Single payer would be far more cost effective. Private insurance charges 20% to administer health care. Medicare does it for less than 10%. You just love making insurance companies rich don't you.
Pay for your own pookie, that's more cost effective for other Americans.......

Middle class income has been falling ever since we adopted Raygun's voodoo economics. Trickle down economics was a Republican idea. You jackasses seem to like when the rich piss on your head and tell you its raining.

"Pookie"? WTF are you one of those guys who loves to be slapped around?
Save the pet names for your boyfriend.

As for not paying for my health insurance...I guess your too stupid to notice I'm in Thailand. I can't get Obamacare nor could I get single payer. The only services I get from the U.S. gov is new pages in my passport and I pay for that service. Luckily I live in a country where high quality health care is quite affordable.

Single payer would help American businesses compete in the world market by taking that burden off of them. It would help the American workers by making them more mobile. They would be able to change jobs or start their own businesses without fear of losing their health insurance. Beyond that it is just the right thing to do. Allowing insurance companies to profit from peoples healthcare is amoral.

Since you are claiming to be a liberal hiding in Thailand, I guess you think you should talk out your ass about what is good for those of us living under the tyranny of King Obama and his Czars of the round table.

Harry Reid crafts proposal to raise debt limit.

Since the house leadership was usurped by the greasy canadian, which sets precedent, reid must now play the grown-up and do boner's job for him, as well.

...and the Bimbo changes the subject once again.

The National Guard of Utah ordered it. I guess that's what they do for entertainment there. What its it about the military that makes you hate them so much?

Hmm, I guess Jesus was a liberal. Concern for the poor is something that comes from your heart. You and your ilk can't understand because you have none.

Reaganomics did suck and that neocon weasel, Paul Ryan, is a big disciple of that philosophy, as are the rest of those neocon idiots. Having said that, the Democrats still suck worse economically.

I'm a conservative and I give to plenty of organizations that help the poor or the environment. I just want to be able to choose where I contribute. I certainly don't trust either party to give my money to any worthy cause when ALL they care about is how many more votes they can get by being generous with other peoples money. Private charity is great but government charity is nothing more than political corruption.

Jesus was a conservative who gave away his own treasure. He didn't confiscate other people's to give to the lazy. He wanted people to work hard and help each other, not have the Romans tax and spend Judea into bankruptcy.

Don't even start on homosexuality and infidelity, two major democrat platforms.

Try actually reading the bible.

It slipped my mind. I forgot that the Illuminati were delivering the Dems payoff to the Supreme Court members that the Repubs nominated.
