I have to ask again. Why did Democrats reject health care reform back in 1974?
Nixon believed strongly in a national health insurance plan.
He stated,“The time is at hand this year to bring comprehensive, high quality health care within the reach of every American.”
His employer mandate to provide health insurance as part of his planned universal health care coverage for all citizens was seen as inadequate by many democrats in congress.
It was opposed by unions such as the AFL-CIO and the United Autoworkers as well who lobbied hard to defeat the legislation.
Ironic, isn't it? The same unions who lobbied hard against Nixon's universal health care plan but without big government intrusion lobbied hard for Obamacare and are now crying alligator tears.
Seems liberals AND unions get stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Seems like Lois Lame missed her morning meds. Let's see what what else happened in 1974__let's hone in on August 9, 1974.

What happened on that day babe, that may have upstaged health care reform? What led up to that day that may have upstaged health care reform? Hint: it had nothing to do with Wilbur Mills taking a dip in the tidal basin.

<quoted text>“I keep playing that over and over in my head: that you can keep your health plan, period,” said Terri Flay, a Manassas, Virginia, woman whose policy is being canceled, referring to Obama’s pledge.“But it isn’t ‘period.’ They put a gun to my head saying that I have to pay more because I need the health-care insurance.”
The unanswered question is "when did she get her insurance policy?" If it was after the passing of the Affordable Care Act, there was never any expectation that the policy couldn't be cancelled. Period. That should have been pretty clear from the beginning.

Obama was right when he said "you will be able to keep your doctor, you can keep your plan" but he should have realized that 50% of the people in the U.S. have IQ's below 100 and prefaced it with "if your policy was in effect at the time of passing the ACA there is nothing in the proposal that forces anyone to change the insurance they have..."

Then he should have, once again, recalled the average IQ level and clarified that nothing in the ACA prevents insurers or employers from making changes as they always have done in the past.

What we are really dealing with here is Republicans trying to kill the ACA before it gets started. Period. You know very well that once it is working and more and more people are covered, the ACA will be virtually impossible to repeal and that just scare the hell out of you.

One week from today, a year ago, all these right wing losers were validated as losers. They have spent the last 358 days whining about Obama, the winner, but not one minute acknowledging why THEY are losers. That is why THEY will continue to be losers. THEY aren't capable of anything except whining.
Obama will continue to try to make America a better place because he thinks like a winner.

Carry on morons.

No one really gives a sh*t if you die from colon cancer or lug cancer or a heart attack.

The idea of Obamacare is to give more people ACCESS.

If you want to ignore that access, that is totally up to you.

A discussion on colon cancer screening to you f*king right whiners becomes a joke.

It shows you people have a mental age of about eight.

Shooter acquitted in west Boca road rage trial

Retired dentist Wayne Tover claimed self-defense in 2010 incident

September 27, 2013|By Marc Freeman, Sun Sentinel

It was an extreme case of road rage — starting with a honking horn, flashing lights and angry words, and ending with four quick shots from an older driver's revolver.

But a Palm Beach County jury on Friday sided with gun-toting retiree Wayne Tover's claim of self-defense for the Sept. 18, 2010 confrontation in West Boca.

A two-week trial ended with the jury of four women and two men agreeing that the 66-year-old former dentist from West Delray was protecting himself when he fired his licensed pistol into a car occupied by four young people.

The shooting left one person with bullet wounds that were not life-threatening, and another passenger with cuts from shattered glass. Prosecutor Aaron Papero argued it was an inexcusable act of violence, but the jurors delivered a not guilty verdict on the four felony counts

Get back to us when you're kid is shot or killed.

Boy, have times changed...

I remember my sister getting one year of "diaper service" as a gift for her first child's baby shower. There was actually a service who came by and picked up dirty cloth diapers, washed them and returned them.

Disposable diapers hadn't even been thought of yet.

Now I feel old.

The idea you f*cking whiny littler sh*ts are having such a fit now is just proof you know little about buying insurance because you've always gotten it through your employer or thru the government.
You are a prime example of this type of ignorance. But I suspect you get your healthcare from the neighborhood witch doctor & they don't take insurance. When you get sick, the WD comes over & waves a smoking pouch of leaves & dogshit over your body & you're healed.
Well Davey, the last part is what is actually practiced in Obama's home town in Kenya after he's eaten the dog.

Odd, she didn't become Chancellor until Nov. 22, 2005. But then again, maybe the more astute previous administration saw her as an up and coming conservative star.
"Merkel advocated a strong transatlantic partnership and German-American friendship. In the spring of 2003, defying strong public opposition, Merkel came out in favour of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, describing it as "unavoidable" and accusing Chancellor Gerhard Schröder of anti-Americanism." I'll bet she's changed her opinion now that we're stuck with the dithering fool as president.
This is so sad. A strong American ally turns her back.

I've said it before but it bears repeating to the airhead Liberals here.

This Jerk-In-Chief's legacy will be one where he presided over and initiated America's global decline. He's proud of pursuing his Marxist father's wishes.

He is rotting America from within and from without with a big evil smile on his face.

Are you saying that a Mormon man with several wives and several children who are all on welfare and foodstamps is okay with you?

I will clarify this to you; I don't think people should have children unless and until they can afford to support them. If you are able bodied and can work; you should be working.

My chiropractors wife said to me last week: "all these young women are having their babies on Medicaid; they're getting free or low priced section 8 housing; and......they're white!"

I said to her; "Imagine that, and you thought it was only blacks who did this stunt"?

Had to chuckle.

Welfare and foodstamps are a temporary measure; there is no more long term welfare. If there was universal single payer healthcare paid through taxation, then everyone would be covererd. Period.
That is the only solution.
