Swamp Your Representitive!

Recommended Posts

Your the one who is going to pay, or your parents, so go get another job.

indeed. i'm gonna be paying for all the bullshit that's gone on in this country the last few years. i simply have a problem calling every uninsured american lazy and unwilling to help their own situation. that's complete BS and the conservative movement does nothing but reinforce this and it's disgusting. trickle down is bullshit, our tax system is bullshit and i am behind anything that will help people to not suffer and die from treatable illness. our previous healthcare system was completely wasteful and profit-driven and it makes no sense to have an industry with an incentive to insure those who will not need medical care. i have no doubt this system will have its errors but it's a step in the right direction. i find it amusing people act like the constitution hasn't been completely shredded prior to this bill.

Resistance is futile.

Coming soon to a trailer park near you: Obama will be unleashing an army of hippie activists to wade through the trash and beer cans in your yard to take your guns.

Did I mention the sky is falling? :lol:

I'm fucking stoked this passed. A step in the right (correct) direction.

i never said any of that.

insurance profit driven?

do you have any idea how big the deals are that Obama cut with big pharma and the insurance industrys?

those evil profit takers need employees, and stock holders, you need profit to maintain all that.

so lets see, you want an organization to run this thing that runs a trillion dollar deficit every year, or a company that operates in the black? and can afford to provide good living wages to its employees, vacations, sick days etc? without the share holders PAYING to keep it operating? Cuz thats what we are, share holders in our govt, with a negative dividend. the services provided, while more than adequate, or provided at a much steeper price than the private sector.

I love free market economics. :P

now, khaxy, your getting your knickers in knot.

when you all start paying for it in taxes and fees, or the IRS checks your shit out to make sure you bought the [product, get back to me. I'll be patient and wait, i'll be dead in 25 yrs, so i'll be able to let you know about rationing, end of life options and care denial.

be careful what you wish for.

you dont get the baseline of this whole argument.

i'll say it again for the zillionth time:

If govt wasnt so big and intrusive, and wasteful, and expensive, we would all have better educations, better jobs, better health, and better lives.

it passed, so relax , and we shall see.

none of you said shit for the last 3 months, now your coming outta the woodwork. figures. sun shine soldiers in the fight, arnt ya? B)

16,000 new IRS agents will be hired to enforce this legislation.

Thats enough of a reason for me to kill it.

Even you deep Socialists gotta agree that a Federal Police force used to enforce health care purchases and fines is just fucked up!!

NO tort reform, NO competitiveness across state lines, Obama says this is just the incremental beginning of a single payer system.

It is un-Constitutional to force a citizen to purchase anything. Fuck the collective, leave me alone. I have confidence in my ability to make my way in this life.

This is just the beginning of more Pelosi grinning, her ear-to-ear plastic and $1000 Dior suits be damned.

Sign the Petition!!!

You guys should carpool with Al Gore to the supreme court to save some money.

LMAO your insane wingnut is right more bullshit for free loading illegals to get .

or for low income lazy assholes to get for people who actually work for there money .

I take it you found a job!! :lol: :lol:

The funny thing is, I saw an article about the numbers today, and the bottom line is that the hippy commie socialist version of healthcare we have in Western Europe does not only perform vastly better than the 'old' US system, it also costs about half in raw numbers. In terms of GDP, 10.2% (Belgium) vs 16% (US)

Higher life expectancy and quality of life go without saying.

I hate to give my money to the government as much as the next guy but I don't think anyone can disagree that the system that's currently in place in the US works efficiently on any level. Any amount of change should be welcomed. Even if it's a watered down compromised version that does little of what it set out to do.

As usual, the people who are most against it tend to know the least about it. BBC had an interesting article about something similar a while back Why people vote against their own interests

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_in_the_United_States

Funny, about the only comment in this thread I agree with and it comes from a European. I was in the hospital for a total of 12 hrs in 2009 and the final cost was $47,000 (sadly both trips could be linked to someone elses action). Even with insurance, paying 20% is fucking ridiculous!!

