You're absolutely right. A big reason for exploding health care costs. If they had to pay out of pocket for doctor visits there wouldn't be a lot of this waste. The real fix is known however it won't allow control. That is the reason.

Tropical Storm ObamaCare on Path to Category 5 Hurricane
Obamacare has been likened to a “disaster,” a “trainwreck” and other implacable forces of nature or accident that gouge out the health, wealth and well-being of a community.
The numbers of people affected just last week by the looming implementation of Obamacare easily numbers in the tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands.
Thousands of part-time employees at the boutique grocery chainTrader Joe’s, for example, were told last week that they’d be losing benefits in favor of a $500 stipend for exchange-based healthcare.
Some of those employees will pay more now for health insurance, some will pay a bit less.
But however those employees make out, the rest of us will pay more as Obamacare costs start to mount.
“Trader Joe's is essentially SHIFTING THE COSTS it used to pay for health insurance onto the federal government,” admits the Washington Post, one of Obamacare’s top proponents.
Trader Joe’s joins IBM, UPS, and the City of Chicago as the most high profile institutions that have shifted the cost of employee benefits to Uncle Same Ole, Same Ole.
It's going to continue to be a mess and an impending disaster until Republicans finally have a chance at bat again to repeal the darn thing.

After all the damage the Democrats did with the bad mortgage crisis and now Obamacare and an incompetent leader with all the baggage of his party dragging us all down, Republicans haven't even been able to prove they actually DO have solutions.

We'd already been in the process of healing with a Republican Mitt Romney and a Republican Congress passing mandatory reforms and giving people back their lives and hope for the future.

But liberals keep voting for the "kick the can down the road so we don't have to make any important decisions that might cost us a few votes" liberal democrats.

Until enough of them have also had enough, we're stuck. If in 2014 and 2016, they haven't figured it out by then, we're not only stuck - we're sunk.

so we do you nutjobs get so riled up every time there's a mass shooting? 2nd amendment reflex? so...let's not talk about guns. just everything else.

nope. i want to talk about guns. and so do a lot of other people.

Just five months ago, a mile and a half away at the U.S. Capitol, the U.S. Senate defeated a compromise proposal to expand background checks on gun purchases, despite vast public support for the proposal.

The gun control proposals had followed the horrific massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in December, where a deranged gunman killed 20 children and six educators before taking his own life. The Senate proposal would have required background checks for sales at gun shows and the Internet, closing glaring loopholes in current law.

Is there a place in America that hasn't been touched by a mass shooting? Has it become part of life in this country? About 3,000 people, military and civilian, work in the building where the shooting took place. We ask for senators who voted against the gun control bill to go down there tomorrow and look them in the eye.

Let’s Not Wait to Talk About Gun Control

Thirteen people are dead at the Washington Navy Yard. It’s not too soon to talk about gun control again.

I write on the day of the killing. Gun enthusiasts say it is inappropriate to talk about gun violence at the time it occurs. Better to wait … and wait … and wait … until time has passed, and the weeping next of kin have vanished from TV, and it’s safe to return to business as usual. The idea of the gun enthusiasts is that the way to show respect for the victims of gun violence is to do everything possible to multiply their number.

Yet the gun enthusiasts do have one point on their side: for all the horror of these massacres, they are only a small part of the story of gun violence in America. Most casualties of gun violence will not die at the hands of a mentally disturbed killer seeking random victims. Most gun casualties occur in the course of quarrels and accidents between people who would be described as “law-abiding, responsible gun owners” up until the moment that they lost their temper or left a weapon where a four-year-old could find it and kill himself or his sister.

That's the problem with these right whiners. Their news source gets debunked & they still keep believing them.

So Carol why do't you research the voting registration laws in Virginia & Texas & see if you need to declare a party when you register to vote instead of just calling everyone a liar.

Navy Yard massacre should move Americans to more than sorrow

Life does go on, through Columbine in 1999, through Virginia Tech in 2007, through Sandy Hook in 2012. Each atrocity provides a jolt to the nation and then recedes with little effect, until the next unimaginable event occurs, except each time a little more imaginable. Everything was supposed to change after a man with a semiautomatic weapon mowed down 20 elementary school children in their classrooms last December. But for the politicians, nothing changed. Now, another massacre, another roster of funerals. Again, again, again.

You think saying is the same as doing, right? So, what "international control" will take charge of this operation? Putin is going to run Vallerie Jarrett in circles. He wants Vallerie Jarrett to start a war. Just wait until the first anti-ship missile hits a US ship, and some morgue is filled up with the bodies. That will probably be the last straw for Americans.

You seem to forget the United States has absolutely zero credibility in the world, and we are alone. The Obama administration's only friend is the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda, and they are getting run out of the other countries.

The only option this incompetent administration has given us is to start a war.
Way to go, Mr Nobel Peace Prize idiot fraud President.

Navy Yard Shooting Revives Ghosts for Newtown Families

Gun control advocates making their last-minute preparations for a lobbying trip to Capitol Hill were shaken by the mass shooting that claimed the lives of 12 people at the Navy Yard, but they say they are determined to continue their push for stricter legislation.

Nine months after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre left 26 dead, including 20 children, many of those grieving families, as well as families and victims of other gun related tragedies planned to return to Washington to try to jumpstart an issue that seems to have lost some of the urgency it had.

"It all comes flooding back to you," said Darren Wagner, the father of two children who survived the Newtown, Conn., shooting. "It makes me angry as a dad, as a police officer, as a first responder."

Wagner, a former police officer, is one of more than 90 advocates with Newtown Action Alliance who are scheduled to arrive in Washington today in a pre-planned trip to jump start conversations in Congress on background check legislation.

They have more than 40 meetings planned with Congressional offices this week, and plan to hold a press conference with Newtown families on Wednesday. A rally with gun control group Mayors Against Illegal Guns is planned for Thursday.

There is no mass shooting devastating enough, disgusting enough or shocking enough that the U.S. Congress would be moved to enact reasonable gun legislation like the measures proposed in April by President Obama after 20 first-graders were mowed down last year in Newtown, Conn.[...]

And, as it turns out, when you are the NRA or in its pocket, there is never a "right time" to talk about rational gun measures.

So here we are again, another mass shooting in the news, another moment when gun control advocates must once again lean into the fray and not allow themselves be intimidated by people who would rather offer a prayer for the dead than do anything to prevent more killing.
