Unfortunately it may be too late by the time the hospital treats you. I didn’t get timely care and ended up in hospital two months with an expensive chronic condition that will never go away. Oh, and I have a minimum wage job; how much was I supposed to have in a savinghs account?
Mitt sponsored slavery?
And now he’s prepared to take the Romney disaster nationwide.
Getting the government OUT of healthcare would be the single best thing you could do to provide affordable healthcare to all.
Given the government’s track record, having the government do absolutely nothing else regarding healthcare is probably the most for which we can hope.
There is one field of medicine that has greatly expanded access, increased treatment options, and reduced costs. That is the field of Plastic Surgery and it is no accident that it is almost entirely paid for by the individuals who seek treatment. The government hasn’t had an opportunity to screw it up.
The dam@ stinking program would have never existed without federal money and federal approval from which was obtained on the support of the state U.S. Senators. That is how it worked. Remember? Fred did nothing to address it. He did everything to encourage Taxquist. But I got a feeling if Taxquist was running instead of Fred I'd be hearing major defense of him as well.

In all fairness, Mitt's veto was proven useless here.
Should he have vetoed on principle? Perhaps.
It would not have made a difference.
I am against the health care mandate altogether, so the point is moot.
The $50 abortions were thrown in by a judge. Romney had nothing to do with it.

As much as possible. Saving a decent amount each month should take priority over cable television, high speed internets, cell phone plans, other luxuries.
I was willing to cut Romney a lot of slack when he was here, but I disagree with the above. Yes, he should have vetoed on principle. However, his plans for a future run for the presidency precluded that.
Of course he should. What he DID was go along with a bloodthirsty court order, like a Good German.
What’s really sad is one said “for the children” sheesh. My wife is a C-5 quad and went way over six months without a doctor while Taxquist and our U.S. Senators fiddled. No doctor would take her because to take her as a Tenncare and Medicare patient it meant almost no payment nor could they bill us the difference. This was under Republicans not DEMs but the DEMs started it and the GOP decided it was time for them to get their cut of the Big HMO donor dollars too.
I want Fred as the GOP nominee, Hunter as his running mate. However, I will vote for any GOP nominee (Except Ron Paul) over any Democratic nominee, but Mitt is not what I consider a good candidate for the long run. He has too many liberal traits for the hardcore Conservatives and Religious Right, but if he heads the GOP ticket, he has my vote.
Nice teeth too! ;0)
Last time I checked, when TennCare was enacted in the first place, it was done under McWherter (a rodent), with Sasser and Gore/Mathews (more rodents) in federal office. You need to blame Scumquist for not doing the program to YOUR liking. Fred alone could not have just done what you’re suggesting and have expected to have gotten ANYTHING accomplished other than mass-scale public attacks and a swift defeat.
As for my excusing Scumquist if HE were running for President (whom was just as horrible a RINO Governor as Huckster and Joe Isuzu Romney), you are sadly mistaken. I was proud to have voted for his opponent in the 1998 election (both primary AND general). I wouldn’t have voted for him for dogcatcher.
Get government out of the health care business and allow the free market to follow its course. There is no constitutional right to free or subsidized health care. If there was such a right, we wouldn’t be a Republic. We’d be a socialist state.
Huck wants to fix that.
