As a Democrat, I'm willing to contribute to Rand Paul's campaign. Nothing would be more fun, or more deadly for Republicans, than to run this idiotic nincompoop from the moon.

Rand Paul's Funny Obamacare Codes Have Been in Development Since 1994

At a Republican Party event in Iowa earlier this month, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky did a bit about the scale of Obamacare's diagnostic coding. It killed. The only problem was that Paul's critique of the new codes are a critique of codes that aren't new and aren't Obamacare. A lot of them aren't even American.

Paul delivered the bit as a small part of a long speech, but — given the solid punchlines — the routine has at last been picked up by the conservative media. An article at Glenn Beck's The Blaze walks through the jokes, dubbing the speech "hilarious — yet revealing."

I'm a physician, and when you come in to see me, I put down a little diagnostic code and there was 18,000 of these. But under Obamacare, they're going to keep you healthier, because now there's going to be 140,000 codes.
Makes sense

Let's see. No damage from the Reagan library cause there is noting in it worth any value. On the other hand, I bet he will plan on shipping Silicon valley to China. Why import millions of illegals when you can just ship the work elsewhere?

If only some practical Reagan wisdom would permeate Paul’s thick skull, his visit might serve some useful purpose and not be just a photo op at the library of a GOP hero (who could not even get nominated by today’s GOP, thanks to its current knuckle-dragging masters).

Given the mentality of the GOP, it could conceivably nominate Paul, but there’s no way he could win an election regardless of all the gerrymandering and voter registration fraud it could possibly muster.

A pilgrimage to monuments to a President who wouldn't be welcome either in the Libertarian Party OR the modern-day GOPee.

Funny stuff...

A quick shot of cortisone brought Holly Burgess relief from a painful flare-up of plantar fasciitis, or "policeman's heel," a common ailment that makes it difficult to walk.

While the treatment was effective, the 65-year-old retired teacher left the South Pointe Hospital medical offices Janusary 19 with a new medical issue, one she wouldn't discover for more than a month.

It was the bill:$1,481 for what Burgess describes as two minutes with a doctor and a shot that was so easy to give that she didn't even have to move to a full-fledged exam room.

Even after a discount negotiated by her insurance company, Burgess was left owing $533 because the treatment was coded as "hospital outpatient ambulatory surgery," a designation that drove the charges up and shifted a large part of the cost to her.

Interesting.

The cort shot,back in a week,next a ct scan, next a referral to an alledged wrist surgeon, next a 65 mile drive to the big city, a 2.5 hr wait to see an a--pimple and acne billing office manager grandios w/ brochure Doc. diagnosis was three choices, fancy splint,cort shots, or surgery, just like the plecebo commercials where you TELL your doctor all your med history. NO RELIEF! Made an appointment w/ a chiropacter, he fixed the sob after determining that it was a pulled tendon and didn't charge to boot. The problem is there are no quack and ins co watchdogs here in U S of Argentina. Stil waiting on ins co investigation for the surgery bill.Till I hear from them the medical can kicking bleeder community can go p--s up a rope.
