"I think we ought to reform healthcare so it's personal, it's portable, it's affordable. We ought to empower patients rather than government bureaucrats getting between you and your doctor."

Instead, teabaggers would rather maintain corporate insurance bureaucrats getting between you and your doctor.

October 14, 2009

Ian Pearl has fought for his life every day of his 37 years. Confined to a wheelchair and hooked to a breathing tube, the muscular dystrophy victim refuses to give up.

But his insurance company already has.
Legally barred from discriminating against individuals who submit large claims, the New York-based insurer simply canceled lines of coverage altogether in entire states to avoid paying high-cost claims like Mr. Pearl's.

In an e-mail, one Guardian Life Insurance Co. executive called high-cost patients such as Mr. Pearl "dogs" that the company could "get rid of."

A Guardian spokesman said policies such as Mr. Pearl's - which offered unlimited home nursing - had simply become too expensive for new small-business customers to buy, and that even Medicaid and Medicare do not cover 24-hour home nursing.

His parents, Warren and Linda Pearl of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., said their health insurance premiums had risen over the years to $3,700 a month.

The insurer also canceled similar policies in New Jersey and South Carolina, and earlier ceased offering any health plans in Colorado, but did not cancel all of the policies in every state in which they were offered, said John Fried, the Pearls' attorney. The company took the action only against those plans where claims were highest, he said.

In 2006, Guardian began an initiative called Moving Forward, which was "designed to increase Guardian's competitive position by reducing what it paid out in claims," wrote Judge William Pauley, of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, in his summary judgment in Guardian's favor in July.

Guardian spokesman Richard Jones said plans such as Mr. Pearl's had simply become too expensive to market to employers.

"We certainly sympathize with [Mr. Pearl's]'s condition. As a business, though, we have to offer plans that enough customers want," Mr. Jones said.

Yes the "glory" days before the disastrous ACA.

Cruz was right.
Obama is America's first to lie like a rug to your face.
But you can keep him if you want to. Period. lol
Perhaps Obama will be the first president to break the 10% approval rating.
That's about all the fooled democrats have to look forward to.
Poor slobs.
the first?!? are you serious? lets see:

"we have proof of WMDs in Iraq." GWB

"I never had sexual relations with her" WJC

"Read my lips, no new taxes" GHWB

Carter never said anything worth quoting.

You have nothing but a straw man fallacy and a false dichotomy argument... typical (D)Zombie sheople tactics. I bet you have an "abortion is absolutly needed" argument much the same with laura ingalls dying during delivery on little house on the prarie because she was raped by an indian savage with AIDS huh???? I think your obsession with men's balls in your mouth, teabagging you, has clearly had an effect on your ability to remain sane.
You're the one "obsessed" why do you bring homo's into the conversation?

If that's the way you would like to be described, I'm not going to argue.

"men's balls in your mouth"?

Take your sexual fantasies to the gay forum.

We don't want to read your crap here.

Only to a teabagger.

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that (pregnancy from rape) is really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Teabagger comprehension and logic working as well as ever.

Who? In their right mind could come to that conclusion?

A Teabagger, of course.

poor , little, ignorant teabageee.
Apparently teabaggers didn't know what it meant when they started to call themselves teabaggers.

The first big day for this movement was Tax Day, April 15. And organizers had a gimmick.
They asked people to send a tea bag to the Oval Office. One of the exhortations was “Tea Bag the Fools in D.C.” A protester was spotted with a sign saying,“Tea Bag the Liberal Dems Before They Tea Bag You.” So, conservatives started it: started with this terminology. But others ran with it and ran with it.

In emails, protest signs, t-shirts, and online, early Tea Party literature urged protesters to “Tea Bag the White House,” and to “Tea-bag the liberal Dems before they tea-bag you.” The suggestion is that the metaphoric “tea-bags” be shoved in the mouths of the President, Democratic members of Congress, and even ordinary citizens who identify as liberal Democrats.

The idea that they just didn’t know the term’s only (at that time) meaning is belied by the fact that they obviously knew it was negative (and non-consensual), since they didn’t want it done to them, and also because it only had one meaning.

Now as usual.

They WHINE.

"Teabageee"?

Good luck with that.

Poor teabagger.
