That's why the local ERs are so overwhelmed,this lady goes to the ER for a headache,take some Ibuprofen for a headache,you don't go to the ER you fool.Alot of people on Medicaid will visit the ER or take their children there for things that can be taken care of at home.

In reference to the first comment..... you hillbillies think rabbit stew cures everything. I guess you're a doctor nowadays >>>> hillbilly style, lmmfaoooooooo. You are probably one of those idiot that is complaining about OBAMACARE

Do you idiots not realize that is one of the big reasons for forcing those to purchase healthcare.... so hospital bills can get paid.... I tell you man, you redneck hillbillies is beyond me.

That was Obama's response to the elderly, take an aspirine and die quicker. Once you get to 70, you are put out to pasture under Obamacare since at 70 you are not considered a producer. HIS WORDS NOT MINE!

Now now just hold on there a minute sonny....
Do you understand the Affordable Healthcare Act? did you even know that is what it is called? Since you are so up on today's politics how about schooling us on the contents of the Affordable HEalthcare Act (bet you didn't even know that is what it is actually called)
Explain to me how making everyone get insurance will be bad for the insurance companies, and kill jobs.
Then if you like explain to me about the "death panels" right wing goombas are tauting. Do you think the current system doesn't have it's own death panels?
So school me with some facts. Not some crap you repeated off of FOX news or the Fatboy radio show.

Oh I almost forgot...your racist tone, and remarks are not the remarks of a true American Patriot.
By the way, your daughters all prefer black men.

Personally, I feel like if you need medical attention to do your job....the govt should pay for it.
Why?
Because they get 25+% of every penny you will earn after you have been fixed up and are ready to work.
Why would the government not invest in its own people?????
I don't have a problem with people who have to be on welfare or some other assistance either.
Why???
Because those people will spend that money right here in the good ole USA.
I know the current thinking is welfare recipients don't feed their kids and just spend the money on new cars and crack. That may be true for some...but not all
And, if those people spend their money the govt gives them, they are creating commerce. And every time they spend that free money it is taxed. So goods and services are purchased and they are TAXED. They are contributing to the economy.

The Affordabe healthcare act is good as far as I can tell. I got a small business and I do not have insurance. Best price I can get for the wife and me is over $500 a month. when I am forced to get healthcare by the individual mandate thing, hopefully I can get better insurance at a better rice than that.
If not....then I'll be mad about it.

If he said that then why would he push for so many uninsured to be insured so they can get the medical treatment they need, come on now you suppose to think about such things.

good grief man
