I've always seen the Gipper as an amiable dunce B-actor who let a pack of right-wing ideologues run his Presidency while he read his uninspiring speeches from index cards. Foreign countries thought we were nuts for allowing such an act to be our leader. We were nuts for electing him twice even after he started to slip into Alzheimer's dementia. The Tea Baggers are a dim memorial to this man.

I'll never forget the Republicans/Reagans hard work on behalf handicapped Americans--------the shock of seeing them roam the streets of Springfield Missouri after Reagan cut off aid to them and pushed them into the streets was the most eye opening event I have ever wittnessed personally!

May he and his entire political party burn in hell!

"The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA)[1] is a U.S. Act of Congress passed in 1986 as part of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). It requires hospitals to provide care to anyone needing emergency healthcare treatment regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay. There are no reimbursement provisions. Participating hospitals may only transfer or discharge patients needing emergency treatment under their own informed consent, after stabilization, or when their condition requires transfer to a hospital better equipped to administer the treatment.[2]
EMTALA applies to "participating hospitals." The statute defines "participating hospitals" as those that accept payment from the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) under the Medicare program.[3] However, in practical terms, EMTALA applies to virtually all hospitals in the U.S., with the exception of the Shriners Hospitals for Children, Indian Health Service hospitals, and Veterans Affairs hospitals.[citation needed] The combined payments of Medicare and Medicaid,$602 billion in 2004,[4] or roughly 44% of all medical expenditures in the U.S., make not participating in EMTALA impractical for nearly all hospitals. EMTALA's provisions apply to all patients, and not just to Medicare patients.[5][6]
The cost of emergency care required by EMTALA is not directly covered by the federal government. Because of this, the law has been criticized by some as an unfunded mandate.[7]"

Reagan was smart enough to make sure all people had health care!
