ObamaKKKare funds Medicaid expansion at a higher rate than traditional Medicaid.....effectively a poison pill.......that will not last.....
once a state expands Medicaid, it will be politically difficult to retract the expansion....and the taxpayers will get screwed....
The Republicans have no problem denying health coverage to millions. Why do you think they won't take coverage away?

They voted to did it with food stamps showing they have no problem taking food off of children's table.

Obama hasn't made a decision his entire presidency. He has a lot of meetings with his elite inner circle but doesn't listen or reach out to anyone else for advise. Even ObamaCare was put into the hands of Reid and Pelosi. Obama is not in charge. Make no mistake. He would rather do nothing and make no decision than risk making the wrong one that would stain his legacy...which is in his own mind at this point.
And again...who finds fault with rigid convictions? What the heck is the alternative? Flimsy ones?
Mindless gibberish!

<quoted text>The VA provides care for or services patients that ordinary hospitals can't. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, amputees etc etc etc And then there are the PTSD cases.
But many, very many are seeking treatments in VA hospitals for injuries-illnesses-diseases that are not related to their military service. Some are showing up with stage three or stage four cancers, aortic aneurysm, out of control Type II diabetes, guy's who have abused their health and have no real medical history beyond a ER visit or two.
One of the Arizona VA cases was a guy with pancreatic cancer who had never sought treatment of any kind because he would have had to stop drinking__when he began pizzing blood his family took him to the VA rather than a community hospital. He died on a waiting list__but the VA had told him from day one that he needed to get his azz to an ER pronto.
He didn't want to not be able to smoke or drink__there are thousands like him out there.
I don't disagree with that, except hospitals treat traumatic injuries all the time. Tracy Morgan being the latest turnpike casualty.

The alternative to rigid convictions is a man with a complex mind that contemplates his actions before making them. A sign of superior intelligence.

So when has governing ever been about being "cool"?
It supposed to be about strength of character and having convictions to make the really tough decisions.
Most of us wouldn't mind following a democratic leader as long as we knew where the heck they were taking us.
It's been like wandering in the desert the past five years. Or dithering on a golf course that covers the same expanse.
There's nothing "cool" about not knowing who the heck is in charge.

I think the Republican party should be sued for cruelty to animals for using the Elephant as their symbol, I'm sure the Elephant isn't very happy about being down graded to that level. I think the Turkey or perhaps the Sloth should represent their party, but i'm sure they would complain also. Hell Eed you are even dumb enough to run on the bagger ticket.

SANFORD A judge on Thursday threw out part of George Zimmerman's libel suit against NBC Universal and held out the prospect that she may throw out the whole thing.

Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson tossed the allegations related to one of five broadcasts and said she needs to do more homework before deciding about the others.

Zimmerman is suing the media company, alleging that it falsely portrayed him as a racist

those folks from Red Mesa are particularly vicious racists....
of course, you do understand that the trademark cancellation has minimal effects on the Washington REDSKINS because of pooling of revenue....and that nothing prevents the REDSKINS from continuing to use their name and logo....
lol! Golden State is really pushing the boundaries.

Personally, I think the 5 people who brought this up are a bit over the top. I'm sure it'll affect Washington at some point where it hurts the most.. the pocketbook... but they can always change the name (never really liked the name or the colors in the first place!) or move.

But if "indians" wanted to make war with the "white man," this isn't the way to do it.

Yea, how dare anyone accuse him of being a racist because he hunted down a black kid after being told not to and killed him. Even if the pussee was getting his azz kicked he asked for it. I see Zimmerman like most of these sissies baggers on here.

Not sure what you meant there beyond that Tracy Morgan actually had a traumatic injury and was treated in an ER.

Pancreatic cancer (for one) is not a traumatic injury nor are any cancers. Abdominal aortic aneurysms are also not traumatic__until they burst__in which case fatal. Lifestyle diseases are common within the VA system__so called regular hospitals don't want to fk with those people beyond the cursory ER visit.

One admissions question is, "who is your doctor?"

Imagine a 60 year old telling the clerk, "I don't have a doctor, I've never seen a doctor except a couple of times in an emergency room in Pittsburg back in my twenties.

That shyt happens 500 times per day in Central Florida__the clerks just sit there wondering WTF.

Have you ever been at a VA hospital?

Not in__but at.
Yeah

What a pathetic excuse.

Evidently Republicans were so bothered about it that they put Clinton under oath & asked him about it.