Pssss.....Numbnut poster boys who get their information from watching TV ;) "we are going to be up shit creek if this bill passes"!! WTF are we standing in right now???

Rewind 6 years ago>>> and if I remember correctly Bush was trying to block importation of drugs from Canada so the monopoly of bullshit could continue. Once again don't get me wrong, if republicans actually stood for what there name means I would be completely behind them.

I was actually hoping the Bill would not pass, so I could hear WINGNUT bitch about the hospital bill following his next yeast infection.

Either the government runs things and it's done hilariously inefficient, or you let the private sector handle things and they will a$$rape you and take you to the cleaners.

Rock <-> hard place.

Take for instance the policies of the ER's at many hospitals, which refuse care to no one, if they are willing to wait. What happens? They turn into primary care clinics for the uninsured, resulting in a completely inefficient model for those with actual problems.

Why can't we change the policy to allow refusal of care? Or black-list those who repeatedly come in for care that not an emergency? This decision would be based on some ruleset sorted out by a committee. Now I know someone's going to say it's crazy to let someone bleed in the streets because they will get turned away at the hospital because they couldn't afford ins. Which gets to the root of the problem, health care is stupid expensive, even for basic care. No one has any good ideas to force the health care industry to reduce their profit margins?

Any bill that has a nation divided should be a red flag. Obama hardly won the popular vote IIRC, and this health care bill was a pretty even split on the national polling. The next round of elections will show how the general public feels, especially as it will give some time for the implementation of a few components of this bill.

Claiming the private sector is out there to siphon money in any way works, but because of the free market, competition keeps prices reasonable. The problem is not "lazy" Americans or anything like that; it's more of American society experiencing a "lax" regulatory period and it got away from a lot of people. I would have much rather seen a Health Care bill geared towards the regulation of the health care, but nationalizing it was a little too much in my humble, still-developing, opinion.

Also...Swiss bank accounts...will we see a similar external health system set up on a swanky island somewhere for the elite? Partially kidding :lol:B)

Way to get personal, your a dick. I'd have to fuck your sister to get infected, but I'm faithfully married to the same woman for 23 yrs. By the way, my family has one of those Cadillac plans, so my cost would be negligible. I pay my premiums, and earned my health care thru education hard work and perseverance. And I have never said Republicans and Bush were better at this.

Hows that taste, fuck nut? You continue to post shit in this vein that shows you to be uniformed. My e snatch may hurt, but I dont have to deal with you on a personal basis. That being said, you have a big Edik and would never speak to me like that in person.

Stick to the subject, and keep it on topic. Personal attacks make you look small.

But ultimately you are entitled to your opinions, and I respect that. But you seem to be angry about something. You should move out of your parents house.

I frequently get tired of these lame debates with weak sauce arguments, no facts, and personal attacks. You,( not just Spanky) keep refusing to look at history, here and around the world, to see what will happen.

We shall see the outcome in due time. The last thing I want to say is,"I told ya so".

I have applied for a leave of absence from the Political Forum, I'm trying to lower my blood pressure so you guys dont have to pay for my heart and hypertension disability. B)

If you are tired of the lame debates and personal attacks you should not start these threads anymore....there are plenty of political forums out there where you can rant and rave. I know we've butted heads, nothings gotten personal, but do you really think VS is the place for this(a good percentage can't even use the spell check correctly here). Your time would be better served on a different site for these threads Sir. Let's talk cars bitches!!! :lol:

The reason we have this forum is so they don't do it in Off Topic. :)

There used to be members that ONLY posted in PD. I believe those people have all moved on, probably to conspircy websites.

Chrisssake, "Pegs v. Volans" can turn into a flame-fest on the interwebs. Trying to 'discuss' politics on the net is beyond ridiculous.
