We are not even in the full effect of that horrendous ObamaCare and we are already fighting insurance.
Insurance would approve thousands of dollars for back surgery, but not office visits to have chiropractic treatment to avoid the surgery.
The doctors and citizens already have no say, I cannot wait until the government decides what's best for me. Crazy politicians.

I would bet money that "Truth" (who's full of lies) and "Moo goo gi pan" have BOTH sucked off the system more than most Americans.

The bigger the government leech they are...

the more likely they were on "military welfare," recipients of the G.I. bill, have govt backed mortgages, drain elderly family member's savings to qualify them for Medicaid (and preserve their grandma's $50K house), they'll be on Medicaid and Medicare at some point in the future (JUST LIKE AYN RAND), they think they should get tax breaks for everything they do anyway, and they'll be the first to complain when the govt chips away at one of their MANY government benefits.

Oh and by the way... "Obamacare" is really ROMNEYCARE.

REPUBLICAN IRONY- The same people who scream and cry about tax dollars are the same people who want to spend TRILLIONS keeping vegetables on life support.

...and probably the same people who "Spend down assets" of family members in order to qualify family members for Medicaid.
