Why do you think the ultra rich people, and famous celebrities come to America for health care? We are the best. They don't run to Europe, they come here/ You brainless wonders have bought into another Liberal lie. But that is expected since any of you over the age of 12 have drank, and smoked away your brain cells.

<quoted text>More funny shit regarding Ryan - here's Ryan asking for federal money he supposedly fought against - you remember the stimulus bill he was vehemently against, and stated so also as his VP run was going? Well, here's "Lyin Ryan" getting his funding from this bill;

"Vice President Biden hit Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) in their debate Thursday for requesting money from the 2009 economic stimulus bill he has criticized.

Biden brought up two letters that he said the GOP vice presidential nominee wrote to him that requested funds from the stimulus for companies in Wisconsin.

"I am not allowed to show letters, but go on our website. He sent me two letters saying 'by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies in Wisconsin?' " Biden said. "I love that,'this is such a bad program' and he writes me a letter, writes the Department of Energy a letter saying we want money because it will create growth and jobs, in his words."
In 2009, Ryan wrote to Energy Secretary Steven Chu and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis asking for money to cover costs on two energy conservation projects in Wisconsin."

While Congressman Ryan attacked the Recovery Act tonight, he apparently forgot to check his own record. As Congressman, he understood that the Recovery Act was helping to create jobs and sent letters to federal agencies asking for Recovery Act dollars to help create jobs in his district.

ROMNEY CALLED FOR CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT TO “MOVE QUICKLY” ON THEIR STIMULUS PLAN

JANUARY 2009: Romney Said Obama Should “Move Quickly” On The Proposed $750 Billion Stimulus Package Because We Are In “Unusual Times” And “A Stimulus Program Is Needed.”

Here is someone who told the truth and got fired over OBAMACARE. Of course it is NOT THE right ones that should have gotten fired. It should have been the LIARS and CLOWNS that put this piece of BS together.

The District of Columbia's insurance commissioner was given his walking papers on Friday, one day after he challenged President Barack Obama's fix of the troubled rollout of his signature healthcare law, The Washington Post reports.

Obama held a Thursday press conference, saying he would allow insurance companies to continue offering people policies they wanted to keep, though they had previously been dubbed substandard because they didn't offer all the benefits required under the new law."

"The action today undercuts the purpose of the exchanges, including the Districts DC Health Link, by creating exceptions that make it more difficult for them to operate," D.C. insurance commissioner William P. White said in a statement on the department's website afterward.

The next day, White was called into a meeting with the top deputies of Democratic D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray and was told the mayor "wants to go in a different direction."

White told The Post that he was never told his statement was the reason for his firing, but he suspected the timing was not coincidental.

While Obama's order did not require insurance companies to re-offer policies they have cancelled, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners noted that it "threatens to undermine the new market, and may lead to higher premiums and market disruptions in 2014 and beyond."

White wrote that he concurred with that opinion.

Insurance officials have argued that changing the rules could cause rate hikes in 2015 because it would create separate pools of healthy and sick people the very thing the Affordable Care Act was supposed to avoid.

White told The Post his comments were not intended to say he was either for or against Obama's ruling.

"I didnt know enough to fully support it," he said. "I want to be clear, and I think it is, I was not speaking for Mayor Gray."

There is no line. You can have the same healthcare the rich have. We have had Cadillac care all our lives, same as the rich, but they pay more, because they can. Why do you think people are so against the POS Obamcare? Because you will pay just as much, but you will not have the quality care you had before.

I have pookie, only freeloaders want other's money to pay for what they don't have. Income redistribution is the favorite commie ploy to drag the lay about's in with their signs and protest and they will give you free phones, insurance and no taxes to boot. Lenin did much the same as did Hitler. All Tyrants use the same blueprints.

They pay more because they can ...not because they get more? I suppose they got rich by taking deals like that.

It's not just the rich and famous, Canada spends one billion dollars a year to have their citizens treated in US healthcare facilities. Our hospitals here up north have quite a few Canadian patients. With the shortage of healthcare workers soon to come and those who will lose their jobs like the 3,000 workers at the Cleveland Clinic thanks to Commie Care, soon we won't be able to treat anybody else but our citizens.

Couldn't find it? Because you never looked you idiot;
"Congress recently passed a bill to undo furloughs at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) caused by sequestration, but it left cuts to many other programs intact, including Meals on Wheels. The program brings hot meals to homebound seniors and adults with disabilities, thus providing them with nutrition and helping many of them live independently."
http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2013/05/01/1...
"But few expect a pardon for Meals on Wheels programs, which provide food and human contact for people over 60 who are physically housebound, socially isolated or very low income -- and in many cases, all three.
"They don't have high-priced lobbyists," said Alan Winstead, the executive director of Meals on Wheels of Wake County in Raleigh, N.C.
As it is, Meals on Wheels is estimated to serve just a third or so of the 25 million people over 60 who are poor or near poor.
Federal funding for Meals on Wheels and related nutrition services accounted for 0.02% of the U.S. budget last year. This year, the programs will have to do with roughly $38.7 million less because of the so-called sequester, which requires uniform cuts across programs regardless of cost-effectiveness.
http://money.cnn.com/2013/05/06/news/economy/...
Two idiots couldn't find the obvious?
You both deserve each other.
Thanks for the info. Looking into it further, it seems these "cuts" are part of the sequester. You know, the sequester that the White House put into play? BTW, how did the Democrat led Senate vote on it?

We are not rich. But we have had excellent health care all of our lives. It is a matter of priority. Instead of buying booze, drugs, and cigarettes you buy better Healthcare package. No one is stupid enough to buy it when they are young, and healthy. I suppose if you are young, and black, and live in the inner city you need healthcare for bullet wounds, but civilized people can afford to take care of the minor health problems with cash on hand. This whole thing is a Tsarist approach to redistribution of wealth. Ain't gonna happen. It is every man for himself. Americans won't be forced to buy something they don't want or need, just so some dead beat can get free bandaids.

NP regarding the info.

All parties were in unison regarding implementation of the sequestration in an effort to force each other to come to a consensus - the white House may have approved of it, but not before the Congress voted in favor of it / so you can't point to one side specifically and state it's their fault.
