Correction:

Everyone in the 60's should remember Love Street Light Circus.

Conservatives live in Bunkers, while dooming and glooming. Maybe this blues song will make you postive about America. I dedicate this song to all doomers and gloomers.



These guys were one of the best garage bands in houston in the 60's.

Medicare is for people over 65. And, it should not be changed, as these people are old and expected plan coverage throughout their lives

1) Rationing IS IN THE BILL. Here's how is will work.....If you cover more people with the same amount of money, hospitals, doctors and nurses.....Duh!!!!!.....SOMEON E is going to be cut out of the equation via RATIONING. You had better hope that it isn't you. Idiots out there.....If you can't figure this out, then you need to go back to third grade and listen really close in math class.
2) Lack of doctors/nurses. Who would want to be a doctor if all they would have to look forward to is the prospect of getting paid a low wage? Do any of you really want a doctor that is getting paid a paultry wage doing an operation on you??? If so, then come on over and I'll do an operation on you right on my front porch.
3) Illegals WILL BE COVERED despite what Obama says. There is no language contained in his "bill" with ways to check for someone who is here illegally. Obama INTENDS to make all illegals -- LEGAL. Joe Wilson was NOT lying. He was correct. He is a true patriot.
4) Abortions are covered in the bill via the fact that there is absolutely no language keeping it from being implemented. If this bill passes, the TAXPAYER will be paying for people to have sex, get pregnant without responsibility, and then abort the fetus. One of Obama's "Czars" is for forced sterlization and abortion. Obama himself is pro-abortion. Abortion is paid for, but treating an elderly person is not......Does this sound right to you, fool?
5) Death Panels (or whatever you want to call them) are included in this bill because a panel of WASHINGTON BEAUROCRAT's will be making decisions on WHO GETS COVERED and WHAT GETS COVERED. When you get too old, or too sick, you are a walking dead man, even if there is a cure or relief availabale. And don't think YOU will escape.......you will be over 65 before you know it......and then it will be YOUR TURN TO D-I-E, without medical care.
6) This "bill" is nothing more than a POWER GRAB. The "GOVMINT" (Obama) now owns the banks, the insurance companies, the car companies and he is working on taking over the electricity grid and then when he finally gets control of the way you STAY ALIVE.......your GOOSE IS COOKED. You are then living in the COMMUNIST STATES OF AMERICA.
7) TAXES WILL GO UP FOR EVERYBODY, except the Obama's PORCHSITTER voters. Taxes will go up a LOT, and Y-O-U will PAY, PAY, PAY, PAY until you are no longer to support yourself or your family and then you will be forced to go to SUCK off the "GOVMINT TEAT" or you will starve. Either way you lose everything that you have worked for (IF you even have a job at all).
If my elderly parents suffer one single time from this Obama-ramma Care, then I hold Barack Hussein Obama, our President, PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE for anything that they suffer. OBAMA WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY RATIONING, DENIAL OF services or DEATH due to his "so-called Healthcare" bill.
P.S. I have voted DEMOCRAT since 1972. I will NEVER VOTE DEMOCRAT AGAIN.

In spite of the fact the US pays over $8000 per person for health care we have the worst health care in the industrialized world.

http://medicalholocaust.blogspot.com/

1. America spends $7,290 per capita on health care, far more than other countries. That was in 2005. We now spend over $8,000 per capita.(Thanks to corporate gangsters running health care in the US)

2. America spent $2.4 trillion on health care in 2008. That's nearly as much as food, clothing, and national defense combined.(When they have us by the balls our hearts and minds will follow)

3. From 2000 to 2007, health care premiums increased 10.6% per year. In the same period, overall inflation averaged only 2.8%.(Greedy treasonous corporatist bastards hate America and Americans)

4. A majority of Americans complain that their doctors neither spend enough time with them nor respect them.(Most doctors are greedy arrogant fuckers)

5. Only 28% of U.S. doctors use electronic medical records. 90% do in the U.K.(That way the can more easily alter medical records to cover medical errors and/or commit billing fraud)

6. Most doctors in Europe are paid based on performance. In America, this is true with only 30 percent.(That's because greedy US doctors try to cram as many patient visits in a day as possible)

7. 41% of U.S. adults have problems paying medical bills and many are hounded by collection agencies.(Because US health care is TOO expensive. Given its quality it 90% too expensive)

8. American kids are three times as likely to be prescribed antidepressants than kids in Europe.(The corporate fascists have been dumbing down our kids for decades)

9. A quarter of Americans throw away prescriptions because they can't afford to fill them.(Being that most new medications do more harm than good maybe they are doing themselves a favor)

10. 42% of Americans said hospital staff do not always explain medicines and side effects.(More greed and arrogance! AND... they just don't give a shit!)

11. Health care spending dwarfs the $1.3 trillion of combined profitability generated by every corporation in America.(It's about control.)

12. A quarter of America's children have untreated tooth decay or cavities.(My dentist is old school and he does a lot of pro bono work for poor kids)

13. 20% of Americans report having had a lab, medical, or medication error (tied for worst with Australia).(This is not surprising. US health care is the worst in the industrialized world.)

14. Doctors spend $210 billion per year on procedures based on fear of liability, not patient need.(At least that is what those over paid incompetent malingerers claim.)

15. 30,000 infants die in the U.S. each year.(The US has a high infant mortality rate compared to many other countries.)

16. Compared to the British, Americans are three times as likely to have diabetes.(Diabetes is big money. Keep em fat and ignorant and take their money)

17. More than a quarter of Texans don't have access to affordable health care. 100% of Mexicans do.(Even poor third world country treats people better. At least Texas is really good and lethal injections. Yep, the doctors swab the victim's arm with alcohol.)

18. America has half as many doctors per capita as
Greece.(They say the Greeks invented buggering. The US health care system certainly perfected it.)

19. Medicare operates with 3% overhead. Non-profit insurance has a 16% overhead. Private insurance has a higher overhead, at 26%.(It kinda looks like Barney Frank was right about single payer.)

20. As health care costs escalate, even private insurers are making less money.
