At the fifth GOP debate this week, moderator Wolf Blitzer asked Ron Paul, a doctor, whether someone who opts to not buy health insurance and then gets sick should be allowed to die. The crowd responded with startling shouts of "Yeah!" followed by applause, leaving even Rick Perry "taken aback." Paul's answer, while more gentle, was more or less the same. "That's what freedom is all about: taking your own risks. This whole idea that you have to take care of everybody ... " said Paul, who was cut off by clapping from the audience. While you wouldn't know it from his answer, Blizter's hypothetical probably hit close to home for Paul, whose campaign manager Kent Snyder died young of pneumonia — without insurance — in 2008.
He was just 49 years old when he died of complications from the virus on June 26, two weeks after Paul dropped out of the race. Snyder's mother was left with around $400,000 in medical costs. Paul supporters set up a donation fund to help with the debt.
Snyder was credited as "the driving force behind Ron Paul's presidential bid" in the last election, having turned "his one-man operation into a national grass-roots phenomenon that now calls itself 'The Freedom Movement.'"
That same freedom, which Paul referred to in the debate, complicated Snyder's health problems, as a preexisting condition made insurance premiums too expensive, according to Snyder's sister.

so he was getting 'healthcare' and died because of the 400 thousand in bills? really?
I hate doctors they seem to be able to kill quite a few, hopefully all these 7 million will run to get 'healthcare' good thing you didn't sign up the 40,000 O'bama said he would huh? So 400 thousand dollars worth of 'health care' killed this guy? surely you jest?

Medications for the elderly - passed by both parties -$400 billion.
ObamaCare - strictly Democratic vote using back room deals -$2 trillion and counting.
We won't even go into the lies and deception or if it's even going to work or not. According to Harry Reid, it's just the first step toward single-payer. They have to create enough confusion so we will surrender.

By the way Carol those Democrats are being prosecuted by Obama's DOJ. So what's your point?
but, it's OK with you that Obama is a left wing ideologue who (not "that") wants to "force his own beliefs on the rest of the country"......

$400?

Recall the situation in 2003. The Bush administration was already projecting the largest deficit in American history–$475 billion in fiscal year 2004, according to the July 2003 mid-session budget review. But a big election was coming up that Bush and his party were desperately fearful of losing. So they decided to win it by buying the votes of America’s seniors by giving them an expensive new program to pay for their prescription drugs.

Recall, too, that Medicare was already broke in every meaningful sense of the term. According to the 2003 Medicare trustees report, spending for Medicare was projected to rise much more rapidly than the payroll tax as the baby boomers retired. Consequently, the rational thing for Congress to do would have been to find ways of cutting its costs. Instead, Republicans voted to vastly increase them–and the federal deficit–by $395 billion between 2004 and 2013.

However, the Bush administration knew this figure was not accurate because Medicare’s chief actuary, Richard Foster, had concluded, well before passage, that the more likely cost would be $534 billion. Tom Scully, a Republican political appointee at the Department of Health and Human Services, threatened to fire him if he dared to make that information public before the vote.(See this report by the HHS inspector general and this article by Foster.)

It’s important to remember that the congressional budget resolution capped the projected cost of the drug benefit at $400 billion over 10 years. If there had been an official estimate from Medicare’s chief actuary putting the cost at well more than that, then the legislation could have been killed by a single member in either the House or Senate by raising a point of order. Then-Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, R-Miss., later said he regretted not doing so.

Proud of President George Bush
leading the way to Obamacare.

in fact Romney did his part in Mass.

It is the largest expansion of Medicare since the program was created in 1965, though most of its provisions won't take effect for several years.

The drug benefit, for example, does not take effect until 2006. Before that, seniors will be able to purchase a discount card that could provide a 10 to 25 percent off prescription drugs.

"Our nation has made a promise, a solemn promise, to America's seniors," Bush said.

"We have pledged to help our citizens

find affordable medical care in the later years of life."

"These reforms are the act of a vibrant

and compassionate government," Bush said.

"EPA Human Study Subjects"
forgot to warn them about cancer risks...
'The EPA obtained informed consent from the 81 human study subjects before exposing them to pollutants. While the consent forms met the requirements of 40 CFR Part 26, we found that exposure risks were not always consistently represented. Further, the EPA did not include information on long-term cancer risks in its diesel exhaust studies’ consent forms. An EPA manager considered these long-term risks minimal for short-term study exposures. We believe presenting consistent information about risks further ensures that study subjects can make the most informed choice about participating in a study."

"Bless You..."
Just a minute ago you were hating on religion?
And just what does wishing someone to be blessed have to do with religion? Now if you ask me about your God I would say that he more than likely is a phagg like a lot of Righties are. only weak, simple minded people believe because that's what they have been told and by giving up the ability for self thinking. In other words programmed minions. That's how Republicans orginated...It's also a natural thing to believe that there is a supreme being and a hear after. Aint going to happen. Christopher Hitchins [a man that I admired ] who passed away a couple years ago, who was an atheist was asked on one of his TV shows if he was afraid of dying being an atheist and all..His response was ["No not really the earth was here a couple billion years before I was born and that didn't inconvenience me at all".

The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that wealthy donors shouldn’t be limited in how many candidates they can contribute to during an election, though the justices did leave in place the maximum donation that can be made to a single candidate.
The ruling is certain to reignite a debate over the role of money in politics and it enraged Democrats, who argue that conservatives are dismantling the campaign finance system one ruling at a time.
But Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., in the controlling opinion in the 5-4 ruling, said that while the government has an interest in preventing corruption of federal officeholders, individuals have political rights that include being able to give to as many candidates as they want, in order to show support.
“Money in politics may at times seem repugnant to some, but so too does much of what the First Amendment vigorously protects,” the chief justice wrote.“If the First Amendment protects flag burning, funeral protests, and Nazi parades — despite the profound offense such spectacles cause — it surely protects political campaign speech despite popular opposition.”
You should see Chuck Todd on Twitter. His predictions of impending doom is only overshadowed by Brian Williams weather forecast warning of an imminent flood.
