I do not owe you a single dime. Period. If you think differently sue me. In all probability you owe me for the food stamps, free healthy care and rent subsidies you depend on.

Now when do we find out how many signed up for the higher premiums and deductibles yesterday?
Because I'm dying to know.

O have no idea how many signed up yesterday. But I do know this, the vast majority signed up for Medicaid.

Despite your frequent and lame attempts to inject a straw man into your replies, IPAB's function is to decide which lifesaving treatments will be paid for and which ones, because of cost, a chronic condition, and/or advanced age, will be denied."
Programs to manage health care utilization have existed for more than twenty years. You were just too ignorant or uninterested to be aware of them. They are no different the IPABs.

"Early efforts focused on reducing the number of inpatient admissions and eliminating unnecessary hospital days. To achieve this objective health plan administrators reviewed the hospital admission for medical necessity prior to the admission (precertification) and determined the need for ongoing care (concurrent review). For cases that were not part of initial review, they applied the process retrospectively.

"Almost every provider or payer sponsored utilization management program includes preadmission and concurrent review. Typical characteristics of these two components are:

Collection of data about diagnosis, required services, diagnostic test results, and symptoms

Review of criteria that describe the conditions or services to support the care request

Comparison of medical information to medical necessity criteria

Referral of case to physician review if criteria are not met

Physician determination of medical necessity

Communication of review outcome

Right of physician to appeal decision"

Pre-existing conditions could have been legislated separately without Obama and the IRS taking over our lives and telling us what insurance coverage we HAVE to buy whether we want it or need it or not causing a major upheaval in everyone's lives. This is not the change we were hoping for. And anyone who thinks it is just hasn't lived long enough to know it isn't.

If the poor are denied health insurance, the GOP alternativem they may die before they can vote! Another voter ID republican program ?

Panic seems flowing through the veins of the tea party at the prospect of health care being provided to Americans.

Grief counseling is a form of psychotherapy
that aims to help people cope with grief and mourning
following health care being provided to Americans,
or with major life changes that trigger feelings
of grief as the results of the 2012 elections

THE PRESIDENT IS NOT A LIER!!!
I believe in this more strongly than I ever had before. People say the President is a liar. I don’t know about that. He has been very honest in telling people what he was going to do and how he was going to be the great equalizer. He was going to give everybody their fair share. Then he even said it should be on the backs of the wealthy. Well if you make more than $50K a year you must be wealthy.
Most of the taxes passed are recessive taxes. Which means they are passed onto the working poor and middle classes respectively? The less you make the more you pay. Now also finding out that Bill Aires actually wrote Presidents Obamas Autobiography because the president did not know enough about himself. I do know people use ghost writers all the time. Then again Aires might know the President better than anyone else maybe even his wife? I digress

The few good things in Obamacare - pre-existing conditions being one of them - could have been legislated separately without Obama and the IRS taking over our lives and telling us what insurance coverage we HAVE to buy whether we want it or need it or not.
And causing a major upheaval in everyone's lives when only 15% of Americans weren't happy before.
We needed changes - but not giving up our individual rights to make our own choices.
Do you not see what's wrong with that?
What upheaval?
You're not even affected...most likely don't even know anyone affected.
Hyperbole.

Here's a link to her source but you have to look beyond the "Grand Total." Since it includes contributions made by employees of Fannie & Freddie it is unfair to say the Dodd, Obama and Kerry received more from Fannie & Freddie than anyone else.
Chris Dodd received $165,400 but only $48,500 of that was from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Campaign Pacs. Obama received $126,349 but only $6,000 was from the Pacs and John Kerry received $111,000 of which only $2,000 was from the Fannie & Freddie Pacs.
Now, compare that to John Boehner who received $67,750.$60,500 of which was from the Pacs. Eric Cantor received $48,500. All but $2,000 was from the Pacs and Mitch McConnell received $41,000 all but $1,000 of which was from the Fannie & Freddie Pacs. In reality, these three received far more from Fannie & Freddie than Dodd, Obama or Kerry.

What is your point in all of this ranting?

The sum totals contain all the moneys from Fannie & Freddie. Period

Why are you discounting moneys received from the employees?

Are you fuzzy in the head tonight especially?

As to which of the two parties is more permissive of corporate scams, take a wild guess.

You just admitted both parties permit corporate scams. That's a great defense, Perry Mason.

Just exactly how do you think "every state will be bankrupt by 2017" if States will receive 100 percent federal funding for the first three years to support the expanded coverage, phasing down to no less than 90 percent federal funding in subsequent years? You are making no sense.
"States will receive 100 percent federal funding for the first three years..."
