It's quite obvious that you are out of touch with reality for Seniors on Medicare. If I had to pay $440 a month per person, I'd already be fcuking myself. Try $129 X 2 for basic. Then 0 per month premiums for Part B. I opted for for higher co-pays in the event I needed those services. The extra 10-15$$ per doctor visits,(6 per year x 2) is squat compared to $440/month. So why don't YOU go fcuk yuorself until you become of age to know what you're talking about, Sonny. So there.
Wrongo, Bongo. 6 Doctor Visits, TOTAL. Uh, that be three(3) each. Originally I said 6 X 2. Just in case you get that free calculator out and question my real life decision numbers.

Final answer? It doesn't really matter since I'm too busy fcuking myself and paying $1,500/mo for two to pay any attention. You old farts have got it going on for tiny money...now I know why the folks in The Villages don't care about STDs.

This whole discussion began with my displeasure with Insurance companies sending out cancellation letters to retirees saying they will no longer service their areas or dropping their Doctors from their individual programs forcing them to go elsewhere. At my F.I. L's age (93) he's lucky to find the car keys. Yup, he's still driving. Doesn't need GPS to find the OTB. LOL But tell him he can't see his Doctors and has to find another Healthcare Company and he goes batshit. Me? I'm good.

The reason for no fear of STD's is because he has to pour in it with a spoon just to have it fall out. All they really care about is that their golf carts start up to go to the activity center or the store for those Depends.

Try not to talk to me until after August, m'kay? I'll be a full time "taker" by then but up until that time I'll still be paying in to the system and will therefore not need to take any of your nonsense. The first step in curing a problem is admitting it exists. Our healthcare system was broken long before Obamacare.

I'm glad you said it. Nobody was screaming about losing coverage until this BS with OUR individual choices of Health Care. I thought exactly the same thing when TRD made that idiotic statement. Let's face it. He's shoveling sh!t against the tide of dissatisfaction in this argument, but, like the people who elected the Dictator, they see nothing but good. In this type of argument, they keep throwing stuff against the wall until something sticks. Uzi, you are a bad boy. The Commander is going to revoke your Pilot Glo Ring privileges.

Again...Obama is the biggest FRAUD the world has ever known!

Obama has been exposed now with his deception and his convoluted speeches,preaching and selling his criminal snake oil bill called the Obamacare tax!

He has the illusions that of a NARCISSIST using FALSEHOODS and blame while appeasing to our enemies!

OBAMA IS A VERY DANGEROUS MAN!

Once again, you have me confused with someone who's give-a-shit isn't broken...an injury which occurred while fighting insurance battles and is not covered under any plan because a case can be made for the pre-existing nature of the complaint.

How hard is it for you to understand that there are people in this country who can't get insurance at any price? That it's become practically impossible for people to receive contiguous care since as soon as they develop a chronic condition they are marked by their insurance company for cancellation? Why can't you grasp that just because it was working for you doesn't mean the system was working?

Oh, poor me for not understanding. Kind of like selling something and the customer continually does not pay you. Gov't says you have to keep selling to that "customer" because they don't give a sh!t about your bottom line. So we have capitalism vs socialism. Any hospital I have visited has signs posted that state they cannot refuse to treat me regardless of my ability to pay. But, you keep on throwing that stuff against the wall.

And that seems OK to you?

I'm going to give you the same chance I gave Pumbaa to not be a moron when talking with me. You can call it socialism or any other fcuking thing you want but it doesn't change the fact that when poor people need healthcare we pay for it...one way or another. On what planet is it OK to spend 5 times as much to provide the same services?

You're going to give me a chance? LMFAO. Don't forget that you need your oxygen mask for altitudes over 10,000. You already have that head in position to stem nose bleeds. And, might I remind you that name calling is the first stage of concession. Hey, it only hurts for awhile.:< ))))

So, millions of uninsured and indigent people use hospital emergency rooms for primary care and yet the hospitals stay in business...I wonder how that happens.

Fine, dumbass it is.

Millions? Ya think? No, that's the number of paying customers with cancelled policies to pay for your indigent people. Get it, yet? The hospitals don't care where the money comes from. Let's take it from those old fcukers. For as long as we can. Socialism. No doubt.

Doesn't matter...still uninsured.

If your girlfriend got her way public schools would have closed long ago. With your attitude, county hospitals can't be too far behind. As for indigents, they're not mine they're ours and something has to be done to contain costs we already pay.

Yup. So the Gov't dictates that we take it from the payers, personally, and give it to the takers. Just a little more intrusion on our choices. Who cares, right? I DO! You keep rolling over.

Sorry. I had to break for lunch. No food stamps to help. Our taxes pay for schools, police, fire protection, etc. Pretty even across the board. Bigger the home, larger the taxes. That's a given. So WTF are you talking about, Mr. Deflector? This is something totally different. Your ilk are telling people that their insurance coverage is cancelled for a myriad of reasons. Have you seen the "extras" that disqualify a policy that doesn't meet the Obama criteria? Who the fcuk wants them anyway? I never even heard of them. This is a Gov't takeover of the most important choice we have. Not only are YOU the dumass but YOU have that pointy head up your asz.

Schools, police, fire, HOSPITALS...

The chef believes that it's unfair for a senior who's obviously beyond fertility to pay for maternity coverage she'll never use. It does seem ridiculous but by that logic, I'd have opted out of supporting public schools the moment my kids graduated. Do they give you that option in Connecticut...to opt out? I ask because somebody took that choice away from Floridians a long time ago.

You're right, this is pretty close to the exact opposite of the law Americans deserve but it is the result of our process so we're stuck with it. I'm writing a letter to my congressman and you should too. They should know we know they've wasted the last three years.
