You must have a crappy policy. I pay about $3 -$5 for a generic prescription. What do you mean you were one day early? For a refill?
What makes you think dealing with the feds is any better? At least with a private insurer they have a market to compete in and you can vote with your pocketbook. Where are you going to go in a monopoly? You going to write your Congressman in a dispute?
I do have a crappy policy. I looked at other policies. They are essentially the same.

Yes, I was one day early for a refill.

There are no market forces, as they all have their own territory and collude on pricing and benefits. Since we agree it is a crappy policy, why would they still exist if there were market forces?

When the insurance company makes a decision on whether or not to pay, the money comes right out of the pocket of the CEO. He has a personal financial interest not to pay. With the government, it will be a clerk making the decision and it will be based on regulations. The clerk will not make many millions of dollars simply by refusing everyone. It won't be perfect, but certainly better than the nothing I get now. The other places that have universal are much better at a much lower cost.

Yep, Boston, once the Bastion of freedom, now the center of marxism, stupidity and socialism. Pity that.

You have a confused view of how business works. Do you think that a corporate CEO decides on whether or not to cover your claim? Does he get another million in comp for not paying your prescription? Is he sitting on a big bag of money in his corner office?

If you waited until the next day, would you have been mostly covered, less copay? Is this one little incident reason enough to let the government into your personal medical files? Exactly what does the government do that is better than the private sector does?

"The other places that have universal are much better at a much lower cost"

LMAO!!! Like where?

The President is a lame duck. He isn't going to get support from Republicans or conservative Democrats for gun control, or immigration reform. There is no extra money so he cannot buy support like he did his Healthcare debacle.
And even the dems are recognizing its beginning to fall apart before it even gets started. I guess they finally read what was in it.

Whats going on in Boston is more proof that it is imperative that law abiding Americans remained ARMED. Just imagine the lone terrorist on the run came through your door and you had no gun because of these gun control Marxist liberals and obama. No doubt there are many in the Boston area sitting in their home locked and loaded and rightfully so.

Everytime the issue of gun control rears it`s ugly head Americans need to band together to defeat their attemps to make law abiding gun owners victims.

No doubt there are plenty more terrorists around America sitting and waiting to act. These 2 are muslims and obama by executive order allowed 88,000 Afghans to migrate to the U.S. not knowing if they are Taliban or Alqueda or members of another terrorist org.

Our own Gov. malloy and Senators Blumenthal and Murphy are trying to destroy our Constitutional Rights with their lies in defense of their support for gun control. Our State Reps are no better and all who voted against the law abiding gun owners here in CT need to be voted out of office, both democrats and republicans.

We must never forget what these politicians have done to us.

Follow he story, as I have in multiple windows.

Where has any correlation been made from t brothers of Russian descent, here for over 10 years, one a teenager and the other only 9 years old wen entering this country, legally I may add, in any way connected with a Saudi national?

Hell, hour after this incident occurred, all the right wing idiots were screaming Weather Underground and Bill Ayers here on Topix.

BS buddy! You and your ilk were saying first "where is Bill Ayers?" / then you and your ilk were saying "Weather Underground", then you and your ilk were saying "Muslim Brotherhood" - you people should just STFU until the truth comes out.

Said that from the beginning, but you and your heartless ilk can't help yourselves. Anything to pin blame in some way on Obama, you dummies jump on like a bunch of trained monkeys.

Instead of showing empathy for the dead and injured, you idiots automatically turn a tragedy into a political agenda.

And you now know why you morons will not have the White house for a LOOOONG TIME! And you might as well kiss 2014 goodbye - the people don't forget.

Yes, Bill Ayers, once a bomber and killer, always a bomber and killer. Fits the liberal mold.
