thousands have signed up but there is no mechanism to pay for any policies through the website. So you're suggesting that insurance companies are getting people insurance, at least those that haven't been dropped.

I was wrong, really, really wrong,

Rebate would buy a few fill-ups
According to data compiled by Kaiser, the states with the highest average rebates per family last year were Washington ($512), Delaware ($495), Massachusetts ($457), Minnesota ($303) and Wyoming ($284). States with the most rebate recipients in 2012 included California (1.4 million), Texas (726,000), New York (634,000) and Florida (614,000).

Assuming your information from the administration that manipulates data is true (I don't believe for a second that it is), for those who's premium cost has gone down, what about their deductible? Probably not any statistics for that from your liberal sources. As for medical spending, the costs have to have gone down because there's not as much money in the fund because Obama and his administration raided Medicare in order to put Obamacare in place. Has any government projections ever been right? Especially one that predicts something so large as entitlement spending in the year 2085? Putting that in your post is a sign that you are grasping for straws.

So now Barney is trying to say I said something I didn't say. Staple liberal tactic. Translation for what BARNEY said? "Man, I wish you hadn't pulled the deductible card"
