Well, let me just say it again.
Obama's been "hobbled with the most obstructionist House in the history of the country" because Republicans refuse to help him destroy the economy faster and Obama refuses to negotiate policies based on his radical and self-gratifying political whims.
So I say to Republicans: Stand firm and don't budge an inch.
You can repeat your delusional rantings all you want Carol but that doesn't make them any less delusional.

Hospital Forced to Deny Treatment for Kids With Severe Medical Conditions Sues Obamacare
Thanks to Obamacare, the quality of many Americans’ current healthcare is gradually declining. A story that made national news described how children “are being denied specialty treatment by insurance providers on the Washington Health Benefits Network.”
Administrators at Seattle Children’s Hospital said in January they predicted this would happen, and it’s even worse than they expected. Patients being denied specialty treatment at the hospital by insurance providers on the Washington health benefits exchange. Children’s filed request on behalf of 125 of their sickchild3patients. Of those, they say they got only 20 responses, eight of which were denials.
Keep swilling the Obama ade.
There is nothing in the ACA that would have caused this.

Either the Hospital refuse the terms offered by insurers or insurers chose not to include those hospitals in their networks.

If these children were covered before, then insurers had a pathway to continue to offer these plans but decoded not to.

Blaming the ACA is not justified. Either purchasers neglected yo look at provider networks, Providers opted not to be included in these plans, or insurers restricted their networks. None was dictated by the ACA.

besides, premium increases cannot be directly compared because coverage is much less, with higher deductibles and copays, as a result of ObamaKKKare.....
unless you think $100 worth of "free" birth control pills is a fair trade for a $2000 increase in deductible....
Galt shows his ignorance once again about health insurance.

Probably because his was always provided by his employer which was likely government.

BS
Food stamps are a tool used by democrats to increase government dependency.
You really are quite the shill.
The USDA has conducted a massive campaign to increase the number of food stamp recipients, even hiring recruiters who must fulfill enrollment quotas. The USDA in its “Community Partner Outreach Toolkit” webpage gives ideas of how to spread awareness and increase enrollment. Ideas have been implemented such as SNAP-based bingo games for the elderly, food-stamp parties, and fliers that that read,”Be a patriot. Bring your food stamp money home.”
But it doesn’t stop here; the U.S. and Mexico began a partnership in 2004 to “provide information on eligibility criteria for Food and Nutrition Service programs,” and that includes disseminating a Spanish language flyer that tells undocumented immigrants,“You need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit [food stamps] for your children.”
The U.S. also supplies 1/3 of the Puerto Rican population with food stamps, costing U.S. taxpayers roughly $2 billion annually. Clearly, food stamp programs have become more and more about numbers, instead of need.
Food stamps has always been about families providing food.

If this is some evil Democrat plan, why did food stamps role increase under Bush by nearly the same number as under Obama?

Kind of shows just how stupid your post is.

If he earned another $1,300 a year, the government would pay the full cost. Instead, coverage would cost about what he earns.

..where are the 43 million?....

"During the misinformation campaign that launched Obamacare we were told that 46 million Americans were in desperate need of health insurance....

The Obamacare Program has been accessible for nearly 5 months now, and a paltry and questionable 3 million people have enrolled, if not paid."

....they have a face....

"Almost 39 percent of the uninsured are in five states -- Florida, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California, all of which are entry points for immigrants. About 21 percent -- 9.7 million -- of the uninsured are not citizens. Up to 14 million are eligible for existing government programs -- Medicare, Medicaid, SCHIP, veterans' benefits, etc.-- but have not enrolled. And 9.1 million have household incomes of at least $75,000 and could purchase insurance. Those last two cohorts are more than half of the 45.7 million."

Hi there dummy!
"Fact: They work just as effectively in cooling and can be engineered to require no additional backup heat source if desired,---> although some customers decide that it is more cost effective to have a small backup system <--- for just the coldest days if it means their loop can be smaller."
http://energyblog.nationalgeographic.com/2013...
So how may heat exchangers have you installed moron?
So, they may need help if the purchaser DECIDES to install a too small loop system system.
What kind of moron would do that??
My loops are two holes at 375 foot deep or 750 feet.
Say $12 a foot ( I paid $8) the total cost is about $9k.
So some moron decides that he only wants 600 feet & buys another HVAC system to save $1800 or to save $7.50 a month over 20 years??
Maybe if they were as stupid as you.
I have never installed an motor in my pick up truck, it doesn't mean I don't know how they work. I know lots of people that have installed a new battery in their vehicle that have no clue how they work - you know, like you with your heat pumps & not knowing why a air to air heat pump performs differently that geothermal ground loops.
Geothermal HVAC do not require an alternative HVAV system to help it perform properly. Something you said was not the case in colder climates.

The Corbett administration's decision not to expand Medicaid under the new federal health-care law will result in an additional 400-1,500 deaths in Pennsylvania a year, nearly 13,000 additional families with catastrophic medical expenses and tens of thousands of cases of untreated depression, diabetes and missed screening tests, according to a study published Thursday.

Gathered by researchers from Harvard University and the City University of New York, the estimates show that in the states that opted out of expanding Medicaid, 7,000-17,000 additional deaths will occur among people who would have been covered had expansion been supported.

"We predict that many low-income women will forego recommended breast and cervical cancer screening; diabetics will forego medications and all low-income adults will face a greater likelihood of depression, catastrophic medical expenses and death," researchers wrote in the study, which was released on the website of the journal Health Affairs.

"We calculated the number and characteristics of people who will remain uninsured as a result of their state's opting out of the Medicaid expansion, and applied these figures to the known effects of insurance expansion from prior studies," lead author Samuel Dickman said. "The results were sobering. Political decisions have consequences, some of them lethal."
