You are contradicting yourself. You said that the price of the drug should be the same whether you have insurance or not; I agree.
Why is it that a prescription with insurance can be $40 and $400 without? Makes no sense, the drug is the drug.
assuming that the $40 charge is the total cost, and not just the copay after insurance pays $360...Galt agrees...

Sounds eerily similar to your tall tales last election cycle about a "Rmoney Landslide".

There was a landslide, alright. It swept Rmoney out of politics. LOL

Now his former supporters call him a RINO, as only sore losers can do.

<quoted text> Estimated to be a payroll tax of 15% to 20%. This is above the payroll deductions already in place. No thanks.
The PA plan would be paid by a flat 3% individual income tax & an employer 10% payroll tax.

"Annual premiums for employer-sponsored family health coverage reached $16,351 this year, up 4 percent from last year, with workers on average paying $4,565 towards the cost of their coverage, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation/Health Research & Educational Trust (HRET) 2013 Employer Health Benefits Survey."

Just looking at premiums, the break even point for companies would be $120,000K ave. pay per employee.

Employee break even would be $150K. Not counting the savings from no co-pay/No deducible.

It would go broke within a couple of years or the tax would need to be dramatically increased. No thanks!

Not to mention when people think something is free they consume much more. Personally I think handing the government 50% of every paycheck is insane. You throw in all the other taxes you will get to keep/spend/invest maybe 15%. Who would want to work for that?

Obama had cause the works to hate the US. The incompetent president!
What ever happened to "Bush caused the world to hate us"?
The world love leadership as shown by the Republican president!
But hate the incompetence shown by the teleprompter women and children drone killer president - Obama. The president without a birth certificate nor collage transcripts.
If Israel is mad at the U.S., then my hat's off to President Obama. Its about time we recognize Israel for what it is. A outlaw, terrorist nation that has stolen land from its neighbors through military aggression. Israel is no friend of the U.S., as they have repeatiedly stabbed us in the back, sold top secret material about our nuclear sub fleet and operations to the Russians in the middle of the cold war, attacked unarmed U.S. Naval vessels and spied on us both military and industrial. They've sold military industrial secrets to the Chinese.

If Assad is mad at us because we arranged to have his WMD stockpile and manufacturing capabilities destroyed so be it.

AND NOT A SINGLE U.S. SERVICEMAN WAS KILLED OR A U.S. DOLLAR SPENT.

Haven't seen anything about Turkey's displeasure, they are on line to buy some F-35's. So they can't be that mad.

Egypt??? Why?

Afghanistan, Really??? without us Karzai is gone with a few months, so I very much doubt he's got any beefs.

BTW I see you're ESL qualified

You have to hand it to the democrats. Somehow they've managed to create a Teflon President, similar to John Gotti, the Teflon Don who also had scores of supporters even though they new he was a dangerous, powerful figure.
Because the liberal media think they're DuPont and make sure he's non-stick.

Whereas you fools think that whining about Obama and Obamacare will actually change anything!!

You stupidly shut down the Gov't, which will cost your side the 2014 elections.

Nitwits like you play right into Obama's hands.

It's the stupidity of the Teabags that has turned Obama into a Teflon President.

Because nobody but your fellow idiots believe any of your stupidity. Your blind racist hatred and lies have made him more popular, not less. DUH

Keep up the good work, loser.

Truth is, too many of you made the mistake that everybody was a racist like y'all are!!

America saw right thru your hatred and wars on women, minorities, the poor, etc.

You and your ideas were rejected by the American People. And it bothers the hell out of you, even if you can't admit it.

You are part of the dustbin of history.
