Cheered on by a handful of activists, liberal House Democrats announced outside the Capitol that they were forming a caucus to push for "Medicare for All" - shorthand for government-financed health care.

Now you know the Senator, and the other Socialist Democrats are not going to like that. They want open borders, and free everything. I want to know who pays, because I think it is me!!!

Democrats have to be hard up to let Bob Casey talk for them. Can't wait till Lou Barletta replaces that buffoon.

Democrats are wrestling with talking about anything they want in the mid terms, because open borders, adopting MS13 gangbangers, coddling illegals, dismantling the Constitution, raising taxes and gun grabbing aren't popular.

The Athenians found a rich lode of silver in one of their mines.

There was a debate in the Agora about what to do with it.

While one faction argued for dividing it up among the citizens, another faction argued that it should be used to build a fleet of warships - the latter prevailed.

That fleet later defeated the Persian invasion of Greece.

Had the dividers prevailed the Persians would have erased the Greeks from history.

Democrats would have voted for dividing up the loot.

The only message they ever have-

Divide Up The Loot!

Comically dishonest, typical of your kind. Dems defended this nation AND our ally, Britain, before and during our involvement in WWII when Republicans would've kept us out and given the Nazis a potentially fatal head-start.

Stupid little wars and arms sales that start them are more the speciality of the ReTHUGgies. Oh, and interventions like Guatemala, Iran, and Chile - all reTHUGgie disasters.

Lying about those things is popular with you and other Russian trolls though, isn't it?

Not a shred of truth in your post.

Brainless nonsense. NO Dems have supported "open borders," that's just another lie and piece of provocation (tinged with racism) popular with your ilk.

You cannot be that stupid gleebile. I know you can spell, and I assume you can read. You must be under some influence of something. Democrats have not one thing to offer the American people in November. If you know of something they are going to do for Americans I would think you would want to share it. Anti Trump scandals are not working. They will just be ignored unless they are after January 20, 2017.

When a lot of people donít buy insurance, the cost of uninsured is passed on to you.

So how do you propose to encourage those who refuse to buy insurance?

And you donít get to say that hospitals can deny treatment. Laws would need to be changed for that to happen.

If I didn't pay for insurance, and went to the hospital, and didn't pay them, I would be sued for the money. You can no longer, after 4 generations, expect society to take care of you. Children, the sick, disabled, and elderly should be exempt, ALL others need to go to work, and buy their own insurance, or get it through the company they work for. We have jobs now, thanks to the President's policies, more jobs then those people looking. That is really what the Democrats are afraid of, people who work more then likely vote Republican. The Democrats have to keep their people barefoot, pregnant, and poor.

Ugh all them rethug disasters.

Gosh you left out that time Dems declared war on the United States because they didn't like a republican president - and that Dem who sent US troops storming ashore in Vietnam - and that Dem ambassador guy who said Britain didn't stand a chance against the Nazis so often they had to yank him out of the country.

You're absolutely right. Todays Democrats, MSM and education cartel are far more dangerous to our country than the Viet Cong or Nazis or Rooskies ever dreamed to be.

When people donít pay for insurance and donít pay their healthcare bills the cost gets passed on to those that do. The difference of course is now those that donít pay for insurance get insurance anyway paid for by those that do.
Hospitals deny treatment all the time to those that donít have insurance and donít pay thier medical bills. Hospital emergency rooms are only required by law to provide life saving emergency treatment.
The problem is not unaffordable insurance. The problem is that healthcare in the United States is several times more expensive than other countries and the reason is greed. Not from the insurance industry but from the medical and legal industries as well as government regulations but politicians Democrats in particular, refuse bite the hands that feed them.

If we would get rid of all illegal aliens and make legal immigrants have sponsors, we could cut our healthcare problem in half. We've allowed this problem to happen because Democrats and neocons idiotically refuse to enforce our laws.
