Republicans want to keep the current failed health care where for profit insurance executives control a persons health care not a doctor. Republicans receive millions in contributions from the health care industry that bribe them.
Rep. Bobby Rush has called for a congressional hearing into allegations that the University of Chicago Medical Center refused treatment to low-income, uninsured patients.

The issue has been a widespread problem in hospitals throughout the country, Rush said in the May 25 letter to Rep. Ed Towns (D-N.Y.), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Rush said "the pervasive impact of patient dumping are felt especially in more recent times, when so many Americans suffer under extreme economic hardship and diminishing access to health care."

At issue is the hospital's Urban Health Initiative, which steers patients who lack private insurance -- primarily poor blacks -- to other facilities.

The move puts Rush at odds with several people in President Obama's inner circle. First lady Michelle Obama, as an executive at the U. of C. Hospitals, helped create the program. White House adviser Valerie Jarrett signed off on the program when she was the hospital board's chairwoman. White House senior adviser David Axelrod was hired to promote the program. And Obama's buddy Dr. Eric Whitaker currently runs the program.

I would love to "lose" that expensive only-in-America freedom!

constitution? he selectively enforces only those laws that he likes. he skips congress on appointments and ignores them on other issues. he knows that the media and hollywood have his back and that his opponents have no backbone. the constitution is outdated and a pain in the neck to him.

Of course it is, if we DECIDE it is. And we should show some courage, step up, and MAKE that decision.

To do otherwise is inhuman. Which is why the Right opposes a health-care right, of course.

Scalia should have resigned after his cowardly, outrageous partisan screed against Obama at the time three of four provisions of the Arizona anti-immigrant law were struck down. His attack on Obama was shameless, a clear display of his inability to judge anything fairly.

And if he should go, obviously so should his houseboy Clarence.

I share your disdain of Thomas and Scalia, but Kagan is no prize either. I am sure Obama could have done much better in nominating a Supreme Court justice.

Roberts: Health care is not a right

Read between the lines people...he is going to come through for us on DOMA. He knows Obamacare will be repealed after the election, so, he's giving us a look into the future, not the current. He will uphold DOMA....
